The big question is, how would one go about choosing a bespoke jewellery designer? A lot of people design jewellery – here are some. How do you choose the right person for the job?

One good way is to look at the jewellery pieces that the designer has already produced. Every jewellery designers has their own signature style. By just looking at the style of a piece of jewellery, you can tell if it is the work of a designer that you might like. Look for one who has a style that impresses you, a style in which you would like your piece of jewellery to fashion after.

Going for a popular jewellery designer with a recognisable name will be on the costly side, but at least you know that you will be getting something with a signature style. The jewellery of famous designers may go up in value over time if the designer’s work is highly sought after. So, if the cost makes you hesitate, think of it as an investment.

If the price range is really out of your budget, you can look for talented, but lesser known designers who can design a piece for you at a lower cost. You would not be getting a famous designer name, but it would not break the bank either.

Once you have identified the potential designer of your jewellery, make an appointment to talk about the jewellery that you would like the designer to make. Talk about the occasion on which you will wear the jewellery. Describe the type of gemstones or precious metal that you would like to use. It is a good idea to find a jeweller who is also qualified to advice on diamonds and in gemology. Indicate the size that you need. The designer will make sketches of the piece that will incorporate all the features that you have specified, as you are describing it. As you see your design evolve, provide as much feedback as possible so the designer can modify the sketch until the design is exactly what you want.

After a design is chosen, there should be an agreement as to when the jewellery should be finished. If you need the jewellery by a certain date, be sure to clarify that from the start so there will be no misunderstanding of the expectations.
