Creating Personalised Jewellery With Meaning

Creating personalised jewellery is the perfect way to give a meaningful gift to someone special! Whether it’s an anniversary, graduation, birthday, milestone  – or any other special event – these three techniques will help you get it just right!

Symbolism

Symbolism can be a unique and powerful way to add meaning to jewellery! It allows you to communicate something that has meaning for you and the person you are creating the piece for – a thoughtful and unique connection!

Daniel had this ‘peas in a pod’ brooch custom-made of silver and pearls. He presented it to Rebecca to celebrate their 10 years of marriage together. The three pearls represent their three children and while the pod-form suggests the closeness and intimacy of their relationship.

The concept behind our ‘Woven’ collection explores the way we become entwined with someone during a particular period of our life. The pieces in this series feature a fluid, enhanced loop that represents the point when paths cross and become ‘woven’ together.

Date Jewellery

Commemorate an important date with a personalised jewellery piece! This technique is a great way to create meaningful jewellery for milestone occasions such as birthdays, weddings, graduations or other significant achievements that are worth celebrating!

Design Your Own Engagement Ring in 4 Steps

With such a significant moment in your life, it’s important to get the ring right! But that’s not always an easy task… It can be hard to design your own engagement ring when the options seem endless! Would a simple engagement ring suit your style? Or is a bespoke sapphire engagement ring the right choice for you?

We’ve identified 4 key elements to help you design your own engagement ring.

 

Symbolise

How will your engagement ring symbolise your relationship and your journey together? We have a questionnaire that can help you gather your thoughts and distinguish what you would most like your ring to represent.

This platinum engagement ring and wedding band features a series of emerald and baguette cut diamonds. The art deco inspired style presents a unique geometric aesthetic. The layout and number of diamonds have been designed specifically to symbolise the couple’s journey together.

Style

To narrow down the style that best suits you, it can be helpful to gather images of rings you like and identify what it is about them that appeals to you most. Don’t feel like you need to stick to one type – sometimes a combination of elements and styles can help you design your own engagement ring that is perfectly unique and tailored to you! Using these images as a springboard, we can work together to uncover your perfect engagement ring style.

Cassie’s custom engagement ring is a unique combination of traditional elegance and contemporary form. It has a smooth band of rose and white gold with a 0.9 carat diamond that appears to float!

Stone

Do you want a gemstone that takes centre stage, or is a cluster of smaller gems more your style? Either way, you’ll want something durable that will last the distance. For this reason, stones like sapphires, diamonds or rubies can be a great choice! Once you know what look you want to go for, we can help you source the right stone for your design and your budget. Or if you already have a stone you want to use, we can work with that too!

Spend

You can create a stunning engagement ring on a range of budgets, so knowing how much you’d like to spend will help narrow down the right ring for you.
