Commissions by Alex Thiel Goldsmith
Commissions by Alex Thiel are hand made, one off jewellery pieces.
Alex can create a new jewellery from old gold and silver pieces that have a very high sentimental value. Those can mean family precious belongings and treasures. Thiel’s specialty are hand made, designed especially for a client, engagement and wedding rings.
Imagine commissioned wedding rings, hand made especially for you from old family heirlooms. Using metal from bride’s and groom’s grandparents. Amazing symbol of a union of two families becoming one. Or picture an engagement ring with a gemstone from your or her mother’s ring. It would only show dedication and blessing from both families. Beautiful start of a new life together.
