Commissions

What is a Commission?

Your Dream Piece! Your very own design journey. An item of Jewellery made exactly how you want it. Whatever the item, It can happen!

A Design Consultation is a personal relaxed way of discussing your ideas without obligation. Collette is committed to helping you decide on the perfect design and bringing it to life.  Every element of your design is crafted in our Birmingham workshop. You can be ensured your investment will be treasured for a lifetime.

During a first meeting you can expect to discuss design and purpose as well as budget while some initial sketches are made. A no obligation quote will be provided. If you wish to proceed a 50% deposit is taken and work begins. The final payment is paid on collection of the finished item.

To get the piece absolutely perfect it may be necessary to attend further meetings during the making process. This ensures everything is perfect when you collect the item. The whole process takes approximately 6-8 weeks. However, we will always be as flexible as possible in accommodating your deadlines

Alternatively consider one of our ‘Experience Days’ and make your own!

 

Metal and Stones

The option of Fairtrade Gold will be available when possible. We can also source conflict free diamonds and stones. You will have the option to view a choice of stones at different price points. We have extensive contacts locally and globally to ensure we can find what you’re looking for.

 

Re-modelling and Recycling

You may find you have jewellery that is looking tired, worn and outdated. Maybe you have inherited items that are just not your style? You could have a ‘pot of gold’ full of broken jewellery. We can re-cycle your metal and use any undamaged stones to make a piece that you will love to wear while maintaining the sentimental attachment.

 

Memorial

We can advise on deeply sentimental and memorial pieces. This is considered an honour and we guarantee to work with compassion, understanding and care.

Neck, Wrist and Ring Sizing

Neckwear

As a default all our pendants are hung on 18 inch chains. We have found this is the most popular length. We can supply our pendants on 16'' 18'' 20'' 22'' 24''. 

To decide what is the best length for you, measure an existing chain that is a comfortable length and make a note to help when choosing.

Alternatively, use a piece of string or ribbon to determine the perfect length for you.

Wristwear

Bracelets are very straightforward. The universally accepted length is 7 to 71/2 inches. Ours all have a short extender chain to allow for a little variation.

Bangles can be a bit trickier. We have a great tool you can download to help with this. You can place your own bangle over the template or cut it out and carefully put your hand through the hole. We find the medium is by far our most popular size.

Rings
