Your Questions Answered

 

Designing your own unique bespoke jewellery is a wonderful experience and a lot easier than you think, I have listed below some typical questions than I am asked by prospective clients if you have any other questions not covered please feel free to speak directly with David

 

From our initial discussions to completion is typically three to four weeks depending on the complexity of the design and the changes that you would like to make as the design evolves.
There is a £250 commitment deposit to design the ring in 3D and produce a 3D wax ring this amount is deducted from the final price, once the design has been approved and the diamond, diamonds or gemstones have been chosen a further deposit is paid bringing it up to 50% of the cost, the final balance is paid on collection
The honest answer is no you are not, using modern design techniques as I do I am able to offer you your own unique bespoke ring without paying a premium.
TIt is possible for you to provide your own stones for the design, but unless the stones have been left to you and carry a sentimental value I would advise you to come and speak with me first so that I can help and advise you.
However hard you try to to get the the correct finger size and I will help you as much as I can, it is more likely than not to be incorrect, this however is not a problem as I can adjust the ring to the correct size at a later date

I work extensively in Platinum, Gold and Palladium, I also use various finishes depending on the style of the ring that you choose. The most popular finish is polished, but I often use sandblasting and a brushing techniques to apply a matt finish to the jewellery
This is not a problem at all, as I can offer you the wax ring proposal where we can create a unique design together and then instead of finishing it in a precious metal we can set the diamond into a temporary ring along with a 3D wax model of your ring for you to propose with giving you total piece of mind
I design my wedding rings to fit perfectly against the engagement ring and to match the profile. for the gentlemen where possible the profile of their band might match the ladies but in all cases their rings will be bespoke
In following the same design process as the rings it is possible to design matching earrings and a pendant to compliment your engagement ring
I take enormous pride in the quality of my craftsmanship and as such if a problem arises that is not the result of wear and tear or damage, I will put things right without charge. I also offer a yearly sonic clean and checking
Yes of course the ring can be hand engraved adding messages or dates should you wish
I work exclusively by appointment at my London Studios, your office or home at a time to suit you, this allows me to prepare for our meeting and to give you the personal service that you deserve
Payment can be made by credit card, debit card and bank transfers
I will supply a Valuation Certificate for insurance purposes at the time of sale. This will describes the jewellery and stone content, including information on diamond colour and clarity and specific certification details where appropriate. I strongly recommend when you insure your jewellery that you tell your insurance company that any jewellery purchased from YPJ is bespoke and can only be replaced by me, Many household policies have the unpleasant habit of sending you to one of their accredited jewellery partners who will not be able to replace your Bespoke jewellery like for like, so it is worth reading the small print. The fluctuations in metal and stone prices can have an impact on the value of your jewellery so I would recommend reviewing this once a year on inspection
