FEATURE OF THE WEEK (June 2011-Dec 2012)

Each week this page will feature a new piece of jewellery that we are currently making. It may be a piece which we shall be putting into stock in our retail shop because we have come across a particularly nice stone, or have just been experimenting with new designs. Or we may feature a bespoke piece made to a customer's specification which we have enjoyed making. Please scroll down the page to see past weekly features.

Satuday 22nd December 2012:

Approximately 3 weeks ago, a couple came into the shop with a very specific idea in mind. They wanted a morganite and diamond cluster ring. Morganite is a natural stone of the Beryl family and it's slightly pinkish hue is similar to that of a pink diamond. Steve got in a couple of morganite stones for the couple to choose from and completed the handmade job yesterday. Our last Christmas order! They came in earlier to collect the ring and they were very pleased with the end result. We wish the couple a very Merry Christmas and a happy New Year. And all the best for the future in married life.
Saturday 15th December 2012:

This beautiful one off ring is a Bickerton bespoke piece handcrafted to the customer's specifications. There is a pear shaped amethyst weighing 0.70cts and a diamond weighing 0.05cts set in a wire mesh dress ring in 9carat yellow gold. This ring demonstrates Bickerton's fine craftsmen's talent and impeccable attention to detail. 
 Saturday 8th December:

Photographed is a 9carat yellow and white gold handmade pendant with a garnet in the centre weighing approximately 0.40cts and 2 round cut diamonds weighing 0.25cts the pair. This pendant is a Bickerton one-off, handmad

Saturday 1st December 2012

 Photographed is a Bickerton special which can be made in any metals. The ring pictured is a 9carat yellow and white gold gent's dress ring (though it could be worn as a wedding band) with 2 diamonds weighing 0.20cts the set (one in each band). The bands are completely separate and therefore can be worn together or apart. One of the bands pictured is satin finished for an ultra-modern, one off look. 
 Saturday 24th November:

Photographed is a beautiful tahitian pearl pendant. The pearl in this pendant is naturally brown and therefore very rare and beautiful. The pearl is set with diamonds above as a dropper pendant though can be done as a single stone pendant. This pendant is a one off piece and can be worn 'going out' or day to day as brown and diamonds go with any outfit!! The perfect Christmas present for your loved one!
Saturday 17th November 2012:

Pictured is a beautiful handmade 18carat yellow and white gold diamond solitaire. The diamond is marquise shaped and is colour G clarity VVS2. This customer was proposing to his girlfriend but wanted something different. We drew some simple designs for him and he trusted our judgement. This is the outcome, a beautiful, one off engagement ring. She said YES! Of course!
Saturday 10th November: 

Pictured is a Bickerton Jewellery one off. A gentleman visited the shop and spoke direct with Steve about having a golden topaz and diamond 3 stone ring made. After designing several options, Steve came up with t
his more art deco, modern design and the gentleman loved it. We then took the liberty of getting in a selection of golden topaz and diamonds for the gentleman to see (golden topaz is a yellow-peach colour) and the gentleman was able to choose and imagine the stones in a finished setting thus meaning he was involved in the handmaking process from the beginning right through. As is always true of Bickerton's, we handmade the ring on a no obligation basis and the man simply loved it. The simplicity of the design makes it wearable every day and yet the fact that it is handmade and thus bespoke and one-off makes this ring the perfect, affordable Christmas present for your loved one this Christmas. We can make this design in any coloured stone and would make a particularly stunning engagement ring in sapphire or ruby.
Saturday 3rd November 2012: 

The birthstone of November is topaz. Topaz, generally, is mined in the Topaz mountains in Utah and comes out colourless or grey and is then heat treated to give it it's bright colour. Colours vary from orange to blue t
o red to pink. Featured here is a beautiful blue topaz pendant set with a diamond in a rub over setting. The diamond weighs 0.10cts and the blue topaz weighs approximately 2.10cts. The diamond, as usual, is set in 9carat white gold with the rest of this pendant being 9carat yellow gold. Blue topaz is a beautiful, bright stone, relatively cheap and wearable all the time. This pendant is on an 18" thick 9ct yellow gold chain and is the perfect Birthday or Christmas present.
 Saturday 27th October:

