How do we start the process?
The bespoke journey begins with an initial conversation over the phone or via email to establish your inspiration, ideas and budget. We can then arrange a private consultation with Moira for a time that suits you.
Bespoke prices start from £2,500.
Private Consultation with Moira
After our initial conversation you are invited to visit the showroom for a complimentary consultation where Moira will help you identify materials and present an assortment of the finest gemstones for you to choose from.
If you’re unable to visit the showroom, Moira is happy to work with you over the phone and by email or Skype.
Bringing your ideas to life
Following on from the consultation, Moira carefully considers your inspiration and intentions and uses a combination of traditional drawing and Computer Aided Design to provide visuals of your design. The design can then be fine tuned and even made in wax to make sure you’re completely happy before we begin making your bespoke jewellery.
This process normally takes 2 - 3 weeks.
Making your bespoke jewellery
Once you’ve approved the cost and signed off the design, your bespoke jewellery will be handmade by our master jeweller in our workshop in Scotland. Exceptional craftsmanship is at the heart of what we do. Using modern techniques and traditional skills we will create a truly one-off piece that will last a lifetime and beyond.
The process takes 4 - 6 weeks from confirmation to completion (depending on complexity of design).
Once your jewellery has been beautifully finished and thoroughly checked, it will be presented in our luxurious packaging along with the original drawings, ready for you to collect in person, or for us to securely ship to you.
We have a minimum spend of around £2,500 for bespoke commissions. We will always confirm the final price with you before commencing work on your bespoke piece.
We generally need 12 weeks from start to finish to create your bespoke jewellery. It may be slightly longer if we are trying to source an unusual gemstone or are making a complicated design. If you're in a hurry we will do our best to accommodate you so please let us know when you require the piece by when you make your initial enquiry.
Yes, we remodel existing jewellery for clients all the time and love breathing new life into older pieces. Find out more here.
We source our gemstones from a number of suppliers based in the UK. We 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. Read more about that here.
Our bespoke jewellery is handmade and finished by our master jeweller in our workshop in Scotland. We're proud of our fine craftsmanship and are dedicated to creating truly exceptional jewellery which will last for generations to come.
