Our Core Values

Personal Service

The British population deserve more than a ready-made product range, which is often not quite right for any one of them. At Custom & Co. our ‘perfect matching’ consultation, led by an expert Goldsmith, is designed to get to know you, so that together we can develop a jewellery item to a specification to your exact taste, which is longer-wearing for you, and without compromise. Individually crafted in-store, with aftercare advice and services personal to you.

Quality

Great measures have been introduced to ensure only the best quality for your meaningful item. Strict quality benchmarks apply in sourcing the finest materials. Each stone selected by hand for the individual item to ensure it is just perfect for that placement. Master Goldsmiths chosen for their skill and total dedication to their craft, giving you individual craftsmanship which is second to none. Professional in-store aftercare services, and a lifetime guarantee*, ensuring the quality lasts.

Expertise

When purchasing a meaningful item of jewellery, we believe expert advice is essential. We recognise that there is no one more expert than the Goldsmith, and this is the reason they take the lead at Custom & Co. Whether you are developing a new piece, want to cherish and revive a well-loved item, or even respectfully re-model a piece, our Goldsmiths are on hand with expert knowledge developed over years of dedication to their craft.

Victoria & Stephen

"Absolutely do this workshop! James and Ben were fabulous and super accomodating to our ‘special’ moments. We are both thrilled with the result, they are far better than we could ever have imagined. Can’t rate them highly enough."

Haven Le-Core

"When a diamond in my engagement ring had fallen out I took it to Ben. He had replaced the diamond and soldered the gold around the diamond perfectly. I’ve picked it up today and am overjoyed with the result."

Della Green

"An amazing job of adding a stone into the band of my eternity ring in order to enlarge it. I thought I’d have to take it to London to be done and wasn’t even sure it would be possible. You are a true craftsman and we highly recommend you."
