Based in Banbury, Oxfordshire Gavin Mack offer unique bespoke handmade wedding rings in Gold, Platinum and Palladium Offering a Personal service so you can be confident your rings will meet your requirements & be made to the highest standard
With more than 20 years experience of designing and making wedding jewellery, I can give professional advice and help to design any wedding jewellery.
I have built up an excellent reputation by providing trade wedding jewellery for individual customers, and also by making wedding jewellery for many independent jewellers around the country.
My philosophy is quite simple: the customer is at the heart of what I do. Every piece of wedding jewellery is crafted by my own hands; created and produced in my own workshop. I offer a unique, personal service so that you can be confident your wedding jewellery will be created to the highest standard. Using my professional opinion I can recommend what best compliments your engagement ring.
I work with gold, platinum and palladium mainly or your own old gold but can also supply any other metals you require.
Gavin made a bespoke wedding ring for me. My ring is exquisite and Gavin made it such an easy process. Don’t choose anyone else...
I could not recommend Gavin enough, he had been amazing! Looking for a ring was actually a very daunting and quite isolated process. I tried to read a lot about different types of metals and gems. In addition I knew I wanted to find a ring which is understated but elegant. This is because my girlfriend (now fiancée) doesn’t wear jewellery and doesn’t want anything too bright and sparkly. I knew I wanted a sapphire ring though, however most sapphire rings come with diamond, apparently to make it sparkle more - I wanted the opposite, what a mission! As we live in Birmingham, it made sense to check out the Jewellery Quarters as I know my girlfriend would want to support local businesses, however I couldn’t find anything which isn’t too bright or too contemporary. I even looked online and found a place in the Cotswold; as the jeweller sold ethical jewellery, however the prices were over my budget and I didn’t feel that my requests were heard (ring size measurements were not aligned, gem shape wasn’t what I wanted). I even checked out London, but I found them too impersonal and was always pushing for me to go for palladium (even though my girlfriend said she doesn’t want palladium). Anyways I thought I’ll look online again for custom made rings in Birmingham and found Gavin! He was very quick at responding back to me and listened to my request. He gave me a selection of sapphires to choose from and told me, from his experience and knowledge, which are the better quality ones. The estimated cost was also around my budget so it worked out well. I liked the fact that he is based in the jewellery quarter as that is special for the ring. I also came to realised that I was putting too much emphasis on making sure the materials were ethical, however Gavin had helped me understand that he uses recycled metal and that is as ethical as he can get. Which is true because Fairtrade platinum doesn’t actually exist. It is also difficult to trace the gem’s origin too but he found out from his supplier where the gem is sourced. I read up enough to know that gems from that area are mined under strict conditions. I felt that other jewellers tries to use the word Fairtrade to charge more and not being entirely honest that it is limited to how ethical these material can reach. With Gavin it wasn’t like that. He is a honest and knowledgable jeweller who is keen to make the best ring at your request. He didn’t make me feel that i was asking stupid questions throughout the way; which is very nice of him, as I was completely lost most of the times. I fully recommend Gavin, he is very down to earth, good designer and jeweller. I like that he isn’t part of a large mainstream jeweller and is a small local business.
Working with Gavin was so easy and such a joy. He returned my email enquiry with a phone call and was so knowledgeable about his craft that I felt instantly reassured that he’d exceed my expectations. Although a simple design, Gavin phoned me at each stage of the design, making and engraving process and frequent photos were sent to show progress and confirm that my vision was the same as his. The final product was amazing and I wear it with pride daily. Thank you for surpassing my hopes in making a memory that I can wear.
First class service and a first class craftsman. We searched around for like-for-like quotes and nothing came close. He was happy to talk through the design with us and we've ended up with two rings we're really happy with. Also helps Gavin's a nice chap who really knows his trade. Would highly recommend him.

If you want a beautiful piece of jewelry, that you will not see on someone else, look no further. Gavin has made me a couple of one off rings and a dolphin pendent, all of which are perfect and made to the highest standard and with first class stones. I always get comments when I wear any of my pieces.
