Bespoke Jewellery Design

Style your imagination. Turn your story into a statement piece. A bespoke Blacklock jewel is more than just a design – it’s an elegant expression of the wearer’s individuality. From the stone to the setting, every last detail is a reflection of your style, while the result is a perfect blend of craftsmanship and storytelling. What will your creation say about you?

“There can be nothing more personal than the honour of designing a bespoke Blacklock piece, with the knowledge that we are creating a piece of family history. An heirloom that will be passed down generations; a story that never meets its ending. It’s a remarkable thing to be a part of.”

Chris Blacklock

Evermore (2010)

To celebrate a significant anniversary we were approached to create an heirloom that ‘can celebrate a wonderful life together’ with a view for it to be passed on to future generations. Having been a military family and seconded to the Far East they had both visited Burma and fell in love with its rich history, culture and beautiful tropical landscape. So with this in mind we sourced a very rare pigeon blood red 3ct Burmese ruby and set it in a ring with a half halo tapered diamond setting. We sourced an unheated ruby of exceptional quality to be set in this heirloom piece.

Inferno Capsule (2016)

We were approached by a couple to create an engagement ring and matching wedding bands. They both met whilst performing in ‘Dantes Inferno’ at the Royal Opera House so they wanted something that could capture that magical time. We were briefed to explore an ‘Inferno’ theme for their bridal and wedding jewellery. We created a stunning asymmetrical diamond engagement ring with fire flickering around the central stone and his and hers wedding bands which again took on the flickering fire theme. All stones were of ‘D’ colour and IF clarity and set in platinum.

The Things Only You Know About

How We Approach a Commission

Our approach is a joyful affair, and reminiscent of a bygone age where personal service was unhurried and exclusive to each and every Client.



We get to know our Clients personally, face to face. We discover their likes, dislikes and uncover the essence of their style and personality.


Design Alchemy

We present the designs, which have been developed based on the Exploration. These are discussed and approved by you. At the same time, stones are individually presented and chosen.



Once the details and timeframes are agreed, and a deposit is paid, we begin crafting the piece. We communicate regularly to keep you informed of the progress, ahead of final delivery.



The presentation of the finished piece is our greatest satisfaction. Our Client sees the reality of their imagination brought to life for the first time. Your story is set in stone, and it is now yours to wear.

Every Blacklock design is owned by Blacklock Jewellery until full payment is received. Once received, design blueprints are handed over to the Client. Please see our full Terms & Conditions to understand more.

A Labour of Love

We have been telling stories through beautiful bespoke commissions since 1832. For us, each and every creation is a labour of love; the painstaking effort that goes into each piece is rewarded with the final unveiling of the finished jewel. This is what replenishes our pioneering spirit – the delight in the new, the unique and the extraordinary. It’s what makes Blacklock different from every other fine jeweller.
