Bates Goldsmiths

The feel

Bespoke Jewellers in Cheltenham promoting unique design and excellent craftsmanship, with a focus on sustainability. Our independent Jewellery boutique offers an in-house bespoke design service, where we hand make our Jewellery on site.

What’s your story? From concept to creation, we work together with our clients offering a personal design service to discuss and develop your ideas in to something truly unique.

Combining traditional skills with modern technology, we have extensive experience within the industry and guarantee that you will be happy with your finished Jewellery- from Wedding & Engagement rings, to Bridal sets and keepsakes to treasure forever.

Consultations are available in person from our Cheltenham boutique where you can discuss with the Goldsmith directly your ideas and view samples. If you are further away or based internationally, we also offer video discussions (eg. Via Zoom or Whatsapp)



Initially we will meet for a consultation (face to face or virtually) where we can learn of your requirements, Wedding date and initial ideas.

Next we can begin to discuss metal & Gemstone options, whether you have your own heirlooms you are looking to incorporate in to your rings, or if you would like something sourced especially for you.

We have plenty of samples for you to view, so you can see what different metal colours, finishes and design styles look like on the hand. You can customise one of our collection pieces to make it perfectly unique, or let us get to work designing something completely Bespoke for you.

Depending on the complexity of a design and whether we are sourcing specific gemstones for you, as a guide it is usually between 4-8 weeks for completion from this point. This allows good time for any alterations, additional engraving requirements, Hallmarking, etc to be carried out.

We champion quality over quantity and so limit the number of commissions we can take on at any one time. Please aim to book in for your initial complimentary consultation with us in good time to ensure we don’t miss working together.



Our Ethos: Promoting unique design and excellent craftsmanship, with a focus on sustainability – including the use of fairtrade/fairmined/recycled materials and ethically sourced gemstones.

Sustainability: We are committed to ethical making, whereby we aim to produce all of our Jewellery using fairtrade & recycled Gold.

Responsibility: Our hand selected Gemstones are carefully sourced from trusted suppliers. We are a registered Fairtrade Jewellers and Fairmined Licensee. Ask us about having your Jewellery made with the above, and the positive impact this creates for artisan mining communities, and our environment.

Workshop: Handmade in the Cotswolds, UK. Our workshop practices are constantly in review to ensure we are having a minimal impact on people and our environment.


Top Wedding Tip

Allow a good length time to discuss your Wedding & Engagement rings- enjoy the process of creating something completely unique with us, knowing that you have plenty of time to get it just right.


BG Creative Hens

As well as a very limited number of slots for our Wedding ring Workshops, we offer group Jewellery Making workshops for our ‘Creative Hens’. If you’re looking for something different to do with your Hens, we highly recommend a workshop with us, where you will each create a piece of jewellery to take away with you, marking the occassion.

Please note: These are very limited due to our busy workshop. Please get in touch to join our waiting list and for available dates.


We look forward to hearing your Story and creating your future heirlooms together, to be treasured forever.
