Neil's services were recommended to me after a chance conversation in a doctor's surgery. The lady I chatted to showed me the most beautiful bespoke ring that Neil had designed for her landmark birthday. She also gave a glowing report about his creativity, professionalism and excellent customer service. I personally experienced this and more when I took some items of jewellery that had kindly been given to me over the years, but weren't necessarily my style. I asked Neil to use these pieces to create a new, modern and unique pendant to mark my 50th birthday. I found Neil to be innovative, and a great listener. He has a 3 step process for you to check the progress of the piece, and provides regular email updates. His enthusiasm and passion is both reassuring and exciting and the beautiful pendant that he created was testament to his unquestionable skill. I was absolutely delighted with the process and the end masterpiece. I am now looking for other pre loved pieces in my collection for Neil to recreate.

Neil was great from start to finish. Really helped to guide me through the whole process of designing and refining the engagement and wedding rings we were looking for. The end product is perfect and just what we wanted. Neil provides a great service with constant communication along the way, can't recommend him enough!

I - MEET THE MASTER JEWELLER (very relaxed) You’re at the Neil Rayment Studio in Cardiff Bay to discuss commissioning a custom piece of jewellery that will mark a special occasion. Your master maker is brimming with knowledge and ideas, and takes time to listen closely to yours. You feel inspired and at ease. You, Neil and your partner plan your design over fresh coffee, Welsh cakes and jazz music. II - THE UNIQUE JEWELLERY DESIGN A week or so later, you receive a 3D image of your design, along with an invite for feedback. Neil uses a fusion of craftsmanship and cutting edge technology. It’s exciting to see a preview before the finished piece is made. It’s just what you hoped for. III - Handcrafted Jewellery Your master maker goes to work. He consults the design blueprint to ensure he’s making exactly the right piece for you. You receive a wax master preview, allowing you to see and feel just how your jewellery will look. Once you’ve approved the master, your maker carefully selects brilliant gems from the diamond quarter in Antwerp. He sets the jewels and shapes the precious metal in his workshop. IV - Your Jewelleries Story Begins Each piece of exquisite Neil Rayment jewellery is part of a story. You’re thrilled with the finished item and the whole experience has been a special one. You receive your very own handmade jewellery beautifully boxed and delivered in around six weeks. It comes complete with certifications and photographs, ready for your special occasion. The story of the jewellery continues with you.
