The Design & Making Process

Each piece of our jewellery has a story behind it, the clue is in the name, what we love to do is to help you add to your life story by creating something with you that is about you and is unique jewellery to you.

It begins with an appointment and a conversation about you and your lifestyle – a face to face meeting, a telephone call or an email. We find out about you, the designs you like, the metals you prefer the shapes and colours of stones you like, what budget you’d like to spend and your timescale.

Your design can be based on one of ours that is personalised to your taste or it can be a design you have in mind or for example a unique engagement ring we create for you. We will produce hand drawings for you to see and when we are all clear about the design then a 20% deposit is put down. We will order in the gold and the diamonds, rubies or whatever materials are needed, where possible we like you to be involved in choosing your stones from a selection we show you. We are proud to be able to offer you Fairtrade gold and gemstones as an ethical choice and believe strongly in ensuring all our supply chains are ethically sourced companies.

Then the making begins!

Red gold contains an alloy of pure gold and copper
Yellow Gold
Our white gold contains an alloy of pure gold and high palladium,

All our jewellery is custom made in 18ct gold because we believe this is the best metal for jewellery.

Your bespoke jewellery starts life with us as pieces of gold grain in either red, yellow or white in colour.

These grains are melted down and made into ingots. Then they are rollered, heated, pummelled, formed, drilled, beaten, polished and textured until they are transformed into beautifully crafted jewellery.

When the piece is ready you will see it, have a final fitting and we make sure you are happy with it. We will make any adjustments before sending it to the Assay office to be hallmarked. The hallmark guarantees that you are receiving the quality and weight of gold that you are paying for.

From start to finish the process takes between 4 to 6 weeks depending on how busy the Assay office is.
