THE DESIGN PROCESS

1.

For bespoke creations, we invite you to collaborate with our designers in conceptualising and crafting a Temple of the Sun piece that is uniquely yours. This journey begins with understanding your vision and preferences, followed by selecting the finest materials and integrating meaningful symbols, ensuring that your bespoke creation is not just a piece of jewellery but a reflection of your individuality and story.

At our Byron Bay studio, the bespoke and ceremonial journey is a personalised and immersive experience. After initial contact, we gather more details to arrange an appointment, either in our Byron Bay showroom or virtually, tailored to your bespoke or ceremonial needs.

2.

An in-store bespoke appointment is a comprehensive and luxurious experience. Upon your arrival, you'll be warmly welcomed with refreshments and Turkish delight, creating a comfortable atmosphere for a collaborative design discussion. Our designer, equipped with preliminary sketches inspired by your references, works closely with you to refine these concepts. If you haven't provided prior references, sketches are crafted during your appointment to capture your vision. This interactive experience allows you to try on rings, get professionally sized, and explore our range of loose gemstones.

3.

Following your appointment, our designer will send you digital renders of design prototypes, fine-tuning every detail to ensure it aligns perfectly with your vision. Finally, we carefully source diamond or gemstone options that match your design preferences and budget, crafting a piece that is truly unique to you.

This bespoke journey at Temple of the Sun is not just about crafting a piece of jewellery; it's about creating a story, an experience, and a memory that resonates with your personal narrative, within the serene walls of our Byron Bay headquarters.
