Bespoke jewellery, created just for you
“One of the greatest pleasures in my job is creating one of a kind custom jewellery pieces for my clients.”
Jewellery is so incredibly personal. Nothing else brings relevance and meaning to our lives like lovingly created custom jewellery, to celebrate those special moments. To design and create unique jewellery that really means something, India believes that you first need to connect with the wearer on a personal level. Only then can you truly understand their expectations of the final piece.
One to one collaborative consultation is the catalyst for India’s entire creative process. Every client has a dream and India’s talent is in ensuring that their dream, and their lifestyle, are both encapsulated in the unique jewellery she designs and makes for them.
“Finding the stones and creating a contemporary jewellery design that will suit their dream and lifestyle. It’s a collaborative process, working together, creating a very special piece of unique jewellery to be passed on to the next generation, which by then will hold precious memories of life and love.”
India is sometimes asked to remodel a piece of jewellery that is a family heirloom, such as a diamond ring, earrings, necklace, bracelet or even a diamond tiara. Whilst the piece is highly treasured, the style is sadly out of date. Rather than banishing these priceless pieces to life in a jewellery box, India breathes new life into old stones and recycles the precious metals into something unique, elegant and highly contemporary that are wearable, every single day.
The journey from concept to completion is as relaxed as you want it to be and can take between three to twelve weeks. India generally requires a minimum of four weeks from initial consultation and briefing to the presentation and fitting of the final custom jewellery. Whether you have a strong vision for a new jewellery design, or would place the concept and design entirely to India, you are invited to be as involved to whatever extent you wish.

Hera Ring (Greek Style)
“I wanted a very special ring creating that I could wear every day, using the gold and diamond jewellery left to me by my father. India chose these ten tiny marquise and oval diamonds from over forty native South African diamonds she salvaged from my heirloom jewellery. I adore the ring she created I wear it every day. I enjoyed working with India, she listened and interpreted my dream perfectly. Our time together was a mix of fun and chatter and the business of creating a piece of jewellery I can enjoy and pass onto my own daughter.”
Precious Persian Turquoise
“It’s a pleasure to work with India, I trust her approach and sources, and I am confident she will always find just the right ethical stone to start the design process. She worked a small strand of Persian turquoise into a bracelet and earrings cleverly adding some hand made gold beads and clasp which complimented the turquoise perfectly. I love the fact that her jewellery has colour and integrity and uses Fairtrade gold. I have a very busy schedule and I never feel pressured to make quick decisions, she works to my schedule.”
“It’s always a pleasure to visit India’s shop, it is a wonderfully warm, informal and friendly space. I have bought several bespoke and ready to wear pieces from India, and I wear them all the time and I always get lots of compliments.”
“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 adore India’s designs, I spent many happy hours in India’s shop and was very sad to see her disappear up north. I have commissioned India to make three or four pieces for me as well as buying lots of beautiful pieces from her shop. I always get lots of compliments when I wear India’s jewellery.”
Fairtrade Gold & Labradorite
“I love India Mahon jewellery for its 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.”
“India’s delicacy of design, eye for special detail, & unusual stones, sets her jewellery apart. It has an elegance which appeals to every age group.”
“I have bought many pieces from India’s shop, I love her unique style and attention to detail. On one of my visits – where we drink coffee and gossip – I spied a beautiful pale green emerald cushion on her desk, so we set about designing a ring for the emerald. India advised me to keep it simple and allow the emerald to sing out, it certainly does that, I LOVE it!”
Labradorite framed in 18k Yellow Gold
“Commissioned for his wife’s birthday and hung on her favourite gold chain, this captivating labradorite triangle is a stunning blue and gold, framed in 18k Fairtrade gold. This piece of labradorite originated from Canada’s Labrador Coast, the more vivid the blue, the finer the quality of stone. It was difficult to give this piece up.” - India Mahon.
“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.”
Sapphire and Diamond
“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.”
18th Century Diamond Tiara
“This was a stunning tiara brought in by a very special client. It had spent many years in its original leather box and my brief was to repair the tiara in time for her nephew’s wedding. This family heirloom was 18k yellow gold with a top layer of silver that was typical of the style of the day. I hunted down and replaced the missing old cut diamonds, cleaned and polished the tiara and made a new headband style setting. This really was a labour of love. The bride came into the shop to be shown how to fit and wear the tiara. I later heard that the tiara and the wedding were a great success.” - India Mahon.
“India designed and made a surprise engagement ring for my fiancee. I had never bought much “serious” jewellery before, I met with India and discussed my requirements and budget. She made the whole process enjoyable, easy and answered all my questions patiently and knowledgeably. Initially India showed me a couple of emeralds and some drawings. She answered my brief perfectly, and she sent me a serious of photos at each stage of the making of the ring. I popped the question just before Christmas and she said Yes and she adored the ring.”
I had great fun with the client designing and making this amazing ring stack with 28 diamonds taken from her engagement, wedding and eternity rings, to create a statement stack of modern diamond rings.
“I love them…. truly stunning piece …. that shows your quality of craftsmanship and design prowess, thank you”
Rubies & Diamonds
The client wanted a stack of easy to wear rings, she could wear one diamond ring or all 5 of the rings together.
The small “transition cut” diamonds look so much bigger and whiter in their little gold rub set collet.
Helena Diamond Rings
The client was to create something unique, elegant and very simple that she could wear all day, everyday, from her family heirloom diamonds.
Every one of the 11 diamond in this stack are a different size and shape, some date back to the Georgian/early Victorian era, and have themselves been remodelled into all nature of brooches, and rings over time.
I designed and made a very simple organic ring stack in 18ct yellow gold, with various widths of ring, each one hand textured and hammered to create a modern treasure.
Eternity ring grain set with 18 brilliant cut diamonds of various sizes, 18ct rose gold
Designed around diamonds taken from the client’s heritage jewellery
Diamond & Ruby Halo Hoop
Diamond and ruby halo hoop earrings
I designed the interlocking hoop style earrings to wear with a ruby and diamond necklace. I designed the size and weight of the main hoop to hang straight in her lobes.
The rubies were set in 4 claw settings, surrounded by bead set graduated diamonds
Sapphire & Diamond
Sapphire and diamond ring
My client wanted a contemporary ring she could wear everyday, for every occasion, including 4 diamonds taken from an heirloom eternity ring. I designed and made this ring around a cornflower blue sapphire chosen by my client rub set in 18ct white gold.
Seafoam Green Tourmaline
Seafoam green tourmaline ring
This ring was designed around a tourmaline cushion chosen by my client, rub set in 22ct gold re-worked from her heirloom wedding band.
2ct Old Cut Diamond
2ct old cut diamond, re-modelled into contemporary rub set ring in 18ct yellow gold
My client wanted a large statement ring she could wear every day, to show off diamonds that had enormous sentimental value, the diamonds from her eternity ring were bead set into this large circle ring, we call Spirit ring.
Contemporary ring to replace an outdated engagement ring, the centre is a rich gold coloured tourmaline cabochon with 2 silver rose cut diamonds, rub set into 18ct yellow gold, textured, hammered and polished so it looks like it's 'discovered' treasure.
Greek Style Band
I took 20 small rubies from an antique engagement ring and designed a contemporary Greek style ring band setting the rubies around the wreath.
Diamond & Sapphire Bangle
Small diamonds and sapphires taken from various pieces of jewellery and re-fashioned into a silver and gold bangle
