The idea of having your jewellery bespoke made can be a daunting thought. And we understand it can be scary. Normally when you shop for jewellery, you have the finished product right in front of your eyes to look at before you buy and a price tag attached to it to tell you exactly how much of a commitment it will be. Bespoke jewellery is a little different… but while you won’t see the product until the end and your price is dependent on the design, it’s a piece of jewellery with much more meaning and sentiment. Not to mention it’s entirely unique.
It all sounds great when you word it like that, but you may need a little help to make the decision and to kick start the process.
Well, don’t worry. At The Goldsmithy, we’re here to help guide you through the process.
It will simply start with a conversation (free of charge!). We’ll sit you down in our cosy consultation room over a tea or coffee and get to know a little bit about you.
Don’t worry if you don’t have a clue what you want yet, we can help you through the whole thing and will ask you the right questions to find out what you want. Tell us your story and before you know it, we’ll be turning that story into a design. But you may have an exact idea in your head already, and that’s okay too – we’re here to help you complete it.
Ultimately we just want to get to know you! What you like, what you don’t like, what the occasion is, what your budget is, when your deadline is… It’s all-important to us.
Once we’ve figured out what you want, we’ll start to turn it into a reality by drawing out your initial design in the form of a quick sketch. You’ll be able to see different shapes and concepts if you need to. You never know, even the most thought out designs can turn out very different than expected on paper, so you may end up going through a few concepts. But we won’t stop until we’ve got a design that you love!
This is a great opportunity to see the options you’ve got and to add any extra details to make it even more unique should you wish. Sometimes seeing the design on paper sparks new ideas, which we’re happy to incorporate.
From here, we may need to source stones and materials for you so that you can choose them beforehand. Or you may have your own stones or old jewellery to use, whether it be from inherited jewellery or something you’ve bought yourself that you’re looking to transform into something new.
Now for the fun part… we’ve got to know you, completed your design and now we’re ready to get behind the bench and begin making your jewellery.
You can now leave your design in our capable hands. And don’t forget, you can even have the chance to get behind the bench yourself to make your mark on your unique jewellery!
