Bespoke Commissions

Our favourite work is creating one-of-a-kind bespoke wedding and engagement rings or remarkable fine jewellery pieces, which tell your story. The first thing we do is sit and talk with you, because how can we make work for someone who is a stranger?

Bespoke commissions give us a great opportunity to work closely with customers to bring special pieces to life. We hold personal consultations in our Devon studio or by video call and we work remotely with customers all over the world. We’re also happy to customise our existing designs

The Process

As heritage goldsmiths with over 40 years of experience, we are fortunate enough to be able to plan our schedule up to a year in advance. We do however hold some monthly spaces for interesting or unusual work that requires a short time frame. If you think this is you, then please do contact us.

Once your project is underway it takes 4-6 weeks to make a bespoke piece, although we can sometimes do it quicker in an emergency! Our remodelling skills are exceptional and very rare and people come from all over the country for us to make pieces for them. Consequently we have an 8 month waiting list for this kind of work, please do contact us with your idea and we can put you on our list.

Including as much detail as possible when you get in touch helps us produce something perfect for you, that you will treasure and love forever.

What to expect

For bespoke commissions, the process begins by talking through ideas and discussing the information you have provided based on the points above.

We can then start to advise on metal types, shapes and finishes to fit your brief in order to quote for the piece.

Design drawings are labour intensive and so for these there is a charge of £100 + VAT for Isabella to produce design drawings, - this includes two rounds of amendments. The first drawing will include all of our ideas and the final sketch will be narrowed down to a more detailed final sketch. The deposit will be deducted from the total price of the ring, which will be invoiced to you once the design is finalised and before we begin making your piece.

Sketch consultations can take place via email, phone call, WhatsApp, Facetime or in person in our studio.

All designs are owned by Isabella Day Goldsmith. If you would like to pay for exclusivity then this can be discussed.
