Experts of design with precious metals

The World’s greatest trophies, awards, and medals start with a great concept and design. Our in-house design team are among the brightest minds in the industry, well-equipped to design from scratch on your behalf. In many cases we also work alongside our clients’ design team or directly with agencies. We are experts in the design and manufacture of custom commissions in precious metals. We understand how to translate creative artwork into exquisite bespoke silverware.

Working with a member of our design team, the initial vision comes from the customer. Our designs are built upon appreciation for tradition and heritage, art and architecture, sport and culture, nature and travel, refined down to specific styles, shapes and textures. The scope of the design review not only covers the medals themselves, but also the ribbons and cases which can be manufactured with custom branding and colours. We typically generate 3-5 concepts for your review.
