The Bespoke Process
We understand that selecting the right engagement ring can feel like a daunting task; it will likely be one of the most important jewellery investments you’ll ever make. Fortunately, our bespoke design service is here to help you every step of the way so that creating your dream engagement ring is a fun and exciting experience. We strongly believe that our customers should be closely involved in the design of their jewellery, so that the finished piece reflects their personality and style.
Every aspect of our bespoke service is carried out in house to ensure that each piece we make receives the individual care and attention it deserves.
Your bespoke engagement ring experience begins with a complimentary consultation in our William Street showroom. One of our highly experienced jewellers will sit down with you to discuss your ideas, inspiration and budget, so we can begin bringing your ideas to life. If you are unsure of budget, we will advise on the cost of engagement rings you like to aid your decision making.
2. Design Development
The information gathered during your consultation is used to begin working on your designs. We develop ideas from paper sketches to computer design so you can begin to visualise your ideas. This stage of our bespoke service is free of charge and you can expect your design ideas to arrive with you via email within 1-2 weeks of your initial consultation.
3. 3D Printing
Once you are happy with your chosen design you will be invited back into the showroom to view a 3D wax replica of your engagement ring. This is a fantastic opportunity for you see how your finished piece of jewellery will look from every angle and can also be tried on.
4. Selecting your Diamond
The beauty of the 3D wax model is that it can be set with diamonds. Based on your design requirements and budget we will source a selection of diamonds for you to view. These will be placed into your wax model so that you can select which stones you like best. We will talk you through the details of each one, helping you make an informed decision on which stones will be set in your finished engagement ring. Only at this stage, when your ring is ready to go into production, will we ask to process a deposit.
All bespoke jewellery is designed and handmade in house from start to finish. We also cast our own metal to ensure accuracy, precision and attention to detail. Having forged strong relationships with both UK and international suppliers, we are proud to be able to provide Fairtrade gold and ethically sourced stones on request. We firmly believe that bespoke jewellery should be crafted to look beautiful and last a lifetime.
6. The Finished Piece
Once your jewellery is finished, thoroughly checked and beautifully packaged, you will be invited back to the showroom to collect it and the remaining balance will be processed. Secure shipping is also available if required. We want your jewellery to remain in excellent condition for a lifetime and encourage you to come back to see us once a year for a complimentary check, clean and polish.
