prices from £950
3 weeks to complete
Step 1 meet the designer
First you will meet Bobby White or one of his jewellers for a consultation, this can be done at our workshop in London. On your consultation, you will learn more about what we do at Bobby White and the process of creating a bespoke piece of jewellery. We will discuss your initial ideas, price range, precious metals, gemstones and inspirations for your design.
Step 2 the design
Designs and drawings will be put together from the ideas and inspirations. We will present to you the designs on your next visit or over email. Your jeweller will go into more detail with suggestions of metals and gemstones that work with your design.
Step 3 choose your stones
If you're using gemstones within your design, this is the stage where you will view the stones. We stock all precious and semiprecious stones from 0.01 carat up to 15.00 carat and every shape and colour. We will work with you to find the perfect stones for your design and price range. Your jeweller will be there to explain every aspect of buying a stone.
Step 4 place your order
When you’re 100% happy with your design, you will then be ready to place your order. We require a 10% deposit upfront and the balance is not due until you collect your finished piece. If you’re spreading the costs over 4 years, we will help you complete the application which takes around five minutes. Once the order is placed your piece will be ready to collect within three weeks.
Step 5 make
At this point your design is ready to be made. Over the next three weeks, your bespoke item will be worked on in London by three master craftsmen. The mounter, the setter and the polisher. All the master craftsman that will work on your piece would have gone through a five-year apprenticeship in their craft before they’re allowed to work on a piece by Bobby White. At Bobby White, we never use castings or off the shelf mounts. Your bespoke piece will be completely handmade, a very rare luxury in today’s world of jewellery making.
Step 6 the reveal
Maybe the most exciting step of them all. For the first time, you will see and hold the finished piece. Your ring will then be wrapped in Bobby White branded packaging. Along with your finished engagement ring you will find your GIA diamond report and valuation for insurance. Now the only job left! Is the proposal, good luck.
