Bespoke Wedding and Engagement rings are our specialty and our website is a good place to start with some useful information on diamonds and guides to choosing wedding and engagement rings.


signet ring
I like to thank you for the beautiful signet ring you made for me. I am very happy with the result. The ring is superbly hand crafted within a very reasonable time. The balance is exactly right and therefore it “sits” on my finger without any feeling of discomfort. The engraving is precisely as I like it to be. Thank you once again. I can highly recommend your shop to anyone looking for great personal service and a specially designed and manufactured piece of jewelry.
