Our rings from W.R Metalarts came out so amazing!

Working with them through the custom design process was easy, fun, and unique.

We had found W.R Metalarts when searching for ideas for non-traditional engagement rings and my fiance and I are so happy to have worked with them to create our one of a kind rings. Not only do the rings look amazing, but we know they were sourced and made in a sustainable way. Can't wait to work on our wedding bands next!

-Christine M

My fiancé and I worked separately with WR Metalarts to design custom engagement rings and the team was amazing!

We are in love with our rings and they are beyond anything that we would have ever imagined! Although we designed our rings separately, they complement each other perfectly! Our rings are beautiful and unique, and inspired by nature. We are honored to have worked with a small business based on ethical principals.

The thought of custom designing a ring was daunting, but the team made it easy and walked us through each step of the process with a series of zoom calls and emails. They were more than happy to schedule zoom calls when I needed help with the design elements. Communication was excellent, with all questions answered along the way. The team was very fun to worth with, and you can tell that they genuinely care about their clients and their work. We can’t wait to work with WR Metalarts to design our wedding bands and plan to use them for any future jewelry needs as well!

Will and Rosie crafted a family heirloom for me!

I cannot tell you enough about how amazing it was to work with Will and Rosie on this project. Their professionalism and craftsmanship knows no bounds. I'm a Vermont native and I had always wanted a Vermont craftsmen to construct a wedding band for me. Will went above and beyond with this project. I happened to have my Grandfather's gold wedding band in my possession, however, I had always wanted a wooden wedding band. Will, was able to take my Grandfather's ring and without recasting the metal he was able to reshape the ring into my size. He then took applewood from Rosie's family farm in Vermont and shaped the wood into a band that now encapsulates my Grandfather's wedding band. This ring is full of detail, history, and meaning to not only me but also to my family.
As I said, I cannot say enough about my experience with Will and Rosie. If you happen to come across them I can assure you they will craft you one of your most treasured possessions!

I had an amazing experience purchasing this ring for my husband...

We eloped in March and I didn’t have the time to get him a wedding band. I was using my great grandmother’s from 1922 and I wanted him to feel he had the same sentimental attachment to his ring. He wanted something wood-inspired and this was perfect. I was worried about getting it in time for our “first kiss” anniversary on the summer solstice and the team was so helpful in making sure that happened!
The ring arrived in beautiful packaging a few days ahead and I was able to surprise him with something stunning that we will have for as long as my ring has lasted! It is finely made and fits very well (accurate to his size 9). Would highly recommend the friendliness, craftsmanship, and dedication to service and design!

Mackenzie K.

Will did an amazing job crafting a set of rustic wedding rings for me and my husband.

The design process was fun and collaborative, and the final products fit within our ring budget.
Thanks Will! Two thumbs up!

Samantha A.

Fantastic jewelery!

Great to see handmade, responsibly sourced, unique, and beautiful pieces.
The custom rings are amazing.

Andres G.

I cannot say enough good things about the WR Metalarts crew.

They were so incredible to interact with, thoughtful, patient, and wonderful designers.
Just the best non stressful experience!

Helena M.

Jessica and the WR Metalarts team were absolutely amazing!!!!

I loved every part of the interaction. I really couldn't have asked for anything better.

Brandon T.

I had an idea - Will made it a beautiful reality.

He kept me informed during the project, cost was fair, final packaging was delightful.
I will definitely buy again from him, both custom orders and items from his shop!

Lora W.

Will nailed all the details we talked about.

It wasn't a part of the wedding I was particularly focused on, but it's become one of my favorite elements post-wedding. I smile every time I look at it. It's wonderful craftsmanship, affordable, and imbued with so much meaning. And great people to boot! Highly, highly recommended.

Jake M.

My partner saw the beautiful Mokume Gane ring and immediately fell in love with it!

It is absolutely gorgeous and unique, and I couldn't dream of getting her anything else. The whole team at WR Metalarts did an amazing job from start to finish, and I would highly recommend working with them. The pandemic threw a bit of a wrench in all of our plans, but they kept me updated throughout the process and worked hard to get me the ring. I appreciate everything!

Now, to pop the question when the time is right!

Manda H.

Will and Rosie are the absolute best!!

They helped me every step of the way to craft the most amazing, one-of-a-kind engagement ring! They helped me through every stage of the design process, with any questions I had. They were friendly, kind and professional! They really care about the people they work with and I highly recommend them for any custom work you are looking to do!

(PS: She said yes!!)

Jonathan Y.

Loved working with Will and Rosie on every detail of my band.

Their passion for design, craftspersonship, and customer service is amazing.Every aspects of the design process, cost and time frame was explained, and any delay was promptly addressed in an email. It was a very personal experience even though it was via email. I can't wait to visit their shop in Vermont and meet them in person. Packaging is simple and elegant.

