Ring Design Service

Our promise to you is to deliver your perfect engagement ring.  To keep that promise, we offer a custom ring design service, to either work with a ring we already have or else create a completely new piece.   There is no set formula to choosing an engagement ring.  It can take time, thought (but not over thinking!), and guidance along the way.  Our job is not to sell you one of our designs,  it is to help you create your own.  We draw out the style and personality within you and help you portray that in your sparkling engagement ring.

Have an Engagement Ring already?

You may already have your engagement ring and so we also make wedding and eternity rings.  So whether you are looking for a shaped band to fit around your engagement ring or you would like a unique eternity ring with high quality gemstones to wear on your right hand, let us help you find the one.

For bespoke ring design the process goes like this:

  1. Initial Consultation: 

    Book an appointment with us to come in and sit down (at the moment due to Covid-19, we are working by virtual digital appointments) and browse our range of ‘ready-to-go’ and sample collection of rings.  From there we can put together a list of criteria for your bespoke design.  For example, a particular band width, setting type or height of the ring.

  2. CAD Drawing:

    7-10 days later you will receive a CAD drawing of your design with a full quotation.  You have the option to make as many changes as you like to your ring design. We will work with you until the design is perfect.  There is an add-on option here to receive a wax model of the ring if you wish.

  3. Craft & Hallmarking:

    Once the CAD drawing is approved and a 20% deposit is paid, the ring is then made by our team of expert goldsmiths and stone setters.   It then goes for Hallmarking which is a quality mark stating the metal type and metal content of the ring.  This whole process generally takes 4-6 weeks.


  4. Fitting: 

    The ring is now ready for a fitting!  We arrange a time that suits you to come in and try on your own design.   You have the option of collecting the ring or if you wish you can pay off on it by installments.

Our bespoke engagement ring, wedding ring and eternity ring design service is the ideal solution if:

  • So you really like a ring we have, but you’d like to change the size of the diamond, colour of the band from yellow to white gold, or some other aspect. We can arrange any of those changes, so you get the ring that perfectly matches your heart’s desire.

  • You love different aspects of two or more rings you have tried, and wish to marry them together in a new ring.

  • Do you wish to recreate a beloved design of sentimental value, such as a ring worn by your mother or grandmother?

  • You already have a distinctive or uniquely-styled engagement ring, and are now seeking a particular style of wedding ring to complement it.

  • Are you are seeking a particular type of eternity ring to complement both engagement and wedding rings?

  • You have an image in your mind of your dream ring, or have seen pictures of styles you like.

Our staff will offer expert guidance at all stages of the design process, including advice not just on diamonds, but also on other precious stones that can also help to make your vintage style ring a truly personalised and charming piece.  From design stage to after sales service, we will work to the highest of standards and offer an experience like no other.

Coloured Gemstones

Subtly-placed sapphires, rubies, birthstones, or other gems can bring truly unique character to your vintage ring design.  The correct choice can reflect your own character and personality. See our Guide to Gemstones for more on the choices available.
