    We don’t often see UK jewellers work here on PS, so I thought I’d start a thread for a very talented and creative independent UK jeweller I really like the work of.
    So here are some of the stunning designs made by Hatton Garden Bespoke Diamond Jewellery Workshop (HG Bespoke), a talented independent jeweller in London, UK.

    Please add photos of your own HG Bespoke pieces. I think it’s great to support independent jewellers who traditionally hand make everything and are incredibly talented and creative.
    Hope you enjoy them :appl:


    PS. I have no business connection to him, I’m just an admirer of his jewellery.

    Here’s a couple of pendants and some beautifully colourful earrings.
    I adore that middle pendant...wow!

    Absolutely love the Sapphire and Diamond trio ring and the Blue Diamond (?heated) in the white Diamond Halo .
    Such a talented craftsman and so creative, how do jewellers make such wonderful things from bits of metal and pretty stones!

    Those swoopy claw prongs on the sapphire(?) in the three-stone ring are amazing!

    Also, paging @Matthews1127 for the EC eternity! :)

    I have been following him via his FB page since reading about him via PS for nearly a year.

    Does anyone know if he works with client-supplied materials please, like diamonds and CSs?

    Thanks in advance.

    He doesn’t like to work with outside stones, but he does now have a bench jeweller that he employs to reset outside stones. So technically he will take your stones, but you won’t get a ring made by him himself, but rather a more basic ring. He likes to craft from scratch & part of that experience is sourcing stones with you. But he’s a great guy & will always go the extra mile for a sentimental piece, so you should always ask.

    Also, I am not affiliated with HGB either, as @Hounddog has stated. I have known this chap for many years & he made my full eternity ring that is in my avatar. The workmanship & weight of this ring is amazing :love: I am lucky enough to have also referred friends to him, so have been able to see first hand many of the beautiful pieces pictured on his page.

    Also, for those UK PSers who will know who I am talking about, HGB made the engagement, wedding & eternity ring set for Emily Andre, wife of Peter. It was under wraps for a while, but he ok’d it to go public a couple of years ago. Can’t currently find a clear picture though, but they are also in his gallery on his page.

    What, you mean those abs never made it famous out of the UK?! The video for Mysterious Girl was a defining feature of my younger years!

    I love HG's work and follow his FB page. I believe he also made Pippa Middleton's Asscher cut halo engagement ring. He is super responsive to messages too.

    I’m so pleased everyone is really enjoying his work. :appl:
    Thanks for all the feedback Oohshiny, Matthews1127 and lissyflo.

    Thanks for asking dk168, I think Alex is correct, he prefers to do the complete piece with people, but you can always message him and ask. He’s got a FB Page under Hatton Garden Bespoke Diamond Jewellery Workshop, I’ll try and add a link.

    You may know this already, but just incase, I’ll mention that Hatton Garden is a famous jewellery area/quarter in London and there are many shops and jewellers there, many of which use the ‘Hatton Garden’ in their names for the kudos the place lends. So please make such you’re looking at the correct Hatton Garden BDJW (aka HG Bespoke) as I can’t personally recommend anyone else and I’d hate you to go to the wrong person!

    Thanks for the info Alex T. I had heard about HG making Peter Andres wife’s ring, lucky Mrs Andre. I saw some publicity in a magazine about it a while ago.
    I believe HG has made pieces of jewellery for other ‘famous people’, but as he has often has to do ‘confidential work’ and is totally honourable, he’s never posted anything about who they are.

    Hi Missy, so glad you like them, I’ve enjoyed reading lots of your posts.

    Hi Blingismything, great to hear from you. Wow... that’s new information. I’ve never heard that about Pippas ring.
    I know HG has made things that are similar to it, but I had no idea! I presumed it had come from one of the big ‘world famous’ brands eg from Bond Street etc. I’ll try and find out more, was it listed on a website or in a magazine somewhere?

    Thanks everyone, I’m so pleased you’re appreciating his craftsmanship as much as I do. He seems to be able to everything jewellery related with expertise and panache

    I don’t think he made Pippa’s ring. He did an EXTREMELY similar ring, but it was smaller if you compare pics of his finished piece versus the knuckle duster Pippa wears. Personally I preferred HG’s version as Pippa’s is a bit too big & gaudy for me.

    Thanks for clarifying that Alex T.
    As it’s an important question and I don’t want to mislead anyone having started this thread, I did ask him about Pippas ring, he said he would have loved to have done it, but it wasn’t his. He has however done equally high calibre rings for clients.

    1346DCA7-572A-49BC-8769-AE6A417E1093.jpeg Thought I’d add a few three stone rings of different sorts. There’s a more unusual ‘gothic’ style one in there too for anyone who likes someth8ng a bit different.

Personally I love the Diamond Pear with halo set and the Blue Stone ring (?Aquamarine, must check!) with Blue (Heated) Diamond halo.

    A Ruby and Diamond target ring, a large Princess with a halo and an absolutely stunning Trilliant/Trillion with halo again (personally I love this one too).

    Here’s a beautiful simple pendant.
    Also a “twinkling like mad” ‘down colour’ central Diamond ring with beautiful swooping and straight design lines.

    This is possibly one of my absolute top three favourite rings made by HG. I’d love one just like this, wouldn’t ask to change a single thing!
    Definitely on my Dream Wish list :love: I love Asschers....and Cushions.

    Pippa Middleton has a similar one, but hers was not made by HG (as mentioned earlier). Actually from the images of hers online, I much prefer this one.
