Wow! What an amazing experience working with you all to create a truly special piece of jewellery! Using inherited pieces and combining them together was a wonderful idea. I enjoyed each step of the way from the initial hand sketches, CAD visuals and finally the finished article. Every time I look at it I smile and remember the very special people who left me the jewellery to be able to do this. Lara D-J. Facebook review.

Handmade Diamond Ring
-Firstly our client gave us a selection of rings that they didn’t wear, after a chat with Martin an initial design idea was ready to be built via the computer aided design software.
-Once Martin had built the design on the computer, a computer generated picture was emailed to our client. This design wasn’t to her taste so after another chat Martin modified the design.
-Another picture was emailed and and after a few tweak’s the design was then finalised.
-Martin began making the ring by unsetting any existing diamonds in the old jewellery, he then melted down all yellow material to form the main body of the new ring. Settings for each diamond were made next and soldered onto the gold band, these were arranged at different heights and in specific places so that the ring wasn’t symmetrical.
-Platinum twisted wires were soldered onto the band, this split the ring into three main sections.
-Once Martin had set the five diamonds he then pre polished the ring.
-The final stage was to create a textured background on the outer two sections of the ring and to leave the central area highly polished.
