One of the greatest pleasures in my job is making one of a kind bespoke jewellery for clients.
Jewellery is personal, nothing else brings relevance and meaning to our lives like lovingly created bespoke jewellery, to celebrate those very special moments.
Part of the process is getting to know someone, and for a brief moment being part of their life – spending time understanding their dream.
Finding the stones and creating a design that will suit their dream and lifestyle. It’s a collaborative process, working together, creating a very special piece to be passed on to the next generation, which by then will hold precious memories of life and love.
Sometimes I am asked to redesign an old family piece that although it is treasured the style is outdated, so instead of sitting in a jewellery box the pieces can be upcycled, breathing new life into old stones and recycling the precious metals.
The journey from concept to completion can take as long as you need. I generally ask that a minimum of 4 weeks from briefing is allowed to create the final piece. Whether you have a strong vision for a design, or would rather leave the ideas and design entirely to me, my clients are invited to be as much or as little involved as they like.
India made a necklace to celebrate my 10th wedding anniversary. She took her inspiration from my aquamarine and diamond engagement ring.
I really enjoyed the experience. She expertly guided me through a fantastic selection of aquamarine faceted pear drops and brilliant cut diamonds of various grades and colours. She made various lengths of different styles of chain to ensure we got the perfect neckline.
I instantly loved the result, a classic deep blue aquamarine faceted pear drop with a cluster of brilliant cut diamonds set very simply in white gold on a fine chain.
I love India Mahon jewellery for it's exquisite style and timeless simplicity and all this with truly ethical values. Her bespoke service was a perfectly tailored experience that really captured my perfect piece. Just beautiful!
I find India Mahon's jewellery both beautiful and utterly covetable. Everything she makes, is wonderful, whether she is using silk, gold or silver, crystals, gemstones or more serious jewels. I have bought affordable gifts for friends, special gifts and treats for myself, all of which have been unique and lovely. The highlight of my (rather major) recent birthday was a wonderful bespoke necklace, from my husband, which we commissioned from India. My husband and I visited her a few times to discuss it. Each visit was a pleasure as India is fun, warm and a true artist. She happily talked through my vague ideas about a long necklace. Her enthusiasm for the design was amazing. She suggested unusual stones and revised the design several times, making gentle suggestions. The piece she made is indescribably beautiful and I adore it.
India remodelled an inherited diamond, sapphire and platinum Art Deco brooch into a contemporary everyday wearable ring. Her design is simple, unfussy, and accentuates the curves of the 2ct marquise diamond. I love it!India was a pleasure to work with. Always patient, she answered my questions in an easy to understand and friendly professional manner. I felt complete confidence in India’s knowledge and guidance, she has an amazing attention to detail. I liked and trusted her design signature and she progressed the design and production of the ring at a pace that suited me. What an incredible journey, I am delighted with the result and wear it all the time!
Peridot Signature Ring
I was instantly drawn to India Mahon’s colourful jewellery…. I knew exactly where I wanted to go when it came to picking out a special birthday gift.
India’s shop is an absolute paradise and it didn’t take long for several rings to catch my eye! Different stones, colours, shapes – I was spoilt for choice…in fact, how would I chose between them all?! And it was at exactly this point where my experience with India Mahon turned from excellent to exceptional.
India offered a personal and special service, offering to make a bespoke ring, meaning that I could combine all of the elements I loved into one piece, made especially for me! Wow!
India went above and beyond, sourcing several stone options (different sizes, shapes, shade), inviting me in to the shop to be part of this process – a real treat. India’s passion for her craft, her warmth and energy is unique and I feel very lucky to have a bespoke ring that captures this. I wear the ring everyday and I STILL find myself gazing at it, even several months on!
Would I go back to India Mahon? You bet – I am already planning my next visit and I have another special piece of jewellery that I am on the look out for and quite simply, I wouldn’t consider going anywhere else for this.
