How to commission your piece of jewellery
It all starts with a relaxed no obligation conversation in the Design House, digital consultation online or a chat on the telephone. Some clients have a very clear idea of what they would like, while others like to be guided through options and possibly use some of Garrett’s existing styles as a starting point. Whatever the starting point is this initial chat allows us to explore the endless possibilities to create the ideal piece for the occasion in mind and working within your budget.
After the initial conversation we will take some time to think about your brief and come up with some suggestions as to how the piece might take shape. Clients often find they have ideas post the initial consultation and can contact us to make amendments to the idea as well. Garrett will draw up some sketches and send on to ensure that you are happy that the design in going in the right direction. An indicative quote will be provided at this stage.
A final sketch of the design and price will be discussed by appointment in person or sent to the client for final sign off. If the design includes a gemstone there is the option to visit the store to select the stone for the piece. A deposit of 20% is requested at this stage and the balance is payable on collection. We also offer a facility to accept payments in stages.
Once the design is agreed we will agree a timeframe for delivery we will commence to create the piece and will keep you up to date with progress via images and emails.
The lead time for bespoke orders is generally 5-6 weeks depending on the complexity of the piece and when your individual piece is ready we will contact you to arrange collection or delivery by courier to your required location.
