The Process

It starts with a private consultation. While sipping champagne in our luxury boutique, you’ll work with Matthew Ely to remodel old family gemstones and heirlooms into personalised, modern jewellery.

Together, you’ll brainstorm and select a design and style, blending original stones and settings with contemporary trends and individual flair. Matthew will put pen to paper, finessing a detailed sketch of your ideal recreation; a brand-new family heirloom that’s custom made for you.

Every Matthew Ely jewellery restoration is handcrafted by Matthew in-store. The final piece will be presented alongside original sketches, certificates, and photographs of your jewellery being created.


Case Study:
7 Pieces for 7 Nieces

It was in late 2020 that Matthew embarked on one of his most exciting jewellery restorations to date.

The challenge: to remodel one grandmother’s jewels into not one, but seven modern classics. These redesigned heirlooms would be high-end statement pieces, simultaneously wearable and perfectly matched to the individual personalities of their new owners.

A gift – or seven – from one very generous uncle to his seven nieces, creating new family heirlooms from his mother’s old gems, dating back to the 1920s.
