Bespoke Design


One-off Commissions Or Bespoke Designs

All Lance James Jewellers are highly skilled at interpreting what an individual wants and can create a completely unique piece just for you. 

We can work in a number of ways:


Some people love the idea of a completely original hand made piece of jewellery and our jewellery designers are happy to help them create a completely unique item. Bespoke does not have to be just about engagement rings; one couple created wedding gifts for each other incorporating rock they collected whilst climbing Mt Kilimanjaro!  

Although some of our clients have a clear vision of a design, this isn't essential so don't let this put you off. Our Jewellery Designers will guide you through each stage of the design process. 

Once we have a clear idea of the kind of piece and style you are looking for, we will sketch 3 or 4 designs to share with you. Guided by your preferences and price point, we can help tailor the design to your requirements. 

Once  you have signed off the final design and specifications of the item, you will be required to make a 50% deposit so that work can commence. Your unique piece of jewellery will be ready within five weeks. 

Please call or visit one of our stores for more information. Alternatively, you can email us at

In fact, our stores have a viewing window, from the main retail space into the workshop so that our customers can witness traditional skills in practice.
