At E.C.One we are passionate about making unique, beautifully crafted bespoke jewellery using responsibly sourced materials. Our business is built around our highly skilled in-house craftspeople working in our own workshop using centuries old techniques. The workshop is located within ourstore, so this service need not cost more than an off-the-shelf piece.
TALK TO US
Call, email, text or come just come in and have a chat with one of the EC One sales assistants. They have all been highly trained in jewellery design and have helped literally hundreds of our customers through the years. Here you can talk through your ideas; show images of things you may like and get a better understanding of what is possible. We may make some rough sketches and show you examples of pieces we have made in the past, always giving you our best advice on what we think will work.
SEE SOME STONES
This is the fun part - sitting down with one of our team to see amazing stones that would work with your design. We will try to give you different choices based on colour or shape and maybe offer some alternatives. We are passionate about using high quality materials, responsibly sourced that are and wherever possible traceable.
AGREE WHAT IT WILL LOOK LIKE
Once the design has been agreed, we will either present this to you as a sketch, 3d cad drawing, printed wax model or make a silver model called a maquette (the French word for scale model) to help you visualise the end result. Once you are happy with your design and we have agreed the details your unique piece of jewellery will be made in our Exmouth Market workshop by one of our skilled Goldsmiths.
COME FOR A FITTING
Depending on the design we may ask you to come in for a fitting. This is just to check the piece sits well on you before we have committed to setting stones.
THE FINISHED PIECE
This is always a surprise as it looks so much better than the sketch or model. Our Goldsmiths have very exacting standards and the finished article will be perfect before it goes to its happy recipient.
We will send you a free valuation for your insurers, often with a photo for your records.
As an EC One customer, you are welcome to bring the piece back to have it cleaned and spruced up at any time in the future.
