Meet The Designer
Greatly respected in the industry and widely regarded as a leading designer and acclaimed creative director, Elizabeth has long established relationships with some of the best craftsmen, workshops and stone experts in the industry.
Clients come to Elizabeth to create one-of-a kind engagement rings and bespoke jewellery that are true masterpieces. Some clients wish to surprise their partner with an engagement ring, so they come to Elizabeth for inspiration and together create something truly unique. Others prefer to propose with an especially created design, or a chosen stone and then bring their partner to meet Elizabeth, to collaborate on the design together. Each engagement ring and piece of fine jewellery is unique, handcrafted in Britain by master craftsmen; and each design represents a couple’s own, special story.
Elizabeth works with the very best diamond and stone dealers in the world to source the most exquisite gemstones, based on a client's requirements, budget and brief. We gives life to your desires, combining innovative design, traditional techniques and exceptional craftsmanship - and the client is at the heart of this journey.
If you are based overseas, Elizabeth will be happy to work with you over the phone, Skype and via email.
The Design Journey
Elizabeth’s wealth of experience and collaborative approach when working with clients, ensures the bespoke journey is stimulating, personal and enjoyable and far exceeds their expectations.
The process starts by discussing any ideas the client may already have and Elizabeth puts together mood boards to help visualise their vision for the ring, or jewellery. She then does several drawings for the client to consider before the final design is agreed on. This is then made up as a CAD (computer aided design) so that the client can see their piece from every dimension, before it is made by our workshop. The finished piece is accompanied by a Goldsmith’s Company valuation, professional photography of the commission, a GIA certification and a signed, hand-painted design. Once you have selected the design of your dreams, your bespoke piece is created with the upmost care and finest craftsmanship at our workshop in London.
Over the years Elizabeth has worked on a number of truly remarkable commissions and projects for Her Majesty The Queen, HRH The Prince of Wales and The British Military, and her designs have been worn by influential women including The Duchess of Cambridge and Victoria Beckham.
Elizabeth works with the best goldsmiths, mounters and diamond setters who also serve the Royal Household – combining passion, design innovation and intricate craftsmanship.
