FAQ

Can I re-use my grandmother’s wedding ring in my wedding ring design?

Yes, I can easily incorporate and recycle heirloom jewellery that has sentimental value for you into your contemporary ring design

How long will it take to create my ring?

I can usually complete your wedding or engagement rings in around 4 weeks from our first appointment

Do you design and make the jewellery?

You will be dealing with me personally from first contact, through the design process and finally when you collect your finished pieces. I personally design and handcarve every ring commission and work with excellent diamond setters and hand-engravers in Hatton Garden where required

Is it more expensive to have a ring designed and handmade than to buy one ready made on the high street?

Shops typically have large overheads to consider which will be reflected in their prices. I am able to offer brilliant value for money as I don’t have those overheads so in terms of precious materials you will usually get more and higher quality for your budget than buying on the high street

Will you keep me updated throughout?

I will always keep you in the loop and from the offset give you an anticipated date your commission will be ready to collect from the studio. You will receive emails to update you as your commission progresses

Can you design a surprise engagement ring for my partner?

Yes of course. I have made many surprise commissions in the past. Please check out the Engagement Rings page where you will find all the information you need to start your ring commission

Can you make matching wedding and non-matching rings?

Yes. I’ve found many clients prefer just the metals in their rings to match and choose entirely different ring styles to suit their personality. I can of course make matching wedding rings too

Will my ring be hallmarked?

Yes all the precious metals used in my rings designs are appropriately hallmarked by the London Assay Office

Can you source diamonds and precious stones for my design?

Yes, I use trusted and reputable precious stone suppliers in Hatton Garden who can provide many types of diamonds and precious stones such as rubies, emeralds and sapphires to suit your budget and design

Do you design and make other types of jewellery?

Yes, I can create most jewellery items including earrings, bracelets and necklaces, especially recycling existing stones or precious metals you may already have
