Commissioning jewellery with Disa Allsopp: ‘Revitalisation by a brilliant designer!’

Tag: commission

Commissioning an item of jewellery can be a daunting process, either if starting out from scratch or reworking a pre-loved piece. Not so a commission by Disa Allsopp!

Disa has years of experience working with clients to create a piece unique them. The process most often begins with a visit to Disa in her London studio to discuss the options. Often, from looking at her current collections, a decision can be made about the design in this initial meeting.

If more time is needed to develop the design, this is the point measurements are taken, ideas are discussed and from there Disa can source stones, create mock ups, sketch out ideas, whatever is needed to move the process on.

Testimonials from past clients describe commissioning bespoke work from Disa as ‘revitalisation by a brilliant designer’, and creating work that becomes ‘unquestionably my favourite piece of jewellery’.

Below a recent commissioned piece, 18k yellow reticulated gold, with three aquamarines flush set in to the chunky band. Disa loved making this piece, saying ‘The textures in this ring frame the watery aquamarines beautifully. The client just loved it, and I enjoyed working on such a substantial ring.’


Disa’s bespoke service gives clients an opportunity to commission a special piece unique to them. Disa is hands on in the commissioning process working closely with clients on custom pieces for many occasions including weddings, anniversaries or for clients simply wanting to treat themselves.

Disa is an expert at working with recycled metals and at working with old pieces of jewellery. These can be updated or redesigned using existing gemstones or metal. Please note that when reusing clients metal or gems, these have to be tested and often a higher carat gold is added to keep the gold to a high standard.

How we work

1. Firstly Disa will discuss with you your requirements, coming up with ideas and options for the piece, this can be done either by email, phone or video call

2. After the initial discussion, Disa will meet with you to provide you with a set of drawings and show you samples as to how the piece will look. In this meeting a decision will be made on the final design to be taken forward

3. We will then provide you with a quote along with an estimated lead time for delivery. Disa will start working on your piece once the quote is agreed and payment is taken.

“I have bought and enjoyed many pieces from Disa over the past 20 years. One piece, which I wear every day, is a bespoke anniversary/wedding ring. Both contemporary and medieval in feeling, it is unquestionably my favourite piece of jewellery.”



“Disa designed three silver/gold pieces using diamonds inherited from my mother. They are stunning – and they are frequently admired.  Each piece complements my personality and I wear one or other almost daily – my delight is enhanced by the sparkling reminder of my lovely parents.”
