The Handmade Process

Understanding Your Partner

Our process starts with a complimentary consultation which can be conducted in person at our showroom or online. In this meeting we will have a discussion with you about your unique wants and needs from the item of jewellery you are acquiring. 

Many clients like to do their research first, however if you are unsure about where to begin that’s absolutely fine, we can help you develop your brief from early conception.

Purposefully Designed

All of our jewellery is designed and crafted to reflect you and your personal style. Every piece we create is made to be a family heirloom, a truly one of a kind piece that tells you and your partner’s unique love story.

Furthermore, we pride ourselves on crafting wearable pieces. We will discuss your lifestyle and specific requirements and make you a piece you can enjoy everyday, without hassle.

Made To Order For You

Once you have confirmed your design our skilled team of artisans will craft your item in Auckland City. We are uncompromising in standards and as such this process normally takes between 4 and 6 weeks.

As we are bespoke jewellers we love involving our clients in this process and will keep you regularly updated as to our progress.
