Maris

PERFECT SETTING

Maris divides her time between Nottingham and New York as art director for a knitwear design house. Last year her boyfriend proposed on a romantic break to Cape Cod. Knowing Maris' discerning tastes he hesitated to commit to design for the engagement ring, preferring to propose with a family antique and an assurance that Maris could design her own on her return to England. She approached Temprell with an idea for an Art Deco piece set with emerald cut diamonds.

LUCIE

TWEE DREAMER

Lucie, a teacher from Wymeswold met her fiance Tom whilst studying English literature at Durham University. Inspired by her grandmother's square cut single-stone Parisian piece she came to Temprell to help her realise her engagement ring and wedding bands. Working from sketches and photographs of the original ring, our workshop created a contemporary rendition of a classic using platinum and the finest stones. The result is a fitting symbol of Lucie's union and a future heirloom for generations to come.

STEPHANIE

EASTERN GLAMOUR

Whilst overnighting in Dubai on her way to the far east for business Stephanie came across and fell in love with a complex design. With many of her friends having had bad experiences with foreign jewellery she knew that her best option was to get the piece 'engineered' by a jeweller back home. Armed with a couple of smartphone snaps she approached Temprell to apply some good old British Craftsmanship to an exotic dream.

Amanda

CLASSIC STONE

PR professional and mother of two toddlers, Amanda, knew who to approach when her original engagement ring cracked at the shank and was lost in the process of trying to control an eager Lurcher. Carrying the spirit of the original ring into our CAD program, designing-in strength and testing through a series of replicas Temprell craftsmen were able to create an exceptional piece of great beauty, able to withstand the rigours of daily life.

ESMEE

PREPPY PRINCESS

Not every ring has to commemorate an engagement. When HR professional Esmee was promoted to director she decided to treat herself to a piece of jewellery that she’d have for life. Working with the Temprell design team and master jeweller she designed her own piece in platinum and diamond based upon a ring she’d seen in the Wallace Collection.

Annie

DECO DECADENCE

James

CLEAN LINES

Inspiration comes from all sorts of places. For keen amateur cyclist, James, the hours spent looking at the headset connecting the handlebars to the frame translated into the design for his wedding ring. He approached Temprell with an oily piece of engineering, our craftsmen interpreted this into a clean, masculine and well-proportioned expression of James' interests.

JAMESS PIECE - STRONG AND MASCULINE

Peter

OFF THE CUFF

Cufflinks, if not desperately boring can often occupy a very definite echelon of 'naff.' For Peter, a gentleman with a deep love of traditional design and workmanship, a pair of silver dice were never going to be appropriate. Temprell designers worked with him to create a piece that took his surname's roots and moulded them into something of unique refinement. A truly bespoke item.

PETERS PIECE - INDIVIDUAL AND STYLISH
