Q & A

What is your earliest jewellery memory?
My mum has a ring my father bought for her 50 years ago. It is star shaped with four dark garnets and has a millegrain setting mounted in 18ct yellow gold. I fell in love with it as a child and still love it today.

What is your favourite gemstone?
My favourite gemstone without a doubt would have to be a diamond; their rarity and sparkling beauty makes them timeless and connects your love story to those that will follow after.

What advice would you give someone looking for a bespoke piece?
You can mix and match elements of the designs you like and combine them into the ultimate design that ticks all the right boxes for you.

Describe your jewellery style in three words?
Innovative, distinctive and unique.

My favourite period of jewellery design

My favourite period of jewellery design

My favourite period of jewellery design has to be the Edwardian era, because of its elegance. In contrast to other concurrent styles of jewellery, such as Art and Crafts and Art Nouveau, Edwardian jewellery design was extremely understated and highly feminine in style. Edwardian jewellery often featured millegraining, which allows artists to create pieces that are softer and lighter in appearance. The pastel, delicate haute couture fabrics of that time were complemented by the platinum and diamond creations. Iconic pieces included dainty brooches, bows and garlands, all delicately crafted, while necklines were adorned with simple chains, suspending a delicate pendant or gemstone. Much of the jewellery was designed to replicate the fluid fabrics of that era: the lightness and delicacy of each piece made them stunning from every angle.

My Favourite Piece

This pair of earrings are reminiscent of the Edwardian and Art Deco drop earrings, with the long glittering creation that dangle so delicately. With its range of mixed cut diamonds, this modern day design has captured the elegance to move naturally and sway, especially when worn with light flowing garments. By using different cuts of brilliant baguette pear and carré cut diamonds, it ensures that each one acts differently and independently in the light, producing contrasting brilliance and sparkle as the earrings move.

The following piece is that of the beautiful amethyst and diamond set thistle brooch. The entire piece was custom made in-house. For this piece, the amethyst was cut specially to create the unique look. The flower bud is hand set with diamonds of an extremely high quality. It is well known that the Scottish thistle plant symbolises bravery, courage, and loyalty in the face of treachery, whilst the tough, prickly spikes of the plant itself suggest endurance and fortitude. Added to that is the purple of the amethyst, representing the colour of nobility and royalty. As such, the piece embodies many types of virtue and heritage.
