Part 1 - Understanding Your Unique Style

Creating the perfect piece of jewellery is an art form, and as the owner of RK Jewellery Designs, it's a challenge that I'm always excited to take on. Every customer is unique, with their own personal style and vision for the perfect piece of jewellery. My job is to get inside your mind and understand what you're looking for, through a process of consultation and collaboration. 

One of the first things I always ask is about your budget, not to use as much of it as possible, but to help guide you towards options that will give you the most value for your money. Whether you're working within a tight budget or not, the process of interpretation is always a challenge. I love it when customers bring in sketches, images, or other creative ideas to help build a profile of their tastes and preferences. 

Once I have a sense of what you're looking for, the real work begins. I combine my own creative vision and technical expertise with your unique style and ideas to create a piece of jewellery that is truly one-of-a-kind. I pay close attention to small details and aim to create pieces that are built to last, designed to be worn and cherished for years to come. 

Part 2 - Bringing Your Vision to Life

Once we've had our consultation and discussed your budget and preferences, I start the design process by creating a digital image, or render, of your piece of jewellery. This will be photo-realistic, giving you a sense of what the finished product will look like. If it's not quite what you imagined, don't worry - we'll work together to make small adjustments until you're completely happy with the design. 

From there, I'll produce a 3D model in plastic for you to try on and see how you feel about the design in real life. This helps you to feel confident about your choices and make any necessary tweaks before the final product is produced. Whether you're trying on the model in my workshop or having it sent to you by post, I'm always available to answer any questions or concerns you may have. 

Part 3 - Crafting Your Unique Piece

The final step in the process is crafting your unique piece of jewellery. I work with a small team of craftsmen from Hatton Garden, all of whom are experts in their fields. We take great pride in our work and pay close attention to every detail, from casting and setting to sourcing the perfect stones and finishing touches. 

Once your piece of jewellery is complete, it will be hallmarked by the London assay office and boxed for safekeeping. We'll also arrange for an independent third party to provide an insurance valuation, giving you peace of mind and ensuring that you have all the information you need to protect your investment. 

Creating a one-of-a-kind piece of jewellery is truly a labour of love, and it's a privilege to be able to work with customers to bring their unique visions to life. If you're interested in creating something truly special, please don't hesitate to give me a call on 07496 003 988. I'd be happy to discuss your ideas and help guide you towards creating the perfect piece of jewellery for you or your loved one.