This week's feature is a beautiful 3 row string of Akoya cultured white pearls with a centre pendant with a pear shaped amethyst weighing 1.25cts approximately with diamonds grain set around weighing approximately 0.20
cts the set. This is a relatively inexpensive piece of jewellery but looks the business as we're sure you will agree! Art deco but traditional at the same time, this piece would be the perfect wedding jewellery, black tie jewellery or simply a fantastic Christmas present! Don't forget to get your Christmas orders in early to avoid disappointment! 8 weeks today is December 22nd!
 Saturday 20th October 2012:

Today's feature is another Bickerton one off piece, handmade to the customer's specifications using their centre emerald. Here at Bickerton's, you speak face to face with the craftsmen who will handmake your piece and therefore we are able to listen to your design ideas and draw down different designs. This is the design the customer chose. Set in 18carat yellow gold with 2 diamonds rubover set in 18carat white gold, this ring is a beautiful one off piece. Wearable every day and eye catching, the customer is delighted!
Saturday 13th October 2012:

Photographed is the Murison Family Crest ring handmade by Bickerton Jewellery. When the Murison Family bought us a sketchy photo of their family crest, Stephen was able to draw what he imagined the ring to look like. We then were able to create a stamp for the family and had this seal engraved into the top of a 9carat yellow gold seal style signet ring chosen by the customer. 

At Bickerton's we have a wide range of signet ring styles to choose from and use one of the only hand-engravers left in the Jewellery Quarter. The outcome, we're sure you'll agree, is a beautiful, one off piece of jewellery which is special to your family and is the perfect piece to pass on to future generations. The ring is heavy and thick enough to last hundreds of years!

Photographed is a Bickerton one off, handmade on the premises by Bickerton's talented craftsmen. The two pear shaped stones are sapphire and emerald. The stones are rubover set in 9carat rose gold, a slightly pinker metal than regular yellow gold. The two stones are a deep colour and good quality, and with the rose gold surrounding setting, the stones really show up and are striking. The rest of the band is handmade in 9carat white gold. The difference in metal colours makes this an eye-catching one-off piece.Photographed is a Bickerton one off, handmade on the premises by Bickerton's talented craftsmen.

Saturday 29th September 2012: 

Photographed is a pair of Tahitian pearl and diamond earrings. In these earrings the top diamonds weigh 0.30cts the set and the second smaller set of diamonds weigh 0.05cts the set. The Tahitian pearls are sourced from Tahiti and are a beautiful grey mottled colour.
These are very clever and the perfect inexpensive present as the larger diamonds in the earrings are actually separate diamond stud earrings. The diamond and pearl droppers hang from the stud meaning that if you know someone who already has some diamond studs you can simply buy the bases. They are a fabulously dressy piece but we also do them in coloured stones, diamonds, fresh water pearls and many more. 
We have already taken 2 orders for these this week ready for Christmas! Get your Christmas orders in quick to avoid disappointment! 72 SHOPPING DAYS LEFT UNTIL CHRISTMAS DAY!

e sapphire than is usual) and diamond dress ring using 2 sapphires and 3 diamonds. After many sketches being drawn, the customer was happy our craftsmen understood her intention. We got in several slightly different ceylon sapphires for the customer to chose from, and this is the finished result. A beautifully handcrafted ceylon sapphire and diamond dress ring set in 9carat yellow and white gold.
Thursday 30th August 2012:

September's birthstone is sapphire, usually a beautiful deep blue colour. However, Bickerton Jewellery use not only these deep blue sapphires but also yellow and pink and on occasion, if the customer wishes, other coloured sapphires. Photographed is one of Bickerton's handmade pendants using blue, yellow and pink sapphires rub over set in 9 carat white gold and on a 16" white gold chain. Bickerton's craftsmen made this for a customer a few years ago and she loved it so much she agreed for it to be allowed as a Bickerton stock item. Beautiful, handmade and can be altered to any gemstones.
Wednesday 22nd August 2012: 

