How We Create Bespoke Pearl Jewellery

Pearls can be dressed up or down to suit the mood and outfit of their owner. How well this works depends on how much the pearl jewellery matches your individual style, the types of outfit you wish to wear, and your personal features that your pearls will forever complement – eye colours, face shapes and even your personality.

The perfect solution is bespoke pearl jewellery, designed specifically with you in mind. At Coleman Douglas Pearls, we can match you with the perfect product from a vast array of pearls to create the pearl jewellery of your dreams. Read on as we take a closer look…

Getting the most out of your pearls

What’s the point of bespoke pearl jewellery? Quite simply, it allows you to get the most out of your pearls. We’re all well aware that pearls are an investment. With pearls that are tailored to you, you’ll have jewellery you truly adore, which can be worn with any outfit, for any occasion.

At Coleman Douglas, we specialise in designs that can be worn in different ways and can even be re-designed in order to protect and enhance your investment. By tailoring pearl jewellery designs to suit your colouring and personality, we make sure every piece will stand the test of time and become an heirloom – treasured from one generation to the next.

Creating bespoke pearl jewellery

Most bespoke pearl projects start with a consultation where we discuss your requirements and get to know your individual style. Using our comprehensive knowledge of pearl varieties, quality and lustre, our team can perfectly match the pearl shape and tone to your unique style and features.

We draw upon our large inventory of natural and cultured pearls, from Tahitian and South Sea to Akoya and freshwater. Whether it’s a timeless necklace or a pair of magnificent earrings, you’ll enjoy the unique experience of choosing specific pearls and precious stones for your one-off design, which we will couple with some rough sketches of the shape and design so that you can visualise your special look.

If you would prefer, the desired item can be professionally rendered. This does take longer and incurs a higher cost, but provides a more accurate depiction of the finished product before proceeding to production.

Once you’re 100% set on the style, the production process will start. We’ll create your one-of-a-kind design, with anything from one to three fittings to get it just right.

What about existing pearl jewellery?

Whether it’s a special gift or a family heirloom passed down through the generations, it’s not uncommon for pearl jewellery to hold a lot of sentimental value. That can make it all the more frustrating if it’s not quite right.

One issue is natural wear and tear, where the slightly worn pearl jewellery doesn’t match the glitz and glamour of your occasion and outfit. Alternatively, you might simply feel that the pearls look dated in their design and style.

At Coleman Douglas Pearls, we have the expertise and finesse to recondition and redesign items of pearl jewellery, including those with natural pearls. Using the same consultation and planning steps as above, we’ll make sure your jewellery is the perfect match to your taste and appearance, so you can pair sentiment with style for years to come.
