The true meaning of bespoke refers to handcrafted design, developed in close consultation with the client.
The talented team at Via Sollertia are the bespoke specialists, delivering a personal design and creation service for clients who want a unique piece of jewellery. “We design and craft creations fully by hand – without using CAD (computer aided design) or cast and assembled design – which is the true meaning of bespoke,” says designer Clare.
There is also a stunning selection of timeless, unique pieces showcased at the store – all beautifully crafted by the on-site jeweller. Located in the heart of the city on iconic New Regent Street, the family-owned business provides a friendly, welcoming atmosphere and can work with any budget.
“Good service is our number one priority and we’re willing to go above and beyond what customers expect.”

Award-winning New Regent Street jeweller “Polished Diamonds – Jewellery Design” specialises in bespoke jewels that are uniquely you.
Clients can bring in their own precious stones, or choose from 20,000 diamonds and 3,500 ring designs. Architectural CAD technology and equipment such as an MRI laser scanner ensure that any stone, any metal and any ring profile can be produced to utter perfection and brilliance, not to mention matched more exactly to existing jewellery.
Owner Dan Joines says if people can dream it, they can create it. “In a little over a week we can reproduce a client’s ultimate vision from their photos, images or design ideas.” Backed with a lifetime guarantee and at affordable workshop direct prices – why go anywhere else?
There’s a slight organic shift happening in ring trends, so think Clare and Joel of New Regent Street’s Via Sollertia.
They design and sell mouth-wateringly lovely engagement and wedding rings, amongst other jewellery. The current mood seems to point in the direction of very simple yet hand-crafted, faceted rings in which the uniqueness lies in a certain ‘unfinished, non-uniform quality.’
“People are requesting beautiful buttery textures in which the metal appears soft and fluid,” Clare says. She’s able to design and bring any ring-profile desire to fruition. Every piece is created on-site, to any dreamy specifications. The finish created can be contemporary or traditional; raw, beaten, rough, or glossy.

The team at Via Sollertia understands that the ring becomes a part of you, an extension of your essence and simply being stunningly beautiful just isn’t enough anymore.
Design innovation is as elemental as air and water to Via Sollertia and Clare loves “that we have created something beautiful to solve a problem”.
She is talking about Via Sollertia’s own diamond-shaped ring keeper necklace. The ring keeper necklace was forged by the desire of women who do physical work, or jobs requiring continuous handwashing, to keep their precious ring completely safe, yet still wear it. You can display the necklace and ring, or tuck it safely into your top.
When your ring is nestling on your finger, the necklace stands alone as a fabulous piece. “We were challenged to design a product and it has become desirable in its own right,” she says. The ring keeper necklaces are bespoke to you, plus sizing and angles ensure your ring stays put. Doctor, drainlayer, dishwasher or busy mum, you need this clever little beauty.
Custom-creation jewellers, Via Sollertia of New Regent Street, can help take the pressure out of marriage proposals with a new bespoke ring making service, the Nu Proposal.
The family run boutique business takes pride on offering both bride and groom an experienced professional design and creation experience. Clients can visit Via Sollertia to choose a statement diamond or gemstone, which is then securely placed in a sustainable rimu ring box; setting the stage for a truly romantic proposal.
If the answer to the proposal is `yes’ couples can then select the materials and designing of the ring begins. A gorgeous range of displayed rings in heritage, whimsical, classic or modern styles pave the way for each aesthetic couple-decision.
The result? Something classy, personalised and utterly unforgettable.
The zeitgeist of ‘you do you’ extends even and perhaps especially, to that most unifying of life’s milestones: the point at which the one you love becomes your pair-bond from this day forward unto the great hereafter.
Modern couples understand a successful marriage allows the individual essence of both parties to thrive and this is mirrored in their selection of personalised wedding rings.
The days when wedding rings matched – just because – are a relic of a more prescribed era. Personal taste, colouring and hand dimensions now drive the choice. A delicate rose gold and diamond ring can join in matrimony with a solid platinum one – the combinations are as varied as the wedded bliss they symbolise.
The team at Via Sollertia believes every wedding ring should represent the unique brand of love and honour its owner brings to the union.
At Via Sollertia on New Regent Street, Clare and the team are adding sophisticated sparkle – and colour – to their clients’ lives.
Ever-evolving styles are ushering in a new era of striking coloured stones and Via Sollertia is at the forefront, with an exceptional and exquisite selection. “We’re noticing a strong trend of people choosing something with colour versus the traditional white diamond,” Clare explains.
“Sapphires and diamonds are the most common stones used in engagement rings, but I’m not sure everyone would know that sapphires are available in not just blue.”
They also come in green, yellow, orange and pink. Even rarer sapphire colours include the padparadscha sapphire – a deep peachy pink. “Diamonds don’t just come in white either; they come in champagne, chocolate, yellow, pink and even grey/silver!”
Tourmaline is also winning affections as an affordable stone that comes in a range of colours. “They come in varying shades of green, pink/red and blue. The designs you can create around a coloured stone are fun and interesting and you can hand-select a particular stone yourself. We have a large range in store as well as fab suppliers who can send us particular stones for clients to view.”
Women of style pay attention to every detail and there are two significant details that will be part of each look you sport, every day of your married life.
Reflecting the harmonious union that you and your loved one seal at the altar, your engagement ring and your wedding ring should complement one another, each enhancing the other’s beauty, rather than competing for attention or detracting noisily.
