HOW DO I BOOK AN APPOINTMENT?
You can send us a message and we will get back to you or use the timely booking form here. We will confirm your appointment subject to availability and you'll receive an email confirmation.
WHAT HAPPENS AT A DESIGN CONSULTATION?
We use the initial appointment to get an idea of what you want us to design for you. We will talk about you, your partner and what her/his interests are. We might ask questions like "What clothes do they wear?" and "What do you get up to in your spare time?" We will use the information to work out what style of ring would be suitable. We will work closely with you to produce a cool engagement ring design. We can talk you through all the material options and gemstone options and we can also have a chat about budgets and anything else that you have in mind. Our appointments normally take around 45 minutes so please leave an hour free.
I DON'T LIVE NEAR YOU - CAN WE WORK REMOTELY?
Yes, I've worked with customers all over the UK and abroad. We can arrange a telephone consultation, Facetime or Zoom appointment. When the ring is ready I can send it to you via Royal Mail or a courier.
WHAT HAPPENS AFTER MY CONSULTATION?
It can vary from customer to customer but our normal process follows this pattern:
- Initial Consultation - In person or over the telephone or on Skype. Quote and Concept Sketch - Either emailed or in person.
- CAD images (Life-like images of your engagement ring design).
- Production - leave it with me!
- Collection - Normally dispatched via Royal Mail or a courier.
WHAT SHOULD I HAVE READY FOR A DESIGN APPOINTMENT?
If you have seen ring designs you like save your images to show at your appointment or share them ahead of your appointment via email. If you don't know what you want yet - don't worry we can talk you through every stage. It's good to have thought about the following things before your appointment:
- What material do I want it to be made in?
- Does she like white metals or yellow metal?
- What colour are her existing pieces of jewellery?
- What is your budget?
- How much do you want to spend and what had you imagined you would spend on an engagement ring?
- Do you know her ring size?
- Does she wear any rings at the moment?
- Could you borrow a ring so we can take a quick size measurement?
WHAT MATERIALS DO YOU MAKE RINGS IN?
Platinum, White Gold, Yellow Gold and Rose Gold. We also make our wedding rings in Stainless Steel and Titanium over on our sister website www.sheffieldsteelrings.co.uk.
We also have ethical jewellery options such as ethically sourced gemstones and ethically sourced diamonds. We can make our designs in Fair trade Gold too.
We make gold engagement rings, white gold engagement rings, rose gold engagement rings, yellow gold engagement rings and platinum engagement rings.
Whether you're looking for a hipster engagement ring, a boho engagement ring, a vintage engagement ring or a modern engagement ring you've come to the right place.
We can make our Engagement rings in Fair Trade Yellow and White Gold. We love creating ethical ring designs.
WHAT GEMSTONES CAN WE USE IN YOUR DESIGNS?
We can source many different gemstones for your design and have a large selection of stones in stock for you to browse.
We have created rings with Tanzanites, Morganites, Sapphires, Garnets, Rubies, Mossanites, Amethysts, Tsavourites and many more. We love creating sapphire engagement rings, diamond ring designs and boutique engagement rings. Don't forget diamonds can come in different colours too.
We love black diamond engagement rings and coloured diamond engagement rings! We often create non-diamond engagement rings using different gemstones - when diamonds don't do it for you why not add in some colour blue sapphire engagement rings look amazing too!
WHAT STYLE OF RINGS CAN YOU CREATE?
You name it, we can make it! We have made modern, contemporary and vintage engagement rings. We have produced solitaire designs, trilogy (three stone) rings, halo engagement rings, multi stone engagement rings and we can use many different types of diamond cut gemstones such as cushion cut, emerald, princess, brilliant cut diamonds.
Jessica loves to create pear shaped engagement rings and Emerald cut engagement rings to name a few - unusual engagement rings are our favourite! We also love creating unusual engagement rings, quirky engagement rings and alternative engagement rings - get in touch with your idea and we will take it from there! We can personalise your ring design using different gemstones, setting styles, materials and we can engrave special messages too.
Our studio is the home of unique wedding rings and engagement rings. Personalised engagement rings can come in many styles and we can walk you through all the options. We also offer engravings too to finish off your personalised engagement ring - why not pop her nick name on the inside of the ring or a special phrase to make it even more unique?
DO I NEED TO PAY FOR A QUOTATION?
No, our quotes are absolutely free of charge and there's no obligation to buy. We sometimes do design concept sketches to check we are on the same page design wise at the quotation stage.
Next we move to the CAD design stage where we make life like images for you to view. Once you're happy with the design at that stage we will move into production. The beauty of our process is that you can change your design at lots of different stages and visualise it before we have made the engagement ring.

“We cannot recommend Jess highly enough. She bespoke designed and made my wife’s engagement ring and then a year later our wedding bands. The whole process was very smooth and enjoyable (even through the slightly nerve-racking time of choosing an engagement ring). Jess is incredibly welcoming and we have had great service from start to finish. If you are looking for unique jewellery and help to bring ideas into reality look no further!” — Joe Stone "5 stars Review" Facebook Jessica Flinn Jewellery Boutique & Studio
“I really can’t recommend Jessica enough, she recently designed and made the engagement ring for my partner, and the service was brilliant, friendly, professional and extremely helpful for someone who wasn’t entirely sure what he wanted! The final product is absolutely stunning, and my partner loves it!” — Toby Meek "5 Star Review" Facebook Jessica Flinn Jewellery Boutique & Studio
“Having Helens engagement ring made by Jess was fantastic. I had a rough idea of what I wanted; she took those ideas and turned them into absolute perfection. It’s a stunning piece and Helen adores it! Thank you Jess, so much, for making my dreams (about the ring and asking Helen to marry me) come true!” — Andrew Wardlaw "5 Star Review" Facebook Jessica Flinn Jewellery Boutique & Studio
ASK ME ANYTHING
WHAT DO YOU LOVE DESIGNING THE MOST?
I love designing Unusual Engagement Rings. When I first went into creating my own designer jewellery I started off making pieces in Silver and Stainless Steel. I ended up making the same design, over and over whereas the engagement rings I make are always one of a kind and it's much more varied this way. The custom rings are definitely my favourite part of my job.
WHAT WAS YOUR MOST MEMORABLE RING DESIGN?
When I think back through all the rings I've designed my most memorable was a Black Diamond Engagement Ring which we designed for a client in 2015. I love Black diamond engagement rings as they're so unusual. I surrounded the black diamond with a halo of white diamonds in a platinum band. It was gorgeous!
WHAT'S YOUR ENGAGEMENT RING LIKE?
I have a Platinum Engagement Ring with a large Cognac coloured diamond. I re-design it every few years and I feel my next engagement ring design version brewing!
HOW DID YOU GET INTO JEWELLERY DESIGN?
I studied a BA in Metalwork and Jewellery at Sheffield Hallam University and that's where it all started. I now have 12 years experience in the industry and have been running my own business for 9 years.
