Share Your Idea With Us.
Everybody who comes to us has a dream of what they'd love to see in a piece of unique, custom made jewellery.
Once we have heard your ideas we can show you gems in-house and start working on some initial design concepts as the first step in creating your perfect piece.
Finalise The Design.
Once we have a strong design concept we can explain the key fundamental elements of jewellery. For example, a diamond’s colour, clarity, carat weight and cut - all have a bearing on the price.
However, many people don’t realise the symmetry and polish has a huge impact on a diamond’s lustre.
This is why it’s always best to view a diamond before a potential purchase.
With this additional expert knowledge, you will have complete confidence in your new jewellery.
Commission The Jewellery.
Utilising our network of trusted suppliers, built from decades in this highly specialised business, we provide our clients with a competitive edge on price.
We can arrange a bespoke diamond engagement ring from £1500 all the way to a diamond necklace that can cost the same as a private jet!
Either way, the result is the same - fulfilling your dream by creating an exclusive and personal piece of jewellery.

We now work as private jewellers. Due to the highly specialised nature of the business, we're limited by the number of new projects we can take on at any one time.
During your initial consultation, we'll be able to advise you as to when we can start.
Specialists in classic diamond engagement and unique coloured gem rings, diamond earring studs and pendants.
We have an extensive range of eternity rings and classic wedding bands available to view at our home studio.
Don’t waste your valuable time going from shop to shop. If there’s something specific you’re unable to find, we can locate it for you.
Source loose diamonds and unusual coloured gems for viewing.
We utilise our extensive knowledge to unearth rare and unusual gems. Give us a few days’ notice and we can obtain most gemstones, from all four corners of the world. We have sourced phenomenal Ceylon Sapphire, natural coloured Diamonds, non heated Aquamarine and certificated natural and lab grown white Diamonds.
Engagement rings Sussex.
If you are planning to look for an engagement ring in Brighton’s
famous Lanes, why not pay us a visit instead? I am based in Ditchling, Sussex. With free parking and being just outside the city it makes the journey very easy. You can choose from a range of loose diamond to then have fitted into your perfect ring.
Valuation for Insurance.
We can value items of jewellery, for insurance purposes, at one of our premises.
To give you an example, you may have inherited some items and are unsure of their worth.
You can leave your jewellery with us. Or, we can make notes, photograph it, and hand it straight back.
Repairing & Re-modelling.
Bring your old jewellery to life!
Or perhaps it can be remodelled so it can be worn again by future generations?
Personally, i find this one of the most satisfying jobs in jewellery. Great care is taken to restore heirlooms or even create new ones from your old pieces!
We only deal with conflict-free diamonds and gemstones.
We are an independent business and therefore have close ties to our global network of gemstone providers.
We guarantee the source of all our gems is conflict-free
“I cannot commend Russell's abilities more highly - I would recommend him to anyone looking for personal, quality service."
“We wanted to buy a bespoke sapphire ring, not knowing exactly what we were looking for, and went to Russell Wood because we knew he offered an excellent personal service"
Ian & Sue P.
Synonymous with luxurious jewellery for over three decades, the Wood family have been creating stunning pieces in The Lanes, Brighton, since 1986.
As one of Sussex’s leading exponents in the craft, Kellerwood’s central boutique welcomed increasing numbers of happy clients as their reputation grew.
After 32 years, John and Katrina retired from the business in 2018. Russell, with a wealth of knowledge in the trade restarted under a new format in 2019.
Russell now provides a bespoke private service from either the comfort of his home in Hove, premises in mid-Sussex, or an office in the London Diamond Bourse, for more exclusive pieces.
"I source and create exceptional fine jewellery. I’m very proud of my profession. The most important aspect of this age-old craft is imparting some of the knowledge I’ve accrued from my 25 years immersed in the trade. I relish educating my clients through the exciting process of purchasing their gems – it’s a lifelong passion."
