The Bespoke Design Process

DEIRDRE O'DONNELL CONTEMPORARY JEWELLERY welcomes orders for Bespoke Jewellery Commissions.

Please see below for an idea of how the process works......

  • Initial informal consultation with our Team at 19, South Anne Street, Dublin 2, Ireland.
  • 2 - 3 days later you will receive an Invitation for a complimentary Consultation with Deirdre in our Private Showroom, at which stage, Deirdre will sketch ideas, offer samples of different styles of Jewellery and discuss stone choices and design options. 
  • 3 - 5 days later, there will be a follow up with an estimate of cost for a re-design of an existing piece or an entirely new bespoke jewellery design.
  • Once the bespoke design estimate has been accepted, Deirdre will continue to the Technical drawing stage of the Design Process if necessary.
  • 3 - 5 days later you will be invited to view Design © options in our Private Showroom - these are presented by 'To Scale' Technical Drawings, with plenty of discussion and with any precious stones that are available to view and select. 
  • Once your final design has been selected a 50% deposit of the order payment is due to place the final design order for your bespoke piece*.
  • Your finished bespoke piece* of Jewellery will be ready 4 - 6 weeks following the final design selection.

Frequently asked Questions

Q: May I use my own gold and gemstones?

A: For Gold and Platinum, we are happy to re-work your precious metal into your chosen design following an inspection to ascertain the carat and hallmark.

Q: May I change my mind about the design?

A: There are lots of opportunities to change your mind and ponder your selection, however, once the Technical Drawing of your design has been chosen by you, we are compelled to fulfull our promise to provide this design for you. 

Q: What happens if I don't like the finished piece?

A: We don't rush any stage of the decision making process and won't move to the next stage in the design process unless we are happy that you have a complete vision of the finished piece. In the unlikely event that you are unsure of a finished piece, we will make sure that it is put to rights for you.
