When ordering rings, it is your responsibility to ensure you order the correct size. A Ring ordered in the incorrect size can be re-sized, but this will be subject to a charge. Ring sizing charges start at £60.
Wedding rings start at £920 and Engagement Rings start at £2000. Depending on the metal and stones required will determine your price. The best thing to do is fill out the one of the design forms to get a quote. If you have a budget you would like to stick to email Steph and she will work with you to design a ring around your budget.
The best way to get a quote is to fill in one of the design forms. Steph will then email with a quote for your design. Or you could book in for a design meeting and you can work through the design together.
With bespoke commissions we do not take returns or refunds, the reason being is the design is created especially for you. The idea of you being able to see your ring come together in the making journey ensures that you will be happy with your ring at the end because you have watched it come together. While I am creating it and sending you photos this is the time where you can change any design ideas in the middle of the process if something isn’t right.
I am booked up months in advance and it’s only me so I am only able to take a certain amount of meetings a month. Each order it important to me and I am in touch all the time sending photos of the rings being made so each client is treated the same with a special experience.
Once you have paid your first deposit this is when the process starts. A plain band typically takes between 8-10 weeks to complete. Rings with details such as stones and engraving take between 10-12 weeks. Please ensure you give yourself enough time to design your ring at the start.
Rings can usually be designed within a 40 minute meeting. Steph will talk through all the design ideas and work out with you a design that suits you or your partners personality and lifestyle.
With all ring commissions, postage will be included. If you are posting for alterations or polishing, postage charge will start at £7.50.
