Discover Prestons Manufacture & Craftsmanship

Stone Sourcing

Our diamond and gemstone buyer responsibly selects only the highest quality precious stones for our collections, bespoke designs and special commissions, individually assessing each diamond or gemstone that is considered for jewellery manufactured at 8 Ely Place.

Mounting & Assembly

Our team of expert mounters seamlessly combine their skills with modern technology to handcraft our fine jewellery collections. The team utilise their decades of experience, working closely with our jewellery designers throughout each stage to ensure the client’s needs are met and that every piece is finished to the highest quality.


The careful process of setting stones requires patience and years’ worth of experience, skills shared by our in-house expert setters at 8 Ely Place. Each diamond or precious stone within our collections is set by hand in London.


At the final stage of the manufacture process, our experts use machines and hand-held tools to polish each piece of fine jewellery, removing uneven surfaces and revealing the natural lustre of the precious metal, ready to be presented in our showrooms or to our client. Each design is stamped with the our hallmark and finished with a 'Made In London' seal, as a guarantee that it meets the highest quality standards.
