At Plants the Jewellers we’re always delighted to work with customers wanting to have a hand in the design of their own jewellery. Bespoke design give us the privilege of capturing unique and personal stories and creating one off designs that reflect the personalities of our customers their important life events connected to their new jewellery, whether it be an engagement, wedding, anniversary or birthday. We can use your own diamonds and gemstones to modernize an older piece or create something brand new.
We use a variety of techniques to create or remodel jewellery from the traditional hand making to computor aided designs. We can create some hand pieces in our onsite workshop and for larger re modelling (for example melting down of gold) we send to another local craftsman in the area. For our more complex designs requiring computer aided designing we use a couple of different workshops based in the jewellery quarter and London's Hatton Garden. All the craftsman and workshops we use are extremely high quality and trustworthy, and we examine every item that is sent back to us before giving it to you to make sure it's of the highest quality.
All our staff are highly trained and passionate in their fields. We have two trained goldsmiths and two gemologists on site who can provide all the knowledge and expertise you need to create your perfect piece of jewellery.
We are with you all the way through the process, starting out with a consultation to discuss your idea, we do some rough sketches during this to give you variety of ideas to decide from, and to make sure we incorporate all the aspects of the design you are looking for.
We can then do finalised drawings, or go into a Computer aided design process for more complex designs.
Once you are completely happy with your chosen design we start to make it and gather the relevant gem stones and models. You can be involved or un-involved as you like, it can be exciting to come and choose which diamond for its clarity and colour or shades of gemstones colours. You can try on models of you ring in wax before its created in the finished metal to double check you are happy with the dimensions and overal fit of the item if it is a CAD design. Or you can leave it all to be a surprise at the end its up to you!
If you would like to know more or have any questions about having something made please get in tough and we are more than happy to help.
