If you see a design in the collection that you love as it is listed, simply order it online and it shall be handcrafted in 8-10 weeks. Alternatively, if you would like to change the gemstone or it’s shape or size, or the metal the piece will be made in, please get in contact and we can discuss how it can be changed to suit you.
With each customisation you'll receive an image of how your finished piece of jewellery will look and a bespoke quote before we proceed.
Please allow a minimum of 10 weeks for your Made-to-Order piece of jewellery.
STEP 1 - CHOOSING YOUR FAVOURITE DESIGN
If you see a design in the collection that you love as it is, simply order and pay for it online and it shall be made within 10 weeks. Or, if you would like to make a few tweaks to a design, contact me and we can have a consultation in person or over a phone/video call about your desired customisations.
STEP 2 - GEMSTONE SOURCING, DRAWINGS & DEPOSIT
If you would like to see alternative options for the gemstones, you will be able to choose what you like from a selection sourced from my trusted merchants based in Hatton Garden and the Birmingham jewellery quarter. Either view them in person in Kent or London, or I can send lots of videos and pictures via email. I’ll explain the different qualities of diamonds and gemstones so you understand what’s perfect for your budget. You may already know about the 4 Cs: cut, colour, carat and clarity but if not I'll take you through all you need to know and you can read through my diamond guide.
If you would like to make changes to the design, you will receive CAD renders of the design to approve beforehand. You will also receive a bespoke quote for your jewellery with each design, metal and gemstone customisation. Once you have decided, I will ask for a 50% deposit to be paid via a BACS transfer, the remaining balance is to be paid upon completion.
STEP 3 - MAKING THE PIECE
The multiple components that make up your piece of jewellery are cast in your chosen precious metal. I then craft these miniature pieces of metal together using age-old hand skills.
STEP 4 - SETTING
Your piece of jewellery is set with its glittering gemstones into the metal framework.
STEP 5 - POLISHING
The piece is polished with various grades of polish that go from coarse to fine, polishing out scratches on the surface of the metal, making the piece become gradually shinier and shinier.
STEP 6 - CLEANING & HALLMARKING
The final step! After polishing, your ring is cleaned to remove the polish. It is then sent to The Goldsmiths’ Company Assay Office in London for a hallmark. It’s now ready for you and your loved ones to treasure forever!
