Coffs Harbour Custom Design Jewellery

 

SENTIMENTALITY STARTS WITH YOU

 

Matt Loretan Jewellery believes a custom piece of jewellery that you have invested thought into, will become a treasured object by the recipient forever.

 

Matt Loretan puts his soul and passion into every piece of custom jewellery he crafts from raw materials. The results are often spectacular and become a treasured item often handed down through generations.

 

Matt Loretan Custom Jewellery combines old world craftsmanship and combines it with the latest technology. For many projects, Matt can produce a 3D computer generated render so he can give you an accurate cost prior to beginning a project. The latest software can calculate the volume of gold and other precious materials to be used in a custom design so that material costs are accurate. It’s surprising to learn that custom jewellery need not be cost prohibitive and is within the reach for people in all stages of their life.

 

Matt Loretan is a third generation Gold Smith who calls the Coffs Coast region home. The Loretan family have been a part of the jewellery industry since 1924. Matt loves the process of producing jewellery that perfectly captures the spirit and personality of the wearer.

 

Matt completed a 5 year apprenticeship in the Perth working with some of Australia’s fines jewellers where he learnt advanced metallurgy, setting of precious gemstones and the many different processes of jewellery design and manufacture.

 

CUSTOM JEWELLERY

 

THE PROCESS

 

The process to an amazing piece of jewellery created by Matt begins with a personalised design consultation (free of charge) in our Coffs Harbour studio. This typically takes up to an hour, if you have an idea in mind, it is recommended that you bring along any images that capture your imagination. However if you are unsure, that's fine too. Similarly, if you have any existing pieces of jewellery that you would like to use for materials, it is important to also bring these with you on the day.

 

 

Matt will discuss a range of aspects with you from aesthetic preferences, sentimental or emotional influences to lifestyle or occupational considerations. He will then consider structural integrity into the mix and begin to formulate design options. Usually he will begin with a hand drawn sketch, and then later may create a digital design to assist with finalising the design and quoting.

 

Once the design and quote have been agreed upon a 50% deposit is required for materials to be ordered and / or work to begin. Time frames can vary so it is important to discuss this at the time of your consultation. It is recommended that you allow 4-6 weeks for most custom jewellery commissions.

IS CUSTOM JEWELLERY

 

VERY EXPENSIVE?

 

Custom designed jewellery can be surprisingly affordable and not out of reach of most Australians. The majority of off the shelf jewellery is generally made from a mould which has been designed to keep the materials weight (gold, silver and platinum) to a minimum. The cost of using the minimum amount of materials often comes at the compromise of strength. Day to day tasks such as picking up a shopping bag can bend and twist some chain store pieces and metal fatigue over time means breakage.

 

 

 

When Matt designs a piece of jewellery he takes into consideration the amount of time it takes to form the piece and then set any stones. If you have a budget in mind, it's always best to bring this up early in a discussion so that Matt can guide you through what would be achievable with that budget. Many times using a slightly different grade of stone can save thousands of dollars in producing a custom piece of jewellery and Matt knows what to look for to achieve maximum 'bang for buck' in selecting a great gemstone.

Not every piece of jewellery you own may still be in style, fit correctly or it may simply bring back unwanted memories. Matt can take an existing piece of jewellery and use the material to remodel into a new piece of jewellery that you will treasure forever. Talk to Matt about using old, out of style or badly damaged jewellery and turning it into something you will want to wear everyday.

 

QUALITY ASSURANCE

 

Matt puts his name behind every piece of jewellery he creates. Unfortunately not all jewellery is made with Matt's attention to detail and quality approach. Matt will examine all jewellery brought in for repair and will give an honest assessment of the piece and advise if he believes it may not be worth repairing or for items with a high sentimental value he will inform you of it's limits prior to beginning work. This way you can use the piece sparingly if it cannot be repaired to a high standard (due to lack of material in the affected area or other structural integrity concern). You can be assured that every piece of work Matt takes on, will be completed to the highest of standards.
