Bespoke work & commisions

repairs & alterations hero img
remodel we specialise in remodelling existing pieces, giving a new lease of life to worn out or unloved jewellery

From a simple gold wedding band to a cluster set diamond and sapphire engagement ring with lots of sparkle, bespoke jewellery often holds much more value than just its price tag.

Here at Oakland Jewellery, i’ve been lucky enough to be involved with engagements, birthdays, anniversaries and weddings for almost twenty years. I’ve been trusted to make engagement rings for friends and family, colleagues and of course new clients, and I take the same care and pride in my work whether i’m working on a platinum and diamond ring or a simple silver pendant.

I’m happy to take on commission work in silver as well as platinum and gold, so commissioning your own piece doesn’t need to break the bank!

How it works

Step 1

Give us a call or drop us an email to discuss ideas, and book for in for a free initial consultation. I’ll ask the right questions to take your ideas and run with them, using my technical expertise gained over almost 20 years at the bench to bring what’s in your imagination to life. I can call in a selection of stones for you to view to fit your designs and budget, from diamonds and sapphires to opals, pearls, tourmalines and tanzanites, there’s sure to be a unique gemstone for you to fall in love with.

Step 2

Once I know what you’re looking to achieve, I can sketch up a choice of designs for you to choose from, and make any changes requested until your new design is looking just how you want it. Don’t worry, this is free of charge, and there’s no obligation to proceed at this point in the unlikely event that I can’t capture just what you’re looking for.

Step 3

Once the design is finalised, i can get started with the fun stuff – out comes the blowtorch, saw and hammers; i’ll start either by bending and shaping straight into metal or carving and sculpting your piece in wax, then take your new bespoke jewellery through all the filing, sanding, and polishing processes before carefully setting any gemstones and giving it a final buff to bring it up to a perfect mirror finish.

Step 4

Now your new piece is finished, all that’s left is for you to wear it!

Wendy at Oakland Jewellery completed two projects for me. She came came highly recommended and did marvellous work repairing one ring and completely redesigning another.  Her designs were hard to choose between as they were all fabulous.   My wife was absolutely delighted. Thank you Wendy.

I would like to thank you for the fantastic jewellery which you designed, made, and boxed up for me, as a present to my girlfriend for Christmas. The whole process was very professional from start to finish. The initial conversation was for me to give a little detail about who the gift was for, what sort of ideas I had, and what I did not want! Wendy then gave me a couple of potential pricing brackets and then after my choosing she showed me some amazing visual representations to choose from. I was immediately drawn to one of the images and I let Wendy know my choice which she then set about making. The resulting dragonfly stylized bracelet was beautifully made with care, thought and passion. Which all comes through in the jewellery. All made in quicker time than suggested and I was so pleased with the result, which looked just like the visuals.

Wendy is amazing … I had a ring from my 21st birthday which I just didn’t wear because it was set in yellow gold. Wendy redesigned it completely, giving prices for silver white gold and platinum, and I couldn’t wait to say yes!!! The result is spectacular!! So many fabulous comments for my original piece. The ring is now firmly back on my finger where it should be and is not coming off anytime soon. Will not go anywhere else from now on until I’ve spoken to the oracle for advice and guidance first !! I’ll be back …

Wendy recently turned my old jewellery in to a stunning ring and necklace. She also repaired another ring. Lovely to deal with and such a talented lady! I highly recommend Wendy and will use again in the future.

I would like to say a HUGE thank you to Wendy Booth of Oakland Jewellery. I had a ring that was given to me when I was 11 years old and my Nan passed away. I started wearing it in my 20’s and about 6-7 years ago one gem fell out, followed by 2 more in quick succession and then I lost a 4th. I was understandably distraught but on shopping around I was being quoted costs of around £700 – £800 which I couldn’t warrant. On meeting Wendy at a networking event I showed her my ring and she quoted a much lower costs to fix the ‘arms’ and replace the gems. Within less than a week it was returned to me and in perfect condition. The ring was stunning and I was thrilled. I showed lots of friends and everyone was so impressed. Wendy even created a video so I could see how the work was done from start to finish and the amazing talents that she has. I would highly recommend Wendy for any jewellery repairs and I thank her again for returning my Nan’s wonderful ring. I will use you again!
