YOUR STORY IS AT THE HEART OF OUR ETHOS AND WE’D LOVE TO HELP YOU TELL IT
We will spend one-to-one time with you to help you design a piece of ethical diamond jewellery that is symbolic and meaningful to you and your loved one. Designing your own bespoke piece of jewellery is appropriate for many of life’s special moments – from engagements and weddings, to birthdays and anniversaries – and for us, it’s a real privilege to be a part of it all.
Being ethical is at the core of our ethos, and that includes being fairly priced. We are honoured to be part of your special journey bringing your ideas to life and producing beautiful, heirloom quality jewellery without the scary price-tag that you would be expected to pay for an equivalent quality piece from a high street diamond jeweller. We specialise in gem technology using the Ethica Diamond and laboratory created gem stones.
Our workshop has over 25 years experience of handcrafting diamond jewellery, so you can place your confidence in us to transform your ideas and inspirations into beautiful diamond jewellery, that is hand finished to the highest possible standard in our Cornish-based workshop.
Whether the item is for yourself or a loved one, you know the design you want better than anyone. That’s why we will work with you to design and create a unique piece of jewellery, such as an engagement ring, that perfectly reflects the recipient’s personality and style.
All you have to do is enquire, then you can trust us to guide you along your personal journey from there.
EVERY PIECE OF OUR CREATED DIAMOND JEWELLERY IS HAND-FORGED USING TRADITIONAL METHODS IN CORNWALL, FOR THE MOST INTIMATE AND PERSONAL BESPOKE JOURNEY IMAGINABLE
1. INITIAL CONSULTATION
If you’re able to visit us in person, we’ll show you a selection of our finished pieces to help illustrate some of the options and styles. Perhaps you have a clear vision of the bespoke engagement ring you would like us to make a reality.
Some of our clients like to share pictures of their ideas, which is helpful, but if you’re not sure about the design you want, don’t worry! Our designer can sketch a variety of design options, providing the imagination for you, creating something which exactly suits the nature and lifestyle of the person who will be wearing it.
Guided by your preferences and budget, we’ll identify the design that best meet your requirements, and we’ll help you choose the perfect stone or stones for your ring. To work with you to draw up some designs, we only require a £300 deposit, which would be deducted from the total quotation.
2. UNABLE TO VISIT IN PERSON?
We are fortunate to be located in Cornwall, which is a beautiful part of the country. Many of our clients like to make a special occasion out of designing their ring and tie in a romantic weekend break to begin this special process. We would be delighted to invite you for a one-to-one consultation in our beautiful showroom.
However, others feel that they live too far away to visit us or they are based overseas, and so it isn’t a problem if you’re unable to visit our premises. We are very happy to work with you over the phone and by email. We can send you photographs of stones, designs and finished pieces. We can also make a model of the piece that we are designing for you and deliver it to you (even overseas!) for approval before it goes into production.
Once your design has been perfected and you are ready to proceed to the next steps, we can begin to create your bespoke diamond engagement ring or other item in our workshop, completely by hand. We will give you insights of the creation process with photos of the journey, from casting and setting through to polishing.
Once the design has been agreed, we will ask for 50% of the outstanding balance before we proceed with casting in your chosen precious metal.
If you would like the opportunity to have a model of your piece made up, it will take approximately 7-10 days in addition to the estimated lead time, but it does give you that extra peace of mind that we have completely understood the exact details of your commission before it is cast. We can create this for you, set with sample stones. This way, you have the opportunity to see a close facsimile of what your completed piece will look like, and it gives you a good idea of proportions, too.
4. DELIVERY OF YOUR UNIQUE JEWELLERY
Only at this stage do we request the final balance payment.
Your beautifully finished, bespoke engagement ring is thoroughly inspected and will be ready to be collected or securely shipped to you. It will be carefully hand packaged in our eco-friendly and luxurious packaging – our way of thanking you for entrusting us with something so precious!
And that’s it. You have the confidence that comes from knowing that you’ve commissioned something truly extraordinary and right in every way. Your bespoke jewellery tells your own personal story and will be treasured for generations to come.
Every piece of Ethica Diamond jewellery undergoes rigorous quality assurance checks, which is why we offer a lifetime guarantee with complete confidence.
