Custom Made Memorial Keepsake Jewellery
Carolyn has designed various Memorial / Keepsake Jewellery.
Featured are "Always in our Heart" with 3 Initials in a Heart shape, this piece was designed with my Aunt and Uncle in mind after they lost their Daughter. ( initials of the 3) This can be altered to 2 Initials and can be made in Silver, Gold or Two tone. It is a sentimental piece where unless you were told it was 3 Initials on and angle you wouldn't know what it was.
The second design Carolyn came up with was for her two cousins (of the same family above) named "Hidden Initials"from the front it looks like random lines but from the wearers perspective you can see 2 Letters.
This is the View from the wearers perspective. Pendants are reversible with patterned backing. Available in Gold, Silver & Two Tone. You can also get a second heart behind the " Hidden Initials" and have hand engraved a word of your choice.
Repairs - We only repair Jewellery purchased from us.
If Jewellery purchased from us is faulty it will be replaced/repaired. This is not applicable if a customer has requested we use old/scrap gold - remelted - because we can not guarantee there is no foreign particles in the melt that will affect the jewellery later on ( it is not uncommon for remelted jewellery to crack years later - for no obvious reason) Because of this we prefer to use new metal on our makes.We do not buy second hand jewellery or stones.
Conflict Free Diamonds -
Carella Jewellers only uses diamonds from a distributor with 100% Ethically Sourced Diamonds guaranteed to be from non conflict & conflict free regions. They may be slightly more expensive but we find the majority of customers prefer them.
