Stories in silver.
Inspired by a fascination with ancient mythology and legends, Urban Sterling was created for the purpose of telling stories though the medium of precious metals. Pieces are divided up into chapters, each chapter is a unified entity, working with a common theme. An unhurried and discerning design ethos ensures that each piece is an clear expression of an artistic vision that will last for centuries to come. Whenever I begin work on a new piece, I consider both the form and the function. The form must represent the story or myth being conveyed, but without compromising the wearability or durability of the piece in question. This is where the unique challenge of story-telling in metal lies, a precise blend of art, engineering and narrative: to take a story, and turn it into a wearable expression of the owner.
Founded in October 2020 in the city of Newcastle, Urban Sterling is a modern company with modern values. Ethical practices are at the forefront of all business decisions, including establishing partnerships only with suppliers with certified 100% recycled and slavery free supply chains. Labor is never outsourced overseas, and all domestic shipping is carbon neutral.
I put a lot of effort into ensuring that as well as the pieces themselves, 100% of packing and postage materials are biodegradable. All of my packaging is made of cardboard or paper and is FSC approved, signifying responsible forestry.
Urban Sterling rings are produced using the lost wax casting method. This method has been in use for over 6,000 years, and has a rich and vibrant history. It is truly a personal method of creating jewellery. Every piece is produced individually in my casting house in Sydney, and finished in my Newcastle studio by hand. This process allows an authenticity you just can’t get from a mass produced piece manufactured in a factory somewhere in China. Lost wax casting can be traced back to the Indus Valley civilization in 4000BC. It’s first ever recorded use was the creation of a brass amulet, but it’s since been adapted for use with a wide variety of metals. I chose this technique to make my rings because of its tight tolerances and excellent, smooth finish, as well as to pay homage to the time honoured history of jewellery making.

Couldn’t imagine a better experience.
I got coordinating engagement rings commissioned for my now fiancé and I and they were so incredibly stunning. Mason was amazing throughout the process and very responsive to my questions. Couldn’t imagine a better experience and product. If you are thinking of buying or commissioning a jewellery piece from urban sterling DO IT!
Urban Sterling delivered!
Commissioned 4 (two gold, two silver) rings with an intricate family crest design, Urban Sterling delivered! Great attention to detail from Mason (even down to the packaging), and being a perfectionist myself, that’s something I can really appreciate. Stoked that he was more than happy to correspond plenty and didn’t get scared off by my indecisiveness along the way, in regards to the final product. Only problem now, is deciding which set to wear each day…
Best customer service I have ever received
Quite possibly the best customer service I have ever received! Accompanied with the incredible quality of the jewellery (and quality of packaging too) I was just so impressed! Willl definitely be buying from urban sterling again soon
Stunning Work and Presentation

I am Beyond Pleased with the Results
Got a ring commissioned for my 18th birthday and I am beyond pleased with the results. Mason was patient and always communicated throughout the whole process to ensure I had a product I was happy with. I would recommend Urban Sterling to anyone looking for a high quality custom ring.
Highly Recommend Supporting this Business
The rings are amazing, the designs are exactly like the photos shown and the customer service is phenomenal, very friendly. Highly recommend supporting this business if you’re looking for pieces that will last and look great!
The Smallest of Details were Executed to Perfection
I recently commissioned a ring as a gift through Urban Sterling and was absolutely blown away by the end result. Mason always communicates and updates you on the progress of your item to an above-par level. Always responsive at any hour to any question I had, and will help bring any idea you have to life. I cannot recommend Urban Sterling enough. The quality of the ring and craftsmanship is absolutely on point to the highest of levels. The smallest of details were executed to perfection and the postage was fast and efficient. I will 1000% be a return customer for my next ring. Let the sterling magician sort out all your needs.
Great Craftsmanship and Great Service
Great craftsmanship and great service, highly recommend getting your sterling rings made from the crew at urban sterling.
Amazing craftsmanship, superb quality that will last! After ordering my first chain I couldn’t help but go for a second purchase! Amazing artist that constantly over-delivers products with quality and style. 10/10 would recommend purchasing for a quality product with quality customer service!
5 Stars is an Understatement.
I received an absolutely perfect birthday present from Urban Sterling. Everything about it was perfect, from the jewellery itself to the gorgeous packaging. Great customer service, ethically sourced material, perfect. 5 stars is an understatement.
The chain I got was awesome quality, shipping was fast, great customer service. Would highly recommend, will be buying again!
I hope 2021 is a bumper year for you.
The rings are great and arrived on time. Thank you so much. The recipient loved them and all the personal touches including the note, etc. He loved the Koi tote too! Thank you so much and I hope 2021 is a bumper year for you. Great business and amazing personalization. Love it.
I received my sunrise signet, and I absolutely adore it. It’s the nicest ring I own, and am absolutely in love with it. The detail and the precision with it is stunning, and the amount of comments and and compliments I have received on it has been numerous, yet not surprising. Thank you so much for such a nice ring, and for the quick delivery!
Koi fish ring
This ring is beautifully made, so glad to have such a young and skilled craftsman in the area. 🙂
The design is exactly how i wanted it.
The crown and the MJ lettering looks so good and so does the text on the back. Sizing is also perfect. Fits so well- doesn’t move when i move my hand, it’s comfortable and the silver and the oxidization looks really good. I love it !
Beyond expectations & incredible service
I had a custom ring made for my partner and was so happy with the finished product! Mason went above and beyond – have recommended Urban Sterling to all my mates <3
My Urban Sterling ring arrived in perfect condition, was shiny, polished, smooth and of great quality! I love the way it looks on and I have had it for weeks now and it still looks brand new! Would be flattering on anyone, and any style. You can dress them up or down, giving them an industrial look or a whimsical feel. Thank you Urban Sterling!
