About Des


I've been Cotswold Ringmaker since 2000, and it all began over 30 years ago.  I was fortunate enough as a very young man to secure a five year apprenticeship, working in-house at one of London's famous jewellery design companies. After that I worked for a number of Hatton Garden companies, honing my skills in jewellery making and repairs.

I have worked on many pieces over the years, some of which you can see in the website Gallery. My specialty is Wedding and Engagement Rings. I have designed and hand crafted many beautiful pieces; rings, necklaces, pendants, bracelets and even the occasional crown-and no job is beyond my capabilities to create something special and beautiful for my customers. 

Designer Jewellery

I design and create jewellery for everyday, party and special occasion wear.  Order online or in the shop. I offer a fast delivery service  or you can collect.    

Beautiful and affordable jewellery by Cotswold Ringmaker, designed and hand made in Britain. I am constantly updating my shop online and instore to keep up with the latest trends., and when its gone, its gone!

Behind the scenes

My workshop is where the magic happens. Its part of my shop, where you'll be able to see me at work when I am not helping customers, and see how the handcrafted pieces for sale and commissioned are created by me.    

CAD Jewellery Design is one of my specialities. I have my own 3D printer to work in house on Jewellery design and I create all the pieces myself in my workshop.
