Bespoke Love Stories


If you want to give a gift from the heart that is treasured forever, it has to be bespoke. Love, individuality and passion shine through with our bespoke creations.

Many of our clients like to give bespoke jewellery presents at Christmas or special occasions, and our advice is always – start early!

Creating a unique piece of jewellery that reflects your loved one’s personality takes time and it is something you don’t want to rush.

A masterpiece in progress – here is a sneak peek during the handmade build of a unique Venetian Mask gold pendant.

This bespoke commission is for a client who loves travel, Venice and the art scene. After the difficulties of the last 18 months, we are bringing these experiences to her in the form of an incredible pendant. The finished piece will feature rubies, sapphires and diamonds.


A modern classic. This 3.28ct vivid blue certified Sri-Lanka sapphire was set with baguette diamonds, which step down to create depth and layers.

We have worked with this client on a number of pieces, including the consolidation of her jewellery collection and reimagining some older pieces.

This beautiful ring was created to embody her passion for the art deco style. It went through several stages of the design process until we got the perfect interpretation of her idea.


We love rubies and were excited to source this 3.28ct vivid red ruby for a very special commission. This beautiful stone has the highly regarded “Pigeons Blood” colour and is certified by renowned Swiss Gem Lab, GRS.

This ruby and diamond pendant was created to be a loving reminder of the client’s late husband who often travelled and loved gems. She now can wear him close to her heart.

Making a Diamond Ring

Ever wondered how a diamond ring is made? It takes our master jewellers years to perfect the art of handcrafting jewellery – here’s a glimpse into their world.


Fancy Yellow Diamond Eternity Ring

This beautiful eternity ring was a custom design and is a unique piece of jewellery that is very much loved by its owner.

Our client selected 18k yellow gold as the metal for her ring, with 21 individual 0.25 carat fancy intense yellow diamonds.

Handcrafted Jewellery

Have a look at our video to see this exquisite ring being created by our expert jeweller.

The video is only 20 seconds long, but it actually took around 21 hours to handcraft the diamond eternity ring.

The process involved individually positioning each stone and ensuring they all fit perfectly within a full eternity ring.

These rare diamonds are cushion cut and hand set into the gold ring. This is done by carefully adding back holes to the shank so that more light enters the ring and reduces the weight giving a luxurious feel when worn.

Securing these rare diamonds required carefully crafted claws that are shaped like the talons of a bird of prey, giving a highly detailed finish.
