Four days post the 2017 studio sale we are still selling as people call and email the studio Thursday, Dec 14 2017 

We have experienced our ‘best’ ever studio sale this year – in fact, this year I have only had 5 postal invites returned from our snail mail commissioner’s report. It does show how dedicated our customers are . . . it does also reflect on our seriously considered price points. It also shows that contemporary wearable design, generous amounts of high carat metal and our championing of real gems sets us apart from the easy-to-buy disposable high street market.

MERRY CHRISTMAS & A SAFE HOLIDAY SEASON . . .

Studio closes on the 20th December and we will reopen around the end of February 2018.

Anything your heart desires will come to you”

Our first commissioned ‘Stargazer’ ring for Jesse Roebuck: Medallion Ring © Bh ‘Stargazer’ style Diamond, cape colour rose cut SI 1=0.68ct graver set, solid two part fused 18ct yellow Gold. 

“When a star is born
They possess a gift or two
One of them is this
They have the power to make a wish come true
When you wish upon a star
Makes no difference who you are
Anything your heart desires will come to you
If your heart is in your dream
No request is too extreme
When you wish upon a star
As dreamers do
Fate is kind
She brings to those who love
The sweet fulfillment of their secret longing
Like a bolt out of the blue
Fate steps in and sees you through
When you wish upon a star
Your dreams come true
When you wish upon a star
Makes no difference who you are
Anything your heart desires will come to you
If your heart is in your dream
No request is too extreme
When you wish upon a star
As dreamers do
Fate is kind
She brings to those who love
The sweet fulfillment of their secret longing
Like a bolt out of the blue
Fate steps in and sees you through
When you wish upon a star
Your dreams come true”
