Not only have Devon master goldsmiths Isabella Day and Ford Hallam opened their own atelier – The Remarkable Goldsmiths – in Dartmouth this summer, but the exceptional talent of the Devon jewellers has also been recognised by jewellery bodies on a national and international basis. Isabella has been selected as a finalist for Designer of the Year at the Association of National Jewellers; she is also the only female fellow of the Institute of Professional Jewellers in the Southwest. Meanwhile, Ford has won the top gold prizes for the art and skill of Japanese metalwork (Kinko) in the top national competition in Japan.
Using traditional goldsmithing techniques and making their own gold alloys from scratch, Isabella and Ford craft extraordinary contemporary treasures from their Dartmouth studio. Specialising in distinct and ethical gemstones as well as reworking heirloom jewels, the pair can shape, forge and handcraft over 26 different colours of gold into whatever you desire, whether it’s a wedding ring, engagement ring or a striking piece of jewellery reflective of your love story to wear on your wedding day and treasure forever.
