DESIGN PROCESS

Our bespoke design process allows you to be involved in every step of creating your one of a kind piece. The unique journey begins with inspiration and an idea. We work from rough sketches of jewellery, photos or adapt and combine existing styles to ensure that the finished piece is everything you imagined. If you are unsure of design features, particularly for engagement rings or if you are buying for someone else; we are here to advise on design ideas. Many bespoke projects start with an informal chat, before moving to the design stage. Once the direction and proposed budget are established, we set off to work on finding the perfect diamonds and gems that suit exactly what you are looking for.
Every thought and detail is carefully translated into reality through technical drawings and computer aided design (CAD) drawings.
With cutting edge technology a 3D wax model is then printed outlining the general shape of the piece.
The metal is cast by means of an age old technique dubbed “lost wax casting”.
Once the jewellery is cast it is then passed on to Haywards master jewellers. The metal is further shaped and polished and gems are set. The entire piece is then professionally cleaned and finished to the highest degree of perfection.
The glimmer of the gems and brilliance of the diamonds is beautifully displayed in each and every finely crafted piece of bespoke jewellery. Be it a symbol of love, friendship or a celebration of life, everything we make at Haywards is a treasure for generations to come.
