Step 1 - Discovery & Inspiration

Discovery & Inspiration Consultation – we’ll help you explore the options and discover styles, materials and ideas that you’ll love. We love to do this at our St Albans showroom and workshop where we can meet you face to face and show you examples of our designs and stones – and you may even have your own jewellery, pictures or sketches that you want to share with us. Don’t worry if you can’t make it to our showroom - we can always carry out the initial consultation over the phone or on a video call.
