What Is Bespoke Jewellery?
Bespoke jewellery is perfect for those wanting something unique and special. Or those who have a particular design, or idea in mind. It allows you to add those extra personal details such as an engraving, monogram or special gemstone, thus becoming your own modern heirloom.
Bespoke fine jewellery is a very special thing, it allows you to embody your personality and character within the metal and gemstones. It can mark your biggest celebrations and milestones, and become a way to connect with future generations.
Why Should I Purchase Bespoke Jewellery?
Purchasing bespoke jewellery allows you to create a unique and emotive object that will become a personal heirloom.
Some people enjoy purchasing bespoke jewellery for themselves, to celebrate an achievement, mark a special occasion or milestone or even to just treat themselves (all of us deserve a treat now and again). They may enjoy being able to elevate their jewellery to the next level by adding engravings or hand-picked gemstones or love a metal colour and want their pieces to stick to their personal style.
Bespoke Jewellery With Kimjoux
It starts with a conversation. You can email us or book a call with Trang directly HERE.
Whether you know exactly what you want, or have no idea where to start, we are here to explore the right options with you and guide you to your perfect creation.
If you want us to get a head start before our consultation, you will find our gifting questionnaire useful! It is also simple and fun to use. All you need to do is fill in a couple of basic questions as much as you can, giving us some ideas about the bespoke piece you want to create such as who it is for, their lifestyle and fashion style, favourite colour and what the occasion is. We will then create a proposal with a few choices of designs to present to you.
At this point, you will be able to discuss with us any amendments or extra details you would like to add. This is a collaborative process, and a fun exploration of ideas. You can be as involved as you want.
We listen to every detail, take in every emotion you want to instil into the piece of jewellery, to translate in to a design that is perfect for you. Once you approve, it will be handcrafted by our talented craftsmen. Within 6-8 weeks you will have your precious jewellery in your hands!
Kimjoux is the destination for modern heirlooms.
Here is the standard procedure:
- We will send you the final design sketch for you to approve, at this point you can add any comments or request amendment.
- The final cost will be clearly stated in our proposal sent to you.
- Production will start 3-5 days after we receive your confirmation and deposit.
- Standard lead-time is 6-8 weeks to craft your bespoke jewellery.

What Diamond Shape Should I Use?
Round diamonds are the most popular diamond shape, however, there are lots of beautiful cuts to choose from, check out our blog about diamond cuts here! Depending on what you want to create we can work with a variety of cuts, which we can discuss in more detail in our private consultation.
How long does it take?
This depends on the design and the specific requirements. Sometimes certain rarer gemstones can take longer to source, or equally, we may be able to source your gemstones quickly. All of our jewellery is handmade by talented craftsmen, with technical skills that take years to master, this also means more time goes into creating your customised fine jewellery.
Can you find my perfect gemstone quickly?
As you know, natural gemstones are unique and can be rare to find. We have a trusted network of suppliers worldwide, but rarer stones can take longer to source still. There are many instances where I was able to find the perfect pair of fancy shape diamonds (which can be very tricky) quickly, but we never know until we know the specifics of what we are looking for.
Can you rush the order?
We endeavour to meet your requirements in the best possible timeframe. When you confirm the order, always make us aware of any deadline you have for it. Depending on our current working schedule and workload, we will rush your order at best we can. We will let you know within 3-4 working days whether or not the deadline is possible for us to do.
Our standard delivery time is 4-5 weeks after you confirm the order.
We hope this blog helps answer any questions or queries you had about bespoke jewellery and the process behind creating it, we also hope we have inspired you to create something special for yourself or a loved one!
