Commissions are a big part of our service here at Alexis Dove and we love to source rare and unusual gemstones. We can create a unique piece of jewellery specifically for you either in Gold, Palladium or Platinum from a design that you have in mind or from one of our existing pieces.
If you are keen to commission an engagement ring from Alexis then you are in the right place! Professional magpie, Alexis, loves collecting beautiful stones and takes great pleasure in finding the right colour and cut for your ring.
Diamonds are always a popular choice for an engagement ring and Alexis has a vast array of different styles to tempt you with! From old cuts, rose cuts and of course brilliant cuts we have a diamond that will always be special to you.
Alexis specializes in old cut and rose cut diamonds and they look stunning in her unique and pretty designs.
Among Alexis’ favourite stones are Sapphires, which come in a huge array of colours (not just blue!) from pink, violet and lilac to petrol blues and greens.
Rubies, especially rose cut in a cushion shape are a popular choice. Star Rubies are an amazing stone that reflects a star shaped light effect once cut. Featured on our site is a star Ruby in a beautiful tone…a must see stone!
Another huge Alexis Dove favourite is Labarodite. This soft grey colour works really well with the metals that we use. An unusual combination we love is labarodite with yellow gold.
Spinel, Tourmaline, Opal and Padparadscha are all examples of beautiful stones that can be used in your ring but we are also open to ideas and if you have stones your own Alexis can make you something lovely with them!
If you have an old piece of jewellery or family heirloom that you would like re-modelling, this is a service can provide. Bring in your beloved jewellery and we can see what we can do for you..
Gold, Palladium and Platinum bands can have detail added or specific widths made upon request.
