Loose gemstones for commissions: black opal, rubellite tourmaline, White cliffs black opal, sapphire, petrol blue trapezoid tourmaline, citrine, alexandrite

Throughout the year we visit stone dealers in search of new gemstones for our collection. Beautiful stones are never with us for long; they are swiftly made up into bespoke commissions for clients or one-of-a-kind designs for our collection. A beautifully cut gemstone has an almost magical appeal that is hard to resist. Many of our designs are inspired by stones; from bespoke pendants set with large fancy-cut coloured gemstones to our hand-carved Arris rings, which are each individually carved from wax to suit a particular gemstone.

Clients looking to commission a bespoke piece of jewellery can choose from a wide selection of diamonds and coloured gems. We constantly add new stones to the collection. These are sourced from a handful of trusted stone dealers, including some of Europe’s finest stonecutters. A skilful gem cutter will enhance the best qualities of a stone and bring out its colour and sparkle.