Eve L.

Will designed and made my engagement ring and our wedding rings.

It was a wonderful, comfortable, and affirming experience in an industry that is difficult to get comfortable interacting with as a LGBTQ couple. The rings were just as we imagined and I love them every day. Of course when I needed a special piece for a special kid, I came back to Will and Rosie and my vision came to life again in a little silver sabre necklace.
It was perfect and loved.

Eva J.

My partner and I worked with W.R. Metalarts to design a custom engagement ring.

I was nervous about designing a ring from scratch but the whole team made the process incredibly easy! I love that they ethically source their materials and the design came up with was killer. I can't stop staring at my unique ring!

Communication was easy and I thought they did incredible work! HIGHLY RECOMMEND if you want something unique and high quality!

Laura H.

Will at WR Metalarts worked with my partner and I to create a beautiful custom ring that we love!

You can tell they put so much care into every ring they make. They were easy to work with, communicative, and made the process fun!We would recommend WR Metalarts to anyone looking for beautiful, well made rings.

Sienna L.

Just received a wedding band for my fiance for our upcoming wedding.

So many good things to say about the ring AND this awesome company. The ring is gorgeous - just as pictured - thick, heavy, nice quality - not a single complaint there - and my fiance LOVES it - he can hardly wait to wear it :).The ring came SO fast - amazing communication, FAST response time, thoughtful, kind, and they stand behind their business and take care of their customers big time.OH and the ring came GORGEOUSLY packaged and wrapped and in such cool wooden box. Highly recommend them and working with this company for your big day. Good vibes all around.

If you're unsure about ordering online I would reassure you that you're making a great decision

Lauren Z.

We cannot say enough good things about our experience working with Will and Jessica at W.R. Metalarts this past spring.

We reached out to them for help designing custom wedding bands that would be eco-friendly, creative and reflect our relationship and values. Through a Zoom call, and dozens of emails, they helped us craft the perfect bands, with great attention to detail. They were extremely attentive and responsive to our preferences and feedback. Every step of the way, Jessica maintained warm, helpful communication with us, and Will took our ideas and transformed them into works of art. We especially appreciated how flexible and understanding they were of our situation and timing, as our original wedding plan was canceled due to the pandemic. We wholeheartedly recommend them. Thank you so much, Will and Jessica!

Caroline D.

W.R. Metalarts are my favourite metal crafters around.

They are incredible people and brilliant artists. Love love love.

Aurelie R.

Great experience!

I had a customized ring made for my fiancé’s wedding band.
They were Easy to work with and the ring came out exactly how we wanted.

Linda S.

I cannot say enough good things about the WR Metalarts crew.

They were so incredible to interact with, thoughtful, patient, and wonderful designers. Just the best non stressful experience!

Helena M.

I love that although it’s a simple band it has details that make it unique and perfect for us!

Also, the customer service is impeccable! Will def be ordering more.

Rebecca A.

We had to postpone our wedding due to covid-19 but wanted to hike up to a nice spot in the Rockies and get married on our original wedding day.

They were so amazing and answered all of my questions. I was really worried about getting my ring in on time for my future husband but it came in and the packaging was absolutely stunning! The ring is even better than I could have imagined and you could not ask for better people to work with.

Ruhika R.

We purchased this for my wedding band and couldn't be happier. WRMetalArts communicates quickly, clearly, and kindly, providing estimates and tracking information.

My band was fashioned and delivered well within the estimate provided! The texture looks gorgeous in different lighting, but it's also subtle enough not to be overly distracting. The ring is comfortable and fits as expected (we used one of their ring sizers). The presentation on delivery was also wonderful. All in all, would highly recommend working with this lovely team!

Kara F.

My fiance picked this ring out, and we bought the 4mm width for him.

The ring is beautifully made - he tried it on to make sure it fit right and did not want to take it off! Can't wait till he can wear it all the time :) Thank you!...I picked the 2mm version of this ring, and it is so beautiful! The width is delicate but the beautiful texture is still visible. It is such a beautifully made piece and I can't wait to wear it!!

Chloe G.

What an absolute pleasure to work with Will, Rosie, and Jessica!

They were very attentive to detail, both with communication and creation of my ring.
Will was able to create the exact ring I’ve been imagining for years! Great experience and amazingly beautiful result!!!

Pamm V.

My wedding band is so much more than I imagined it would be!

After debating between the mokume gane yellow gold band and a few other another designs (the birch band & woodgrain carved band), I decided to go with the mokume gane because it is so unique. I can tell how much attention to detail and love for the craft went into every aspect of its creation.Will and Jessica patiently answered all of my questions and made the process as smooth as possible, even in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic. The ring is a true piece of art!

