Custom Bespoke Jewellery Design
Custom Bespoke Jewellery Design

The Village Goldsmith is an international award-winning jewellery designer store that prides itself on design, innovation and dedication to quality and service. Our custom jewellery design service is inspired by your stories and emotions. 

Our custom jewellery designs are crafted in our onsite Wellington workshop where you can see our creative master craftspeople at work, so you are involved in the creation and service of your dream jewellery piece. 

To design and craft a unique piece usually takes between 3-6 weeks in total, so let us know if you have a particular date in mind that you require your jewellery for and we will do our best to meet your timeframe. 

What happens in the custom jewellery design process?

We listen to your needs, your dreams, and work with you to deliver a tangible piece of jewellery that not only tells the story of how it came to be and what it represents, but also holds a lifetime of memories as your relationships continue to evolve.

Discuss your design ideas with us in person, via email, phone or virtual consultation. A custom design is truly that - it starts with your unique ideas and vision for your special piece. Our custom ring and jewellery design work is highly regarded and it is recommended that you contact us to make an appointment.

The beauty of custom design is that we can work together on your piece of jewellery to ensure you are completely happy with it. We’ll present you with sketches or models, and with our extensive global network of suppliers, we can offer the best quality and value diamond or gemstone options for your budget. The Village Goldsmith is committed to using only ethically sourced diamonds from trusted and reputable diamond suppliers.

At The Village Goldsmith, we use a combination of the latest technologies and traditional craftsmanship to bring your bespoke jewellery design to life. We test and refine the design in our CAD software and we can then print a 3D scale model in a special polymer using our 3D printing technology to ensure the design is correct in every detail.

Your piece of jewellery is then handcrafted by our experienced and award-winning team of jewellers in our Wellington workshop who take immense pride in their work.

You might be asking "is custom jewellery more expensive?"

At The Village Goldsmith, we work hard to ensure our jewellery is beautifully designed and crafted, as well as being of exceptional quality and value. People often assume that bespoke jewellery is more expensive than off-the-shelf but when you understand how we operate, you will find that is not the case. Read more here about how we can deliver exceptional value for our custom designed jewellery pieces.
