The ancient Egyptians believed that wedding bands are rings that seal two lovers’ fate to eternity. Whilst the tradition has never died down, wedding bands have only taken on more meanings over centuries. Through the years customers have approached Carrie K. to create their wedding bands and imbue their own meanings into their rings. From secretive, hidden messages to the extravagant love declarations, each band is as unique as their love.
Step by Step, Chapter by Chapter: A Love Story in a Wedding Ring
Carrie K.'s wedding rings have been meticulously designed to encapsulate your love story. From the selection of the ring metals to the sourcing of your desired gems, a ring is only as precious as the meanings and details that you hold dear to your heart. At Carrie K., our wedding rings are customisable with the following metals:
14/18K White/Yellow/Rose Gold
The classic choice of metals for most couples, gold is timeless, versatile and available in a range of colours and density. Gold is often a symbolism of abundance and prosperity, but it also represents love, wisdom and compassion.
A rare, silverish-white metal that resembles silver in appearance but sturdier. Taking the same name as the treasure stolen from Troy, it is associated with protection and safety. Unlike gold, palladium is malleable and cannot be scratched off from its surface, making it a durable metal for wedding rings.
Harder than even palladium, platinum is one of the rarest and hardiest metals on earth. Unlike silver, platinum does not tarnish but maintains its shine and lustre forever. It is this quality that platinum is regarded as a metal of purity and infinite love.

Opposites Attract is the union of two different personalities and is reflected by two metals on the ring. With chemistry (in every play of the word) the two metals and individuals will meld together over time. Our couples love the ring as the chosen metal-pairs are fully customisable and can be worn in two ways. The singularity and uniqueness of the ring is a symbol that there will never be --nor will they ever have to choose -- another.
When Carrie K. first designed for one of our couples C&A, they had wanted a pair of wedding rings that was minimalistic yet would only be special to them. The Better Together ingeniously etches both their initials on the rims of each ring that would only be legible if they are placed side-by-side -- because love only makes sense when they are together and not apart.
Carrie K. first made the Soulmate rings for a couple who had vastly different tastes for their wedding rings. The bride-to-be had wanted a feminine eternity band, whilst the groom-to-be wanted something simple. We eventually etched the bride's ring design behind the groom's ring -- a symbolism that what might appear different outwardly could still be closer to each other inwardly.

1. Measure your fingers at the end of day as your finger size will be different at different times of the day.
Fingers tend swell up during the course of the day as your blood pressure rises.
2. Measure your finger size 3 to 4 times to get a more accurate measure.
3. Your fingers might also swell if you are pregnant or if you are on medication. Take this into account when measuring your fingers.
Here are some tips on how you can measure your finger:
First, cut a cardboard strip measuring 0.5cm wide and 15cm long.
Then, wrap the cardboard around the finger to be sized.
Once it’s done, slide the cardboard up to the knuckle, as the ring must be sized large enough to able to slip off and on, over the knuckle.
Next, use a pen to mark on the cardboard where the long end overlaps.
Measure the mark from the end of the length of paper or string with a ruler.
Locate your ring size by locating your measurement against our size chart.
Should the measurement falls in between two sizes, we recommend that you choose the larger size.
