The Bespoke Journey

For a truly unique and special piece of jewellery, tomfoolery offers an expert bespoke commission service aimed at meeting your individual design brief. The team here at tomfoolery will go above and beyond to ensure the whole experience feels as special as possible.

From discussing initial ideas through to creating your final piece, we give you the opportunity to be involved in every step of the journey.

YOUR FIRST STEP

We always recommend visiting the gallery for an initial design consultation.  Whether you wish to mark a special occasion, life milestone or remodel your inherited jewellery, we are pleased to help you explore all the avenues for consideration. In order to provide our bespoke team with as much information as possible about your brief, please complete our Bespoke Enquiry Form. We will then get in touch to arrange an appointment with you.

Please note that bespoke commissions start at around £500 for a simple design in 9ct gold.

CHOSE THE MAKER

As an established contemporary jewellery gallery, we are keen to support our independent designers. If you are inspired by the work of one of the UK or international designers we stock here in the gallery, we would be happy to approach them directly with your bespoke enquiry and continue from there. 

If you would prefer to collaborate with our experienced in-house bespoke team and workshop, we will be on hand throughout to personally assist you throughout the process. 

Many customers approach us brimming with ideas for their commission. If you are in need of inspiration have a look at our Bespoke Gallery.

DRAWINGS

As part of our bespoke service you have the choice of opting for a hand drawing or sketch of the proposed commission. This is something our bespoke team can discuss if this or a CAD will be best suited for your needs.

STONE SOURCING

When it comes to incorporating stones into your bespoke design, you have several options – you can take advantage of our handpicked tf Stones or provide your own stones, either loose or set into existing jewellery. Alternatively, we offer a specialist Stone Sourcing Service – this involves approaching our wide network of trusted stone dealers to source stones that fit your specific requirements. If you choose this route, we will take an £85 stone sourcing deposit which is deducted from the final price of your commission.

CONFIRMATION 

Once we have received a quote from our workshop, in order to move forward with the make we will require a 50% deposit before proceeding with the make. 

THE MAKE

The making process will take around 6-8 weeks, though we will do our best to accommodate any tight deadlines. We are always as excited as our customers to see the final design so we will be in touch as soon as we have your unique creation in our hands! 

A DIFFERENT PROPSAL

Every spring tomfoolery holds our annual Alternative Wedding Showcase. Beginning in March running until the start of May this is a great opportunity to meet with our bespoke team to discuss a bespoke project for an engagement, wedding or eternity band. The gallery is open 7 days a week during this period so don’t miss out and book an appointment with our bespoke team today.
