The Bespoke Experience
From rare and natural gemstones to unique storytelling flourishes, Moira Patience specialises in crafting exquisite bespoke jewellery that captures the essence of your individuality.
If you’d like to work with Moira and the team to create a bespoke piece then our complimentary design consultation is the best place to start.
Bespoke wedding rings start from £2,500
Bespoke engagement rings start from £6,000
"Jewellery represents such special moments in our lives – stories of friendship, celebration and true love that can be passed down generations and treasured forever."
The Bespoke Journey
The Bespoke Experience begins with a complimentary design consultation where we talk you through the design process and outline your inspiration, budget and ideas.
Moira and the team will help you identify materials and present a selection of responsibly sourced natural gemstones for you to choose from (if appropriate).
If you can't visit us in person, the whole process can be done virtually.
Sketches & Design
Following on from our initial consultation, Moira will sketch designs for you to choose from based on your ideas and budget.
Depending on your chosen design, we may then provide 3D visuals and the design can even be made in wax to make sure you’re completely happy before we begin crafting your bespoke jewellery in the workshop.
This process normally takes 2 - 3 weeks.
Handcrafted for You
Once you’ve approved the cost and signed off on your chosen design, your bespoke jewellery will be handcrafted by our master jewellers in our workshop in Scotland. Once it's finished you're invited to the showroom where we will present you with your new jewellery.
The process takes 4 - 6 weeks from confirmation to completion (depending on the complexity of design).
Shhh, it's a secret...
Don't worry, we can communicate entirely over email or WhatsApp to help keep it that way.
"Providing a magical bespoke experience has been my top priority since day one and when we get a lovely review from our clients it really means a lot to myself and the team."
"Moira has the magic touch! We went to her to design an engagement ring using diamonds from my grandmothers' ring which had been languishing in my jewel case for years. She brought them to life in THE most spectacular fashion matching with a large salt and pepper diamond. She also made a wedding band which fits very snuggly under the ring . It gets loads of attention which I love as it is a truly beautiful and very special ring designed by a very talented lady!"
"Exquisite design of both engagement and wedding rings. Moira and her team were super helpful in supporting design ideas, selecting the most beautiful of precious stones and securing them in timeless creations that we will treasure forever. No concepts seems crazy to Moira, who worked tirelessly to bring our ideas to life. We could not be happier to wear her wares on our hands. This is definitely the best place to visit for wonderfully bespoke wedding jewellery. We cannot thank her enough."
"Moira offers a wonderfully personal and professional service. She made the process of designing and creating my engagement ring easy and enjoyable. She teams her skills as a designer with a genuine warmth and attentiveness. Moira helped me to capture something personal and unique in what is a very special piece, and I know I'll love it for a lifetime. I also know I'll be back to see her in the future! Thank you Moira."
"Moira worked closely with me every step of the way on a stunning engagement ring. She is friendly and attentive, and did an amazing job converting my vague instructions into the perfect piece. My fiancé always had Patience Jewellery in mind, and she wasn't disappointed - the compliments from friends and family are still coming!"

in the Details
To reveal the true quality of craftsmanship you should always look at the back of the jewellery. Not only is their beauty to be found in the architecture of the piece, it’s also an opportunity to sneak in some unique personal touches, beautiful engraving or even a cheeky hidden gemstone.

Frequently Asked Questions
How long does the bespoke process take?
Please allow 12 weeks for the whole process starting from our fist in-person meeting.
What's the difference between Custom and Bespoke?
Our Custom service is for clients who love our existing designs, but would like to customise them and ad personal touches. Our core collection of Signature Style engagement rings and wedding rings are all customisable and perfect if you want something personalised without having to go full bespoke. These designs are a permanent part of our collection so we can create them at a slightly quicker turnaround than if you were to start from scratch and go full bespoke.
Our Bespoke service is for clients who would like to create a design that doesn’t already exist. Commissioning bespoke means designing and making something completely new. This premium service will naturally take longer, but at the end of it you will have a completely one-of-a-kind piece of jewellery crafted to your exact requirements.
If you're not sure which service is right for you our team is happy to help. Contact the showroom on 0131 526 3279 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for some friendly and professional advice.
