LET US TRANSLATE YOUR STORY INTO A UNIQUE PIECE OF JEWELLERY
Our bespoke design service allows you to participate in creating a piece of jewellery inspired by your own personal story - a piece that is completely yours. Whether you’re shopping for yourself or planning a surprise proposal, become part of a unique collaboration as The Rock Hound takes you on an enthralling journey.
The first step is to arrange a one-to-one consultation at our East London HQ. Here you'll be able to meet our designer Susi in a relaxed environment and talk through your ideas, inspiration and budget.
A bespoke design is a chance to express your individuality. You'll get a say on every detail, from the cut or shape of the stone and setting to the design of the band or adding unique details. Making those decisions may seem daunting, but don't worry - we're here to guide you though all those choices.
Perhaps you already have a piece of jewellery and want to give it a special touch? Why not personalise your piece with an engraving or be bold and investigate the possibilities of nano-ceramic plating? See our RE-WORK section below for more details.
After your consultation, Susi will translate your ideas into various design sketches and source any gems you require. These sketches will help give a clear idea of your finished piece so you can tweak the design, if necessary. We encourage you to take your time reviewing the designs and to give us honest feedback so that we can get the design just right.
Once you've made the final decision, you'll be presented with a to-scale hand-painted gouache of your chosen design. This beautiful piece of artwork will really help bring your design to life so you can get a feel for the finished piece. Only when you're totally happy with your design does the actual creation process begin.
The typical time frame is 6-8 weeks, although in special circumstances we may be able to accommodate a tighter work schedule. Factors such as sourcing rare gemstones and materials may prolong the process but we are more than happy to discuss and come to an agreement on this during your consultation.
Upon completion, we'll arrange a day for you to come in and collect your beautiful piece of jewellery.

Why not rejuvenate an old ring with a sexy flash of colour or replace a worn-out stone with a shiny, ethically sourced one?
