Diamonds really are forever! – Custom Jewellery Design

We love working with customers to create really special pieces of jewellery that begin their journey from our design workshop.

Bespoke Engagement Ring

Kirsty contacted us having heard about us from the radio ad as she was looking for someone to make a bespoke engagement ring similar to a design she had seen in a photograph. After contacting a few different places, Kirsty felt the communication and support from staff at Forum Jewellers was outstanding and the perfect place to have her design made.

Original Ring

She particularly liked the ornate layered design using platinum as its base which is the ideal metal for an engagement ring.

When Kirsty came in store, we set about establishing what size diamond.  We then created a computer aided design image to help her visualise what the final piece would look like.

CAD design of the ring

With such intricate detail involved and because she was worried about the size of the ring, Kirsty felt it was really difficult to visualise the ring from the CAD so we arranged for a wax model to be made. This was much more effective in assuring Kirsty that the ring would be the perfect design and fit.

In the meantime, we set about sourcing a diamond that matched Kirsty’s wishlist. Once Kirsty saw the wax model, it was an easy decision for her to give the go ahead for the ring to be made so the diamond was purchased and the designer began to create this truly beautiful piece.

In total, there are 139 diamonds: 1 x 6mm in the centre, 2 x 1.4mm on the petals, 12 x 1.25mm and 124 x 0.85mm that decorate the petals and shoulders. There’s a very good reason they say diamonds are a girl’s best friend! Take a look at the sparkle on this beauty.

When we presented the ring to Kirsty, she was speechless! We hope she has a lifetime of happiness wearing it.

She says:

We are so pleased that we went to Forum Jewellers for our engagement ring. The support and constant communication really made the process enjoyable. Angie was wonderful. She made sure all of my wishes were made clear and gave me an overview of what they can do at the start. After this, Helen was absolutely fantastic and really made my experience perfect. She helped keep me up to date and always responded within half an hour of my queries. I know that my excitement was almost matched in Helen. We both became emotionally invested and excited about the arrival of the ring 😊. On the morning the ring arrived, Helen called me and it was immediate excitement, we were able to go down and collect within the hour. The sparkle and beauty of the ring was so immediate and was exactly how we wanted it. Having petite hands, it can be difficult to know what will suit, but this ring just looks perfect. We would like to thank Forum Jewellers for everything they did and delivering the ring with such a lovely bag of surprises too. As soon as we left the store, my partner and I said we will definitely have them create our bespoke wedding rings too. Hopefully we will see you again soon. Definitely 5 diamond service. Thank you Kirsty and Sam xx
