Commissions

Martin, in collaboration with award winning jewellery designer Katherine Rainforth specializes in designing and hand making unique pieces of jewellery which have had your personal involvement in the design process.  An appointment is arranged to discuss your ideas and designs for a special bespoke piece.  You can spend time discussing the many possibilities which are then sketched to bring your ideas to life. From beautifully-drawn sketches Martin will turn these into a 3 dimensional image so that you can envisage your piece before it is made. We will listen to your preferences and combine them with our inspiration and know-how, to produce jewellery that both fits you comfortably and suits your particular style. You’ll be presented with a selection of designs that will look just like a photo of the finished piece of jewellery.  There are so many occasions where a bespoke piece is often the best way to achieve total satisfaction.  We can use a customer’s own metal and stones which they already own, and frequently redesign inherited jewellery.  Sometimes it can just be a case of needing to sit down with Martin to explain exactly what you want and we can create the perfect piece. All Martin’s jewellery is handmade on the premises, and most commissions take approximately three weeks although we do try and meet a customer’s tight timescale wherever possible.  We require a deposit to cover design costs and outlay for materials which is refundable, final payment can be made on collection of the commission. An independent third party valuation can also be supplied for insurance purposes.

If the design isn’t exactly as you imagined we give you 3 months for any alterations to be made free of charge, even if it means we start again.  The most important thing to us is that every customer enjoys wearing Martin Gotrel Jewellery, your complete satisfaction is our ultimate reward.
