The IHD Experience

Sometimes the future has to embrace the past

The IHD Experience is a modern return of business from golden days gone by; where custom-made was in great supply and the shopping experience was a thing to enjoy.



Our studio awaits you…

Come visit our design studio with your imagination and creativity where we can explore your perfect piece of jewellery.

Your first visit is a relaxed meetup with Iain our Design Consultant. Join him for a cuppa at a time that suits you. The Studio is behind Iain’s house so we can see you during the day, late into the evenings and also on Saturdays.

The IHD Studio

A little way to get exactly what you want

We have customers visiting us from all over the UK to get the services we provide. Visiting the Studio, or as many do, commission remotly via e-mail, phone or Skype etc.

A place where you get to speak directly to designers and craftsmen, with over 40 years of combined experience. We are definitely not salesmen! We’ll listen to exactly what you want (and don’t), then offer you the breth and depth of our knowledge; explore with you the right metals, gemstones and processes to designing your jewellery to your budget.

You can be involved at every step of the way, seeing your ideas come to life and transform into a stunning piece of jewellery.


You are happy and we love that…

“Excellent! Relaxed and informative. Iain made sure we had exactly what we wanted”

By Alison & Jonathan

“Friendly, helpful service, not at all pushy and we got exactly what we wanted on time. Just Perfect!!!”

By Lynda & Mark

“Great personal service! Rings made to our budget and style.”

By Stacy & Jonathan

“Thank you Iain, Karl and Lindsay from the bottom of my heart, for helping me to fulfil a long term dream and to further a family tradition, for not assuming a request for coal jewellery to be some sort of wind up, for being so patient in the design and make process (probably a lot more patient than even I realise) and for the speed and efficiency.”

By Andrea Hartley

A IHD story…

Lewis & Helen's Custom made engagement ring

By Lewis & Helen

I chose Iain over a highstreet again, because I just wanted that expert and I wanted someone that wasn’t just going to try and sell me anything, he was going to really listen to what I wanted, my needs and what I wanted for Helen. The whole experience has been great, I really enjoyed that kind of personal – arriving at the font, Iain coming to meet us, walking around and then come to this really, really lovely place… I chose IHD because, it’s just so personal. It’s a really professional service. It made me feel really, really comfortable choosing a ring. I had no issues whatsoever and it made me feel really comfortable in what I was doing was exactly perfect and exactly right.

It’s more than business – it’s personal

Upon completion, like the “topping off” ceremonies upon building a house. IHD and customers alike have created a symbol to celebrate. A shared journey and experience that is an achievement all-round.

Celebrate With IHD

We take great pride in The IHD Experience, and hope you’ll return to us each time you are thinking about a new piece of jewellery. It’s comforting to think that some traditions like having a family jeweller or tailor, will not be lost but be reborn!
