Custom Design and Commissions
A commissioned handmade custom designed ring or piece of jewellery is the ultimate statement of your individuality and character. With our own in-house designer and access the UKs specialist makers, we can guarantee to create a unique high quality item to meet your desires.
This is a speciality for which we have become renowned with our customers referring and recommending their friends and family onto us on a regular basis.
Perhaps you have been left some jewellery by someone close and would love to keep the history and memories but turn them into an item you would wear with pride. Come and have an informal chat where we will run through the possibilities and give you the best guidance to help you decide how you would like the jewellery used.
It may be as simple as repairing or rebuilding the items to their original design or redesigning and remodelling the piece to give it a modern contemporary feel, or starting from a blank canvas and designing a completely new piece of jewellery using stones or other elements of the original.
Whichever way you choose to go you can be assured we will treat the pieces with utmost respect and when finished the new handmade creation will be a compliment to the originals.
When you don't know exactly what you want but know you want something different, contemporary and handmade, then our in-house design team cantalk you through all of your options. We take time to listen, find out a little about you, your lifestyle, your likes and most importantly your dislikes. From there we will come up with some ideas and develop those along with you until we find the design you love.
Every handmade design or remodelling project is unique and therefore impossible to put a cost on until it has been defined. If you have a budget to work to it's best to be upfront about it at the initial consultation as we can advise on the best way to work within your comfort zone.
We do not charge for consultations or design work and will give you a fixed price once a final design has been agreed.
We'd love to help make your dreams become reality so why not make an appointment for a no obligation consultation? Call us on 01506 826863 or pop into our boutique at 43 North Street Bo'ness EH51 0AQ.
Pebbles Jewellery Valuation Service
At Pebbles we are very proud to work with Scotland's premier jewellery valuation consultant, Adrian S Smith FGA Jewellery Valuations.
Adrian S Smith FGA is an independent jewellery valuation consultant providing a comprehensive jewellery valuation and appraisal for private clients and some of Scotland's most eminent jewellers.
Adrian is the founding member of the Association of Independent Jewellery Valuers. In addition, he is actively involved in gemmology education in Scotland as a member of the manangement committee of the Scottish Gemmological Association. He is also a member of various associations in the USA, including the National Association of Jewellery Appraisers (senior member) and is a senior accredited gemmologist and a member of the Board of Govenors of the Accredited Gemmologist Association.
Adrian does not buy and sell jewellery or accept renumeration from insurance companies, brokers, lawyers or any other associated industries. In adopting this stance he remains totally independent, unbiased and objective.
Why you should have your jewellery valued regularly
A valuation and appraisal of your treasured items is so much more than a listing of their values. It provides you with peace of mind that in the event of a loss, the detailed description of the missing item will allow a fitting replacement to be supplied. The schedule provides proof of ownership. This is useful when a claim is made against any unspecified items on your insurance policy.
Do you realise that if you cannot prove that stolen jewellery belongs to you, it can, in some cases be returned to the suspected burglar? The detailed descriptions and images in your jewellery valuation report, help the police identify your items and return them to their rightful owner.
It is important that your jewellery valuations are kept up to date as the value of precious metals and gemstones can increase quite dramatically. If your jewellery is undervalued you will find it difficult to replace with equivalent pieces as your insurance company may only pay out the lower valuation. We recommend that your jewellery is re-valued every 3 - 4 years.

This week is your last chance to grab a bargain in Pebbles Edinburgh's Clearance Sale before the shop closes on Saturday 1st March.
The lease on our Edinburgh shop is coming to an end and although we have been looking for an alternative location we have been unable to find anything suitable.
We would like to thank all who have shopped with us in Edinburgh for your support and invite you to take advantage of the HUGE savings in our Clearance Sale.
These are just a few examples - there are lots more in the shop so please call in this week and bag yourself a real bargain!
Valentine's Day can be a touchy subject.
Do you go for it all hearts and flowers or is it just another commercialised out-dated tradition?
It's a dilemma - you should show your love every day not just on one specified day. But if you ignore it are you destined for the dog house?
Here at Pebbles we are big softies and welcome any excuse to give and receive gorgeous jewellery - whether it's cheap and cheerful or outrageously extravagant.
If you need inspiration for valentine's Day - or any other day - here's our pick of the best.
So whether you celebrate Valentine's Day or not there's always an excuse (reason) to treat someone you love to gorgeous jewellery.
With our January Sale almost over I have got to wondering if we have become a nation of bargain hunters because we have less money to spend or because we have been convinced never to pay full price for anything?
As a result of some retailers running almost constant sales have we lost the ability to see the value of anything unless it is reduced?
As a business we have taken the view that to sell an item for Christmas then reduce it a week later was morally wrong and unfair to our customers.
However, this year we have succumbed to pressure and have drastically reduced selected items of jewellery and handbags.
As soon as this was announced our website and phone lines were red hot as people snapped up bargains.
So I am left wondering has retail been it's worst enemy?
By promoting the idea that to pay full price is somehow foolish and unnecessary has retail (and the media) left consumers confused and unable to judge the real value of a product?
I'd be interested to hear your views.
Those of you that know me, know how much I love a statement ring so you can imagine my excitement when I opened the delivery of a range of exclusive silver jewellery all the way from Greece.

Working in silver and 22ct gold plate, these very talented designers, produce amazing statement pieces of jewellery that are sure to turn heads every time you wear them!
To view this EXCLUSIVE collection pop in to Pebbles Bo'ness and I know you will love it as much as me!
