01/ WHAT IS THE PROCESS FOR CREATING BESPOKE JEWELLERY?

Having any item made just for you is a special experience and you should be involved each step of the way. After the initial contact, we will meet with you or liaise via email, or phone to discuss your initial ideas. This includes the type of metal you like, any stones you wish to have, ring or other sizes such as necklace length and the budget you would like us to work to. We’ll also answer any questions you have about the gems you’d like, the metal we use, or other elements of the process.
Once we have a good understanding of what you have in mind, we’ll work to create drawings and other visuals, or in some cases we create a mock-up of the design in silver. At this point we’ll make an appointment with you to see the designs we have developed and give you the opportunity to make any changes so it is exactly as imagined.
After your approval, we’ll get to work creating a prototype with a 3D printer. This is so you can try it on and make sure it feels and looks as good on as it looked in the earlier design stages. If any changes are needed we can adjust the prototype to be sure the end piece is one you will love at first sight.
When you’re happy we’ll begin crafting the jewellery by hand at our studio in Kingston upon Thames. Our craftspeople work to the highest standards and will ensure that no detail is forgotten in the final piece. Once your jewellery is finished, we’ll make an appointment for the final fitting and request payment on collection of your unique item.

02/ HOW MUCH DOES BESPOKE JEWELLERY COST?

As each bespoke item is unique it is difficult to give a blanket answer in terms of cost for this service and the end product. The price of bespoke pieces is reliant upon a number of factors – whether or not you are supplying the gems, the type of metal used and the intricacy of the final design. As the creation of bespoke jewellery is a close collaboration with our client, budget will be discussed as we progress through the creation process.

03/ WHAT KIND OF JEWELLERY ITEMS CAN BE BESPOKE?

Almost any item of jewellery can be bespoke. Engagement and heirloom pieces are most common, but we also create bespoke bracelets, necklaces, pendants, dress rings, earrings, and tiaras. Bespoke items often include gems, but this is not a prerequisite and we are happy to discuss jewellery items that are not intended to have diamonds or other precious stones included.

05/ CAN BESPOKE JEWELLERY BE MADE TO MY BUDGET?

As you are integral to the entire design and creation process for bespoke jewellery, we ensure your budget is taken into consideration along with your personal style, preferred tastes in stones and metals and purpose of the piece. We believe bespoke jewellery should meet your requirements for both style and budget.

06/ HOW DO I CHOOSE THE RIGHT JEWELLER FOR MY BESPOKE DESIGN?

In any creative relationship, trust is of the highest importance. If you are considering having a bespoke piece made, ensure that you have confidence in the jeweller you have chosen, that they are able to walk you the process and clearly explain any elements you may have questions about. A good jeweller should also listen carefully and help you narrow down your choices to help create a design you will adore for the rest of your life.
