Photographed below is a range of jewellery we have handmade either for stock or for a customer to their specification.
Saturday 20th December 2014:
Photographed is a Bickerton Jewellery special set which was collected today by a very happy customer! A couple came in with an LMG insurance card after their jewellery had been stolen. They saw a bangle in the window which they liked but was in pink sapphire. The lady asked if it was possible for us to change the stone and we, of course, said yes. She ended up not only ordering a 9ct yellow and white gold emerald and diamond bangle from us but also a 9ct yellow and white gold emerald and diamond matching ring, earrings and a pendant! A gorgeous set which is totally unique to her and exactly what she wanted. They look amazing together!
Saturday 13th December 2014:
Photographed is a Bickerton Jewellery one off. A lady came in with 4 loose diamonds and wanted them used in a modern style half eternity ring. At Bickerton Jewellery, we pride ourselves on our handmade pieces and therefore were able to design a range of different ideas for her and she chose this one; we supplied the centre diamond weighing 0.50cts and colour and clarity matched to her original diamonds. A beautiful and eye catching piece!
Saturday 6th December 2014:
A lady who has been a customer for approximately 28 years (!) had a very special birthday today! Having made her engagement ring 28 years ago and innumerable pieces since, her husband visited our shop secretly to commission a one-off piece of jewellery for her special birthday. This is the finished result- a beautiful, unique piece which she absolutely loves!

Saturday 1st November 2014:
Photographed is a Bickerton Jewellery one off. A customer visited our shop with her engagement ring (cluster at bottom) and her wedding ring (plain shaped band in centre). She wanted a shaped half eternity made to fit with her existing bands. At Bickerton Jewellery, we are able to categorise and value the diamonds used in existing jewellery and then source matching diamonds for new jewellery pieces. This was done with this piece of jewellery. Furthermore, we are able to ensure that the stones stretch the desired distance across the finger (this customer wanted a half eternity ring and therefore the diamonds were sourced to fit half way across the lady's finger). This is a beautiful half eternity ring which fits snugly with the lady's existing jewellery and matches perfectly.
Saturday 18th October 2014:
Photographed are 3 rings which a customer dropped into our show room to be used in a new cluster ring. At Bickerton Jewellery, we are able to design new pieces using old pieces and then handmake a piece to your design. This lady chose a beautiful new cluster ring with diamonds set in the shoulders too. An amazing use of 3 old rings which she no longer wears!

Saturday 20th September 2014:
Photographed is a Bickerton Jewellery one off commission. A lady bought in her Mother's old ring and wanted it altered into something more modern. Photographed here is the cluster ring in 18ct yellow and white gold before hand and then the finished 18ct white gold half eternity grain set diamond ring to the customer's specifications.

This week, we have been working on a beautiful handmade ring using a customer's old diamonds from inherited rings. Shown are the original 18ct yellow and white gold mounts which the diamonds came from and the finished 18ct white gold dress ring with the diamonds rub over set in. A beautiful one off piece and a fantastic way of using jewellery left to you which isn't your style or which you wouldn't personally wear. A lovely way to keep those who have gone with you.
Saturday 30th August:
Photographed is a Bickerton Jewellery special. A lady visited our shop and saw a moon stone pendant in sterling silver but wanted it in 9ct yellow gold.

Saturday 7th July 2014:
Photographed is a Bickerton Jewellery one off. A couple came in looking for a wedding ring to fit with the lady's engagement ring but everything they had tried on left a small gap between the two rings. Bickerton Jewellery staff were able to hand make a shaped wedding ring to fit with the engagement ring perfectly, first in silver, at which time the lady made a few changes to the thickness of the band and the setting of the diamonds. We then handmade it from the silver model in platinum. As you can see, the rings fit perfectly together and look like a flawless set!