Adam S.

My partner and I bought [the white gold hammered band] for one of our wedding bands and we absolutely love it.

The hammered finish is gorgeous and the white gold is so shiny it makes the pattern look like aspen leaves (to us at least). WRMetalArts were wonderful to work with and make high quality products. We would highly recommend their rings to anyone. We also custom designed a ring together and they made the process straightforward and fun. Will is great to work with and easy to communicate with. I wish I needed more rings because all their products are so wonderful!

Sienna L.

The band was perfect, and the owners were extremely responsive and helpful.

Nicholas D.

The band is absolutely exquisite.

Thanks so much for sharing your talent, and for such thorough, thoughtful service. :)

Macy O.

The design deposit was our first step to getting started with our design ideas.

Will took our ideas and put them to paper adding his own elements- allowing us to fine tune and narrow down our wonderful ring designs until we had the final draft! The whole process so far has been easy and it’s been great getting to know Will and more about the design process!

Avery C.

I just received this ring a few days ago and I cannot believe how stunning it is.

The pattern of the band is subtle and so interesting to look at.
I requested some modification and they were so accommodating and easy to work with.
The ring came 2 weeks earlier than expected in a very beautiful box.


Haleigh B.

There are still 10 days between now and my wedding, and I can't wait to wear it every day.

I tried it on when it came in the mail and it's just perfect. The width (2.5mm) is delicate but still wide enough to appreciate the hammered texture. The rings (my partner ordered a similar one) also came much more quickly than was quoted.
Thank you Rosie and Will!

Leah W.

Working with WR Metalarts was an amazing experience and I am so proud to tell anyone who will listen about how they too can create their dream ring/jewelry--sustainably and ethically!

The detail on the ring is just stunning. I am so incredibly happy and impressed with their work. I will definitely work with them in the future, and I'm already planning out how one of my grandmother's pendants can be reimagined into something I will wear on my wedding day. 12/10 would recommend!!

We had a fantastic experience buying a wedding band from WR Metal Arts.

The band is gorgeous and they provided exceptional customer service throughout the process, including working with us graciously on a last minute size change. They were super quick to ship the ring as well. I would definitely buy from them again and really value their focus on sustainability. I highly recommend them!

Megan S.

Bryan and I got engaged on January 16, 2019 and 3 months later I am still falling in love with my ring all over again every time that I look at it.

The detail work on the botanical design is impeccable. It's honestly one of the most beautiful things I've ever seen and without a doubt the most perfect, beautiful item I've ever owned. I am endlessly grateful to have the privilege of wearing an ring that is so perfect for me for the rest of my life. If jewelry was a baseball metaphor, for me, this ring is the grand slam hit in the bottom of the nineth that wins game 7 of the world series. I can thank Will and Rosie every day for the rest of my life and still feel as though I haven't thanked them enough. I love their shop. I love that my ring is ethically sourced. I love the intentionality with which they run their business. If you want someone who will go above and beyond to make sure that you have not only a custom, but a personalized design for the most important piece of jewelry you will ever purchase, I cannot recommend Will and Rosie enough.

Liz B.

My wife and I were planning our wedding Southeastern Vermont and we wanted everything to be as local as possible, even our rings.

We weren't sure that this would be possible, but then we found WR Metalarts!We were immediately drawn to their commitment to ethical and sustainable sourcing and the team were wonderful to work with. Both of our rings are absolutely gorgeous.
Mine is The Birch Band in rose gold and hers is The White Gold Hammered band. Thanks to Will, Jessica, and the rest of the team for making us such beautiful bands.

Owen S.

The whole WR Metalarts team is wonderful to work with.

We had two custom rings made and love the results. Will provided us with excellent preview renders of what he designed and the final rings came out even better than expected. Jessica kept the whole process moving and kept us in the loop of what was going on at each step of the process. If you want a custom designed ring they're the best :)

James S.

I purchased two Mokume Gane Notched branch bands for my wedding.

Jessica was incredibly helpful and prompt when replying to my questions! The rings are stunning, the most comfortable ring I have ever worn, and the package was gorgeous and thoughtful! The staff is very talented, inclusive, and I enjoyed working with them every step of the way. Worth the wait and every penny I spent!

Emma S.

Will, Rosie and Jessica were an absolute joy to work with.

They are incredibly kind and caring, and made the process of customizing our wedding bands and engagement ring so exciting and easy. My fiancé and I love our rings. They did an amazing job at capturing our love of the outdoors.

Thank you so so much for making this experience such a memorable one!

Alessandra L.

So great to work with this crew!

They were easy to talk to and worked overtime to get the ring to me on time, despite covid delays. Highly recommend!

