Initial contact

The start of your journey

Our personal and professional team will respond in a timely manner to advise or guide you as to the appropriate next steps specific to your needs.

Our town house based showroom provides the privacy and discretion required for an initial appointment. We shy away from a traditional retail approach, instead making it our mission to educate our clients in an environment more akin to an exclusive members club than a high street store.

The best purchases are made off the high street at the source

Stone sourcing

Traceable diamonds and gemstones

With a sustainable and transparent supply chain, we are able to offer clients traceable gems straight from the source.

Based on your unique requirements, we will prepare a selection of stones for you to analyse at your consultation. From "blind tasting" multiple diamonds for an engagement ring to a detailed review of specifically procured gemstones, our certified gemologists will talk you through the intricacies and unique characteristics of every stone.

Learn more

For clients purchasing engagement rings, we use a “Blind tasting” approach to diamond and gem selection as part of the initial education.

We see many clients swamped in detail after initial research. The aim of this top down approach is to support a more pragmatic attitude whilst simultaneously building a deep knowledge of the interplays between quality and price.

Gouache design

Creativity and passion at the heart of everything we do

Our highly skilled in-house designers are able to prepare artistic designs that can be considered masterpieces in their own right.

CAD design

Following a 3D laser scan of the diamonds and gemstones our expert CAD designers will work tirelessly to develop the core construct of the ring in the optimal proportions. The output of which provides an insight in to the final design perspective.

Wax 2

Wax prototype

A 3D wax print of the design will be created, with each component being modeled separately, to allow an individual mould to be created for every element ahead of casting.

Assembly and casting

Individually cast and assembled by hand

We focus on unrivalled quality and consequently cast each component of our pieces separately ahead of assembling them by hand. This ensures total quality control in the casting phase and mitigates against unwanted flaws associated with lump casting, such as air bubbles and fissures, which could create weaknesses in the pieces.

Stone setting

Show your treasures in the best light:

"Over 50% of most jewels are metal. Exceptional craftsmanship can raise the perceived quality of any gem". Samuel Stirrat – Founder

We pride ourselves on the quality of our setters with our near invisible signature talon claws and side cut scallop settings allowing the maximum amount of light to reflect and refract through the stones whilst guaranteeing total security.

Final ring

Exceptional quality straight from the workshop

Our clients collect their final ring from the workshop where it was made, from the hands of the craftsmen and women that made it. Our case studies shed more light on our unique client service.
