Incorporate a piece of history in your jewellery at The Goldsmithy

Father and son traditional goldsmiths and watchmakers can give your family heirlooms a new lease of life at their Stony Stratford shop.

Family heirlooms are priceless. Treasures that can be passed down through generations.

So, what if we told you there was a way you could incorporate a piece of heritage into a new bespoke piece of jewellery, engagement ring or wedding band?

If you have an heirloom sat in the back of a drawer at home, The Goldsmithy can transform it into something you’ll wear – retaining the sentiment but creating a jewellery piece that is completely unique.

This could include a stone from a necklace that is no longer worn which could be hand-crafted into a beautiful ring and passed down through the generations once again.

As the month of the Royal Wedding is upon us, why not use an heirloom to create a one-of-a-kind engagement ring or wedding band like Prince Harry, who designed Meghan Markle’s ring using diamonds from Princess Diana’s jewellery collection.

This is a lovely way of being able to use your sentimental heirloom in a ring you will wear every day, for the rest of your life.

A big misconception is that bespoke jewellery will cost more than a high street jeweller, but this isn’t the case.

If you have a budget in mind, Glenn and Paul can work to this and create a beautiful unique piece from their impressive workshop in Stony Stratford.

As an ethical company, Glenn and Paul enjoy the recycling of old jewellery and can melt down metal you bring in to use in your new jewellery piece.

This not only helps keeps cost down, but means you hold onto the sentimental value that an off-the-shelf product doesn’t have.

The Goldsmithy also offers you the chance to help with the making of your piece by coming into the workshop to take to the bench – something very few other jewellery workshops do.

This is a fantastic experience in itself, alongside receiving your finished commission.
