“We are passionate about our jewellery & hope you take as much pleasure from our collections as we do.”
BEHIND THE SCENES
Our workshop in Clapham is the creative hub where our jewellery collections are formed, from concept to completion.
It's here that each piece of jewellery is lovingly handcrafted by our team of expert jewellers, who are renowned in the jewellery industry for their trusted quality, expert knowledge and outstanding service.
Our collections take inspiration from many forms - from the wonders of nature, our passion for travel, the richness of far-away cultures and even cherished childhood memories.
THE DESIGN PROCESS
Our original designs are individually hand carved from solid sterling silver by Dan. A real labour of love, each new collection can sometimes take years to come together as we develop our ideas and refine the final design details.
Each piece is studied meticulously with our attention focused on the elements that make each collection distinctly recognisable as Dower & Hall. Our signature dotty and hammered finishes transform even the simplest of shapes with a beautiful texture that catches the light.
Once a collection is ready, Dan's sterling silver 'master' designs are sent to our casting company for production.
INSIDE THE WORKSHOP
Dan's ‘master’ designs are cast in sterling silver or solid gold using the ‘lost wax casting’ technique.
This ancient method dates back to the 3rd century BC and sees molten metal poured into moulds of our master designs to create ‘castings’ which will be in a raw, unfinished state.
Our jewellery is returned from our casting company in impressive tree-like structures before each item is cut off and prepared by our team.
INSIDE THE WORKSHOP
AT THE BENCH
Our skilled jewellers perfect each casting by hand through a variety of techniques including soldering, sizing, texturing, polishing, stone-setting and stringing.
Once complete, the finished jewellery is sent to the Birmingham Assay Office to be hallmarked to UK standards.
OUR COMMITMENT TO
As a company that designs and produces all of it’s own jewellery, we are always looking at ways we can become more and more sustainable to serve a better deal for our planet.
Using heritage, craft techniques alongside new technology, we have always used recycled silver and gold metal for our jewellery. This recycling saves on waste, is better for the environment, reduces water usage and cuts down on CO2 emissions.
Our gemstones and diamonds are ethically sourced, whilst pearls themselves insist on a clean, pollution-free environment to live and grow their beautiful lustre.
OUR BRAND NEW
To make your purchase even more special, you can choose to have your jewellery packaged in one of our branded reusable soft-touch travel pouches or a ribboned gift box.
Our jewellery is shipped in recyclable branded outer boxes and all of our stationary is made from recycled paper.
