Bespoke and Memorial Jewellery

Looking for special memorial jewellery, a bespoke piece for a special occasion, or have any old and broken jewellery that you no longer wear? At Monica Milton Jewellery, I can design a new piece to commemorate your loved ones or beloved family pets, incorporating hair or ashes.

Do you have a specific design in mind? I am happy to collaborate with you to create a truly personalised piece. Alternatively, I could design and make a unique piece to celebrate a birthday, anniversary, or even to treat yourself.

Any sterling silver and all carats of gold can also be melted to create a one-of-a-kind piece.

Before melting, all jewellery undergoes testing. If the jewellery has gemstones, they can be set in the new piece of jewellery.

Please don’t hesitate to reach out if you have any questions or to schedule a consultation.

Prices start from £65 depending on:

  1. The type of piece –wither it is a pendant, ring, brooch, bangle, earrings or memorial box.
  2. The design and the size of the piece.
  3. If the piece is to be made in sterling silver or gold
  4. If the piece is to be plated
  5. Is there any gold or silver you want to melt?
  6. Would you want the piece set with gemstones?
  7. Do you have any gemstones from existing jewellery, you would like included in the new piece?
  8. Would you like the piece engraved. I can have the piece either machine or hand engraved by a local master engraver


Designs incorporating hair or ashes can either be suspended in resin, set behind a gemstone  or be enclosed in a memorial box.

All commissions start with a FREE consultation, this can be done face to face, by zoom or by email. I will then draw up some designs for you. If you have chosen gemstones, I will also source a selection for you to choose from.

Once the design has been approved, a non refundable deposit of 40% is required. I will then start making your piece and will keep you updated through WhatsApp or email with photos of how your piece is looking.

Feel free to request adjustments at any point during the making process. I want you to be completely satisfied with the end result.

Once the piece is ready and you are pleased with it, it will be sent to the Edinburgh Assay Office for hallmarking (learn more about hallmarking).

The whole process typically takes between 2-4 weeks, depending on the design and hallmarking stages.
Only after you are satisfied with the piece will the balance be due, which can be paid either on collection or prior to dispatch.
