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 engagement ring. We will discuss your initial ideas, price range, precious metals, gemstones and inspirations for your engagement ring 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 diamond
With a network of over 100,000 GIA certificated diamonds. We’re confident that we will find the right diamond for you within your price range. We only sell GIA certificated diamonds. This means we can guarantee you, high quality, conflict free diamonds. All our stones will have a colour grade between D - I, clarity between IF - SI1, with excellent to good cut. Your jeweller will be there to explain every aspect of buying a diamond. You will also learn how to read a diamond report and view diamonds with a diamond loop.
Step 4 place your order
When you’re 100% happy with your design, diamond and price. You will then be ready to place your order. We require a 10% deposit before we make your engagement ring and balance is not due until you collect your finished ring. 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 ring will be ready to collect within three weeks.
Step 5 make
At this point your design is ready to be made into your engagement ring. Over the next three weeks, your ring 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 ring 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 ring 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.
why bobby white
Bobby White is an award-winning jewellery designer and master craftsman. Back in 1999 Bobby started training under a diamond mounter for six years before becoming a master of fine jewellery making by hand
A Bobby White engagement ring is made in London, therefore when you visit, you visit our workshop, not a showroom or shop. The workshop is the heart of any true jewellery company. The workshop stands for craftsmanship and creativity.
In today’s world, there’re more jewellers than ever before however the English jewellery workshop is in decline. Many of these jewellers talk about bespoke, handmade rings and skilled craftsman, however you never see past the salesman.
The truth, many jewellery companies do not own a workshop, do not have the knowledge or skills to create an engagement ring by hand. They rely on poorly pre-made ring castings from abroad which never fit your diamond perfectly. Just like an off the peg suit will never fit like a bespoke suit made to your body. The diamond and the ring mount have the same relationship.
At Bobby White we make engagement rings with real craftsman in a real London workshop. Make an appointment with us. You will visit our workshop at the Goldsmiths Centre.
