Workshop

workshop

Wharton Goldsmith is a premier master jeweller and we specialise in creating exquisite bespoke design pieces.

It’s a craft we’ve been practising for over 70 years and today that craft is in the hands of our experienced designers, Christopher Wharton and son Sam.

Based on the materials and styles you love and any inspirational pictures or sketches you share with us, we’ll create a design as unique as the intended wearer of your bespoke jewellery. Not only will you be able to view the detailed design on-screen but you’ll be able to feel its contours as we’ll also create a wax model version so you can try it on, get a feel for the size and place different stones so you can really visulise your final piece.

Each of our diamonds are hand picked, we recommend physically choosing your diamond as they need to be seen to really appreciate the quality and beauty. We recommend you don't buy diamonds online.

The process

Our in-house workshop combines the best of the old and the new, utilising both traditional and new jewellery making techniques to best serve your requirements. For example, our laser welder techniques eliminate the need to use solder and ensure pinpoint accuracy. We also carry out traditional setting by hand under bench microscopes with 30x magnification, ensuring the finest and most accurate setting is achieved.

At Wharton Goldsmith, you can, therefore, rest assured that your jewellery is in good hands. So what does the Wharton process involve?

First, based on the materials and styles you love and any inspirational pictures or sketches you share with us, we’ll create a design as unique as the intended wearer of your bespoke jewellery. Not only will you be able to view the detailed design on-screen but you’ll also be able to feel its contours as we will translate your on-screen design into a wax model using a state-of-the-art wax printer. You can, therefore, try on the wax model version of your jewellery to get a feel for the size and even place on different stones so you can really visualise your final piece.

Our personalised service is tailored to your costs and preferences, making sure you get a beautiful piece of jewellery you can treasure for a lifetime.

You’ll never be disappointed with your experience at Wharton Goldsmith.
