Handcrafted Jewellery Manufacturing
All our jewellery is handcrafted by Lee Dawson, manufacturing Goldsmith and owner, onsite at our workshop based in Garforth, Leeds. Our aim is to offer a positive experience and deliver excellent pieces of top quality jewellery to our clients.
Diamond and Gem Stone Supplier
Over the years of dealing with top industry diamond and gemstone suppliers, we are confident in the quality of the stones we are able to secure and our long standing relationships with our suppliers enables us to offer the best possible prices. We are also able to supply laboratory grown, sustainable diamonds that are becoming popular due to the eco friendliness and low impact to the environment.
A large part of our manufacturing is remodelling sentimental or pre-loved jewellery into pieces that are modern or better suited to individual requirements. Lee will guide you on the best options when it comes to remodelling your jewellery.
Lee has been repairing jewellery since he was an apprentice 25 years ago. He can repair almost anything from clasps, broken chains, bent rings, re-tipping of claws, restoring antique jewellery, ring sizing and is also an experienced diamond setter, so your jewellery will never have to leave to workshop.
We completely understand that you may have additional queries prior to working with a manufacturing jeweller.
We have answered some questions we get on a regular basis, however if you have any other queries please feel free to email us or call us and we’ll get back to you as soon as possible.
Not necessarily. Retailers generally buy their jewellery from a manufacturer and then add on a markup. To their price. When dealing with a manufacturer, you’ll not only get exclusive handmade jewellery, you also will not be charged manufacturing prices.
In our business you will receive a manufacturing guarantee. If we sell you a product that is flawed from the start, and this defect comes to light within 4-6 weeks of purchasing the item, then we will repair or replace the item free of charge.
Platinum jewellery works out to be more expensive, even though the cost per gram is currently the same as gold (cost varies according to commodity pricing), you generally need more platinum when making and item because it is denser than gold.
Overall, lab grown stones share the same physical and chemical properties as natural diamonds. Lab grown diamonds are real diamonds that last forever but are an estimated 30% less expensive than mined diamonds. Overall, neither diamond is ‘better.’ They are not in competition with one another.
When you see a yellowish tint in your white gold jewellery, it’s not because of poor quality. Instead, you see the inner layer of gold alloy under the rhodium plating. Because rhodium is applied in such a thin layer, usually only a few microns thick, it can wear off over time.