Jennifer C.

Everyone at W.R. Metalarts was so caring and helpful.

They make amazing pieces and we are getting lots of compliments on the wedding ring they made. Phenomenal!

Alex G.

Loved working with W.R.Metalarts to make my husband's wedding band.

The design of the ring is gorgeous, unique, organic, rustic... everything we were looking for. The quality is superb, customer service by Jessica was fantastic and the price is reasonable. Will even delicately hand engraved the inside for us with two meaningful sets of numbers. We could not be happier with this purchase which will surely last our lifetime (and beyond) and we are so happy to have supported this small Vermont business.

Jenn W.

Our rings from W.R Metalarts came out so amazing!

Working with them through the custom design process was easy, fun, and unique. We had found W.R Metalarts when searching for ideas for non-traditional engagement rings and my fiance and I are so happy to have worked with them to create our one of a kind rings.

It was wonderful to work with you, and we're so very happy. Thank you for everything!

What an absolute pleasure to work with Will, Rosie, and Jessica!

They were very attentive to detail, both with communication and creation of my ring.

Thank you so much!

The rings you all made for us are astoundingly beautiful and we are so excited to have them! We just got married [and] had a small, family-only ceremony, and it was fantastic. We had a great time getting our rings made with the team! 

Mark M.

Brooke and I are officially engaged.

Thank you so much for turning my ideas into the perfect ring. She loves it. I just wanted you let you know that you guys were the best to work with, and you'll be hearing from us for wedding bands in the future.

Nicole S.

So incredibly pleased with the wedding bands we received from W.R. Metalarts!

Their commitment to ethical and sustainable sourcing is what drew my husband and I to them originally.
And their outstanding attention to detail and customer service is what sealed the deal.

Alex L.

...we received our rings and they are beautiful!

They are exactly what we were looking for and they fit perfectly! My fiancé and I love what your company stands for. So thank you for making our decision for rings easy and worry free. The seller to buyer communication was fantastic as well!

Micah S.

We just wanted to take a moment to say thank you and let you know we're officially engaged!

I absolutely love the ring! (And Eddie's, but he hasn't seen his yet) They're perfect for us!
The whole process of collaborating with you guys and designing these rings was outstanding and we loved every step.

Amanda M.

Just wanted to express a sincere THANK YOU for the incredible ring!

It came out so, so spectacular. Alex loves it and gets a ton of compliments on the simple but elegant beauty of it. Life and work have been so terribly busy, but I will absolutely be giving you guys some love on the internet.

Thank you thank you thank you!

David K.

Me and my new Fiancé, Al want to thank you so much for all the work you guys did to make this day possible.

The ring is absolutely gorgeous, she and I love it! The day was a wonderful success...
We are so thankful. I hope to stay in touch. You guys captured the essence of our natural spirit in that ring and we are so grateful.

Daniel T.

The whole team at W.R. Metal Arts was fantastic to work with.

They brought my custom design to life and the final product exceeded all of my expectations. They were highly communicative and forthcoming with the process, cost and expectations.

Would highly recommend them for any custom jewelry design needs.

Charlotte C.

They run rings around the competition!

Very positive experience. Will was super kind and thoughtful as he made time to talk my fiancée and I through all the design options. Jessica in the office was communicative the whole way with regards to the estimates/invoice and shipping.

They delivered as promised and my future bride loves her beautifully crafted ring.Highly recommend!

Jonathan B.

I wanted to take the time to thank you both for crafting what is sure to become a family heirloom in [our] household!

The ring you designed and crafted is exquisite, and the sentimental value it holds for not only being a ring of deep importance to my family but also to my roots in Vermont have left so many speechless when they hear the story.

I cannot thank you both enough for the gift you have given me! Thank you both so much!

Michael C.

Such a beautiful ring! It arrived discreetly and as expected.

Thank you for working so diligently to meet our special date requirement. Later that evening, while enjoying the sunset and walking along the water in Avila Beach; I asked and she said yes! What a wonderful moment. A year to the day since we first met.

Katie and I appreciate and admire you both and we are honored to have this ring as a symbol of our love and friendship. 

Mike D.

I learned of W.R. Metalarts from a friend who got his wedding ring made by them.

For her wedding ring, my wife wanted a ring with texture of some kind, and I wanted to get her something unique - I went with the white gold at 5mm. The ring that Rosie & Will made us was perfect! I think the "wood grain" looks like ripples in water, and it's just a beautiful piece. It was also delivered faster than expected, so that was nice too.

Keep up the beautiful work folks!

Shanti F.

We could not be more thrilled with the excellence in quality, personal touch, and professionalism.

