Jewellery Design Advice from Your Friendly Barkingside Jewellers


Creating a brand new piece of jewellery from scratch can be an exciting process, but it’s often difficult to know where to begin. That’s where we are happy to help. Here at EK Jewellers, Barkingside residents can come to us to help create a custom piece of jewellery, no matter what stage of the design process they’re at.

We’ve been helping the residents of Barkingside to create their dream bespoke jewellery from our premises in Hainault since 1973. With that in mind, whether you know exactly how you want the finished piece to look, or would like a helping hand with the initial design, here’s our advice on designing the perfect piece:

How can we Help you?

If you know exactly what you want, our job is to bring that piece of jewellery to life for you. We’ll happily suggest slight amendments or alterations if we think it will improve the overall design, but otherwise we’ll create your perfect piece.

If, however, you’re not sure where to begin, it’s a good idea to bring in pieces of jewellery that you already wear, or perhaps collect some pictures of pieces that you like. From there, we’ll ask you about your design preferences, as well as enquiring about your hobbies and lifestyle so that we can work together to create a unique piece of jewellery just for you. 

Part of the design process is listening to our customers’ needs, and our wealth of experience allows us to do that.  When working with EK Jewellers, Barkingside residents needn’t be worried about whether their ideas will work, as we’ll guide you through the initial stages with care.

It’s all in the Design Process

So you fancy a dainty piece of jewellery, but you work in a hands-on environment? Perhaps you therefore need something slightly more robust? This is why the design process is so important to EK Jewellers: Barkingside clients need to have bespoke pieces made which will work for them.

With this in mind, we’ll advise on metal hardness, stone settings, links and fastening types and all other aspects of bespoke jewellery that you need to be aware of before committing to the final piece.

And now the Fun Bit!

Once we’ve established your initial design thoughts and the everyday needs of your jewellery, the fun bit happens. It’s time for us to sketch out your design and we’ll eventually narrow it down to your perfect piece.

From here, we’ll give you a timescale for the finished piece of work. All of our commissioned pieces are brought to life on site, so you know that your beautifully unique piece of bespoke jewellery will be in safe hands. We take pride in creating your exact requirements here at EK Jewellers. Barkingside residents, therefore, know that just a short hop away in Hainault, their jewellery dreams can come true.
