If you are looking for something different, with or without any ideas, then one step into our studio will start to get the creative juices flowing. In the studio there is a cacophony of samples from previous works, collections, exhibitions and raw materials to start the process of designing something specific to your needs. It is from this initial part of the process that the Sophie Harley design house will take you through the process to prototype and to a completed piece. All design and crafting the pieces are controlled in-house enabling far greater creativity and surety that all products that leave the studio are given a lifetime guarantee.
We work in gold, platinum, and silver. All products are hallmarked and all precious stones and diamonds are purchased only from our dealers who comply with the Kimberly Process. All diamonds over a certain carat weight are certified by the certificated from The GIA (Geological Institute of America).
We also specialise in remodelling existing pieces of jewellery often handed down from previous generations which can be re designed into something, not only more contemporary, but more beautiful. We can remove precious stones from your existing jewellery pieces and sell your unwanted gold and silver to our reputable bullion dealer, then we can credit this against your commission with us should you so wish. People have been using this service more than ever recently, and whether you call it recycling or 'upcycling' most people have inherited pieces of jewellery that Sophie can transform into something exceptional for you.
