When we are contacted about a bespoke bracelet commission the first step is to absorb our customer’s ideas for the piece. You will spend time with our front of house staff and consult with our craftsmen, we will study your references and work on sketches that capture details and seek to form a final plan for the item.
When we work with a customer to design a bracelet, we bring all of our experience and knowledge to the task. This allows us to find ways to achieve even the most ambitious of concepts in a way that will work well in real life. You’ll be able to choose from a full range of precious metals including gold, white gold & platinum and a vast range of fully certified stones from some of the world’s best suppliers.
3D Design & Prototyping
The process of constructing a custom bracelet can be quite different for different bracelet types and styles. We employ both traditional and the most modern techniques in the planning process to ensure the final product is truly first rate. The project sketches are built into a 3D model of the piece, giving you an unparalleled preview of how it might look and allowing us to capture fine details beyond the scope of a sketch.
A 3D model can then be printed as a real object wax, our customer doesn’t see this but it’s used as a template in a casting process or as a guide for work by hand or by laser or the right mix of both. Having the option to work with 3D printing has enabled us to improve our craft and push the boundaries of what’s possible in bracelet construction. If your concept is unique and bold, we’re the perfect choice to help make it a reality.
Making your bracelet
Every custom bracelet we make is fully constructed, fashioned and honed here in our Liverpool workshop. We’ve been making and repairing jewellery since 1952 and pour decades of experience into the mix as your bracelet is forged. We are adept with both traditional and the most modern jewellery making techniques giving us the scope to achieve truly stunning results with each and every bespoke bracelet we create.
Our craft has gone from strength to strength over the years through training, experience and embracing the latest metallurgical tools and techniques. In our long tradition of jewellery craft we can say with confidence that we’ve gone from strength to strength and have pushed the limits of what we can achieve through a bespoke bracelet project. When you bring your commission to us, you’ll enjoy the culmination of all we’ve worked for through the generations.
The day you collect your A&M Diggle bespoke bracelet is very special. We present it to you in our quality case shining and polished to perfection. We’ll give you a moment to take it in before leaving you with our assurance that we’ll always be here to expertly clean, maintain and if necessary, repair your bracelet through the years.
We always keep the plans and details of every bracelet we make. No matter what happens in the future we are ideally placed to create further pieces that match it perfectly, to repair or alter it or should the worst happen to fully recreate it. Some of our customers have been with us for most of their adult life and the items we made all those years ago still come back to us to be renewed and revived. Our jewellery may be for Christmas but it can all be for life.
