It all starts with an idea! This initial chat is where we get to know each other, as well as develop a broad understanding of your ideas and inspiration. We offer expert advice with regards to metal, diamond and gemstone choices to ensure we get the best possible result. We then take away these ideas and put together a collection of design concepts for you to review.
Design proposal and gemstone viewing
When we come back together we will have collated a selection of diamonds or coloured gems for you to view along with the design proposals. Part of the beauty of going bespoke is being able to see and handle these beautiful gems before they’re set. Here we discuss the finer points of the design paying close attention to the functionality and wearability of the piece.
Throughout the natural progression of finalising a design, refinements are a common occurrence, but that’s OK! It's all part of us making sure that we get the design bang on before manufacturing begins. Any changes to your design and quote are clearly communicated to you before we get underway. We also present you with a highly detailed, hand painted render of your final design - a beautiful keepsake!
Production and delivery
Once you are happy with all aspects of the design and give us the go-ahead we provide transparent communication throughout the manufacturing process, including keeping you updated with progress and estimated finish times. We also work closely with our jewellers to ensure a high quality finish for every piece. Furthermore, we understand the personal nature of purchasing jewellery so we maintain the utmost professionalism and discretion at all times. We love to hand deliver our pieces so we endeavour to do this where possible.
