An entirely unique personal service on every ethical and crafting level.

Each Laibach ring is crafted to your exact fitting requirements and are extremely durable. Using fine-tuned skills and holistic principles, Kerstin designs and hones each individual ring with a purely natural, tactile approach ... entirely by hand.
She does not use jewellery design computer programmes and your rings are not made from cast.
Kerstin provides specific, individual attention and advice on the finer details regarding comfort, precious metal options and their long-term visual characteristics, surface structure and polishing ... and of course the ethics behind your piece.
Laibach rings offer an unprecedented ethical choice for vegans and handfasting ceremonies. (As well as standard inner ring engraving, hand engraving by Kerstin of Rune/Celtic lettering is also available on request)
Kerstin makes your rings with genuine ecological passion ... taking the greenest route possible throughout the whole process - and without compromise.
Craft-wise, you will receive updates during the making process, and if necessary photos of your ring(s) are provided during key stages of crafting so you have options for adjustments before the next stage. This is all part of a genuine goldsmith-to-couple personal service and a world away from high street or web jewellers providing factory or batch-made bands.*
If you are visiting Kerstin Laibach's Black Forest studio / gallery there is also an option for you to take part in the first melting, rolling and hammer strikes of the forging of your rings.

* You are welcome to get in touch if you have problem wedding bands. Kerstin Laibach can provide a solution ... turning a matrimonial ring disaster into a desirable ending .... or new beginning. Please also see Rejuventaion of Wedding Rings.

Specialized recycled options ... creating new rings from your old family gold.

Kerstin Laibach offers a wide choice of recycled precious metals including: yellow gold, white gold, rose gold, green gold, platinum, palladium, silver and highly specialized champagne gold.
Kerstin also offers an even more environmentally friendly (and sentimental) recycling choice by creating new rings from your old family gold (often inherited worn-out or broken jewellery) This is a rare Laibach goldsmithing specialty and highly popular with wedding clients. If your old family gold / jewellery is shown to be suitable for re-melting it can be used as the pure source material to design and create your new rings. Some aspects of your old jewellery may even be integrated into your rings and there are various ways this can be creatively realized. Alternatively, old family precious metals can of course simply be used as a recycling deposit towards your rings. All these recycling / design options can be discussed during consultation.

Choosing Laibach wedding and partnership rings should not be a rushed decision or an event planning afterthought.

Laibach ethical wedding rings and partnership rings can never be taken for granted, because whichever style you have chosen - classical, ethereal or contemporary - the Laibach principles by which they are made will always connect love, commitment and compassion ... a reassuring combination for a happy future.
Most importantly, when it comes to wedding plans, take your time when considering your rings ... Out of all the costs to take into consideration when preparing for your special day, your rings are essentially the most significant items that will truly become part of you. A wise couple will ensure that they do not compromise on the expenditure, quality and ethical preference of their bands. Partnership rings need to feel right and made solid ... A tactile, warming memory which reflects true-lasting physical and environmental harmony; a substantial reminder of what your celebration day will represent for years to come.
