Bespoke Jewellery by David Law of London
I am a Contemporary Jewellery Designer who has worked as a jewellery designer and manufacturer in Hatton Garden since 1976.
I specialise in the design and place a lot of passion behind the making of a custom ring, my extensive knowledge in both diamonds and gemstones means you know you're in the right hands when choosing that perfect piece for yourself or your partner. I am all about service, unique and personal helping you to find exactly what you want and at a price that suits.
For those who were born in the month of February the Amethyst is the traditional birthstone.
Did you know the Gregorian calendar has poems matching each month with its birthstone, and for you lovely people born in the month of February here it is
“The February-born shall find Sincerity and peace of mind, Freedom from passion and from care, If they an amethyst will wear”
The amethyst has offered such beliefs in its offering from stability, peace, balance, courage, inner strength, sincerity and a calm disposition. Now whether you believe all the myths or not the amethyst comes in many shades from a light pinkish violet through to a deep purple and makes a really great stone to design a jewellery piece around.
Have you ever considered using such a stone for your jewellery? If not get in touch and let’s find out together what we can achieve.
I am going to start my 2013 blogging season off with rant about my very own industry.
If you read the following headline “Platinum jewellery shines at the star-studded Golden Globes 2013”, like me you expect to see lots of exquisite photos of the celebs dressed in style and accompanied by some lush jewels? Well if you did you would be extremely disappointed, for example did you see the dress and Jewels Jennifer was wearing? – dress, yes but Jewels, no…..and why? Because the overall look was stunning.
Jennifer Lopez wears a Zuhair Murad gown, Le Vian 18K strawberry gold earrings with vanilla diamonds, a Le Vian 14K strawberry gold flower ring with vanilla and chocolate diamonds and two styles of Le Vian 14K honey gold rings with vanilla and chocolate diamonds, a sheer delight to see
All I can tell you with certainty is our fabulous stars were wearing a lot of platinum diamond jewellery from Tiffany, Chopard and Bulgari to name just a few. What’s upsetting is no images to back the story up and for me that is a great shame, If it’s ok for Stella McCartney to show off her latest creation why not Tiffany?
Jewellery is fashion and must play a key part, from the catwalk to the red carpet and beyond. The public want to see, want to know and want to following trends from their favourite celebrities. It’s time for the jewellery trade to stand up, wake up and realize that we are part of the fashion world, a big part.
With all of this talk, it inspired me to design my own piece for you to see and hope to give you ideas on how you would like your ring made but not at Tiffany prices, Come say hello and lets chat
In conclusion for 2012. I wanted to take this opportunity of thanking all my existing and new customers for believing in me and my exciting approach to designing bespoke jewellery, making this my best year ever.
It only goes to prove that even in difficult times, if you bring something new to the table there can be success story in the making.
During 2013 I fully intend to build on this success by introducing further innovative ideas to enhance the jewellery designing experience for you and your partner.
For now, it’s time to raise a glass and to wish you all Happy Holidays and a Healthy New Year to come
Look forward to seeing you all again in 2013
From Fabergé to Cartier, the world’s greatest jewellery designers have always preferred working with platinum, and the reason for this, well let’s see……
Platinum is a pure naturally white precious metal that will never fade or tarnish, and it is hypoallergenic making it ideal for those with sensitive skin. It’s eternal, with everlasting radiance, has unequalled durability, protective and resistance to wear making which makes you design last a lifetime no matter what you do for a living.
It has been known not to change shape so precious stones are held firmly and securely. The density of platinum makes it more durable than other jewellery metals. Considered rare for many reasons and a treasure coveted by influential individuals for centuries.
Platinum will add to the exclusivity of your bespoke jewellery, a statement of individuality, and desired by those in the know. Also only found in very few places around the world, making it 30 times more rare than gold.
With all the reasons above, maybe it’s worth a thought when designing your piece, as it’s not always “gold” that makes the heart flutter, image the possibilities you have with Platinum and the durability of the piece you design for your loved one
As a bespoke designer, I fully endorse using platinum in my designs unlike gold, no longer comes at a price premium
And we are off, Christmas is around the corner and the shops are piled high with merchandise, the only thing that appears to be missing is the foot fall.
Let’s see why….
We have just passed mega Monday the busiest day for buying gifts over the Internet (The equivalent to Cyber Monday in the USA) so that could be part of the reason for the missing foot fall, taking a closer look at the data, internet sales even with the reported large increases only account for 10% of all retail sales, so what’s actually happening.
The high street stores holding mega sales all year round, reported weak sales and consumers holding off until the last minute hoping that the stores will drop their prices even further may well have caused a spiral effect in the market place today.
but will you find the items discounted that you really want? I am not so sure.
Spend might be up, but money is clearly tighter than it has been for many years, and the pressure mounts when you have to find the perfect gift, like so many Gift Vouchers have become ever popular easy to choose, budget set and everyone is happy, or are they?
