Welcome To Design2Desire
Design2Desire was established in 1997 in Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter, by Manoj Parmar.
After studying at the School of Jewellery, Manoj pursed a career in design and hand crafting bespoke jewellery.
Focusing on simple forms, and adding the element of colour in to the designs, created a starting point for the project. The ideas soon flourished into pieces of jewellery, and gained immediate attention. The different ranges of items soon followed with the use of precious and semi-precious stones and a variety of coloured metals.
The creation of Design2Desire came due to the lack of jewellery which was catered to the individual.
Designing and creating individual pieces of jewellery based on the person’s style and inspiration have become the benchmark concept of Design2Desire.
If you have a design that you would like to have made in a piece of jewellery, please feel free to get in contact

What People are Saying
I have had 3 rings designed by Manoj. One is my engagement ring second is my wedding ring and the third was a ring as a Christmas present. He was so professional in his approach to what we wanted. He was asking us questions, communicating and advising us every step of the way. He also showed us what was happening at different parts of the development. I would recommend Manoj to anyone who loves hand crafted jewellery.Joy Hickman

“I couldn’t have asked for anything better”
12 years ago I had my amazing wedding ring made for me. It is a one of a kind ring in 18ct white gold and diamonds. I wanted something different but with my favourite Marquee shape diamond. When he showed me his design for my ring, I couldn’t have asked for anything better.
” I am truly amazed at how beautiful and unique with the finished piece”
I always wanted a pendant with my birthstone to wear everyday, but never found anything that was nice and unique. Manoj was able to create a beautiful pendant in silver with a pear shaped peridot stone. I am truly amazed at how beautiful and unique with the finished piece and how he showed me every step of the process from design to the final finished pendant. I hope to get more designs made by him as they are so beautiful!
“His craftsmanship is exquisite!”
What an amazing guy! Manoj made me two rings as presents for family who were over the moon about them, his craftsmanship is exquisite! I’d thoroughly recommend him.Tara Young
“It’s a pleasure to wear”
I was provided with a great experience of designing the ring I always wanted. I adore the rare sapphire found for my ring which has slight tones of blue and yellow making it more unique. It was beautifully set in a rose and white gold wrapped band. It’s a pleasure to wear and I am very delighted with the end product.Jaskarn Gill
