Have you thought about commissioning a custom-made piece of jewellery for yourself or for someone special?
Would you love to have a bespoke engagement or wedding ring?
Commissioning made to order bespoke jewellery gives you the opportunity to own something unique, personal and just for you.
Bespoke design is a shared process.
We will work closely with you to create that special piece of jewellery.
We start by discussing your ideas and your vision of what you want to wear.
We will want to know how often you want to wear your jewellery and what you do and your hobbies. This is incredibly important. It will enable us to advise you on the suitability of the metal and gemstone and design that you want and enable us to suggest alternatives if necessary. We want you and your bespoke piece of jewellery to have a long life together.
We will then spend time creating an initial design. We use computer aided design (CAD) and 3D printing to enhance our traditional design process and your experience.
You will be able to see what your piece will actually look like once made and you will be able to try on a 3D printed model for fit and style. We can even fit the gemstones into the model.
The process is very inter-active and flexible and you will be able to review the design as we go along.

We believe that you should look at every piece on its merit and that quality is not just about the age of the piece or the name of the designer/manufacturer. We also believe that collecting is about buying what you like and having the confidence to go with your instinct and mix styles and periods. Most importantly it is about having fun and enjoying your purchases.
If you have anything that you would like to sell and you think that it might be of interest to us then please contact us. A picture of the item and as full a description as possible would help us enormously. If you are also looking for something in particular, then we would love to help.
