Bespoke

A piece of jewellery should be personal and unique to you.  There is nothing more special than creating your very own piece of jewellery.

From designing and making engagement rings, to re-modelling family heirlooms, our jewellery experts will offer advice and inspiration to guide you through the whole process.

We recommend booking an appointment to see us at either store, with an idea or sketch of your design, or the piece of jewellery that you would like to re-model. We will draw up a rough sketch of how you would like your item to look using specifics such as choice of metal, stones, size, cut, colour etc. This drawing is then sent to our designers at the workshop for a CAD. 

A CAD is a computer animated design that allows our customer to see an image of what their item will look like once completed. If any alterations to the design are required, they will be made during this time. We can also request a resin mold of your item so that you can see and feel it in person before deciding to proceed. There is an additional cost for this service. Once you are 100% happy with the design we will give the workshop the go ahead and then your item will be created. 

Shown below is the step-by-step process of a customer's bespoke design.

Customer's Sketch

Our customer came in to our store with a rough idea of what they wanted. We helped them choose what size stones would be best for the design and their budget.

Computer Animated Design (CAD)

The design was then sent to our workshop where they created the CAD. This allowed the customer to see the rings in 3D and point out any alterations.

Resin Mold

The resin mold allowed our customer to try on the rings and give the final go ahead before their rings were put into production.

Bespoke Made Rings

The rings were then made to the customer's specifications using the stones and the metals they selected.

Remodelling

We also offer customers the chance to remodel jewellery. We love it when our customers give us the opportunity to breathe new life into an existing piece. We can remodel family heirlooms using the existing stones and metal and transform it into something completely new and unique to you. We understand that each customer has their own style and taste when it comes to jewellery and they may not wear something that they own for this reason. We want people to be able to wear their jewellery with confidence. 

Similarly to bespoke pieces, we recommend that a customer comes in with an idea of what it is that they want, however if this isn't the case we are more than happy to discuss what options there are with the jewellery that is brought in for remodelling. We may even show you some designs that you may never have considered before. It may take a few designs to figure out exactly what it is that you want but together we can come up with something unique to you.

The process is very similar to a bespoke piece once the design has been finalised and we will keep you informed each step of the way.

The Original Ring

This classic yellow gold claw set solitaire engagement ring had been worn for 35 years and over time the claws and shank had become worn. This customer came to us for suggestions on how to remodel their engagement ring using their existing stone.

The New Ring

The central stone from the original ring has been taken and added to this beautiful halo setting with diamond shoulders. With it's platinum head and yellow gold shank, it is a gorgeous modern take on the original engagement ring.

Side by Side

Looking at the two rings side by side, you can see the difference between the two. This new modern design elevates the ring and the central stone to new heights. 

 

Bespoke Designs and Remodelling can range in price but all designs can be accommodated to fit all budgets.
