Whether it’s an engagement ring, the creation of a first gem, a Christening gift, or a personal treat to add to a collection. We undertake commissions of all descriptions creating different styles for the individual. Our St Albans based in house designer and goldsmith will work closely with you throughout the process to ensure that your bespoke jewellery piece is bought to life as you imagined it.
It’s with our unique bespoke design offering that the skills of our in-house design team really come into their own either designing and creating the perfect original piece for you or else re-modelling your old jewellery into something exciting and new. The design process is personalised to you and can start with you bringing in a picture of something you like or just an idea in your head.
If you can visit us in person, our designer will first sit down with you and show you a selection of our finished pieces to help give you an idea of some of the options and styles we can create. Guided by your preferences and obviously your budget, we’ll help you identify the diamonds or gemstones that will form the focal point of the piece.
Once we’ve agreed the specifications, we’ll provide you with an life-like 3D render of how it will look. We’ll email you the first draft design images within a week so you can see how the piece will look from every angle. Then, based on your feedback, we’ll continue to modify your design until you are completely happy with the result. The entire design process normally takes about two to three weeks. And, of course, we’ll only start work once you’ve approved the design.
Once you’ve signed off the design it’s over to the master craftsmen, and women, in our small but perfectly formed design team with their years of experience and expertise. Finally, the piece will be hand finished to achieve the most exquisite standards of workmanship.
Once the craftsmen have completed the piece and it has passed our final quality control it is sent to the Assay Office. They will independently verify the metal used is up to UK standard and the Hallmark the piece with our unique mark. This mark is our promise to you that the piece has been made to our exacting standards.
From the sketchbook to the workshop to a physical piece of elegant jewellery. The whole bespoke process at Kings Hill Jewellery is carefully overseen and undertaken by a team of expert designers and goldsmiths to ensure that you love the piece that you've always dreamt of.

Take a look at some of our previous bespoke designs that we have completed for clients in the past. These pieces can start from something as simple as a handful of cherished family diamonds or gemstones, another piece of jewellery or even the same piece which has been remodelled to create a more contemporary version of the original one.
