We have been ‘FANATICAL FOR DIAMONDS’ for over 50 years manufacturing & designing fine jewellery for clients around the world. Classic or contemporary, traditional or totally bespoke, we are a true niche manufacturer, creating diamond jewellery of exceptionally high quality in Hatton Garden.

Each piece of the Arlington & Co. Collection is hand crafted using traditional methods in conjunction with the latest technology, all in our onsite workshop.

The design of an engagement ring is not just the process of holding a diamond onto the finger but of enhancing it. The setting method, the height above the finger and the shapes involved, are all factors involved in enhancing the diamond.

We personally select every diamond, checking for the cut, clarity, polish, symmetry and measurement. The presence of fluorescence is checked in each and every diamond that we use also.

Once the diamonds have been selected, we design and hand make the mount around the suite of stones. Our diamonds are then each individually set by hand.

Once the diamonds are securely set in the ring it is carefully polished and checked over for any imperfections before presentation.

Hand engraving & seal engraving are beautiful & specialist crafts. At Arlington & Co. we offer the service of both these skilled trades.

Symbols, patterns or messages, can be etched onto engagement ringswedding rings, eternity rings and other items of jewellery, by our hand engraver to create a truly unique and sentimental piece of jewellery.

Seal engraving has traditions that go back to the Middle Ages. When all documents and communications were certified by a wax impression of the senders unique seal. This provided proof it was not a forgery and prevented tampering.

Traditionally these are found on signet rings, usually with a coat of arms or family crest, where an image is cut onto metal or stone to produce a finely detailed impression in wax.
