Bespoke & Commissioned Work
Commissions and bespoke work are a huge part of our business, our clients come to us, sometimes with a very specific design in mind and in other cases they may want a particular gemstone, or a ring in a particular metal or they may simply want to mark an occasion with a memorable piece of jewellery.
Below are some examples of commission that we have completed recently.
Our client, Kate, came to us with a request for a yellow diamond engagement ring, she had seen some in the past and wanted her ring to be unique and memorable. Having discussed design and budget with Kate we got to work finding the perfect diamond for this job. We managed to source a GIA certified Fancy Intense Yellow Cut Corner Brilliant and here's the finished product to the left and Kate's comments below
"Just wanted to say a big thank you to you and Barry!
I absolutely LOVE the ring, its exactly as I pictured it and it was SO worth waiting for! I just love it, can’t stop looking at it, and everyone is mad about it!
It’s perfect! I'm so glad I found you guys." Kate O'Reilly
In this case our client, Gerald wanted a brooch for his wife, apparently she had always wanted a rose brooch made entirely in yellow gold.
In order to get the detail right on this rose we first carved it entirely in wax and then cast it in yellow gold, it is set with a 40 point white diamond in the centre.
"Thank you so much for your efforts on this brooch, it is everything that my wife had hoped for" Gerald
Our client Caroline P. came to us with a parcel of lemon quartz that she had received as a gift and wanted to have a statement necklace made for herself: Here are her comments
"I asked Barry and Addrianna to set some stones I had. From design all the way through to finishing the personal service was excellent. I have a unique, top quality necklace with which I am delighted. The craftsmanship is first class: I was kept informed all the way. It has turned out better than I envisioned. THANK YOU !"
We were commissioned over the summer to create a "Lego" partnership ring. Our client and his partner are lifelong Lego fans and had recently merged their collection: not an insignifiant milestone. The ring was first carved in wax then cast in white gold.
