Expert Craftsmanship

We work very closely with some of the best and inspiring ring designers right here in the UK to ensure that once you choose your diamonds, it is mounted into the best possible ring for you. We handpicked each designer because of their wealth of experience and design excellence, each being a complete expert when it comes to creating amazing engagement rings. We've shared a little story below on each designer to give you an insight into who we are working with and most importantly, who will be providing you with your ring.

Hockley Mint

Established in 1953 in Birmingham’s Jewellery quarter, they value great design and are advocates for responsible mining and manufacturing. They create classic, elegant wedding and engagement rings that are beautifully crafted by their design and casting team to create Jewellery of the highest quality.

They work in collaboration with organizations such as Fair Trade, to create a fully transparent supply chain, which ensures fair and safe conditions for all their workers.  

As a UK based manufacturer with the ‘in house’ resource of a vast array of production techniques, they are in a unique position to create anything from a simple 4 claw design to a custom one-off design. Working from CAD or sketch, they always utilize the best possible production techniques for the best possible results. Everything is manufactured in the UK to ensure they are able to maintain quality without delay.

Typically production starts from a sketch which is converted into CAD (computer-aided design) before using innovative technologies to transform the design into a wax casting. Their craftsmen cast, polish and finish rings for you all in-house to the highest standards.
