Bespoke Jewellery



Devanet® undertake special commissions for bespoke jewellery gifts and products, ranging from cufflinks, pendants, pin badges, buckles, letter openers, wedding gifts, sentimental keepsakes, birthsign gifts and anything made from solid brass - crystals - cabochons to make the bespoke jewellery a collection piece for the recipient.

From the design idea of a bespoke piece of jewellery starts with a clear brief of the customers idea, the design using innovative modelling software to the machining of one or more elements to make up the final pieces.


Once the machining is complete, several stages are designed to ready the bespoke jewellery pieces for final plating in real silver or 24 carat gold. In some cases the jewellery is adorned with dazzling inlays of Swarovski® Crystals or Cabochons or items supplied by the customer of sentimental value.


Many customers from individuals to corporate clients require bespoke jewellery gifts which are treasured, Devanet® endeavour to capture this uniqueness in the design.


The end results is a bespoke peice of jewellery that is exclusively made for each customer

Wooden Cross

The story is true and starts with a request to create a series of 8 elements which could be given as gifts to siblings and dad as small keepsakes in remembrance of their late mother.

The emphasis was to capture each piece and place it into a holder.

The very nature of the 8 divisions was such that Devanet® decided to create 8 pieces of jewellery that when put together formed the shape of the orginal cross.

The next stage was firstly to cut the cross into sections and thin it down to a size that would enable each piece to fit into a precision milled holder.


After the wood was carefully cut, a template was made and milled in brass to ensure the complex shapes fitted and adjusted to each template so that the pieces dropped into the brass.

The template was designed with a built in ring so that a chain, jump ring or lobster claw could be attached as required.

Cross Part 3

Having adjusted the templates and re run the design, the solid brass bar was precisioned milled to the shapes with a recess to house the wooden components. Each part was profile cut ready for tumbling and polishing.


The recess was checked for fitting and processed through three finishing stages to prepare for silver plating for the males and rose gold plating for the ladies.


Each part was then plated in real silver and 24 carat gold and final polish,

Cross part 6

Each piece had a special message that had to be applied to the back of the solid brass item.

A high speed galvo laser had to be used as the text was small and it was necessary to deep engrave the items at the same time achieving a high resolution to the engraving.

Devanet® have several inhouse lasers and engraving machines to engrave intricate and detailed text and logos to substrates.

Cross part 5

Each piece of the cross was carefully sanded, with varying grits to first remove the ink marks and then to achieve a smooth blemish free surface.


The wooden pieces were then coated with Danish oil to preserve the wood, each piece was matched to the metal holders and then inserted into the plated pieces. The pieces were then fixed with a special flexible adhesive so that if the wood expanded or contracted they would remain fixed in the plated holders.

Cross part 7

The final pieces completed, polished and ready for the customer to come to our showroom and collect in time for Mothers Day.
