About Richard

Welcome to Gretna Green Wedding Rings, I am Richard Harris a jewellery designer working from my studio workshops close to the Scottish border.

My love for jewellery started from a young age in my local family business, polishing charm bracelets from age 13, yes I don’t think it would be allowed these days. My dad was a silver hand engraver and I guess something rubbed off on me. I went to Sheffield City Polytechnic and graduated in 1988 with a BA (Hons) in Silversmithing and Jewellery and then went on to gain an FGA gemstone diploma. I was an early adopter of the internet and was selling Gretna Green wedding rings online in 1998. 

Today I specialise in wedding bands, engagement rings and unique jewellery inspired by the lakes, fells and coastline that is so close by. My work is made from gold, platinum, silver and precious gemstones.

I am very lucky to have a career I enjoy and though the years it has kept me sane after clearing all the mess that my two teenage children have made. They are grown up now but as my wife says, you wouldn’t know it sometimes.