The only trouble with this option is that for me is seems so impersonal and can be deemed as showing a lack of effort in seeking gift for your loved one.
For me, I would ask “Have you thought about creating your own bespoke piece of jewellery”. And I can image your first thought would be possibly yes but I can't afford it and secondly they might hate what I choose.
What if I said I had the perfect solution to getting that gift now, all wrapped up and ready for Christmas day.
The process is a simple one, together we can design the perfect jewellery gift, from diamond, gemstone or precious metal. Your choice of earrings, pendants, cufflinks, accessories and of course rings. But here is the clever part instead of being unsure we would have created a design together for you to give as a gift in a stunning wax form that is so realistic that they will be tempted to wear it and take the next step to creating it.
This way the risk is taken away, your intended will know that you truly love them and should they want to make any changes to the design it will not be an issue but a wonderful journey that will ultimately form the perfect gift that has come from you.
What can be innovative than that?
Don’t forget that your design will be made to your budget and any later changes to the design will be free
So what you waiting for get in touch today and give your loved one a truly personal gift that no one else will have because I never repeat a unique design that I have created
With the holiday season fast upon us, we are all looking to find that perfect gift for our loved ones and for some its possibly having to spend less money than last year to find it, well I would love to throw a suggestion into the ring (excuse the pun).
We all have old bits of jewellery gathering dust in our draws, from only one half of an earring or cufflink, to heir looms left to us by loved ones. chances are we would never wear again either. Have you ever considered turning them into new pieces of bespoke jewellery?, it’s a great option that can save you a ton of money and offers an innovative way of giving your loved on a unique gift
So, this is how easy it can be. Simply gather up your old pieces and pop along and say hello for a free consultation, I can see what you have, then take you on a really exciting and rewarding design journey that will ultimately end up in a very unique bespoke piece of jewellery.
The possibilities are endless, just like our imaginations and together we can be creative and all within budget at the same time. .
So if your in the mood to try something a little outside of the box, then come say hello and see how we can make your Christmas sparkle .

Well the Christmas lights in Oxford Street are live, and its official the countdown to Christmas is well and truly under way
The holiday season has always been the season of giving and receiving presents and also traditionally a very popular time to ask the big question.
I have spoken to many clients who have proposed with that every important ring under the tree, on top of a mountain with the winter sun beating down knee deep in snow, on a hot Caribbean beach or as Big Ben strikes 12 on New Year's Eve, the possibilities and ideas are endless at this time of year you can see why it is so popular.
So how do you choose the ideal ring for the holiday season
2012 has seen the biggest change in trends that I can ever remember, the solitaire ring is no longer “cool”, and coloured gemstones are being reintroduced into the design process, all in all this makes it a great time to be a designer.
There is also one final major change in the world of trends, This is “where”. where what?, I hear you say – well where will you buy the ring. The high street stores are failing fast and the sparkle is on a dimmer switch and the Online stores are just pages and pages of crammed images and slashed prices and hours are spent wasting time trying hard to find what your after.
Many of my clients come with their own ideas as a starting point, these tend to come from little hints that their partner has given them or from the partners best friend.
Either way we will chat it all through and come up with the perfect solution that works for you and a design that truly makes the idea come alive.
If your after something alternative to the solitaire and innovative then your options are endless, allow me to tell you about how I can take you through the bespoke journey from the idea to a concept that is so beautiful and exciting.
I will help you design the perfect ring and choose your ideal diamond, we will follow the path of designing the ring first in 3D and then by producing a stunning 3D wax model for you to enjoy. But it doesn’t end here, this is where things get really exciting, instead of completing the ring from the wax as I would normally do I will set your chosen diamond into a temporary ring and you will present that and the wax ring you have taken the time to design with me to your fiancée in a beautiful silk box. That’s innovation in a box and a present your partner will never expect and so the journey begins again….
This way you will have the best of both worlds of designing a truly unique ring and without the need of picking a ring off the shelf and at the same time allowing your fiancée to become part of the design process whilst having a ring to wear.
So there you have it a “innovative bespoke” option, just another cool offering from David Law
Your Personal Jeweller
I was well aware just from all the social media accounts I have created over the years that there are many David Law's in this world. But recently, one evening I actually met another David Law.
Then this lovely follow up email to me David Law from him, David Law
"Hello David, I would love to get an engagement ring from you because my name is also David Law"
Now, not only have I met a David Law I now have him as a client
part two of how this story unfolds, coming soon – but what fun
I have made many bespoke eternity rings over the years adding blue stones for a boy, pink for girl and I have designed them to match engagement and wedding rings.
But this was a first, I was asked to design aneternity ring incorporating 25 diamonds to celebrate 25 years of marriage which I have to say I thought was rather cool and certainly unique.
Come take a look at the ring on Face Book http://www.facebook.com/yourpersonaljeweller
