Making an Appointment
David is currently sitting at his jewellery bench working in isolation creating beautiful unique jewellery. In these strange grey times we are dedicated to injecting some sparkle and colour into your life to celebrate important milestones. We pride ourselves on providing an exceptional, personal service without compromise. We can arrange high quality video or phone calls to talk through your design ideas, and get a better understanding of your needs, whilst answering any questions you may have. We will show you jewellery we have in the shop and photos of bespoke jewellery pieces David has recently created. If you’ve commissioned David in the past, we have detailed records which have proved invaluable in helping keep new commissions a surprise when required.
We have a stunning selection of loose diamonds and gemstones for you to select from. It’s important that every detail is perfect, before David sets about making your flawless piece of bespoke jewellery.
The process is as near as it can be to coming to the shop, so most of the pre-covid information on this page hasn’t been edited. Once a commission is finished you can come in and pickup by appointment, or we can arrange insured delivery. We are sensitive to current Covid restrictions and are making health and shop safety a top priority.
If you see a design you like in our collection but would like it in a different combination of metal and gemstone, please contact us to discuss the options. 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.
Prices are guides, for the exact item shown. The stone type, weight and quantity, band width, finger size, number of dots and circles etc, can be selected to suit a design or budget. Any size, width and profile of ring can be made.
If buying a surprise gift, a extensive range is available to purchase from stock. This offers the ability to maintain an element of surprise, if for any reason it isn’t 100 % perfect, it can be exchanged for something that is.

The Best Materials
Gem-stones are a life time passion, prompting studies at the gemmological association in London of gem-stones & diamonds. We have significant experience in sourcing and selecting gem stones and have a unique selection of beautiful diamonds, sapphires, rubies & emeralds. David Makes rings that are designed for life, durable, comfortable, designed to be worn, all day every day. Bespoke London Jewellery
We will gladly show you a selection, discuss and explain the technical and aesthetic considerations to ensure the stone you choose meets your requirements, and is an ongoing delight.
Meeting us considerably enhances this process. It means that you will be able to try on pieces, see what suits, and what proportions and sizes are best. We understand this isn’t always possible so are happy to offer a mail order service, using numerous technologies, to ensure all the details are perfect.
If you would like to make an appointment to discuss a commission, email or call.
Following acceptance of the design and price, we generally require a 25% deposit and up to 6 weeks for production and delivery, often sooner.
When you commission a ring, we provide a silver “sizing” band – wearing this over a few days enables you to get a perfect fit.
