Bespoke Jewellery

You may have heard that we have created some beautiful handmade bespoke engagement ring and wedding rings for Irish celebrities and influencers. Recently we have gotten lots of inquiries about bespoke jewellery. So we put together this blog to let you know about the process and what it entails.

Here at Rocks Jewellers we carry a unique collection of beautiful rings that will catch your eye and fit within your budget. However, we are happy to help you bring your own vision of a perfect diamond ring to life. Our bespoke jewellery is designed and carefully handcrafted in our Dublin based workshop.

So here are the steps of designing and creating your perfect ring:

Firstly, contact us by calling in store or make an appointment to discuss your ideas and requirements.  Feel free to bring pictures, sketches; anything you have with you to the appointment.  We also have a wide selection of jewellery that we can take ideas from.

Following your first appointment a CAD image is created.  CAD images are computer generated designs which we use to show you what your bespoke ring is going to look like. These Images include views from the top, side and bottom.  We are still able to make modifications at this stage.

Once you approved the CAD images, we will make a wax mould.  The wax is made in the exact dimensions of the ring that we are creating.

Following this we get started on making the ring in the metal of your choice and setting the diamonds. The ring is them cleaned and polished.

The goldsmith has one last look over the bespoke ring to ensure it is finished to perfection. The whole design and creation process take approximately 4 – 6 weeks.

If you would like us to design and create a bespoke ring or piece of jewellery for you, please get in contact with us by making an appointment or calling in to out Grafton Street or Stillorgan stores.

Insuring Your Precious Possesions

Your favourite pieces of jewellery are more than valuable possessions; they are a reflection of who you are, your feelings for loved ones and lifelong relationships. So protecting them from theft, accidental damage or even a mysterious disappearance is important, especially after spending time selecting the all-important engagement ring.

Think of all your valued possessions whether it is your engagement ring or an heirloom necklace given to you by your grandmother….these pieces should not be locked away. At Rocks we believe these pieces should be worn, loved and enjoyed!

This is why jewellery insurance is so important; however this can be daunting and complicated process if you don’t know how. So we have come up with a guide on how to go about insuring your precious pieces and your all-important engagement ring.

A majority of people insure their jewellery and engagement ring under their household insurance policy. Renters and home owners policies cover your home contents, however only up to a certain value. When insuring any jewellery or an engagement ring above €1000 you are required to have a valuation and an appraisal carried out.

Expensive items like engagement rings and other precious jewellery can be guaranteed through specified personal property insurance policy extension that covers particular items as a group or they can be specified and insured individually, this is just an extension to your existing content policy. Not to worry if you do not have a home contents policy. Many brides- to- be insure their rings under their parents’ home content policy. However be sure to check with the insurance company this is allowed.

If you do not have renters or home owners policy, another option is to insure your jewellery through a company that specialises in jewellery insurance. These companies may offer more coverage than a standard home owner policy.  Chubb Insurance Company, are the leading insurance company for Jewellery and privately owned fine art across Europe.

An insurance policy is a way of honouring not just the financial value but also what the jewellery represents.

All important questions to ask before you choose a policy:

  1. Is the ring/jewellery covered if you lose it accidentally, or only if it’s stolen?
  2. How will the company replace the ring/jewellery? Check with the insurance company if they will make a cheque payable to you, If yes, ask for this in writing as most insurance companies try not to give you a straight answer; Or will they require you to purchase a replacement through a specified jeweller? Ensure that the jewellery being replaced is up to standard and the correct quality.
  3. Ask your insurance company how they handle repairs.
  4. What if it’s a vintage ring or other unique piece? How will the quality and size of your diamond and that of a replacement if needed be documented?
  5. Is the ring insured to full cost or a fraction of the cost?
  6. How will you need to prove the ring has been lost if you make a claim?
  7. Are there any circumstances that aren’t covered?

So when you have decided if you are going to purchase insurance for your precious pieces here is some things to keep in mind.

1. Shop around and there may be room for some negotiation with the insurance company.

2. Do not over insure you engagement ring or jewellery as there are no benefits, over insuring results in you paying a much higher premium which most insurance companies will gladly accept.

3. If your engagement ring or jewellery is lost or stolen, most insurance companies now replace the ring or write a cheque for the replacement value, they generally do not write a cheque for the insurance value.

4. Many insurance companies require the ring or jewellery to be kept in a safe if they are over a certain value when not being worn, if valued at €13k or above on average, which can be another expense to keep in mind.

— Rocking @ Baselworld 2012 —

BASELWORLD 2012 DID NOT DISAPPOINT FOR ROCKS JEWELLERS

Michael, Victor and Robert Rock attending a CK Party at Baselworld 2012

Baselworld is the world’s largest watch and jewellery trade fair for watch and jewellery enthusiasts, offering up everything from popularly-priced mass market peices to exquisite one off’s – and Rocks Jewellers were there to ensure our customers will be getting the most on trend, best quality and most popular brands and products on the market today.

“Overall the experience was amazing” says Robert Rock, “ We got to see first hand what’s going to be happening down the line in jewellery and watches and we are happy to report Rocks  Jewellers are ahead of the game and in position to deliver everything that the customer will want.”

Some of the feedback from the show was as follows:-

Jewellery Trends

For jewellery, Rocks Jewellers noticed some real trends emerging at the fair and the good news is these are all available at Rocks Jewellers. Some of the most important trends included:

BlueThe colour blue coordinates well with the colour of the year for the fashion houses which is orange. From sapphire blue, aquamarine and topaz, Rocks have many of the items in store including Links of London, Tresor Paris, Thomas Sabo, Pandora and Rocks.

Jade. Pandora unveiled nephrite jade pieces in a collection of pendants, rings and earrings. All very unique and apparently their popularity is due to grow and grow this year so watch this space. Also one of our own – a stunning vintage Jade peice from Rocks also fits the bill.

Orange. The Pantone Colour Institute’s Colour of the Year was evident at the high and low ends — from topaz, garnets to cz’s — and should continue to grow in popularity throughout 2012. Thomas Sabo and Tresor Paris really have gotten hold of this trend.

PearlsFrom freshwater to cultured, pearls are becoming a prevalent choice for focal points in jewellery. Rocks Jewellers Chic Collection has developed a collection that satisfies this trend really well with attractive pricing coupled with exceptional quality and choice. Check them out! Let’s not forget Links of London and Paul Costelloe who have also done a great job introducing pearls into their collections.

One-Of-A-Kinds. People love uniqueness and while many of the most popular brands cannot gaurantee uniqueness some of the larger jewellery houses can, as statement peices. We at Rocks have so many unique peices due to have an unrivalled vintage and antique collection in store and online.

Watches

One standout watch brand is Seiko, with their new Solar watch, the impressive timepiece, powered by solar cells in the dial eliminating the need for batteries, can adjust itself to the time and location of the world’s 39 time zones at the gentle push of a button, thanks to signals from at least four GPS satellites, which the watch is always in contact. It is the first timepiece able to adapt immediately to all of the world’s time zones, wherever the wearer travels. That’s why Seiko calls it “the first global watch.”

“Overall we were delighted to be part of the fair and it will help us ensure we are ahead of the game when it comes to delivering the best jewellery to our customers now and way into the future.”
