Custom-made & bespoke jewellery
is custom-made jewellery more expensive?"
You might be surprised. Custom-made isn't always as expensive as mass-produced jewellery for several reasons. Bespoke jewellery allows for more control over the choice of materials and design elements. By carefully selecting materials within a specific budget range and opting for simpler designs, it's possible to create custom pieces that are more affordable.
Additionally, you have the opportunity to work directly with the Jeweller, which eliminates the middleman and associated markups. This direct collaboration can lead to cost savings and a more transparent pricing structure.
What's the turnaround time for custom & bespoke jewellery?
Great question but unfortunately it's a tricky to one answer as there are so many variables. As a rough guideline, allow 8 weeks for your custom or bespoke jewellery to be crafted once you've approved the design and estimate.

What types of silver do you use?
We use 925 sterling silver and continuum sterling silver.
How do I care for my 925 silver jewellery?
925 sterling silver will tarnish over time. We recommend you clean your silver jewellery regularly with a soft cloth or a silver polishing cloth. Gently rub the cloth over the surface of the jewellery to remove any dirt or tarnish.
What is continuum sterling silver?
Continuum sterling silver is a patented sterling silver alloy designed to offer numerous advantages for jewellery. With over 95% precious metal content, continuum silver represents a breakthrough in the world of silver alloys and represents a significant advancement in the jewellery industry, offering a sterling silver alloy that combines the best of both worlds - impressive aesthetics and exceptional durability.
- Exceptional tarnish resistance: Continuum silver boasts superior oxidization and tarnish resistance compared to traditional sterling silver. This means that jewellery and other items made from this alloy will maintain their lustrous appearance for a more extended period.
- Strength of continuum: The strength of continuum silver falls between those of 14K yellow gold and most other sterling silver alloys.
This innovative material allows us to create exquisite pieces that stand the test of time while maintaining the timeless beauty of silver.
What's the difference between 925 sterling silver and continuum sterling silver?
We believe there is a place for both 925 sterling silver and continuum sterling silver, so you will find both are used in our jewellery.
Sterling silver is a popular metal for making jewellery due to its beauty, durability, and affordability. Both 925 sterling silver and continuum sterling silver are types of sterling silver, but they have slight differences in their composition and properties, and jewellery stores might use both for specific reasons.
925 Sterling Silver:
- Composition: 925 sterling silver is made from 92.5% pure silver and 7.5% of other metals, usually copper. This composition is often marked as "925" or "Sterling" on jewellery to signify its purity.
- Durability: It is known for its durability and is suitable for various jewellery pieces, including rings, necklaces, bracelets, and earrings.
- Tarnish Resistance: While sterling silver can tarnish over time due to exposure to air and moisture, the copper alloy helps to make it more tarnish-resistant than pure silver.
- Cost: 925 sterling silver is more affordable compared to some other precious metals like gold or platinum.
Continuum Sterling Silver:
- Composition: Continuum sterling silver is a type of sterling silver that has been specially formulated to resist tarnishing better than traditional sterling silver. It is typically composed of at least 92.5% silver and the remainder made up of various other metals.
- Durability: It shares the durability of traditional sterling silver and is suitable for various jewellery types.
- Tarnish resistance: Continuum sterling silver is engineered to have enhanced tarnish resistance, making it less prone to discolouration over time compared to regular sterling silver.
- Cost: Continuum sterling silver is generally more expensive than traditional 925 sterling silver due to its improved tarnish resistance and specialised composition.