I was referred to Gavin Mack Jewellery from a friend that had bought is wedding jewellery from him a few years earlier. I dealt with solely with Gavin via text and email only, and have never had a better experience in buying something. I compared the quality and size of the gems that Gavin sourced (a rare pair of matching Columbian Emeralds) and found his prices unbeatable. Having easy access to Hatton Garden jewellers I checked 5 other places and none of them offered as much stone for the price, anywhere near as helpful or genuine. I gladly recommend Gavin Mack Jewellery to anyone thinking of buying anything he offers. I will definitely be buying my future jewellery from him.
Amazing bespoke engagement and wedding rings made in less than 2 weeks. Excellent friendly & personal service. Outstanding quality for the most competitive price we found (after substantial research). Thank you Gavin :-)
We'd been struggling to find a wedding ring to fit my unusual shaped engagement ring (and dare I say it, I am a bit fussy!), and I really wanted to use my Great-Grandmother's wedding ring for sentimental value. After reading the reviews on here I contacted Gav, and he couldn't have been more approachable or helpful! His knowledge and experience was obvious from the minute we met; he really put me at my ease and we discussed a range of options (he has lots of beautiful examples of his work to look at) . I picked the finished piece up today and am soooooo pleased - I really love it and my family will be so proud to see the heirloom ring being worn (in a style more keeping with the times!), I can't rate Gavin Mack highly enough. Thank you Laura and Chris
We contacted Gavin after being recommended by a friend. we were struggling to find a wedding band due to my engagement ring being bespoke and an unusual shape. Gavin was extremely helpful and we cannot recommend him highly enough. He has made the most wonderful wedding band which fits perfectly against the engagement ring.
Ben and Tracey
I contacted Gavin after seeing his website as I was looking for a fitted wedding ring to be made to fit my unusually shaped engagement ring. I had contacted other jewellers but was shocked at how expensive the quotes were and how long they needed to retain my engagement ring for (6 weeks). From the moment we met Gavin he provided honest advice on how to design the ring and the best metals to use. He had my engagement ring for just one week and in that time created the wax model. He also returned my engagement ring recoated and polished, looking like new for no cost! We were so impressed we ordered both of our rings from Gavin, and they took a couple of weeks to make. We collected our rings yesterday and we are both so pleased with them. Mine could not be a closer match to my engagement ring, its perfect! I would highly recommend Gavin to anyone looking for beautiful customised rings at reasonable prices, plus great customer service and advice.
Colleen & Michael
We got in touch with Gavin after he was recommended to us by friends, and so glad we did! We are very happy with both of our wedding rings and I now have one that fits perfectly with my engagement ring, something I was struggling to find at any high-street jewellers. Gavin was helpful, friendly and gave great advice on how best to design the rings, even putting my partner at ease with wearing a ring for the first time in his life! We received great service and advice, amazing customised rings and all at a reasonable price. Thank you Gavin, we cannot recommend you highly enough!

My fiancÃ© and I met Gavin at Weston manor wedding fair early this year, and decided we would contact him when it came to getting our rings, as we had initially wanted something quite plain and liked the fact that his prices weren't as extortionate as those of high street shops. We met with him and had a chat, and he showed us various prototypes. I had seen an engraved ring in a shop, and gave him a very blurry photo and asked if he could make something similar. Two weeks later, he had made the mose beautiful prototype, fully engraved with extremely intricate scroll work. We collected our finished rings yesterday, and are blown away by how stunning they look. We are so impressed with Gavin's work, from his helpful advice and styling through to the excellent craftsmanship of the rings, not to mention the fact that our rings cost less than they would from the high street, and look a million times better. Both mine and my partners rings look fabulous, and we can't wait to wear them. Thank you so much Gavin, we can't recommend you highly enough!!
I cannot recommend Gavin highly enough, we gave him an old ring we owned and asked that he re-design it to fit round my current engagement ring. The result was stunning, my wedding ring fits perfectly into my engagement ring and includes stones from the oldring in a new setting.
Gavin made both my engagement ring as well as wedding rings for my future husband and myself. Right from the moment we met Gavin his knowledge and passion was evident and he was very friendly and welcoming. All the three rings are stunning yet individual and have received so many compliments, and I would definately recommend him to anyone!
We were very impressed with Gavin's work. I was looking for drop earrings in a particular design and couldn't find any. He gave us some very sound honest advice, and on it I bought some stud earrings online and he converted them into drops seamlessly - they are completely perfect. He also works with an engraver who was able to hand engrave a personal message in an unknown script onto the insides of our wedding bands, as naturally as if he were familiar with it. Truly skilled workmanship. What a team!
