Come with an idea, a stone or some sentimental jewellery – or come with just your imagination!
Due to Covid-19 restrictions, please call us to book a socially-distant appointment at our showroom.
Or call or email us with your thoughts and we’ll advise the best route to getting the objet d’art of your dreams.
Tell us about your tastes, colour preferences, how often you’re likely to wear the piece and what you might be doing in an average day. This will enable us to make recommendations an steer us towards design decisions based on you as an individual . We’ll request a fitting down the line to ensure your piece is tailored perfectly.
We offer a vast collection of dynamic gemstones from across the world – you’re welcome to choose – and we’ve developed exclusive Noble Alloys to complement your choices. Of course not everyone will want gemstone(s), but we’re sure you’ll be head-over-heels for one (or several) of our extraordinary Precious Metals!
A Heritage Commission is a bespoke piece of jewellery hand-forged by Chris which utilises sentimental gold of any purity (but not plated) provided by the customer. This give new life to unfashionable but not unsentimental inheritances, to broken jewellery, or to any gold a customer wishes to wear in a Bespoke Commission.
The processing of your metal is photographed step by step as it is individually refined to pure (done separately from other commissions ) and then alloyed to the customer’s preferred purity (usually 18ct, but the sky’s the limit!).
The cost of such an enterprise can be variable from person to person, depending on the amount of gold supplied – i.e will we have to supply some of our own to make up the correct weight – but we can say that the cost of Heritage Commissions will be calculated using the following formula:
Cost of the Design + Value of any chosen Gemstones + 50% processing fee – weight of gold provided (translated into the desired purity) + any additional gold needed (supplied by us)
You have all the choice in the world but you don’t have any sentimental gold. No problem! We supply all the metal, then your chosen stones and/ or designs are translated into an item of jewellery:
Cost of the Design + Value of any chosen Gemstones + weight of gold in correct purity (supplied by us)