Photographed is a Bickerton one-off which was handmade to a customer's specifications using his own stones which were of great sentimental value. Hand-carved, the centre white section is 9carat white gold with 18carat 
yellow gold edges. Set in the white section are 4 princess cut sapphires of differing quality which came from a selection of his late-Mother's jewellery. Bickerton Jewellery do a lot of work with sentimental stones and metal as, with a workshop on view, customers are assured that their jewellery does not leave the premises whereas a lot of jewellers have to post out their work to other out-of-shop jewellers.

Photographed is what is commonly called a Russian Wedding ring, otherwise known as a trinity ring or a faith, hope and love ring. According to old myth, the Russian wedding band is made of 3 interlocking individual rings of differing colour to represent the Holy Trinity (Father, Son and the Holy Spirit).

Bickertons are one of the only places in the Jewellery Quarter who stock Russian wedding rings so pop in to see us for a quote for your exact specification.

A customer came in with 3 diamonds to be mounted into a pendant. Here at Bickertons we were able to give many design examples and she chose the one pictured. Bickertons supplied small diamonds to be grain set in the pendant's loop which is a free moving, hinged piece which can be worn on a diamond necklace (as pictured), a pearl string or a gold wire. In this way, this piece is very versatile and can be dressed up or dressed down. The customer's husband then visited our shop looking for gift ideas and we were able to suggest some matching earrings meaning that she had a set of jewellery to wear together. We matched up the diamonds and set the diamonds in the same way as the pendant. This set of jewellery is a beautiful one off which can be dressed up or down.

 Thursday 28th June: 

A gentlemen came to the shop with his late Mother's very good diamond. He wanted the diamond set in a dress ring for himself and had been around a lot of places who had attempted to design something but didn't have it quite right. Bickertons came up with several designs and he chose the one photographed. To make sure it was right, Bickerton's handmade the ring first of all in silver so as to ensure it was the right weight, width and setting on the diamond. This is the finished result; a beautifully handcrafted 18carat white gold mount, heavy, hardwearing and secure for his late Mother's diamond to be set in. He is thrilled!
 Saturday 23rd June 2012:

 You may remember that on 16th July 2011 Bickerton's feature of the week was an 18ct white gold half eternity ring using round and baguette diamonds. The ring pictured is a new design based on that ring. A customer visited our workshop looking for an art-deco style half eternity ring using sapphires. None of our stock items were quite what they were looking for, but having being shown the earlier featured half eternity ring, a new design was drawn up and this is the finishing product. Using baguette cut sapphires and round cut diamonds, this ring is set in platinum and is exactly what the customer was looking for. Bickerton Jewellery are always happy to give affordable quotes for one off pieces.

Wednesday 13th June 2012:

 Pictured is Bickerton Jewellery's handmade Household Cavalry seal style signet ring made in 9 carat yellow gold. Bickerton Jewellery specialise in regimental jewellery for over 80 regiments. Furthermore, we have recently donated a sterling silver Household Cavalry ring to their Charitable Fund. This will be auctioned off and we at Bickerton Jewellery hope that it will raise much needed funding for them. The Household Cavalry Central Charitable Fund is an umbrella fund that allows money to be directed to the point of greatest need. Its largest area is the Operational Casualties Fund: during the conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan, the Household Cavalry has been the most heavily deployed reconnaissance unit, and this has inevitably led to casualties. The Operational Casualties Fund is designed to provide both immediate support to wounded soldiers, and to make long term provision for them and their families. The wider fund also includes funds to support those injured in non-operational areas, such as through training or riding accidents, as well as providing support to serving and former soldiers and their families who have fallen on hard times or require welfare support. Finally, it seeks to secure the Regiment’s long-term financial support through the Household Cavalry Museum, which is designed to provide sustainable income to the Regiment.
Thursday 7th June 2012: 