We had two rings made with heirloom stones and everything was custom fit to us. It was wonderful working with Will for the design and seeing the updates from Vanessa as things progressed. We were involved every step of the way, thanks to the frequent updates and check-ins with Jessica. Can't recommend them enough.

THANK YOU W.R. METALARTS! Sending all of our love for a happy and prosperous 2021

Jae A.

We weren't sure that this would be possible, but then we found WR Metalarts! We were immediately drawn to their commitment to ethical and sustainable sourcing and the team were wonderful to work with. Both of our rings are absolutely gorgeous. Mine is The Birch Band in rose gold and hers is The White Gold Hammered band.

Thanks to Will, Jessica, and the rest of the team for making us such beautiful bands.

Owen S.

I worked with Will and Rosie to design a ring for my fiance.

They were both extremely responsive, detailed and professional throughout the process. I really appreciated that they took the time to find out about us, and used this information to provide suggestions for various aspects of the ring design. I especially loved that I was able to use my mom's ring and that they were willing and able to turn that into a beautiful new ring.

The ring turned out better than I ever could have imagined and my fiance loves it!

Eli M.

I wanted to let you know that Phil and I are officially engaged [...] 

Even though I’ve of course known this was coming, it still feels very surreal! And WOW am I just SO blown away by how stunning the ring is. I truly could not have imagined a more perfect design... it is crafted so beautifully and is so elegant and special. I cannot thank you enough for being such a wonderful part of this big step of ours, and for helping me make decisions about it!

This ring is even more meaningful knowing you both made it [...] So much love and gratitude! 

Kelsy S.

Success! I have proposed and Julia said yes! She loves the ring and the day was really special.

We went up to the Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore in Northern Michigan and I asked her on a beach on Lake Superior. The first thing she said when I opened the box was “Oh my gosh!!” which I think speaks for how gorgeous the ring is. She pointed out that Lake Superior is the size of Maine, so it’s only fitting the Rose of Maine made its debut there!...

Thank you again for such a beautiful ring. We cannot stop staring at it and reliving the day! 

Hayden M.

I wanted to let you know how much I love my ring!

It was a total surprise. Thank you so much for working with Joel on it. It is absolutely perfect. I haven't taken it off (which is probably not what you would recommend) but it fits so well into my daily activities that I don't even realize I have it on. That is exactly what I wanted out of an engagement ring. I don't have to worry about hurting it since everything is inset. It has such a wonderful vintage look too.I love looking at it from the side as much as the top! I could just go on and on about it.
The pink tourmalines! Oh my gosh!  I am so in love and can't thank you enough for your time and hard work making it!! 

Nellie A.

From the first e-mail correspondence to the day my fiancé's ring arrived, Will, Rosie and Jessica were so pleasant to work with and their talent shined through with the final product.

They worked graciously with me to customize one of their original designs. Will was so kind to video chat and make me feel comfortable as we began the process of finding the perfect ring. They worked hard on sketches to allow me to choose the custom design that fit best and they were always so available to communicate with, which is a credit to their whole staff.

I cannot recommend this amazing business enough and will forever be thankful for their contribution to a new chapter in our life.

Chris S.

Sarah knew they wanted their ring to be something special.

A ring of woven bands, both simple and complex, moving and strong much like Sarah, themself. Will Nevins-Alderfor made this half-articulated vision a true work of art. From his studio on the third floor of an old cotton-mill he wove beauty out of metal. When it came time for Scott’s ring, he wanted something that would have echo Sarah’s while being fully its own. This time it was Rosie Nevins-Alderfor who would gift us her talent to design something more than Scott hoped for. Scott’s ring was cast out of the metal of one of his grandfather’s wedding rings.

Every time we walked into Will and Rosie’s studio, they greeted us with the warmest of smiles and hugs. We are honored that they are part of our community and of this day.

Scotty K.

Your wedding event is just one day (or a little more if you go all out!), but your rings are a daily reminder of your commitment and care for one another.

My fiancee and I choose to do custom rings to bring more meaning to that daily reminder - our rings each have a piece of the tree we'll be saying our vows beneath. W.R. Metalarts was absolutely wonderful to work with - not only is their work gorgeous, the people are kind and courteous as well! When we were initially considering a custom ring we reached out to a few places, and W.R. was the only place we felt any personal connection to. They took the time to get to know us and our preferences right at the start, and touched base with us regularly through the planning and creation process.

If you've decided on doing a custom ring, you'll be happy you went with W.R. Metalarts!!!

Ece Y.

Will, Rosie, and Jessica were so wonder during the design process.

Not only were they responsive and communicative but such a joy to work with! They took important pieces from my life and designed a beautiful ring where I can continue use to carry them with me. The finished product is better than I imagined and so special because of how much of the original stones and materials he was able to incorporate. For the design process it was so special being involved in each of the steps.

