Sophie Divett Jewellery

One-on-One Jewellery Consultation

Regular price $0.00 NZD
Unit price

Tax included.

Book an appointment to chat with us about creating a made-to-order or custom jewellery piece.

During your session we'll show you through a selection of SDJ pieces and walk you through all of the possibilities for creating a one-of-a-kind, or build-your-own piece of jewellery that complements the style and personality of the wearer.

Consultation options:

1. Quick chat - 20 minutes  ($0) 
An initial discussion with us about your ideas, to explore options, and get a feel for whether a SDJ piece is right for you.

These sessions are perfect if you're interested in ceremonial and wedding bands,  a readymade ring, or a made-to-order existing SDJ design.

You're welcome to visit us anytime without an appointment. Booking an consultation will simply guarantee 1-1 time with us, which is perfect for if you're tight on time, or on our busiest days - such as Saturday. 

2. Full Custom Consultation with Sophie - 1 hour ($50)
If you're wanting to commission a one-of-kind custom piece, or to remodel an existing piece of jewellery /reuse existing gemstones, please book this session. 

There is a small fee for this consultation, which will be credited towards your final piece. 

Your 1-hour consultation session will include:

  • Up to one hour to talk with Sophie one-on-one about your bespoke piece.
  • Viewing of up to 9 stones during your session. Let us know about any gem types, shapes, sizes or colours you are interested in before your appointment, so we can select the best options for you ahead of time.
  • After your appointment we will provide a no-obligation quote to create the piece(s) discussed. The quote will cover metal options, and up to two design variations and/or centre stone variations and sketches (if required). 
  • Custom pieces are created by combining different gems, metals and elements from Sophie's extensive portfolio of designs. For examples view Sophie's portfolio
  • It's a good idea to fill out the Custom Jewellery Enquiry Form before your appointment, so we can begin building a picture for what you have in mind.

3. Follow-up appointment - 15 minutes ($0)
After your consultation, you're welcome to book a follow-up to take a second look at any gems or pieces you are considering (sometimes it's a good idea to sleep on it!) and talk through the details of your quote and design before making your final decision.
