You can view designs and stones and make any necessary amendments. We will confirm on all the details to begin to bring your piece of jewellery to life.

You will approve the final details, design and necessary materials required for the piece.
6. Costs & Timeline
Michael Platt will confirm price and delivery date. We typically need 3 to 6 weeks to complete your custom jewellery from scratch and a deposit of 50%.
7. Producing your Jewellery
Depending on the method used – your piece may be first be freely hand carved in wax, prior to casting. We can invite you to view your piece in its creative first wax stage if appropriate or a CAD detailed drawing and plan will be created from which the piece may be cast.
If it is to be cast, you may see your piece, still in a very raw state, for fitting prior to any stones being set.
Once your piece has been set and polished, it is sent to the Assay Office for Hallmarking.
8. Final Visit & Collection
The final visit is always the best part and it is always satisfying for us to see the reaction of the customer when we hand over their completed piece of beautiful jewellery.
The final 50% payment is required on completion and can be paid either prior to or on the day of collection before the piece is released.
