Custom Made Jewellery For You:
There’s a growing trend today among the public where there is a moving away from standard jewellery pieces and where the general public are looking for something more unique, a jewellery piece with a unique gemstone or a new type of precious metal. Perhaps a piece that has a history or that suits the clients eyes or specific skin-tone or piece of clothing. Others want the piece to mean something more than just a piece of jewellery.

They are wanting to go on a journey of discovery from sitting in the consultation room with the jeweller to seeing the sketch take shape on paper to testing the colours of various precious metals to finding matching gemstones to suit the jewellery piece and the wearer.

A Variety of Precious Metals to Choose From:
These days there is such a wide variety of precious metals to choose from. Besides the standard precious metals we all know there are many more to choose from, especially for those who are looking for something out of the ordinary.
