Hugh completed a Jewellery apprenticeship at the Design Centre in Enmore in 2016, and since then has developed into a very good competent Jeweller. He is always looking to improve his knowledge and skill set by working in challenging new environments.

Since then, he has brought back new skills into the Sydney studio which are used on an international scale.

This is why we have created a bespoke custom made service which provides beautiful jewellery to fit anyones personal taste. Scroll down to read all about how this creative process works.

How does our bespoke service
Here is our step to step guide to having a unique piece of jewellery made for you.
CHOOSING YOUR STONE
At GARY THYREGOD JEWELLERY, we have a lovely selection of gemstones available for you to choose from in our studio, or we are happy to source a selection of gemstones from elsewhere to ensure you are choosing one which is perfect for you. If you already have your own existing gemstone, this can be used also.
Once you have your perfect gemstone, the design stage can begin to create a beautiful piece of jewellery.
Once you have your gemstone, you will have a consultation with Gary to discuss your design ideas and your personal taste. Gary will then be able to start sketching and bring your ideas to life. Gary has showcase cabinets of finished jewellery pieces that you may be asked to try on, to get a sense of what you like if you aren't too sure on which style suits you. You will also discuss your thoughts on which materials you would like. At GARY THYREGOD JEWELLERY, we think this initial stage of bringing together your ideas shouldn't be rushed, and it may take more than one consultation to gather all of your ideas and to come up with a design which suits you.
Once you are completely satisfied with your design, GARY THYREGOD JEWELLERY will ask you to approve it and pay a deposit. Once this has all been approved, the custom made piece will begin production. Please ask Gary about the production time of your piece as all of our custom made jewellery is different. To create a piece of jewellery which will last for generations takes time and requires expert hand making skills by a professional. This is why the usual minimum time period is 4 weeks, depending on the complexity of the design.
Collect and adore your original custom made piece hand crafted by GARY THYREGOD JEWELLERY!
