Get in touch
Contact me at email@example.com. If you have some initial inspiration, that's great, otherwise I'll ask a few questions to get an idea of what you're looking for.
You can let me know if you have a deadline or a budget to work to and we'll get the process started.
I'll create some initial sketches which we can iterate through consultation, either online or in person.
During this process, we'll talk about which gemstones and metals you'd like. I'll give you some quotes and we'll hone in on the final design.
Due to the handcrafted nature of my process, I use drawings to communicate ideas, but they shouldn't be considered renders of the finished product.
Gemstone and material selection
When the design is well underway, I will source a small collection of gemstones for you to choose from. Confirming the gem in person means you can take part in this all-important moment within the process - and it's a great opportunity to get a ring size too.
All the gems and metals I source are from reputable suppliers who conform to local and global standards of trading ethics. The metal I use is 100% recycled and if you value an extra level of traceability or sustainability from your gemstone - I will be able to guide you through this.
There is no minimum budget that I work to but the following will give you an idea of prices:
Engagement rings: £3,000
Wedding rings: £800
When creating a bespoke piece of jewellery longevity is a primary priority, but as with anything, these jewels require a certain level of care. Please read my care guide for further information.
Reusing Heirloom Gemstones:
Repurposing heirloom jewellry is not a risk-free endeavor. Dismantling something so well-loved can often reveal long-hidden damage. I always treat your relics with the utmost care and attention and fully respect the sentiment they hold. If I find any issues while working on your jewellery I will talk you through them and you can think about how you'd like to proceed.
Ring Size and Surprise?
Sadly there is no subtle way to get an accurate ring size. If you would like to keep your proposal a complete surprise there are creative ways to do this, such as proposing with a gemstone. To avoid extra costs and complications, it's recommended that you find out the ring size early in the process.
