How it works
Share your idea with us
We can show you gems in-house, designs via email or even use a private Pinterest board to display a collage of collaborative ideas. Whatever works for you?
Finalise the design
Once we have a strong design concept, we can explain the key fundamental elements of jewellery. For example a diamond’s colour, clarity, carat weight and cut all have a bearing on the price.
However, many people don’t realise the symmetry and polish has a huge impact on a diamond’s lustre.
This is why it’s always best to view a diamond before a potential purchase.
With this additional expert knowledge, you will have complete confidence in your new jewellery.
Commission the items at a competitive rate
Utilising our network, built from decades in this highly specialised business – but without the overheads of a storefront and everything that entails – we provide our clients with a competitive edge on price.
We can arrange a bespoke diamond engagement ring from £500 all the way to a diamond ring that can cost the same as a private jet. Either way, the service is the same – friendly relaxed and approachable.
Synonymous with luxurious jewellery for over three decades, the Wood family have been creating stunning pieces in The Lanes, Brighton, since 1986.
As one of Sussex’s leading exponents in the craft, Kellerwood’s central boutique welcomed increasing numbers of happy clients as their reputation grew. After 32 years, John and Katrina retired from the business in 2018 and handed over the reins to son Russell, passing down a wealth of knowledge in the trade.
He now provides a bespoke service from either the comfort of his home studio in Hove, premises in mid Sussex, or an office in the London Diamond Bourse, for more exclusive pieces.
Russell Wood Fine Jewellery is the continuation of the Kellerwood legacy, with its own unique identity.
"I source and create exceptional fine jewellery. I’m very proud of my profession. The most important aspect of this age-old craft is imparting some of the knowledge I’ve accrued from my 25 years immersed in the trade. I relish educating my clients through the exciting process of purchasing their gems – it’s a lifelong passion.
I offer competitive prices and clients have the luxury of being able to view the jewellery, in comfort, before they buy."

Valuation for insurance
We can value items of jewellery, for insurance purposes, at one of our premises.
To give you an example, you may have inherited some items and are unsure of their worth.
You can leave your jewellery with us. Or, we can make notes, photograph it, and hand it straight back.
Repair and re-modelling
Bring your old jewellery to life!
Or perhaps it can be remodelled so it can be worn again by future generations?
We only deal with conflict-free diamonds and gemstones
We are an independent business and therefore have close ties to our global network of gemstone providers.
We guarantee the source of all our gems is conflict-free.
"We wanted to buy a bespoke sapphire ring, not knowing exactly what we were looking for, and went to Russell Wood because we knew he offered an excellent personal service.
Russell advised us on the range of options for stones and possible settings. They sourced a number of different sapphires, within our budget, for us to view and we were able to find our ideal stone to be set alongside two perfectly matched diamonds in our chosen platinum setting.
The project was expertly overseen and was completed within the agreed timescale.
We are absolutely delighted with our finished ring and would thoroughly recommend Russell for his friendly help and advice, attention to detail, and superb service overall."
- I & S
"My wife and I have been clients to Russells family fine jewellery company for twenty years.
During that time Russell has created a number of items of jewellery for us most recently in 2017 an aquamarine ring.
He chose and set the stone which, as usual, was the finest quality with a colour and cut which regularly prompts complete strangers to comment on its beauty.
I cannot commend Russell's abilities more highly. I would recommend him without reservation to anyone."