I was so impressed at how well they listened to my ideas and turned them into reality, all while incorporating their expertise and style. I cants than them all enough and am so proud to wear this treasured ring. Thank you!

Halya H.

We could not be happier with the incredible rings and service we received from Will and his team over the last two years!

First my fiancé worked with Will to create the engagement ring of my dreams! He offered the perfect combination of master craftsmanship, gorgeous design, and ethically sourced materials. I could not be more in love with it! We knew we couldn’t go anywhere else for our custom bands. Will was able to bring the design to life, better than we could’ve dreamed! Our rings have a stunning textured finish, and mine includes a “mobius” twist—simple but striking! We are so grateful to have been able to work with Will and the team through this process, they were so professional and excited for us as they walked us through the entire design process, and our rings are simply perfect.

Stephanie M.

Now that I am still basking in the afterglow of being engaged but am less rushed in writing out my thoughts, I wanted to sincerely thank you for making this ring for me. [...]

I knew that Bryan was planning on proposing (I had given him permission since he was waiting for me to be ready), but for whatever reason, I was expecting a simple solitaire ring with no frills, nothing personalized [...] but at the end of the day the ring that I have is incomparable and infinitely better than what I was expecting. This entire experience solidifies that I have found the most wonderful person who knows me better than I know myself. This ring, from who made it to the beautiful detail work is so special, and I can't thank you enough for making it. The best way that I can describe this feeling is like when you go to the store with your best friend and they give you something to try on that you would never pick for yourself, but once you see it you know that it's better than anything you could have found on your own. I love the vintage, timeless detail work. You've taken what I thought I wanted and made it mine.Thank you for your part in what is and will truly be a most excellent adventure. 

Elizabeth B.

I want to take a moment and acknowledge how grateful I am to both of you for working with me (and Jay!) on this ring. [...]

I was blown away by [the] final set of designs - that's my ring! :)I can imagine you hear this often, but diving into the process of buying an engagement ring is exciting and scary. It can be challenging to narrow down preferences for something that seems so significant, let alone to be clear and honest about those preferences, but the two of you have made this process so open and flexible that I've felt comfortable and supported enough to check in, double back, change my mind...all of it.The space you've given me (and Jay!) to really sit with our preferences has allowed us to both be so confident about finalizing the design and moving forward with the construction process.We knew that there was something special about W.R. Metalarts before we reached out, and the way you have supported us through this process confirms our hunch. We are so grateful to have found you! 

Amanda W.

W.R. Metalarts did a beautiful job designing and delivering a replacement for my unique 14-karat gold wedding ring.

The original pair had the Greek key or eternity symbol running around it, with the design cut all the way through the metal. Will and Rosie were recommended to us, and we sent them pictures and specifications in March 2020 with the hopes that we would have the replacement ring by our 43rd anniversary in June. We received the new ring in May. In July 2019, I was out for an afternoon run and had parked my car, as always, on the street in a nice suburban neighborhood. It has always been my habit to remove my wedding ring before running to prevent losing it. Sometime during the 45-minutes that I was away, my car windows were smashed and two hidden backpacks were stolen. There were many things of value in those bags, and luckily my homeowners insurance covered the cost of replacing what was stolen. Even though it wasn’t the most expensive item stolen, my wedding ring was probably the most valuable to me. Before we got married in 1977, we found these gold rings in a shop window. We loved the design, and the price was within our limited budget. We’ve had lots of compliments over the years. We’ve never seen another set of rings like them. It’s great to have a ring back on my hand after a 10-month absence, and getting a replacement that so closely duplicates the original warms my heart.

If I could leave 100 stars, I WOULD.

Will and Jessica (I did not have the pleasure of working with Rosie) were phenomenal. Will's designs bring so many compliments even via a year's worth of remote teaching and Zoom meetings. Jessica is the best office manager I have every had the pleasure of working with and I miss emailing her. I felt truly like a friend and valued part of their WR Metalarts family throughout the process and I still do today. They are seriously quality humans who do quality work and who LISTEN to the customer, which is obviously so important when you are creating custom work. I will absolutely be purchasing from them again in the future. We had an engagement ring, matching band, and a separate band made and we adore them. So unique, such high quality and attention to detail, and they endlessly kept going to find the stone of my dreams. Our honeymoon was delayed and we were planning to go to Vermont...before we found WR Metalarts! Now, it's even more special to us that at least our rings came from Vermont and we will take our honeymoon sometime, returning our rings back to the place they were made and, hopefully, to thank Will and Jessica in person. We can't wait to make the trip and express our gratitude. A Google review will have to suffice for now! We love our rings. They are the shining star of our mid-COVID elopement. Speaking of, if you live out of state, don't hesitate to choose WR...we had a Zoom meeting to talk design and Jessica is responsive and detailed in her emails. I felt 100% comfortable the entire time. They also sent us a few snail mail samples, things to look at, etc. I can't say enough here. I know I'm forgetting a few things, but the main takeaway: This is quality jewelry from quality humans who care and want you to love what they are creating. It shows.

