Bespoke Frequently Asked Questions
How does the process work?
Please make an appointment and fill in the online form. An initial consultation will be followed by designs and a quote. Often we will have a second meeting to confirm the style and stones. A 50% deposit is required to commence work on your piece with the balance due on delivery. Please don't worry if you are a bit unsure at the first meeting - this is absolutely to be expected and we will talk through your ideas.
How long will it take?
6-12 weeks depending on complexity. I will always try to adapt to your timeline so please make a note on your booking form and I will endeavour to help.
What metals do you use?
Sterling silver, yellow gold, white gold, and rose gold.
Can you source stones for me?
Yes, absolutely. This is one of the best parts of my job! I also have a small selection of stones I have collected for your reference or purchase.
Can you use my old jewellery or jewellery that was gifted to me in my new piece?
I can certainly remove and re-use your stones. In special circumstances I can re-use high carat yellow gold. Presently I am unable to re-use white gold, rose gold, silver or platinum.
How much will it cost?
There is a minimum spend of $800 for a bespoke piece. 9ct yellow gold pieces start at $1200, 18ct yellow gold pieces start at $2000. Please use the online store prices as a guide.
What if that is out of my budget?
I can modify any of the existing designs in my online store to contain different stones and small details. As you can appreciate, many hours go into the custom design of a ring, so altering an existing design is a more cost effective option.
What is the benefit of a bespoke piece?
We will work together to make a unique piece of precious jewellery especially for you or your treasured person.
