Ruby Fruits of Disa’s Kenyan Travels!

Tag: engagement

Disa Allsopp has always travelled a lot, growing up in Barbados with adventurous parents. She visits Kenya on a regular basis as inspiration and sourcing expeditions. This winter she visited one of her suppliers with direct links to the mine where this cabouchon ruby was discovered and cut.

This deep pink ruby is set simply in an 18k yellow gold rub-over setting with an open back to allow as much light play as possible. Poised on one of Disa’s signature organic texture bands this ring is all about show casing this unique stone in all its glory.

Enjoy the warmth and depth of colour as we head in to this fresh March weekend! To find out more about it email or get in touch through the contact page.


When Disa saw this Rhodolite Garnet on a stone sourcing trip to Kenya she fell in love with its warm flashes of raspberry, fuschia and scarlet. Beautifully cut to reflect and refract light, Disa has framed it in a tapered 18k yellow gold rubover setting. Sitting on one of her signature organic texture 18k gold bands this ring would make a fabulous engagement ring, or a meaningful gift for an anniversary or birthday.

Disa has been working with the online shopping experience 1st Dibs for a year now. 1st Dibs showcases high end design and provides a platform for independent designers and boutiques around the world. Have a look at the site if in need of anything from furniture to fashion.

These pieces are all handmade in my London studio!

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.

On this page you can see some examples of bespoke work that clients have commissioned.

“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.”
