Our Head Of Jewellery Design

Sophie Lomax, Head of Jewellery Design, joined Prestons earlier this year with over a decade’s experience in fine jewellery. Sophie leads our design team in creating classic and timeless special commissions for our clients as well as hosting private appointments in our London house.

Design Inspiration

Our fine jewellery collections and commissions can take inspiration from a particular precious gemstone, a memory or an existing piece of jewellery you would like to reimagine.

Each piece combines creative design, expert craftsmanship and a selection of fine and rare diamonds and precious gemstones.

Stone Sourcing

Our diamond and gemstone buyer selects only the highest quality precious stones for our collections, one-off designs and special commissions. These stones responsibly and ethically sourced and are individually chosen for their unique qualities. Each design is created around the personality of the gemstone and, in the case of bespoke pieces, you, the intended wearer.

CAD & Technical Design

Following your appointment with us, the team at Ely Place will firstly create a design sketch, and then a more detailed 360-degree CAD rendering that brings your design to life. This offers you the opportunity to explore your design, how it will look and how your chosen precious gemstone will sit. Your design will then be handmade in our London workshop by our goldsmiths and setters, using both traditional and modern techniques.
