designed with you, for you

My bespoke service offers you the chance to own something truly individual; a piece of jewellery that has been designed and created just for you.

 

Whether it is simply a different colour of diamond that you would like in one of our engagement rings or to commission an eternity ring that uses the gold from piece of family jewellery, I offer expert, friendly advice, so that it's an enjoyable experience for all!

This page shows a snapshot of commissions that I've created for clients in recent years. Many of the pieces have been to celebrate significant occasions and I really take delight in hearing all about the story behind each and every piece.

I am passionate about originality in design, therefore only consider commissions that reflect the existing style of my work.  I am happy to create pieces that are not derivative of other's designs/styles of jewellery.

If you'd like to chat, please drop me a line and make an appointment to visit our studio and workshop in the heart of Birmingham's Jewellery Quarter.  

 

Equally, I can work with you via Zoom, telephone or email if you prefer if distance/time is an issue.

 

Please read on to find out how the commissioning process works and to see some guide prices.

How does the commissioning process work?

An initial consultation and discussion of design ideas is free of charge and without any obligation. This is when we can talk about different possibilities, your ideas you have and the budget you may be working to.

 

Once a final design has been agreed upon, a deposit of 50% will be asked for to secure your commission. I will then also confirm a timescale for the completion of your piece, as this can vary, depending upon the processes involved. An average time is 6-8 weeks.

Payment of the balance will be made upon on completion of your item, and you can choose to collect your jewellery from us or receive it securely, by post.

Using your own jewellery

 

I can also use metal and gemstones from your own, existing jewellery that you may wish to give a new lease of life to! This will depend upon suitability for the design, so please get in touch with details and images of your jewellery to help me understand what may be possible. You can read more about our remodelling service here.

 

Guide Prices

Shown below are a selection of items, alongside approximate guide prices for different combinations of metal and gemstones possible within each design. Our gemstones are sourced individually for each commission, which can of course vary in price, dependent upon colour, cut and size.

 Please note that these are guide prices.

I understand that what you have in mind may vary from pieces is shown here, but I hope this will be a helpful guide for you.
