What is Bespoke Jewelry?

Bespoke jewelry refers to pieces made from scratch according to the specifications and preferences of individual clients. This process allows you to leave your mark on each aspect of the design: choosing the material, size, shape, and color of the diamonds, their settings, and more.

Often used as an interchangeable term for bespoke, custom jewelry presents a limited degree of personalization; where the client can select a gemstone, a setting style, or the gold’s color, but the overall design can’t be changed. It’s important to note that bespoke jewelry is always one-of-a-kind, and involves full customization.

At Langerman Diamonds we offer both approaches. If you prefer to add your personal touch to a piece that has already been designed, please visit Langerman Jewels. There, you will find our two collections: The Line and The One, where you can customize existing designs by selecting your favorite color diamonds.

Telling Stories with Fancy Color Diamonds

At the heart of bespoke jewelry lies the art of storytelling. Every diamond, every design element, carries a narrative waiting to be told. Take, for instance, the Canary diamonds, shining symbols of joy and happiness. Picture an anniversary ring adorned with these luminous stones, each a testament to the enduring bond and cherished memories shared between partners.

Similarly, Chocolate diamonds evoke indulgence, making them the perfect choice for celebrating life's sweetest moments.

Why Choose Bespoke Diamond Jewelry

Besides the opportunity to completely design an object to your taste, here are three advantages of buying bespoke.

Diamond Quality

A jewelry collection may take years to develop, with a certain number of pieces produced to have in stock ready to be sold. This is why you most likely won’t find customization options available when buying jewelry from a store.

When commissioning a bespoke jewel, you can discuss the clarity grade you are looking for, the tone and intensity you prefer, the carat weight, the diamond shape, etc. You will have total control over the quality of the diamonds in your piece.


Having a one-of-a-kind jewel made following your precise design brief is a way of capturing the essence of your life’s experiences and important moments. The story behind each jewel will be remembered and retold by future generations; becoming a family heirloom.

It’s Meaningful

A pendant necklace with pavé diamonds spelling your loved one’s initials in their favorite color, or a ring with a diamond representing each of your children; a bespoke piece is deeply personal. A commercial collection is no match to a gift that was specially made for someone.

Our 4-Step Bespoke Process

1. Selecting Your Diamond(s)

At the heart of every one of our bespoke creations lies a magnificent natural color diamond. Unlike traditional white diamonds, each color diamond tells a unique story through its color, rarity, and brilliance, making the selection process a truly exhilarating experience.

The journey begins with a conversation to understand what our clients are looking for; Is the piece a present? An engagement ring? A new piece for their collection? … We also discuss diamond options in-depth, including any color preference, carat weight, shape, and budget. We invite our clients to explore Langerman's vast stock of color diamonds and share the best stones that match their vision. Our suggestions are accompanied by several photos, videos, and detailed information to guide our customers and help them make the best choice.

2. Collaborative Design
