Frequently asked questions

I love the kit, but I would prefer to have a gold ring instead!
This is definitely possible too! 
Make your own ring is a kit where the costs of silver are already included in the kit.
Because the price of gold is significantly higher, the best way of pricing is based on weighing the model of your creation. This means you only pay for what you have designed!
Just buy a regular MYOR kit, return your wax model the same way as usual and write on our form that you prefer 14k gold. Once I've received your ring, I will weigh it and send you a quote and payment link. 
If you do end up finding this a little too much, you can of course change to silver again and don’t pay any additional costs! 

Can I pay by bank transfer or with Ideal? (The Netherlands)
Yes you can!
Ideal payment and bank transfers are not yet integrated into this website. Just use the contact form (located at the top of the page) or email me to let me know what you're interested in. Don't forget to include your name and address. I'll send you a payment link as soon as possible and the kit will be on it's way to you!

Can I add an engraving to my ring?

Ofcourse! Anyhting is visible, just engrave the wax model with a needle for example. It does sometimes help to write me a note about it, so I see it in the wax!

How long does it take before my ring will be cast in silver?

After receiving your wax model it will take up to 4-6 weeks before I will send back your masterpiece.

Can I buy the kit in a shop too?

Yes definitely!
Right now you can find Make your own ring at:
Zilvermuseum Schoonhoven (NL)
Arnhem Museum (NL)
Lovendahl Copenhagen (DK)

Can I add stones to the ring?

This is sadly not possible, since stone setting and gemology just makes it too complicated for a ring making kit. Almost all stones break from the heat of casting.
It is however possible to bring your ring to a goldsmith and have them set the stone in silver!
You are welcome to write Sophia Zobel, maybe she can help you with adding a stone afterwards
