There’s more to this article than meets the eye. Lovely Sarah speaks from the heart about her custom made wedding rings with vintage and family heirloom gems. And she won me over the first time I read this piece – what could be more romantic than giving new life to a treasured diamond or gemstone? The loveliness of Heulwen Lewis Bespoke also lies in its creator. There are plenty of ethical diamonds businesses, and bigger brands making bespoke rings. But having spoken to this lovely lady, I’d choose her if I was looking for a wedding or engagement ring. Because a special ring should have heart and soul, and Sarah’s shines through in everything she creates. Please read this – it’s wonderful.

Weddings are celebrations of romantic love. But often, they’re also about bringing families — old and new — together to mark the growth of a new branch on the family tree. What better way to honour this union than by creating a piece of jewellery that combines the love and goodwill of multiple generations?
At Heulwen Lewis Bespoke, we specialise in breathing new life into preloved or inherited jewellery by remodelling it to reflect your taste.
I’m Sarah. I specialise in designing and creating beautiful custom-made engagement and wedding jewellery.
A romantic at heart
I’ve always been a romantic. For me, creativity and relationships are all part of the same thing. As a two-year-old watching my grampa paint, I couldn’t wait to pick up a brush — just a few years later we were painting portraits side-by-side. Beading pieces of my Nan’s broken jewellery was another passion. I don’t know what I loved more — spending time together or being creative — but to this day, the warm feeling I get when creating a sentimental piece inspires me.
