How beautiful are these necklaces?

This client came to Jewellers Vault with sentimental gold and an idea.

It was her vision to create 4 necklaces for her four children, each one set with a sentimental diamond and created from sentimental gold.

What an amazing piece for each of her children to cherish, and you know what else? Each pendant has a little secret!

Each pendant is hand engraved on the back! Such a perfect gift for your children right?

The thing I love most about pieces like this is how no matter how far and wide their lives take them, each child is forever connected to the others and their mother by their jewellery. Regardless of kilometers of years, each child will always be reminded of their loved ones by one piece of jewellery.

Thank you for choosing Jewellers Vault to bring your idea to life.

Do you remember the story of the imperfect heart pendant?

The story goes a little along the lines of how the client saw a drawing of a perfectly imperfect heart and feel so much in love with it, that she had it tattooed on her wrist. The idea is that life isn't perfect, love isn't perfect and we aren't perfect but there is immense beauy in that. A remarkable beauty that transcends the idea of perfection and is all the more appealing because of the flaws. A lot like us, our lives and our loves.

After we created her heart in gold, the client returned with a silver heart ring and some gold (the rings and bracelet). While drawn to the heart shape, the ring was so thin and flimsy it constantly bent out of shape.

We decided to make something thicker and sturdier out of the client’s sentimental gold. And we made it imperfect, to compliment her pendant. A wonderful use for her sentimental gold and a stunning piece to add to her collection of meaningful jewellery.

What about the earrings, you ask? Well, they were created in the same image of an imperfect heart, each one set with a special diamond. And while the client kept one, the other was sent all the way to Germany for her Mum to treasure!

Thank you for choosing Jewellers Vault to create such individual and sentimental pieces!

Do you have old jewellery that you don’t wear?

Jewellery that is sitting in the bottom of a jewellery box somewhere.

What is the point of it sitting there gathering dust when you could have it made into a fantastic new piece that you will want to wear?

This client came to Jewellers Vault with exactly this thought!

She brought in her old jewellery, we went through some design ideas and chatted about her style which led to us creating this stunning design together! A huge bonus for this client is that there are no more claws for her to worry about catching and breaking off, if you look closely at the before photo, you’ll notice there are some holes where diamonds used to be!

What a lovely way to turn sentimental jewellery that you don’t wear anymore into something you’ll want to wear every day!

Thank you for trusting Jewellers Vault to bring your design to life!

The tradition of handing down sentimental jewellery from generation to generation is one that has been around for hundreds, if not thousands of years.



It’s such a special moment when you are handed something as special as a piece of jewellery, treasured by your ancestors, that is now entrusted to you.



Jewellers Vault was trusted to create this loving couple’s wedding rings a few years ago and when they found out their family of two was about to become three, they again reached out to Jewellers Vault for the next special piece of family jewellery.



The client had the wonderful idea of creating a special ring to wear from the moment her son was born, to eventually hand down to him.



The engraving on the ring comes from the design of the client’s wedding ring, which was originally inspired by engraving on a treasured family ring, designed to complement the wedding ring but not overpower it. The trick with this ring was to balance the femininity with masculinity, so both mother and son can wear the ring.



Emeralds are known as a symbol of truth and love and believed to be a source of eternal life by the Egyptians. The vivid green of an emerald is said to evoke feelings of abundance and is associated with refreshment, peace, rest and security.



Such a wonderful choice of stone for a mother to give her son.

They all are absolutely beautiful 😍

I love how 'delicate' this ring is and how the stone stands out! Yes, handing down jewellery is a powerful legacy to leave someone. It's sentimental AND valuable with ongoing value to share. GREAT work, Jewellers Vault - LOVE it!

Omg how beautiful is that 😍

Oh they are beautiful ❤️

Beautiful

Have you ever had jewellery made and it didn’t turn out the way you expected?

Sadly, it’s a story we hear quite often. There seems to be quite a bit of lost communication when you don’t get to speak to the person who will actually make your jewellery. There also seems to be a discussion without drawings or pictures, just a discussion, then the piece is made but somewhere along the way alterations are conducted but someone forgot to tell the client.

At Jewellers Vault, we work differently. You sit with the jeweller and discuss your ideas. You can pick their brain, ask any questions you like while we figure out your style and work on ideas together.

The next phase of a design is the drawing, yes, we old school hand draw ideas for you in true size. Over the years we have discovered that this method gives the client the clearest idea of how their jewellery will look. Plus, as an old school handmake workshop, is there any other way?

It’s because of these methods that we can help clients who have had a bad experience elsewhere. Just like this client.

Her ring never quite looked the way she wanted, so when she decided to redesign it, she decided that she would create one ring from her engagement and wedding set. She added in some extra gold from a single earring too.
And Voila. Here we have it, the new ring!
