A touch of sparkle

Q. We are considering having our wedding rings custom-made. Is it expensive and do you have any tips?

A. Jeff Lippman says: Custom-made jewellery that fits perfectly often works out more purse-friendly for clients.

The main advantage is that the item is a one-off piece that reflects each couple's style. I like to work with customers getting a feel for what they like to create the perfect piece.

The original stones in an existing item, like a family heirloom or sentimental ring or necklace, can be re-set or the metal refined, for example, yellow gold can be melted down and made into a new rose gold item.
