Bespoke Jewellery; all you need to know

There is nothing more exciting than meeting a new client and working with them to create a unique piece of jewellery they will treasure forever. We love to see our designs come to life, documenting the journey along the way to the final finished piece.

How and where to start? 

We recommend taking a look around, all jewellery designers have a different aesthetic, so it’s important to choose a designer whose designs and ethos you like. We advise looking into and asking how your chosen jeweller works, who is making your jewellery and importantly where the materials are coming from.

‘We pride ourselves on contemporary, timeless designs that are consciously hand crafted with responsibly sourced materials.’

You may have an idea already, or are you in need of a special engagement ring? Have you inherited jewellery, bought an antique or have fallen out of love with something you already have. This can be an exciting way to breathe a new lease of life into something that already has a rich sentimental history. 

Our bespoke service isn’t exclusive to brand new designs. We love to thoughtfully recycle sentimental pieces utilising the stones and metal into something more suited to you ensuring that nothing is wasted.

What happens in a bespoke consultation?

A personal consultation is a great way to meet and talk through what you want, your budget and how we can make the most beautiful piece of jewellery for you!

We always recommend a good starting point is to have a look and gather images of styles you like, along with any inspiration, this allows us to quickly see your initial thoughts. We can use as a starting point to develop, Platforms like Pinterest can be great for this. However, If you would rather let your jeweller incorporate their style, working from a blank canvas can create some beautiful, individual and unexpected designs.

Let’s talk budget. Our designs may cost more than you will find on the high street, but that’s because the are individually designed especially for you. We take time thoughtfully designing and making each ring using the most ethically sourced materials available. As a guide, bespoke engagement rings start from £1000 with up-cycled designs priced individually.

Our approach is tailored to you, we will spend some time getting to know you, your style, when you’ll be wearing the jewellery and anything else we feel will be useful when it comes to designing the piece; ensuring that it is perfectly to your taste.

Personal Touch

Designing bespoke commissions is such a personal process. When we work alongside our clients, we love getting to know them, the stories behind the jewellery and the sentiments that they carry. 

From the initial consultation we will provide various draft designs for you, giving you different options on styles to suit your budget. Finalising and refining your design until you are happy to go ahead. 

Once the design is approved  we will confirm your order details and request a 50% deposit. 

Hand crafting your design

On to the making we go! 

We work closely with incredibly skilled craftsmen here in the U.K. so whether your design is made completely from scratch in house or has utilised processes like lost wax casting, stone setting, CAD (3D drawing your design up on a computer and then 3D printing your designs in wax), laser or hand engraving. You can be assured that we will use the most suitable technique for your design, enabling us to achieve the best results to an outstanding quality.

With an estimated completion date of around 6-8 weeks, we are happy for you to collect or can post directly to you fully insured.
