Our custom jewellery designs are crafted in our onsite Wellington workshop where you can see our creative master craftspeople at work, so you are involved throughout the entire process.
To design and craft a unique piece usually takes between 3-6 weeks in total, so let us know if you have a particular date in mind that you require your jewellery for and we will do our best to meet your timeframe.
Initial Design Consultation
Starting your custom bespoke journey is very exciting, but can also be a little bit daunting if you don't know where to start. This is your opportunity to think about your personal style, memories that are important to you and to get inspired by designs you love. Sometimes looking at images online can get your creativity flowing, otherwise our expert jewellery consultants are here to help.
Our expert jewellery consultants listen to your needs, your dreams, and work with you to deliver a tangible piece of jewellery that holds a lifetime of memories. Our consultants have all completed internationally recognised gemmological and jewellery training so have a wealth of knowledge to help you through your journey.
Discuss your design ideas with us in person, via email, phone or virtual consultation. Our custom ring and jewellery design work is highly regarded and we'll do everything we can to provide you with the best experience and outcome.
Review and Refine
The beauty of custom design is that we can work together on your piece of jewellery until you are completely happy with it.
We’ll present you with sketches or models, and with our extensive global network of suppliers, we can offer the best quality and value diamond or gemstone options for your budget. VG Jewellers is committed to using only ethically sourced diamonds from trusted and reputable diamond suppliers.
We use a combination of the latest technologies and traditional craftsmanship to bring your bespoke jewellery design to life. We test and refine the design in our CAD (computer aided design) software and can also 3D print a scale model in a special polymer for you to try on and ensure the design is correct in every detail.
Crafting your piece
Once the design has been perfected, your piece of jewellery is then handcrafted by our award-winning team of jewellers in our Wellington workshop.
From our hands to yours
The value and sentimentality of your jewellery is of great importance to us and our commitment to this is forever. Your piece will come with a certificate of craftsmanship which includes a lifetime free checking and cleaning service on your piece. This service is provided on site at our Wellington store, by our experienced manufacturing jewellers.
We look forward to helping you craft your dream piece and if you're planning on proposing with your new ring, we'd love for you to get in touch afterwards and tell us all about it. After all, we love a good love story.
