Custom jewellery is at the heart of Minka Jewels. Having worked in the jewellery trade for over 10 years, Lucy and her team are gifted at helping clients create their own heirloom jewellery. We work closely with each client to ensure the perfect piece is created. Each stone we use is selected for its beauty and brilliance, to be made into jewellery to treasure.
Commissioning a bespoke piece of jewellery is a wonderful and personal experience. Here's how it works:
An initial 20 minute consultation is set up to discuss your ideas and the kind of jewellery you'd like to make. Having an idea of gemstone you would like to use and an idea of budget is very helpful. Is there a style of jewellery that you have in mind? Is there a particular stone that you are drawn to?
Next we would meet in person or virtually for 45 min - 1 hr to show you a selection of gemstones that meet your criteria. Choosing the right stones for the piece will be a very personal experience. Colour and size will play a big part in the deciding process. Do you want something really rare and unique or something practical for every day? We always try and find the best stone for the individual as this is where our expertise lie. We design maximum quality and for each piece to be unique and special. We will source a selection of beautiful gemstones and have a play, laying them out and trying them against your skin tone, sketching out a little design as we go.
3. Sketching & Production
2-3 days after our meeting we will send your a rough sketch and give a final quote. Production time is 5-6 weeks with all pieces hand made by master craftsmen in various workshops across England.
Book a free consultation if you're interested in making a one-of-a-kind ring, necklace, earring, cufflink or any other type of jewellery.
Bridal & Engagement Rings
Minka creates one-of-a-kind pieces for engagements, anniversaries, or any special occasion you may have in your life.
Doesn't matter if it's 1, 5, 10 or 50 years, bespoke anniversary jewellery will send the right message to that special someone.
Have a piece that lost a bit of its luster? We love to reinvent your existing jewellery, should you wish for an update.