It is rare that I find a company I love so much that I return again and again, finding more to love every time.

I couldn't imagine a better experience than that of working with the WRM team. They listened to my ideas and then brought to life a truly spectacular ring that will be treasured for a lifetime! I can't wait for the next one!

Bernadette G.

The band is absolutely exquisite.

Thanks so much for sharing your talent, and for such thorough, thoughtful service. :)

Macy O.

I absolutely loved working with W.R. Metalarts.

They walked my through picking out and customizing the perfect engagement ring. They are friendly, helpful, and produced a beautiful ring!

We love our hammered wedding bands.

We messed up the sizing initially and there was only a week until the wedding. No problem, these guys had them resized and back to us with time to spare before the big day. Definitely looking forward to looking at this ring everyday!

My fiancé and I are so happy we found W.R. Metalarts!

Their beautiful mokume gane collection caught our eye while we were exploring jewelers, and we opted to design a custom engagement ring with them last year. The process was simple and fun from start to finish. We worked primarily with Will, and he was very receptive to our requests for adjustments and responded creatively to the thoughts we shared. We are very happy with the finished product, and are amazed that we were able to collaborate so deeply over email and video chat exclusively. This year, we decided to work with W.R. again to create our wedding bands. Will recommended a new design for my fiancé’s ring, a knife-edge band which turned out beautifully, and I went for a custom band to fit my engagement ring. Once again, I had a great time collaborating, this time primarily with Jessica, and I’m thrilled with the result. These are wonderful, talented people and I highly recommend working with them.

I cannot say enough good things about the entire team at W.R. Metalarts.

I had been looking for the perfect engagement ring for months from the big name stores and could not find it. After connecting with Will and the team here, I knew that I had found the right folks to help me design what ended up being the most perfect engagement ring. The entire process, from selecting a stone, to designing the look and feel was truly a fun process, even for someone like me who had no idea what I was doing and was intimidated by the entire process. They helped me every step of the way and made me feel confident in every decision we made together. Beyond the process, the final product is spectacular, and I could not be happier with the engagement ring. We will certainly be going back to them for wedding bands and perhaps future jewelry as well! Thank you again!

W.R. Metalarts was a fantastic choice for creating the perfect engagement ring for my fiancee.

Jessica and Will were excellent from the first time we met to discuss a custom design, and made the process completely seamless. I especially appreciated that they were able to work with me on a proposal timeline that aligned with a stressful travel schedule. Will created a wonderful custom ring that seamlessly incorporated heirloom stones and an excellent lab grown diamond that we are extremely happy with. We will certainly be back for future ring needs.

From the moment we set foot in the shop, we knew we were on to something special.

I heard about Will and Rosie from a mutual friend years ago and kept them in the back of my mind as the relationship with my partner grew. When it came time to design our wedding bands, we knew we had to talk to WR Metal Arts before we looked anywhere else. BOY are we glad we did!

Will’s warm demeanor made us feel right at home (observances of COVID protocols also helped!) and his creative skills came to the fore as soon as we described what we were imagining. I designed the engagement ring for my partner elsewhere, which was a fun and informative process, but it didn’t carry the same weight and connection we established with the entire WR Metalarts team. We talked about what we wanted, why we wanted it and what these decisions ultimately meant to each of us. We only went to the shop that first visit, but the communication throughout the process made us feel like we were visiting on a weekly basis!

From the materials, to the sourcing of the stones, the team responded to every inquiry in a warm and timely manner. I was rather picky about the turquoise I was looking for and the team continually responded to my feedback until I was looking at the perfect stones in my inbox. Even with a last minute adjustment to my ring size (slightly smaller than originally planned because my fingers swell in the summer) the team took my request in stride and made it happen.

My wife’s band matches her engagement ring PERFECTLY, no small feat considering the shape was something Will had “not seen a lot of”. It is delicate, elegant and exactly what she hoped for! I have had a vision for my band stewing in my head for several years, and truth be told I can be very particular. What Will and the WR team ended up producing has absolutely blown me away. I now have a piece I will cherish for the rest of my life and will pass down to my children for generations to come.

It was an honor and a pleasure to work with the WR team to create the wedding bands of our dreams. The process was fun, engaging and surprising effortless (on our parts, at least) considering how many hours went into the final product. We have the highest quality workmanship imaginable, with materials sourced ethically whose origins are transparent. We cannot recommend WR Metalarts enough and we will definitely be returning for future pieces. THANK YOU for the easiest and least stressful part of planning our wedding!!

