Whether memories bloom or fade we exist now, committed to the present moment, in love with life and living it to the fullest. The "Life Band" represents this and so much more — a promise to ourselves, and a reminder to make the most of here and now. If you have any questions or would like a custom designed life band, please contact us at info@RhodesWeddingCo.com

The lovely Philippa Stanton inspired us to make the concept of the "Life Band" a reality. We've been moved by her stunning work for ages, and we are so honored to create such a special piece for her.

The story behind a girl and her life band

Since I got divorced I’ve never worn another ring but what leapt to my mind when I saw your website was that if I were to wear a ring again it should sort of be a life band, i.e.; like a wedding band, but somehow representing a promise to myself; to be married to life itself, and all the joys and problems it brings with it.

A ring is a living, moving thing; it would live with me and not just on me, and I will have to cherish it and look after it, like life.

This ring represents not being ‘married to myself’, but being ‘engaged’ with life and ‘married’ to gracefully accepting my existence within in it…”
— Philippa Stanton
I cannot begin to tell you how much I absolutely adore what you have created...

I don’t think even I had realised what it was going to mean to me; the lines, the marks…everything on that ring I recognise as part of me and my journey as well as my security; those scratches on the table have been made by either me or my son over the years; making things, scoring things, accidents... and there they are on my ‘life band’.

As I’ve said before I don’t wear rings, but as soon as I saw this ring I absolutely knew I wanted to wear it forever ( something I really wasn’t expecting )…you have seen a part of my life and crafted it into the most beautiful thing ever and I can’t thank you enough.

The life band is for those single, divorced or married, as it marks your personal and independent presence in the world and is a reminder that not being perfect is part of being human and part of our journey…accidents and scars make up the whole and it’s important to acknowledge rather than forget them.
