A Bespoke Jewellery Service
Beginning the journey to a custom-made piece of jewellery couldn't be easier. Always at hand to answer any questions, you can get in touch with me directly either through the 'One-of-a-kind Jewellery Enquiry Form' link on the homepage quicklinks, or send me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
To help me understand your vision and how best I can create the piece of your dreams, I do things in two stages to make sure I am paid for my time and to ensure you are not held to progressing beyond the design if the time is not right.
Stage 1 - Design Consultation - Bespoke Design
Meeting you is the best way for me to find solutions and suggest ways of bringing your unique new piece of jewellery to life.
For a reduced fee of £65, I offer virtual design consultations over Whatsapp or Zoom where we can have a quick chat to clarify the 'brief'.
Included in this fee are two to three outline design/concept sketches along with a cost estimate/quote for the manufacture of the preferred design option.
Stage 2 - Design Manufacture
Once your outline design has been finalised and Stage 1 complete, more detailed Stage 2 sketches/working drawings are produced, sometimes 3D CAD drawings are required if a piece is particularly gemstone encrusted.
Once sizing (if piece is a ring or bracelet in particular) and final budget are agreed, the creation of your one-of-a-kind bespoke design can begin.
All of my clients love receiving regular 'at the bench' working pics of their exciting new pieces progressing - so with your permission I'll keep you informed via email or Whatsapp throughout the making process where possible.
When your piece is complete, you'll receive the final photo shoot before the final payment is arranged. Your fabulous piece will then be carefully wrapped in elegant black and white MION recyclable packaging to ensure it's protection while being shipped off to it's delighted new owner...you!
Stage 1 - The virtual design consultation is approx 20-30 mins. After which, I may be in touch via txt to ask a couple more questions. Approx 1 week from Virtual to receive 2-3 outline designs.
Stage 2 - Manufacture can take from 4-6 weeks depending on the complexity of the design and the availability of materials including precious gemstones that need specially ordered and shipped.
Unless otherwise agreed, Stage 1 Design Consultation fee must be paid before Stage 2 can go ahead.
Once remaining costs are fully agreed, 50% deposit is to be paid before work commences, with the remaining 50% to be paid on completion of the work.
Alternative payment plans can be arranged as long as agreed before work commences - the finished item is posted when the balance is paid in full.
Returns on Bespoke
Bespoke pieces are made according to individual client's specifications and therefore returns are not accepted.
Thinking Bespoke? Get in touch
It takes time to get the right design and materials, and, as your piece is a one-of-a-kind it's never been made before so planning ahead is advantageous. Depending on where your finished item is to be sent, it is advisable to contact me a minimum of 6-8 weeks in advance of the date required, particularly for engagement and wedding rings as design really is the best material of choice.
If you have any questions about my Bespoke Jewellery Service, please email Zoe at email@example.com or send me a message via Facebook or Instagram.
I look forward to hearing from you.
