Curtain rings come in two designs. There is the straightforward wrought iron ring and what’s known as the passing ring which has a gap in it to allow that section of the curtain to pass through the brackets.

Based on the overall length of the pole, the number of both types of rings you will need (1 for every 10cm) will be automatically calculated, we suggest half normal and half passing rings, but you may need to change this split depending on the arrangement of your curtains.

Complete the decor with a set of matching, hand-made curtain holdbacks from our complete range. Available with your choice of finial, or continue to browse Made by the Forge's complete range of wrought iron curtain poles.

Please note:

  • Passing brackets cannot be used with eyelet curtains
  • Most one bend bays will need three brackets in total, two standard (end) and one centre bracket. If in doubt please phone and ask. 
  • All bays are supplied in 2 pieces as we cannot ship them in one piece due to the size

Our Austrian curtain lady came to measure up today and was highly enthusiastic about your craftsmanship. "Almost a shame to hang the curtains on them, the rods look so good as they are!" was her comment – praise indeed!”
