The design process

Get in Touch

If you have never commissioned a piece of jewellery before, it can be a daunting prospect, but we have been creating bespoke jewellery for a long time and will guide you gently through the design process.

Unlike most jewellers we don’t have sales staff, so you deal direct with one of the skilled goldsmiths from our workshop. Every client is different, as is every commission, so the process can vary, but generally it goes something like this:-

Call us


You give us a call for a brief chat about your requirements. You might like to e-mail us photographs or sketches so we can see what you have in mind. To move to the next stage, book a consultation.



We meet to discuss your ideas in full detail, asking questions to get as much information from you as possible, so we truly understand what you are trying to achieve.

Sourcing Stones


If your project involves us supplying diamonds or other stones we show you some from stock or source a selection from our suppliers that fit your brief and budget.



Based on the brief, we then provide you with a no -obligation quotation, which is based on the price of metal on the day. This figure could change due to fluctuations in the metal price.



When you place an order we require a deposit of 25% of the total, which fixes the price because this is when we purchase the metal. We also agree a date for the completion of your item.



We go ahead and create your piece of jewellery in our on-site workshop. Some customers request to see their piece before completion, or we can let you know when it is ready.
