Can I design my own piece of jewellery?
Our Fine jewellery collection presents a unique opportunity for our customers to design and create solid gold and platinum pieces that will serve as enduring expressions of their personal style. This exquisite collection not only allows for customisation, but also provides a lifetime affiliation with your cherished jewellery pieces. It is not uncommon for members of the same family to order pieces, creating an inter-generational connection that will stand the test of time.
We offer a range of customisation options including the ability to adjust any of our ring styles, or change any of the stones to meet your specific budget. You simply communicate your budget to us and we will provide you with a curated list of different precious stones to choose from, enabling you to create a truly unique and personal piece of jewellery.
How is the jewellery sustainable?
At Dainty London, we prioritise sustainability in all aspects of our operations. To this end, we strive to incorporate recycled sterling silver into our designs wherever possible. Moreover, we are committed to utilising only environmentally friendly and recyclable materials in our packaging, further demonstrating our dedication to sustainability.
In line with our values, we are actively exploring the use of fair trade gold and fair trade gold vermeil for our future collections. This commitment to ethical sourcing and responsible production practices aligns with our overarching goal of creating beautiful jewellery pieces that are also kind to the environment and society.

Where is my jewellery made?
At Dainty London, we take great pride in the quality and craftsmanship of our jewellery pieces. Our designs were conceived in the renowned Hatton Garden district of London, known for its rich history and heritage in the jewellery industry. Each piece is then expertly handmade in our workshop located in the picturesque countryside of Essex, where our team of skilled artisans bring the designs to life with the utmost care and attention to detail.
How will my jewellery be packaged?
At Dainty London, we are dedicated to creating a special and unforgettable experience for our customers. Each of our jewellery pieces is carefully and lovingly gift-wrapped in a luxury Plummett grey matchbox, with our logo beautifully embossed in gold foil on the outer lid. In addition, we provide a complimentary jewellery polishing cloth and a jewellery care guide with every order, so that your jewellery can be cherished and cared for in the best possible way.
To ensure that your order is protected and arrives in pristine condition, we use a branded Dainty London postal box for packaging. We are committed to providing our customers with an exceptional service, and we strive to exceed expectations at every stage of the ordering process.
Can I add a gift note?
At Dainty London, we understand the importance of a thoughtful and personal touch when it comes to gift-giving. That's why we offer our customers the option to add a customised gift message during the checkout process. Simply enter your message in the designated notes section, and we will print it onto our luxury branded paper. This way, your gift will be not only beautifully presented but also tailored to your specific sentiments.
We strive to make every gift-giving experience with Dainty London special and memorable, and our custom gift messaging service is just one way we go above and beyond to achieve this goal.
What happens if my jewellery tarnishes?
At Dainty London, we take great pride in the quality of our jewellery and want it to remain beautiful and shiny for as long as possible. We include a jewellery care instructions card with every order to help you care for your jewellery and prevent tarnishing.
While our jewellery is crafted to be long-lasting, it is important to keep in mind that exposure to pollutants, lotions, perfumes, bleach, and chlorine can all contribute to tarnishing. To prevent tarnishing, we recommend that you always remove your jewellery before swimming, cleaning your home, or working with chemicals.
To maintain the original condition of your jewellery, we suggest you use hot soapy water, with a dash of washing up liquid, to bathe the silver and then gently clean the surface with a soft-bristled toothbrush. After washing, be sure to use the jewellery polishing cloth (included in your order) to rub over the surface. This will bring your jewellery back to life and restore its original shine.
At Dainty London, we want your jewellery to bring joy and beauty to your life for years to come, and we are always here to help if you have any questions or concerns about caring for your precious pieces.
