Frequently Asked Questions
is going bespoke more expensive?
I can create you an engagement ring that is far superior to anything you will find on the high street. There is no charge for my time, or for a design consultation, nor for my design work. I do not have large retail overheads to cover. I don’t sponsor polo matches or huge international tennis tournaments. This means that the amount you pay is not elevated to cover those additional business expenses. Instead, more of your budget is going into your ring; more of your budget is going into the most important part of your engagement ring - your diamond.
I am meticulous when it comes to selecting diamonds and unlike many jewellers, I don’t limit my choice to UK diamonds. I have been known to spend weeks liaising with diamond suppliers around the world to find the perfect diamond for my client. The quality and brilliance of the diamonds I select will never be found in mass-manufactured diamond rings on the high street.
How Long does designing and creating an engagement ring take?
The actual design process can be as quick as a few hours or it can take a few weeks. There are no limits to how many tweaks or changes you can make to your design, so if you are naturally indecisive, it may take several attempts before you’re 100% happy with your design.
Once you are delighted with your design and you’ve given me the go-ahead, it takes me between 4 and 6 weeks to create your ring.
What If I don’t know her ring size?
Firstly, don’t panic.
Secondly, consider asking her best friend or sister to find it out for you. Or they may be a similar size so they may be able to give you a good idea.
Or thirdly, if you can somehow discreetly send me a picture of her hand then I am pretty good at using my judgement and getting the finger size spot on! (I know! It’s a weird skill but it’s incredible beneficial)
Or, if all else fails, don’t worry, as most rings can be adjusted in size at a later date. I would suggest we can make a very good educated guess at her size and if the ring needs tweaking after your proposal, I will do that for her, no problem at all.
What if she doesn’t like the ring?
In over 25 years of designing and creating engagement rings it has never happened. However, I know the fear is real. So, if for whatever reason she’s not absolutely delighted, then I will work with her to tweak, change or transform the ring so that she is thoroughly overjoyed with her engagement ring.
I live far away - can you still create an engagement ring for me?
Many of my clients don’t live near Harrogate. I have clients in London, Cheshire, Scotland, America and in the Middle East. Everything can be done over the phone and through email. Just give me a call initially and let’s chat about your ideas. It will possibly be a lot easier than you think.
