Do you work with international clients?

Do you have a minimum spend?

We have a minimum spend of around £2,000 for bespoke commissions. If you wish to order one of our existing ready-to-buy pieces, the prices are listed on the website. We will always confirm the final price with you before commencing work on your bespoke piece.

I have seen a ring I like, can you copy the design for me?

We can take inspiration from an existing design to create something new and unique, however, we will not copy another designers work.

Do your prices include VAT?

Yes, the final price quoted included 20% VAT.

What is your refund policy?

We offer a full refund within 30 days on ready-to-buy pieces bought from our showroom if the piece is returned in perfect condition. For bespoke orders, we ask clients to sign off on the final design before we proceed to manufacture so we are unable to offer any refund on bespoke orders. Customer satisfaction is our priority so if you have any issues with your bespoke piece, we are happy to try and resolve any problem to the best of our ability.

How do you ship orders?

All orders are shipped with next day delivery via royal mail and fully insured.

Where do your gemstones come from?

We source our gemstones from a number of suppliers based in UK. We also have suppliers for small, ethically run mines worldwide and suppliers for fully-traceable Canadian diamonds. Any cut diamond legally imported into the UK must abide by the Kimberley Process.