My husband and I met Gavin at a wedding fayre, at Weston Manor Hotel in 2010 and we just knew he was the man we wanted to make our wedding rings. The service that he provides is second to none. You always feel totally relaxed and confident in his ability to provide you with exactly what you are looking for, and in our case exceeded our expectations of how our wedding rings would look. My engagement ring is an unusual shape, but Gavin was able to make wedding ring that fitted perfectly with it, and they look beautiful. He is a very skilled, true craftsman and we were amazed with how beautiful both our rings are. We can not recommend him highly enough, and have already passed his details onto friends who are getting married later in the year.
We had wedding rings made for both myself and my husband and the quality of both the service and the rings are fantastic. My husband had a simple wedding band made from Titanium however, I was in need of a bespoke wedding ring to fit my engagement ring. Gavin took a mould of my engagement ring and made a gorgeous wedding bang to fit perfectly to it. The process of designing the wedding band with Gavin was exciting and a very pleasing experience. We would wholeheartedly recommend Gavin Mack Jewellery to anyone in need of Jewellery made with a personal touch. The combination of me engagement ring and wedding ring attracts so many positive comments - it's beautiful, thank you. In addition Gavin made me some personalised cufflinks which was a surprise wedding gift to my husband. Just like the rings these were great and the quality of cufflinks are fantastic.
We met Gavin at Eynsham Hall Wedding fair, and instantly thought it would be great to him design and make our wedding rings. Ross and I didn’t really have any idea what we would like for the rings, just that we wanted it to fit with my engagement ring. Gavin’s advice and help was brilliant in helping us design our bespoke rings. After only a few days, he had the mould ready and only weeks after that we had our final rings. We couldn’t have been happier with the quality and craftsmanship that Gavin has done. We have recommended Gavin to friends who are also getting married and would also recommend to anyone thinking of having their rings specially made for any occasion. Thank you again Gavin, our rings are just perfect, we couldn’t be happier with the service and quality you have provided. p.s. we would have given you 10 stars if they had let us!!!

After several unsuccessful visits to jewellery shops and websites, I picked up one of Gavin Mack's business cards and we decided it might be quite special to have our wedding rings made. From the initial meeting, where he showed us a number of designs to try on, we knew Gavin was the person for the job. He was extremely knowledgable as well as passionate about his work, not to mention welcoming and friendly. I wasn't 100% sure I liked anything to start with, but Gavin took my engagement ring and within a week had designed a wedding ring sample he'd based on the things I had said in our meeting. As well as this he made a wax model to show me how it would fit against my engagement ring. Both my fiance and I ordered rings and just a few weeks later they were ready to collect. We are so pleased with the quality and reasonable prices of our beautiful rings and can't wait to wear them. We can't fault the service we have received. It has been lovely to feel part of the design process for our rings as we and would happily recommend Gavin to anyone. Thank you Gavin :-)
I came across Gavin at a wedding fair and his work is absolutely billiant! I have an unusual shaped engagement ring and couldn't find anything in the shops to go with it but Gavin made me a wedding band that fits against it perfectly! Upon meeting him for the first time we chatted about what kind of ring I wanted and I left my engagement ring with him so he could make the wax model. A week later I was back to try the wax model with my engagement ring and to decide on what stones I wanted. A couple of weeks later I was back for the finished product which is absolutely beautiful! I can't praise Gavin's work enough and would throughly recommend him!
Teresa & Barney
Gavin made my wife engagement ring and our wedding rings and we couldn't of asked for anything more. My wife and I were very pleased with the end result. He gave us a free consultation to help us decide on what was right for us both. His assurance to get it right was second to none and the price was perfect for our budget! We have recommended Gavin to family and friends who have all said the same thing.
James & Nicola
Gavin made my sister's engagement ring so I already had first hand experience of the quality and beauty of his work. So when I got engaged it was an easy decision to make as to who would make my own engagement ring. I had a few ideas of what I wanted the ring to look like and Gavin's experience and knowledge was instrumental in helping me arrive at my final decision. Gavin gave very honest advice and his enthusiasm and personal dedication to making the ring perfect made me have absolute confidence in him. Gavin is a exceptionally skilled jeweller and I really love the fact that I have a unique ring which has been hand crafted and is definitely one of a kind. I can not recommend Gavin highly enough, He is one of the most genuine people I have ever met and my sister and I will also be having our wedding rings made by him.
