Absolutely stunning...

"I have received excellent customer service from Wharton Goldsmith after having three pieces of jewellery commissioned. My ideas for a ring, earrings and pendant designs were extremely well interpreted. All valuations were received in a timely manner and I would recommend Wharton to friends and colleagues."

- Mrs. Karen Lewis

Absolutely stunning...

"I was recommended Wharton Goldsmith through a good friend who has used them multiple times over the years. I would not hesitate to do the same. I designed an engagement ring from scratch with Sam’s help, the service was outstanding from day 1 and the ring was perfect! We then got 2 wedding rings made, again extremely pleased! The entire process was flawless and I couldn’t be happier! I look forward to using them in the future! Highly recommend!"

- Mr. Tom Bristow

Absolutely stunning...

"It is always a pleasure to deal with Wharton Goldsmith. The staff are very welcoming, always professional and the quality of their work outstanding. I have had jewellery made, purchased jewellery, had rings sized and items valued. On each occasion I have been extremely happy with the service and quality of work received."

- Mrs. N Johnstone

Experience you can trust

With 70 years experience, you can trust Wharton Goldsmith to undertake your commissions with the care and respect they deserve.

Members of the National Association of Jewellers and the British Jewellers Association, we pride ourselves on ensuring the highest standards of craftmanship at all stages of production from the original design to the traditional hand-making of the jewellery in our workshop.

Think of the Wharton Family and you think of Jewellery design, its intrinsic to their lives and has been for generations.

Bespoke Design for you

If you are looking to create something truly unique our one of a kind bespoke design services allows you to work with our expert designers to handcraft an individual piece just for you. Our design team can help bring your ideas to life and create the breath-taking jewellery of your dreams.

Following an initial Bespoke Wedding Ring Design consultation, where we’ll discuss your ideas, hopes and expectations for your wedding rings, our Master Jewellery Designers, Chris or Sam Wharton, will create a series of rough sketches to inform the next steps in the design process.

Craftsmanship and elegance

Buying a Christopher Wharton Design is your assurance of individuality as all of our designs are unique to us. Each design is created by the most experienced and highly trained goldsmiths and crafted using stones of only the highest possible quality. They are all ethically sourced providing peace of mind you can treasure forever – your guarantee of enduring quality.

A finished piece to keep for all time

Once you’re happy with every aspect of the design, a wax prototype will be created so you can get a proper feel for your wedding ring and we can further adjust and modify the look in 3D form.

Once the prototype has passed our strict quality guidelines, your unique wedding ring design will be brought to life in your chosen material, the stones will be set, and the final piece polished.

We’ll help you explore the options and discover styles, materials and ideas that you’ll love.

Our Master Jewellery Designers Christopher & Sam Wharton will produce a preliminary sketch, incorporating your input from the discovery stage, your personal preferences, and of course your budget.

Our service doesn’t end there for our bespoke customers. You are welcome to drop your ring back to us for a free professional clean. We also know that fingers change size and shape over time - we can adjust your ring band size if you need us to.
