Gold Rush

As a charity we are very fortunate that generous wedding and hospitality professionals and gifted members of the public donate their products, skills and services to make our weddings possible. However, there are a few items that we are often unable to receive via donation. Wedding rings are unfortunately one of these items, yet they are such an important part of every wedding and a lasting memory of a beautiful day shared together.

From the 17th to the 24th of February we are holding a collection week for our UK based supporters to collect and donate unwanted, broken and damaged gold, silver or platinum. Rings, necklaces, earrings, bracelets and brooches are all accepted and can still be used even if they contain diamonds or precious stones. 


We are collecting jewellery to enable us to have the metal melted down and crafted into brand new wedding rings for our special couples. 

During our Goldrush, you could send your jewellery as an individual or take on the role of ‘Gold Ambassador’ and hold collections at your place of work, local pub or social groups etc.   

Do you have unwanted or broken jewellery that is sitting about at home? Why not donate it to our Goldrush and give your jewellery a precious second life as wedding rings for our couples, where they will be forever treasured.  

If you would like to get involved with our Goldrush, please email our fundraising coordinator at fundraising@giftofawedding.org

Please see below a video demonstrating how a wedding ring is made from scrap gold.
