"If you are not willing to risk the unusual, you will have to settle for the ordinary"

About Us image
We are Clare and Emma, the very proud owners of Brooklinde Designer Goldsmiths.

After both studying for degrees in Jewellery and Silversmithing at Loughborough and Buckinghamshire Chilterns respectively, we started our professional journey working at Brooklinde. Loving all aspects of our job from designing, making in the workshop and face to face work with our lovely clients. When we had the opportunity to take over the business in 2020 we jumped at the chance.

In April 2021 we moved the short distance to the vibrant and historic Royal Arcade, allowing us to truly put our own stamp on the business, and we haven’t looked back.

We love the commission side of what we do. Being able to guide you the customer towards a stunning piece of jewellery whether it’s for yourself or a gift. Enabling a beautiful design whilst taking into consideration practicalities and budgets. Very often finding ways to reuse sentimental jewellery in a way that suits you. It is hard to think of a better way to spend our day, especially handing over the finished piece and seeing the joy it brings.

Showcasing our own silver and gold collections alongside other jewellery designers, such as Deco Echo and Manu, enables us to show a spectrum of contemporary jewellery.
Over recent years, a close working relationship with the film industry has seen our
collections and bespoke pieces being worn regularly on stage and screen.

Survey Brooklinde’s window display, and you will see an array of exquisite platinum and gold engagement rings, from contemporary and daring to classic, clean lined.

You have the option of tailoring the rings to your requirements by choosing the size, colour, clarity of a diamond (natural or lab grown) or gemstone which we will call in for you to handpick from or making subtle changes to a ring design from the window. 

Alternatively, we can work with you to create a completely bespoke, unique engagement ring. We understand this is a very special purchase. If you are surprising your partner with a ring, we will do our utmost to help you through the process, guiding you with ring size and making an engagement ring which will be treasured.

Take a look at our Gallery page to view more of our engagement rings.

At Brooklinde we show a beautiful selection of wedding rings made in platinum, gold, titanium and silver. We will happily explain the properties of the different metals and work through which profiles work best with specific engagement ring styles.

Having our onsite workshop means that we can also adjust plain bands very quickly to get a perfect fit and we offer a free engagement ring polish just before your big day if you buy both your wedding rings with ourselves.

We also specialise in making shaped wedding bands to fit more unusual engagement rings, often creating 3D wax models so that you can see how they fit together before being cast in the metal of choice.

To commission something unique that will last for generations and to stamp your personality on it, when so much is mass-produced and bland, is hugely rewarding. 

Whether it is as simple as a tweak to one of our existing rings or setting a sapphire in a ring instead of a diamond, melting down gold that you have to make a solid bangle or letting your imagination run wild and creating a truly unique piece, we love to help.

The bespoke design service we offer usually begins with a relaxed face to face meeting at the shop where you can discuss the ideas inspiring your commission. The knowledge we have gained from making jewellery, as well as designing it, is invaluable to guiding you through this process. Using pieces within Brooklinde’s collections to get a feel for the style of jewellery you favour and invariably sketching designs in front of you, your piece will start to take form. 

We regularly start a commission using one of the loose gemstones that we display in our window, or by calling in a choice of diamonds or gemstones for you to handpick from. All of our diamonds are conflict free. Having an idea of your budget beforehand can be beneficial so that designs can be tailored accordingly and once everything is agreed the creating can begin. We do not charge for the estimate.

Below is a snapshot of some of our previous commissions.

Ring Sizing

Our fully equipped on site workshop enables us to carry out same day ring sizing wherever possible. Pop into the shop so that we can accurately measure your finger and explain the process to you.

Same Day Rhodium Plating

The vast majority of white gold is rhodium plated to make it a brighter white. We offer same day rhodium plating at the cost of £45.00 per ring. It usually takes about an hour and a half.


We carry out jewellery repairs on precious metal pieces. It is worth getting us to check over your jewellery from time to time, and if we find that your ring needs claws retipping or settings replaced, we will get back to you with an estimate. We also can match and replace missing stones.
