The Art of Jewellery Illustration

Rare and refined jewellery deserves only the finest representation. And while we love this digital age with its intricate CAD designs and 3D models, they are no comparison for a hand drawn illustration. Illustrations capture the imagination and bring our bespoke jewellery to life in a way that no computer screen ever could. A wonderful part of our bespoke design process, our illustrations often become as cherished as the jewellery pieces themselves.

Understanding is at the heart of bespoke design, which is why we begin our process with an in-depth consultation. During our chat we uncover what makes the wearer tick, their personal style, inspirations, likes and dislikes and their story so far.

After we get a feel for the soul behind the commission, the next step is to create initial sketches – a series of ballpoint designs to capture our ideas for the intended piece. From here the design is refined until we feel confident the essence of the piece is in place. We then start work creating a precise scale drawing, ensuring every detail is correct. This illustration showcases the planned colours of gemstones and metals as well as intricate elements such as settings.

With a clear idea of how their finished piece could appear, we take this opportunity to discuss any final changes and ensure each and every element of the design is absolutely perfect.

This hand drawn image forms a treasured part of the commission process for many of our clients, a work of art which tells the story of their bespoke jewellery journey.