Maggie and I started our search for wedding bands at the jewelry stores in Burlington, and found the experience frustrating and fruitless...

nothing spoke to us and it was difficult to gauge the true value of the pieces we were looking at.  Coming home from that experience, I found WR Metalarts on-line.  When I made an appointment to visit Will in Brattleboro, he warned me that he didn't have a "showroom", more of a workshop.  And that was the confirmation I needed that we were on the right track! Will was a pleasure to work with - personable, patient and informative - he quickly got what we were looking for, and helped  us to clarify our interests.  Jessica handled all of the follow-ups from that point through delivery of the rings - super-personal and professional, clear, thorough and frequent in her communications.  The rings arrived on-time, which was critical because we did not start the process with any time to spare.Most importantly, we both love our rings, and they are so much more meaningful having been made by a local artist who produced them custom for us. THANK-YOU, Will & Jessica!

Ken M.

Will and Jessica were fantastic to work with.

hey truly created the perfect ring that reflected my taste. The process of easy, fun, and engaging every step of the way. Thanks again!

Barbara J.

Will and the W.R Metalarts team did an incredible job creating the perfect engagement ring for my fiancé.

Will was able to source a beautiful tourmaline stone from Maine (where my fiancé and I met), and worked hard to accommodate our budget. The entire process was straightforward and fun. We can't wait to work with the W.R. team again for our wedding bands.

Lars H.

W.R. Metalarts made my custom engagement ring as well as our wedding bands.

They did an incredible job in designing a unique and ethically sourced engagement ring with input from my fiance - they were even willing to use heirloom diamonds from jewelry I inherited from my Gram. Everything from the communication, design process, the cost, the shipping, the fit, and quality exceeds all expectations. Run, don't walk to get your engagement/wedding/anniversary/just because jewelry here!

Mary K.

It wasn’t hard to fall in love with the many beautiful options that W.R. Metalarts offers for engagement rings.

My husband gave me my favorite option when he proposed, and from there we decided to custom design our bands.  It was such an awesome experience- both fun and exciting!  Will and his team listened to our ideas and turned them into something more beautiful and special than we could have imagined.  Adam and I are beyond thrilled with the rings that we get to wear every day and I encourage everyone to support this wonderful company!

Kate B.

The WR Metalarts team made the experience of designing our engagement rings so special and filled with joy!

Their level of care, communication, professionalism, and support throughout the process was ever-present. We're so grateful to have been able to work with these folks and now have our two beautiful and special rings! Thank you!

Anne LW.

Working with Will and his team to come up with the perfect engagement ring for my fiancé was an awesome experience.

From the initial zoom consult to the final delivery of the ring, W.R. Metalarts was professional, organized and passionate about the work they do. Will listened to my ideas and feedback to come with customized designs and ended up receiving exactly what I had envisioned. I’m so grateful to have found you guys, and couldn’t have asked for a better outcome.

Ruderis M.

W.R. Metalarts did a beautiful job on the engagement ring I gave to my fiancee.

They helped us find a set of lab grown diamonds to choose from that had the color and size we were looking for, they were super helpful and interested in getting us exactly what we were looking for, and they made a beautiful ring. We'll be using them for our wedding bands too!

Dan S.

I had the best experience with WR Metalarts. Their professionalism and craft is top notch.

The process of designing a custom engagement ring with all the little details I wanted was hassle free and fun. Take a look at their meticulously maintained website or Instagram to get an idea of what they can do. The breadth of designs they can produce is seemingly unmatched. The whole team really made me feel comfortable throughout the process of design, stone selection, etc. and they understood that it was my first time doing everything!

Owen P.

These guys are the absolute best.

Right from the start of the process all I felt was good vibes from them. They are an absolute joy to work with and they made dream come to reality so effortlessly. The craftmanship is top notch and I could not of asked for a better result, my project came out perfectly. If you want custom jewelry that is flawlessly executed while working with great, caring and kind people, this is the place to go, they will not disappoint.

Stacey G.

I couldn't be happier with my custom engagement ring by WR Metalarts and I highly recommend working with them!

I went in with very little idea of what I was looking for and they provided all of the direction and support needed to help me create the ring design of my dreams. It is so special and I have been loving showing it off to my friends and family. Thank you so much to the team at WR Metalarts. I am so so pleased.

Aimee C.

W.R. Metalarts did a wonderful job with my (now) husband's & my engagement rings (we did a joint proposal and now wear our engagement rings as wedding bands).

 They were easy to work with, made beautiful custom rings & it was so great to know that our rings are about as sustainable as new precious stone jewelry can be.
