It starts with a private consultation. While sipping champagne in our luxury boutique, you’ll work directly with Matthew to transform the jewels you imagine – or those you can’t quite fathom – onto paper.
You’ll discuss and select a design, gemstones, shape, cut and personal touches, working together to finesse the perfect sketch.
Every piece of custom made jewellery is handcrafted by Matthew; each gem individually sourced, polished and placed, with its own story to tell. You’ll be kept up to date every step of the way.
The final masterpiece will be presented alongside original sketches, certificates, and photographs of your piece being designed in store.
