white gold diamond baguette engagement rings

I was recently commissioned to make a set of 18ct white gold engagement and wedding rings. My client doesn’t wear much jewellery and didn’t want anything to blingy or showy. But wanted something simple in an art deco style with a contemporary twist. She liked the simplicity of my engagement ring designs and wanted something different from the norm. We discussed various options with different shapes and sizes of diamonds. Here is the original design inspiration

The client decided to go with a single baguette diamond off centre so that when the wedding band was worn with the engagement ring, the design was complete.

I really enjoyed making this set and handmade the setting to fit the stone, then finally set the diamond. It was exciting but scary and am so pleased I had the opportunity to tackle this challenge.

The rings were also to be rhodium plated. The natural colour of 18ct white gold is a duller gun metal so it requires rhodium plating to give it a slightly whiter, brighter, silver look. This coating will come off over time and will require replating each year, depending on how rough you are with your hands. The finished egagement ring is matt finish with the wedding band being highly polished to create a nice contrast.

The customer was extremely happy with the rings, saying Wow! Super Wow! Genna knew exactly what we were hoping to achieve and did wonders, turning our very rough pencil sketch into my most-treasured possession!

Can't thank you enough it was exactly as we asked for and a lot more x better start saving for the Eternity ring you're going to be making next for June .... a very happy couple xx


My family bought me a voucher for a 1:1 workshop to make a silver ring for my Birthday. Genna's workshops are informative in the process of jewellery making and good fun. Genna has a lovely teaching style.

Best of all you go home with a beautiful ring you made.

I would definitely do another workshop and if I could give Genna 10 stars I would. Thank you.


Picked up my Wedding Ring today and words can't describe how happy I am. It looks amazing. Few wee (happy) tears on the way home. Thank you so much. p.s. thank you from my "Mum" too xxx


Genna design recently carried out a repair on my wife's engagement ring. I could not fault Genna's workmanship and the cost of the repair was very competitive. I would not hesitate to return in the future.


I had a fantastic time on Saturday, thanks Genna for being patient. Love my ring. Robert asked what I was making next so I might be back. Thanks once again for a great day x


Had a lovely day with Genna making our wedding rings! What a great touch to add to our special day! Would definitely recommend her to anyone looking to make their wedding rings, more than just a ring!

Genna created my engagement and wedding ring and they are absolutely beyond perfect! She really took her time at the initial consultation and went over all of the tiniest details - when we got the pictures of the finished rings I was totally blown away - they were exactly what I had pictured in my head, if not better!!


Genna, it was lovely to meet you last evening and I just wanted to drop you a line to say thank you for the beautiful necklace. It is truly gorgeous. What a talent you have. I've not taken it off since last Thursday! I was even wearing it for Crufts all weekend!

Keep following your dream!

As Alison and Ron’s neighbours we have witnessed first hand this special and devoted love and the beautiful commission pieces you made reflect beautifully their enduring love . Alison wears them with humble pride.


Today my mother enjoyed her Christmas treat from us – a four hour ring making class with jeweller Genna Delaney. She totally loved it and has made a wonderful ring. She reckons Genna is a natural teacher. As a former head teacher she’s good at spotting such talents. If you want to learn jewellery making then Genna is the person to see!

Genna has lots of lovely jewellery to buy. The best things are bespoke though. She made me a few unique items using much loved heirlooms and updating them.
