Alicia takes limited bookings each month for the creation of customised or completely one-of-a-kind pieces of jewellery in Sterling Silver, 9ct or 18ct Gold.
If you are thinking of inquiring about a custom or bespoke piece of jewellery you will be first asked to answer a short questionnaire in order to ascertain the scope of the project. You'll be asked for your budget, your preferences on metal alloys and gemstones, and to provide some design references.
Whether it is wedding and engagement jewellery, a special birthday or just to own a piece that nobody else has – email email@example.com to discuss your ideas for your own one of a kind piece.

Bespoke Orders FAQ
How much does a bespoke ring cost?
A lot of work goes into working out the price for a completely bespoke project, and I can rarely give you an instant answer to this question.
As a guide, there is a minimum spend of AUD$750 for a simple, one-of-a-kind ring without any gemstones in Sterling Silver, and AUD$1,250 for a simple, one-of-a-kind ring without any gemstones in 9ct Yellow Gold.
Pricing covers more than just the materials needed for the project. I want you to have the very best outcome for the project - a future heirloom beyond your expectations. Pricing also covers us discussing the project in detail, sourcing gemstones if required, time needed liaising with suppliers, and the labour involved in hand-carving your model, casting, gemstone setting and finishing it to perfection.
What if those prices aren’t in my budget?
I have an extensive catalogue of pieces in my 'ready to wear' collection that you can choose from at a lower price point. The addition of gemstones to existing designs is also a nice way to add a unique touch to a piece and can be a more affordable alternative to a completely bespoke project.
How long does it take to make a bespoke ring?
A minimum of 6 weeks lead-time is preferred for a completely bespoke project - especially if I need to source a unique gemstone for your project.
Do you have gemstones in stock to choose from?
I have a small range of beautiful gems available in stock to choose from including rough and faceted sapphires, and unique cuts of black diamonds and salt and pepper diamonds.
Can you source a specific gemstone for my project?
I have a wide network of local and international suppliers and am usually able to source your perfect gemstone. However, sourcing can be an exhaustive process if your requirements are very specific, so in order for me to go through this process for you, there is a AUD$50 sourcing fee, payable up-front, which is redeemable off the project cost.
What if I have my own gemstones I’d like to use?
I love working with client’s stones. They are always full of history and sentiment that ultimately enriches the finished piece of jewellery.
However, because I did not personally source the stone, I cannot guarantee it for defects during manufacturing. If my clients agree to my provision that I accept no liability for the stone whilst in my care then I am more than happy to work with their gemstones.
Sometimes heirloom and inherited gemstones turn out to be a different material to what was understood by the family. While optional, I strongly recommend having the stone independently certified (for a nominal fee) so I know what I am working with and how best to work with it.
Can you incorporate my gold into a new piece?
This is not currently a service that I can offer in my studio, however I can offer a refining (recycling) credit from the existing gold towards your new piece.
