Jewellery Commissions by Sennen Jewellery
Cornish Jewellery Design
What is a Jewellery Commission?
Commissioning a piece of Cornish Jewellery means that you have the opportunity to help to design your piece of bespoke jewellery.
Why Choose Sennen Jewellery for your Jewellery Commision?
From the choice of metal to the style of the jewellery, you can work with our in house jewellery designer to create a Cornish jewellery design that is very personal and unique.
Cornish Engagement rings and Cornish Wedding rings are popular choices for a bespoke piece, and we can also remodel vintage jewellery to your specification. Where possible we will melt down and rework customer's existing precious metal to retain the link with the past.
Whether you want a unique engagement ring or to remodel a family heirloom, the bespoke experience guarantees you a completely unique piece of jewellery, often for a comparable price to “off the shelf” jewellery.
What is the process in creating a Jewellery Commission?
1. Get in Touch
The first step is to have an email correspondence with our in house designer who will guide you through the process. There is no charge for a design consultation or initial sketched ideas.
2. The Initial Consultation
In the initial consultation we will discuss ideas, materials and budget. This can be by email, over the phone or in person. Before your consultation, it is a good idea to think about your requirements. This might include:
- What Metal you would like (Sterling Silver, 9ct Gold, 18ct Gold, Platinum, Cornish Tin)
- What stones you would like (Diamonds or Gemstones including Cornish sourced gemstones)
Materials are always sourced from suppliers guaranteeing an ethical and non-conflict product.
- Ring size or other dimensions
- An approximate budget
- Deadline if applicable
3. Initial Sketches
We can then present you with hand drawn sketches so that you can visualise your designs. This is followed by a detailed design sketch and a quote.
Depending on the piece and the work involved a deposit of 50%-100% may be required to proceed.
5. The Jewellery is handmade to your Requirements
Once the design is approved by you we will begin to hand craft your item. The entire process takes between two and eight weeks depending on the complexity of the design. When completed, we will photograph and then post your Custom jewellery via a tracked service or alternatively you may collect it from us.
