We are Shân and Andrew, our love of jewellery started when we were both apprentices at Cartier.
After working for nearly 30 years creating fabulous jewellery in Mayfair, London, we have decided to open our own studio in Wendover, Buckinghamshire.
Andrew followed his Father and Grandfathers footsteps by becoming the third generation of jewellers to work at Cartier. Shân followed her childhood dream of becoming a jeweller and went on to represent Great Britain in the Skills Olympics.
We are both trained in traditional and modern techniques and have won numerous competitions at the Goldsmiths' Craft Council. We both received the Freedom of the City of London and are members of the Goldsmiths' Company. Andrew is a Fellow of the Institute of Professional Goldsmiths and honoured to be a judge for the Goldsmiths' Craft and Design Council Competition.
With our passion for jewellery, we provide the highest quality craftsmanship. From replacing a missing stone, a ring resize, to a bespoke handmade commission, all work is undertaken by us in our studio. With our full design service, unworn or broken jewellery can be transformed into a treasured piece.
We look forward to helping you with your jewellery requirements.
Our services include and are not limited to; ring resizing, rhodium plating, polishing, repairing worn settings, chain repair, restringing and engraving.
Some repairs can be completed on the same day, more complex repairs will require a little more time.
We offer a complimentary appraisal service on any piece of jewellery, so minor problems like worn settings don't end
up with a lost stone.
We can also supply and replace all gemstones. All repairs are undertaken
in our Wendover studio.
Remodelling is an excellent option if your jewellery is beyond economic repair, or you fancy giving older pieces a fresh, up to date look.
With our expertise, we can turn something unworn into a "must be worn" piece
We will be delighted to help you design and realise the unique piece of jewellery that you desire.
With our craftsmanship and expertise, we are able to offer you a bespoke service of exceptional quality.
We take great pride and care in our work and we're proud of the close working relationships we have with our customers.

Thank you for all your help."
