Meet The Team

This afternoon I thought I would share with you a few pictures of our Jewellery makers, Joe McGarr and Greg McLeary, also our wonderfully cheerful Les Pettet our Gem setter. They all work together in our fully functioning workshop in Birmingham's Jewellery Quarter to make top quality custom jewellery.

From the moment you open the door into our showroom you are able to see right into the workshop. This is where all your fabulous made to order jewellery is made, set and polished!

Joe and Greg pride themselves on making fine quality, tailor made jewellery for the public. So the workshop needed to be the main feature of the shop. The glass window offers a unique perspective, it allows our customers to see for themselves where all the magic happens!

The guys are usually working through current jobs and when they are not busy doing that they would usually be designing and making new designs for the showroom. Platinum engagement rings using Certified diamonds and wedding bands are usually what Element Bespoke Jewellery is known for. However in the workshop we get all manor of orders for specialist one off commissions. You may have already seen our bangle post on the Case Study post..

Along side working with Certified diamonds, we also produce coloured Gemstone jewellery using the finest stones sourced from all around the world. Each piece of our jewellery is created first by looking at the stones, the design is decided upon to fit the actual shape and size of each unique natural stone.

When it comes to the metals used in the workshop to create our hand crafted jewellery we use 18ct white,  yellow and rose gold, Palladium and Platinum. Every piece of jewellery is polished in our polishing room onsite. This is how we can offer to refinish jewellery made by us for free for life.

Included in this band of Merry Men is Les Pettet, our master stone setter. Les has years of experience setting tailor made jewellery. His years of experience are obvious when you inspect any of our stone set bespoke pieces.

All together the team here at Element Bespoke Jewellery work really well together and all of our customers get the best service available safe in the knowledge that all of our work is carried out in.
