Let's bring your own treasured jewel to life for your loved one or yourself!
1. Initial consultation
Commissioning a unique jewellery piece with Victoria von Stein is a delightful experience - resulting in a radiant one-of-a-kind piece created especially for you that lasts a lifetime!
This creative journey begins with a one to one consultation to discuss your initial needs, ideas, budget, inspiration and intentions. There's no pressure to have a specific design already in mind!
The whole process can take up to 2-3 months as a guide. Timeframes vary depending on the design stage, sourcing the desired precious metal, gemstones and the intricate handcrafting technical skills used. It also needs to allow for the piece to be sent away to be Hallmarked by the Assay Office in London.
I would be very happy to offer you my personal service and guide you through the beautiful process.
2. Design Process
This an inspiring innovative creative process. I can help you find clarity for your special occasion or gift by presenting drawings, creative design options infused with my signature visual style and brand new styles. After discussing a few selected variations, the best final one will be developed for your approval.
Precious Metals & Gemstones
As it's a unique individual piece, you decide which precious metal you wish to have it created in. Recycled, fairmined or fairtrade gold or recycled silver combined with beautiful sourced gemstones is durable and has longevity.
I'll source fine quality gemstones for you unless you'd like to use your own.
Remodelling Heirloom pieces
You also have the option to transform your unworn heirloom jewellery and integrate your sentimental valuable gemstones into a new piece that fits your personality and style! It may give a new sparkling life to your gemstones and create a new timeless story to tell! 22ct, 18ct, 9ct yellow gold jewellery may be melted down and reworked.

3. Craftsmanship Process
Once the design has been approved, the bespoke piece will be made using a combination of either 3D CAD manufacturing techniques with wax models and traditional goldsmithing craft techniques. It depends on the technical requirements of the design. I recommend using recycled or fairtrade precious metals.
