Shane Hinton

Jewellery Craftsman

Specialising in

Engagement Rings

Shane can design and handmake the Engagement Ring you've always dreamed about - a classic solitaire, an antique reproduction or a free-formed organic style.


Another one of Shane's specialty skills is the art of hand engraving. Beautifully chiseled wedding rings, signet rings, cufflinks and dress or Engagement rings. With it he designed and makes his Initially Collection - exclusive to Hinton Jewellers.


Perhaps your 1980's jewellery is looking a little out-of-date for you now and you'd like something a little more contemporary. Book an appointment with Shane and he will help re-design it into something you love, using the same stones & metal where appropriate.

Signet Rings & Reverse Seals

Shane hand forges his signet rings. The advantage of this is that the gold or silver is compressed through hammering and rolling, which engraves beautifully. It allows the metal to be cut with the finest clean detail and gives superior wear, unlike the mass produced cast rings of today.

Wedding Rings

Book a consult with Shane to design your Wedding Rings - whether you'd like a fitted wedder or an all-in-one Engagement/Wedding Ring, Shane can design something perfect for you. He also has a range of gents Wedding Rings for those who'd like something a little more unique.

The Initially Collection

Exclusive to Hinton Jewellers is Shane's Initially Collection - gold or silver discs worn as either a pendant, ring or bracelet hand chisel-engraved with your choice of initials or dates to commemorate that special person, time or place.

Estate Jewellery

A large proportion of Shane's work comes from clients who have inherited jewellery from a loved one but which either needs a little TLC or is re-designed into something more to the wearer's taste, sentimentally using the stones or metal from the original piece.


Shane specialises in all types of jewellery repair and restoration. Most jewellery should be checked on a regular basis for wear and tear. Many a client's diamond has been lost through neglecting claw wear, and chains will wear quickly if dirt is trapped between the links. Shane is more than happy to cast his eye over your jewellery anytime free of charge.


Having 40 years of hands-on experience, Shane’s expertise in the jewellery field is extremely sought after.

Clients come to Shane because he not only gives them personal service, but is also the one who produces their beautiful work and operates his Business with honesty and integrity.
