Our website provides an indication of David’s designs and style, a starting point in owning a piece of unique bespoke jewellery, hand made in his London workshop.
If you like his style of jewellery, David will make you something to wear and treasure for many years to come. Whether you are commissioning a piece directly from this website or you want something altogether different, contacting us begins the fascinating two-way process of inspiration and discussion which is entirely personalised and culminates in an agreed design and price. Working in 18ct gold and Platinum, mainly using sapphires, rubies, emeralds, and diamonds including many natural fancy colours.
Gem-stones are a life time passion. We have extensive stock of beautiful diamonds, sapphires, rubies & emeralds, not only in the tradition white, blue, red & green. We will gladly show you a selection of loose gem stones, discuss and explain the technical and aesthetic considerations to ensure the stone you choose meets your requirements, and is an ongoing delight.
Meeting us at our shop considerably enhances this process and also means that you will be able to try on pieces, seeing what suits, and what proportions and sizes are best.
We understand this isn’t always possible and are happy to offer a mail order service, using e-mail and telephone, to ensure all the details are perfect.
If you would like to make an appointment to discuss a commission, email or call.
When you commission a ring, we provide a silver “sizing” band – wearing this over a few days enables you to get a perfect fit.
Prices are guides, for the exact item shown. Everything is made from scratch to order. We have a component price list, from which we work out the cost of each commission, band width, finger size, stone weight and quantity, number of dots and circles etc…. can be selected to suit a design or budget.
With many years’ experience in sourcing and selecting gem stones (and studies at the Gemmological Association) ensures that you will be able to see at first hand the importance of cut, clarity and colour and choose something which suits you perfectly.
All the images shown, are of actual pieces of jewellery David has made, photographed in the shop, by a member of staff, not computer generated or enhanced.
