How did your brand begin?
I used to work on Bond Street with some fantastic jewellers and I wanted to adapt some of the beautiful designs I was working with for a more affordable budget.
Where do you get inspiration for your designs?
From a big mix of places, things I saw working on Bond Street, the V&A, Instagram, clothes, architecture...
How do you ensure your jewellery is ethical and sustainable?
By keeping a close eye on it all! We opted not to be a fast fashion type of business so we can keep a closer eye on how our items are produced and we only work with sustainable, man-made stone suppliers, including Swarovski for our coloured stones!
Are there any celebrities you would love to see wearing your designs?
Lots! Our designs are all about the sparkle so could definitely see our designs in a red carpet situation!
If you could only wear one piece from your collection, what would it be and why?
The Fortune 5 Carat Radiant Cut Ring. It's just so sparkly and fun!
Do you have any exciting future plans and where do you see your brand in 5 years?
Lots! We started out as made to order and are moving over to keeping stock - and we have lots of new designs up our sleeves too!
What's the best piece of advice you've been given? (And have you actually used it?)
'You aren't superwoman' Essentially to manage your expectations of yourself! I have definitely started listening to it more over time.
How do you ensure you’ve got a good work/life balance?
That has been very tough, mostly by listening to my family!
Which 3 current or historic figures would you have over for a dinner party and why?
