We originally coined the phrase 'creating tomorrow's heirlooms'. Combining a vague idea or a scribbled sketch, and our expertise, we can create a piece of jewellery you'll love and wear for a lifetime. You may even pass it on, if the next generation are lucky enough!
It's important for us to talk directly with our clients. By meeting you, we get to know your style and preferences and the design you have in mind. We take great pleasure in helping you to create a unique piece of jewellery. You may already have something specific in mind but if not, we are skilled at helping you along every step of the way. By the time we actually manufacture your piece of jewellery, your input - however small - will make the finished piece of jewellery more meaningful. Hand made by us, for you, or someone very special. Truly tomorrow's heirloom.
Commissioned jewellery bears the Edinburgh hallmark, the only remaining assay office in Scotland. Our makers stamp, 'CAC', completes the hallmark, while we have the Assay Masters permission to use the old Inverness stamp, 'INS' - a traditional stamp struck to identify any piece made and hallmarked in Inverness.
For the year, 2012, the assay office also offered a special commemorative hallmark for the Diamond Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II. The Queen is only the second British Monarch to serve for 60 years. Any precious metal piece submitted for hallmarking were struck with this mark which depicts a young Queen Elizabeth wearing an oversized crown in a diamond shaped surround. The hallmark will become a unique piece of history.
While dating back to 1971 offers years of experience money simply cannot buy, two generations in the business ensure we are up to date with the latest technology.
Computer-aided design (CAD) and computer-aided manufacture (CAM) transform your idea into a virtual image - able to be rotated and manipulated to suit your requirements. By viewing the proposed design on computer, we are able to show you the piece in a range of different stone sizes, colours and metals, before presenting you with the finished article.
