Bespoke and custom made jewellery

We love working collaboratively with our clients, both remotely and in person, on creating bespoke jewellery, such as custom engagement ringswedding rings, or special pieces of fine jewellery that reflect their individual style and design aesthetic. All our bespoke jewellery is designed in close collaboration between the client and our brand founder, jewellery designer Maria Lizunova. Bespoke clients have access to our handpicked collection of beautiful gemstones and have an opportunity to have a special diamond or gemstone sourced by Maria. You can read more about our bespoke process here.

We work with many interstate and international customers via Zoom, Skype, phone and email on their special bespoke pieces, be it engagement rings, wedding rings, or special one-off pieces. We can provide videos and photos of gemstones taken in natural daylight to give you a realistic understanding of their colour, scintillation and scale.

It typically takes around 6 weeks to create a bespoke piece of jewellery, from design to a finished piece. If you need your piece sooner, please contact us and we will do our best to accommodate your request.

Yes. We love designing and making custom engagement rings and would love to help you create your dream ring.

Yes. We can laser engrave inside your Lizunova ring, or create a custom pattern on the outside. Please contact us to enquire.

GEMSTONES AND DIAMONDS

Yes. We can help you choose the right diamond to fit your requirements and budget. For more information on colourless/white diamonds, including the 4Cs, please see our blog White Diamonds: Beyond the 4Cs.

Yes. Our diamonds over 0.5ct are certified by international diamond labs such as GIA.

Yes, the diamonds we sell are Kimberly process certified to be conflict free.

Lab grown diamonds are real diamonds created in highly specialised labs. They are visually indistinguishable from mined diamonds and cost on average 30-40% less. Diamond jewellery on our website uses mined diamonds, but we can source a lab grown diamond to suit your requirements and budget. For more information on lab grown diamonds, see our blog Lab Grown Diamond Engagement Rings.

Yes. We can source or custom cut a specific diamond or gemstone to suit your requirements and budget. Contact us to enquire.

Yes. There are many beautiful and durable gemstones, other than the traditional white diamond, that are suitable for everyday wear, such as engagement rings. Sapphires, which comes in a vast array of colours - all shades of blue, teal, peach, green, pink, orange, yellow and parti - is one of our favourites. Parti sapphires display two or more colours, making each gem unique. Spinel is another favourite - it comes in shades of grey, blue, red, orange, lilac, pink, purple, black and silvery white. Salt and pepper diamonds and champagne diamonds are another great alternative.

METALS

Yes. We work with Australian metals manufactured ethically to a high standard.

We work with Australian made precious metals, 9 karat, 14 karat and 18 karat white, yellow and rose gold, platinum, palladium, zirconium, titanium and carbon. We also work with Mokume gane. Mokume gane is a Japanese art of pattering metal laminates dating back to feudal Japan and means "Wood Grain Metal". Contact us to enquire.

Generally speaking, olive skinned people can wear all metal colours, while white gold, platinum and yellow gold looks great on people with white skin and a pink undertone. Read more about metal colours and skin tone on our blog Precious Metals and Skin Tone.

The main difference is the content of pure gold. In 9 karat gold, it's 37.5%, in 14 karat gold, 57.5% and in 18 karat gold, 75%. Although the three alloys look very similar, the higher the gold content, the less the metal will tarnish. Read more on our blog 9k vs 18k Gold.

The platinum we use is 95% pure, hallmarked 950, and is the highest grade. Platinum is a hypoallergenic metal suitable for people who are likely to have a reaction to other metals in an alloy. White gold is naturally a grey or yellowish colour, depending on other metals present in the alloy. If you like a bright white colour, white gold will require rhodium plating every 1-3 years, depending on the wear and tear. Rhodium is a precious metal that is bright white. Platinum does not require plating and is naturally a bright white metal.

Jewellery care

Yes. We recommend you bring your Lizunova jewellery to us every 6-12 months for settings check and an ultrasonic clean. This is a lifetime complimentary service.

Precious metal jewellery will scratch and wear naturally over time. It is recommended to avoid letting your jewellery come into contact with hard or abrasive surfaces like steel or concrete, that can cause damage to the metal and stones of your piece. Even a diamond, the hardest stone of all, can chip if hit with enough force or at just the right angle. For more on how to care for your jewellery, visit our Jewellery Care Guide.

Diamonds, like any other gemstone, require careful wear and regular cleaning, to keep them sparkling. Read our blog Tips to Keep Your Diamonds Clean for more information.

Warranty

Yes. All Lizunova jewellery pieces are covered by a voluntary manufacturing warranty. In addition to this, they come with guarantees that cannot be excluded under the Australian Consumer Law. For more on Lizunova voluntary manufacturing warranty, please read Voluntary Manufacturer's Warranty.
