The average spend on an engagement ring in the UK is a little over £1750.00 – and it need not cost much more to have a ring especially designed and custom made for you. With our low overheads, a similar bespoke ring will cost between £100 and £400 extra – so we’d recommend allowing a budget of up to £2,000. However, we have also designed rings costing £20000.00 and over. Whatever your budget, we can help you create the perfect ring!
The answer is a Yes! It is hard to find a fault with the Lab Grown diamonds and for all intent and purposes it is the same as a natural grown diamond in terms of characteristics it just isn’t formed in the ground over millions of years it is grown a laboratory. The Lab grown diamonds come with GIA and IGI diamond certifications of authenticity as well – just without the price tag of a natural diamond. As a guide – the price difference is around half that of a natural diamond ring or piece of jewellery.
You can pay by card, cash or a bank transfer.
For everyday wear and an engagement ring that will stand the test of time this is a no. The gemstone used needs to be a grade 7 or above on the Moh’s scale of hardness with diamond being the hardest at 10. I will advise best possible for you once an enquiry is made – so there is no harm in asking!
For a small surcharge we can produce rings very quickly, so please contact us whatever your timescale; we will always find a way if we can. However, generally speaking please allow six to eight weeks for the process from start to finish. This can be even quicker if you decide to buy the gemstones and design the ring together once gifted.
This is the most common fear that we come across – even more so than whether the answer will be yes or no! But fear not because you’re in safe hands with us. Working together with you every step of the way, we’ll craft a wonderful, unique, and personal ring which we hope will be adored forever. However, to completely eliminate any chance that you get it wrong, why not consider presenting the gemstone at the proposal and then design the ring together afterwards.
Don’t worry, you’re in the hands of experts. We can get a good idea even from a photograph, so a sneaky picture taken by you and whizzed over to us will help. We then have a few tricks of the trade that more often than not will mean the ring will fit perfectly. And if it does need a little adjustment after the proposal, just come back and it will be done quickly and free of charge.
Of course we’d prefer for you to visit our Cheltenham studio – especially when we hand over the ring and crack open a bottle of Prosecco to celebrate! However, we can always chat via email, Facebook, Whatsapp, Skype or Instagram – or even come to visit you. Whatever suits you, suits us! Remember that we can also meet in the evenings or weekends if you prefer as well.
Yes, we’re fully accredited to prepare official valuations. We charge £50 for up to three items, and £15 per additional item thereafter. We always adhere to the good practices as laid out by the National Association of Jewellers.
Absolutely! Re-modelling is such a great way to breathe new life into existing pieces that hold precious memories. We have many requests to incorporate existing jewellery into engagement rings. Don’t stop there though; we can also help you to create a pair of cufflinks from old earrings, a necklace from an old ring, a lapel pin from an engagement ring – and more! You’ll also have the added bonus of creating a custom made piece of jewellery at a reduced cost. Find out more here.
Get in touch. You’ll be surprised at just how creative we can be.
Hannah has been an absolute dream to work with! Not only is she a lovely person she produces incredible beautiful unique jewellery to suit any need. Nothing was too much hassle for her, she explained absolutely everything in detail and gave her opinion on what would work best. I am beyond excited to wear my bespoke wedding ring. It fits like a puzzle to my engagement ring and is everything I could have wished for and so much more.
Working with Hannah to design a bespoke engagement ring was a thoroughly enjoyable experience from beginning to end. Hannah was charming, professional and very informative. The initial concept was executed superbly and resulted in a beautiful ring that my fiancée adores. I could not be happier with the final product and the knowledge that it is a unique piece enhances its appeal. Hannah was even able to complete the ring within my time constraints allowing me to propose in my dream destination. If you are looking for an individual ring that caters to your own specifications and looks spectacular, I cannot recommend Hannah highly enough.
Everything about the ring that Chris designed for me is perfect! I love emeralds and yellow gold and I wanted a little additional sparkle too. Hannah helped him to create something so thoughtful for me, it also helps that she is my best friend so being her first official customer makes it even more special!
My engagement ring is the most beautiful ring I have ever seen, and every day I look at it and think how lucky I am. Knowing that Will didn’t just go into a shop and pick it from a shelf makes it extra special. I love having something a bit different. Everywhere I go, people comment on how lovely it is. Thanks so much to Hannah for helping Will give me the most perfect ring. He has nothing but great things to say about the whole experience
I proposed on the day we moved into our first home together. I told Sophie to get the last box from the car and there in the boot was Hannah’s beautifully packaged ring – she burst into tears and said yes!
After 27 years of marriage, my wife was devastated when she lost her engagement ring. Hannah did an incredible job of recreating it simply from my description and from photographs. Imagine my wife’s face when I gave it to her as a surprise on Christmas Day