As summer is approaching (slowly!), wedding ring season is in full swing with couples searching around for that perfect rings to wear for the rest of their lives. Photographed is a recent engagement ring and wedding ring set a customer had handmade for her. Both made in platinum, the engagement ring is a classical round cut diamond in a 6 claw setting. The diamond weighs 0.90cts and was hand-selected by the customer from a range of 8 diamonds we, here at Bickertons, got in for her. She chose a colour H clarity SI2 diamond to be mounted in a handmade shank to her design with a JMB hallmark. The wedding ring was purchased at a later date. The customer wanted the engagement ring to remain the focal point but wanted some small diamonds set in her wedding band and for the engagement ring and wedding ring to fit perfectly together. The wedding ring handmade uses the crossover technique whereby the metal pinches in at the centre so that the engagement ring fits perfectly in the dent. Set with 6 diamonds weighing 0.12cts the set of matching colour and clarity to the engagement ring, these rings promise to be eye-catching one-offs which can be worn day in day out and will last a lifetime!
Friday 1st June:

Here at Bickerton Jewellery we specialise in pearl jewellery and currently have one of the largest selections of pearl jewellery in the Jewellery Quarter. As pearl is the birthstone for June, our feature of the week is a beautiful Tahitian pearl and diamond pendant. Tahitian pearls are found in Tahiti and are natural pearls from oysters. Usually slightly misshaped, Tahitian pearls vary in colour, the one pictured being grey. This pendant has been handmade by our craftsmen at Bickerton Jewellery with JMB hallmark.

 Thursday 24th May 2012:

A customer recently inquired about having a replica of Princess Diana/Kate Middleton's engagement ring. At Bickertons, we can source stones for a customer to view and choose from a selection. However, upon seeing the sapphires similar to those used in Princess Diana's engagement ring the customer decided they were too dark in colour and decided upon tanzanite. Sourced from Tanzania, tanzanites are a dark lilac in colour, bright and eyecatching. This ring is similar to the late Princess' with a few adaptations made by the customer. The shank of the ring is 18ct yellow gold but the diamonds and tanzanites are set in platinum as white metals tend to show up the stones better and by using platinum the stones are extra secure. The 10 diamonds around the tanzanite weigh 0.72cts the set. The centre tanzanite similarly weighs 0.72cts total. With JMB hallmark, this ring is similar to the late Princess' as the customer wanted and a beautiful item to own.

18ct yellow gold engagement ring and matching shaped wedding ring.

Bickertons are able to handmake any piece of jewellery and therefore were able to handmake an exact replica of the original using a 0.50ct diamond of colour G clarity VS1. Following this, Bickertons drew down many designs for the couple who took them away to have a think.

Pink diamonds are very rare and when a customer enquired about having something handmade by us here at Bickertons using a pink diamond we bought in a selection for the customer to choose from. Having chosen the pink diamond they wanted from the selection, the customer then found a design on the internet similar to what they wanted and our craftsmen at Bickertons were then able to design a ring to the customer's specifications. The end result is a beautifully hand-made ring using pink and white diamonds set in platinum and handmade to the customer's desire.

At Bickerton Jewellery, we specialise in pearls, and in particular in Tahitian Pearls. Tahitian Pearls occur naturally within the South Seas, and it is the greyness of the sands on the sea bed which give Tahitian Pearls their unique colour.
We carry a large selection of Tahitian Pearls in stock, both as pearl strings and as individual pendants and earrings. We also have a selection of loose Tahitian Pearls which can be made up into any design to make a unique piece of jewellery.
This Tahitian Pearl has been mounted in 9ct gold with a single diamond. The beauty of Tahitian Pearls is in their simplicity, and we are always happy to discuss your ideas for a uniquely designed piece.

When our daughter, Melissa turned 18, she wanted an amethyst and diamond ring for her birthday. She already had the centre diamond which had been given to her by her grandmother, so she picked 2 pear shaped amethysts to sit either side of the diamond. We made it in 18ct white gold for her, and she loves it! It never comes off her finger!
