Over the past 20 years our personal service for exceptional bespoke jewellery design has helped to establish our brand name amongst the best in jewellery design. We utilise the best home-grown talent to ensure jewellery from our London studio receives the most outstanding attention and care, right from conception through to completion.
Pay a visit to either of our stores, Spitalfields or Glasgow, and ask one of our friendly, knowledgeable team to help you. They can also organise a personal appointment with Dan Dower. It is the perfect opportunity to sit back, relax, enjoy our atmosphere and discuss your jewellery dreams! From there Dan will make sketches, talk about possible ideas, what metals and stones to use and help you create something truly unique. With every commission we do, we ensure it incorporates our signature Dower & Hall style that our customers have come to adore.
Even as child, Dan was always fascinated by small tactile treasures that could be held in the hand and turned over to appreciate its perfection from every angle - be it a pebble, a model car, leaf or a gem. Every piece of jewellery he creates is regarded as a precious tactile object, and this ethos has been an integral part of the design process from the beginning.
The Dower & Hall difference is mostly distinguished in the simple sculptural shapes and refined attention to detail which means that every piece is considered from every angle, with the inside and back as important as the front.
The great thing about dealing with us directly is that you don’t have to be involved with any third parties. This means there are no additional ‘hidden’ costs and whilst your jewellery will be hand-made and be finished to the highest standard – it won’t cost you the earth!
1. Produce photo-realistic images using a 3D computer design program – this is perfect for finalising design details without committing to expensive precious metals at an early stage.
2. Source stones for you to view. This gives you the luxury of picking your own stone, a fantastic way to add another personal touch!
3. Produce a ‘Mock-Up’ in sterling silver of the final design – checking you are happy with the proportions before going ahead. A design fee may be charged but this is usually redeemable against the cost of the final piece.
4. Once your design has been finalised it will be made by Dan and our expert team of jewellers. We pay every attention to detail, making sure you only receive the best.
A time frame for your bespoke commission will be given in the early stages of the process and during production we will always invite you back to try it for size before setting any stones.
On completion you will be provided with a professional valuation including a digital photograph for your insurance company. Your beautiful bespoke jewellery will be ready to be wear immediately, and you can have peace of mind knowing that we will be able to maintain its beauty with our TLC service for years to come.
The bespoke process opens up a whole world of design opportunities. Whether you would like to tailor one of our signature styles to suit your tastes, or something completely brand new – together, we can make whatever your heart desires.
