FAQ

Who does the jewellery design work?

Me, myself and I…Lindsay. I do it all from start to finish.

Where is the jewellery made?

The whole process is down at my studio in Ravenshead, Notts.

How long will it take to make?

Most rings take 3 to 4 months, complicated designs a little longer. However, I am flexible and happy to discuss with you if there are other timeframes you’re working to.

Does Lou Lou Jewellery have a shop?

Everything takes place at my gallery and studio which is easy to find with parking in the court yard. It is open to the public but you are required to make an appointment which normally lasts about an hour, at no cost or commitment.

Can you copy a ring from a picture I have / I know exactly what I want?

I won’t copy other people’s designs but am happy to see the sort of thing you like. It’s best to come and talk to me and I promise you’ll end up with the perfect piece for you.

I know the sort of thing I want, can you tell me how much it will cost?

Contact me and/or make an appointment and I will be able to tell you how much your ideal ring will cost or help you adapt your design to suit your budget.

Will you need to send my engagement ring away?

All design work is done in front of you in my workshop and gallery. Your engagement ring won’t need to be sent away or kept in my possession.

Can I have engraving on the inside?

Yes absolutely. See the what I make page

Can you melt up the metal from an old ring to incorporate in my new design?

Yes, you can come and watch while I do this or not. I take lots of photos so you’ll be able to see the whole process.

Can we choose our own diamond?

I am happy to source a number of stones of differing size and quality within your specified budget for you to choose from.

When and how do I pay for my bespoke jewellery?

When we agree on a design then a 50% deposit is charged with the balance due on completion. We accept credit/debit cards & bank transfers.

What if the ring doesn't fit or I am unhappy with something?

This is your special ring and I will always correct something which is not right to ensure your ring is exactly what you want.

Do you make rings from titanium?

No. Titanium is a very unworkable precious metal which means it won’t resize, mend or be worked easily. This makes it very unsuitable for rings and jewellery which is designed to last a lifetime and will inevitable need resizing from time to time.