I found Gavin through a weddng fayre and found he lived in the same town as us. We mentioned about using him to some friends of ours who instantly knew him and said how great he was. Me and my future husband wanted different styles in rings, we found some designs we liked and took them to Gavin who helped us pick styles that would suit us more, from weight of metal, to thickness of band that would suit us. He was great with every detail, we felt like we were in great hands. The prices we got were much better than the ones we had seen in shops and knowing it was a style made for us made it so much more special. We just picked up our finished rings this weekend and they are perfect, i will wear it with pride! I have already been spreading the word about Gavin's work and will continue to do so! If we ever wanted anymore pieces the first place i would go is to Gavin now, so much nicer then dealing with a store taught member of a retail chain store! Gavin thank you again for all your hard work and skill, Kelly & Simon

Gavin was recommended to me by a friend in work, I was very impressed by the amount of detail and craftmanship that had been put into his wedding ring. After contacting Gavin by phone we were warmly welcomed into his home to discuss our ideas and to see what extra details we could have. It is very evident that Gavin is extremely knowledgable about jewellery, but at the same time he is very approachable and always endeavours to suit your needs. We've now taken delivery of our wedding rings, and my future wife is absolutely thrilled with them. The finish to the bands is very good and the stones are of a really high quality. We were som happy with the results we have also ordered some pendants from Gavin too. We would highly recommend Gavin Mack Jewellery to anybody.

We found Gavin through a local wedding fayre. His knowledge and experience coupled with his keen eye for detail & creativity grabbed our attention. My engagement ring has a very unique profile, so to be able to have my wedding band made to fit, was a definate plus point. The process of having meetings with Gavin at his home made things so much more relaxed. He gave honest and open guidance including full transparency on costs. My future husband wanted something a little different for his wedding band - again Gavin didn't dissapoint offering a unique band, personalised with our wedding date engraved in roman numerics - truly a one off! Thanks Gavin, for your hospitality, your relaxed and professional approach to providing us with definately the most important jewellery we are likely to buy. Great to bring our ideas to life through your creative skill, we wont hesitate to contact you in the future!!
The Carters to be
Our experience of Gavin Mack Jewellery has been exceptional. From the initial meeting and consultation Gavin shared a wealth of knowledge and experience in designing and making wedding rings/bands. I have an emerald cut diamond engagement ring with a band that had a rare curve to its shape. Gavin was able to make the wedding band so it matched the engagement ring perfectly. The attention to detail was exceptional. Gavin was also able to engrave, by hand, the date of our wedding on the inside of the wedding band. I would recommend Gavin Mack Jewellery for all your wedding (and non wedding) jewellery requirements. It is nice to know that such a genuine guy still makes all of his jewellery with traditional methods, making the end product that bit more special.
We have just brought a his and hers wedding band from gavin and we are over the moon. His attention to detail was amazing right from the start. Natalie has a platinuim engagement ring so we wanted to stay platinuim. At the first visit Gavin drew some designs to fit around the claw and diamond and showed us some designs he had brought home with him. Gavin then took away Natalies ring and made a wax model of what we had asked for. This helped so much as we could judge what the rings would sit like together. He also straighten one of the claws and gave it a polish, it looked brand new again (free). After chatting about what diamonds would go where we agree to purchase these rings. His - platinium 6mm medium weight and Hers - platinuim 2.5mm with 7 diamond. Two weeks later and the rings were ready and they were beyond our expectations. natalie was looking at hers sparkle all the way home. Overall i would definately recommend Gavin as he is an expert in his field. Also he puts so much attention to detail into his work. His prices are definately the icing on the cake as after much searching and quotes from jeweller he was the cheapest by a good couple of hundred pound. Gavin is not a pushy sales man and he will tell you anything you ask about jewellery. We are going back to him for our bridesmaid/bestmans presents which we discussed when pick up the rings. The best bit of advise we could give if your looking for jeweller is give Gavin a call
