We love working on custom orders and would be honoured to make an engagement ring for you! We can either customise a piece from our Wedding Collections using different stones, or metals, or we can design something completely unique for you.
- How much does a bespoke engagement ring cost?
This is a really hard question to answer as there are endless opportunities as to what can be created which is why creating a bespoke piece can be so amazing. Clarice is always happy to explore lots of different ideas but it's always helpful to know up front what your budget it as this really affects what materials she recommends for a particular design. Our bespoke pieces start from £1800 upwards.

Absolutely – starting with a stone is often the best way to begin designing a custom piece. Please don't hesitate to get in touch here for more information.

- Can you make a wedding ring to fit against my engagement ring?
We think it’s best to have a wedding ring which sits perfectly alongside your engagement ring, not only so it looks beautiful, but also for comfort. Clarice often designs wedding rings to fit an engagement ring; whether this requires a gentle curve which follows the stone, a sharp angle or a even a section cut away into the wedding ring. We love working on bespoke orders and would love to help make your wedding rings for you.

CARING FOR YOUR JEWELLERY
- How do I care for my jewellery?
We want to help you keep your jewellery looking it’s very best so you can always enjoy it. Please see our Jewellery Care page here to find out more information about cleaning, storing and caring for your jewellery.
We are proud to be a thriving young creative business with our roots firmly based in London. A big part of this is our unique process and choice of materials. We’ve created a special part of the website with in-depth information about how we work and the materials we use here, but we’ve covered a few questions below which you also may find useful.
- Where is your jewellery made?
We pride ourselves on being entirely London-based; everything is designed, made and finished by hand, in-house. Clarice completes most of the work at our studio in East London. All of our jewellery is meticulously handmade using carefully sourced materials. We never mass-produce pieces, ensuring that every piece is made with precision and perfectly finished. We use skilled craftsmen and women in Clerkenwell for our engraving and stone setting, and in Holloway for our casting. All of the stones used in our pieces are sourced from a family-run stone dealers based in Hatton Garden.
If you would like any further information about the production of our jewellery, please click here to see our Process page.
- What materials do you use?
The metals we use are Sterling Silver, 9ct and 18ct Yellow, Rose and White Gold and Platinum. All of our silver jewellery is also available in a 18ct Yellow Gold plate option – please do get in touch if there is a piece you’d like to purchase in a different metal type. All metals are hallmarked by the Goldsmiths Assay Office in London to authenticate the type of metal, location, date, and makers mark of the piece.
We use a variety of stones in our Silver Collections including different coloured sapphires, rubies and emeralds. Our Fine Collections feature diamonds. We love working on custom orders so please do get in touch if you’d like a particular stone or if you have a stone you’d like us to work with.
- What is gold plating?
Gold plating is a process where the metal is coated with layers of gold. We only use 18ct Yellow Gold for our plating and all pieces are hard gold plated rather than flash plating ensuring your piece will last longer. With wear and tear gold plating does gradually wear off to reveal the metal underneath (which is always silver). For a small charge, we are happy to gold plate an item purchased from us again for you. We have a special section on our Jewellery Care page where you can find out more about how to ensure your gold plate lasts as long as possible.
