A respected and trusted British family business, Kit Heath design beautiful sterling silver jewellery in a range of classic styles at affordable price points.
Based in North Devon, the award-winning brand has over 30 years of invaluable experience in the jewellery industry. It’s a go-to brand that is internationally desired and synonymous with an understated confident aesthetic, renowned for distinctive, classic yet contemporary designs.
In 1984 brother and sister co-founders Kit Heath and Katie Nickell began their design partnership, taking inspiration from the beauty of their North Devon home and timeless British style.
A young Kit had melted down the family candlesticks to create sterling silver jewellery that he sold to friends and family. His passion for jewellery ignited, Kit went on to sell into gift and jewellery shops from his VW camper van and Katie collaborated and led the creative side.
Kit and Katie appreciate that the Kit Heath woman, is looking for a brand that suits her style; she is discerning in her choices, appreciates good quality and enjoys clothes and looking good, but she is not a slave to fashion.
Designing for her is at the heart of everything they do. Kit Heath jewellery is understated classic with a contemporary twist, which is influenced by trends rather than trendy per se. You can wear it casually or to work and you can pair with a little black dress in the evening.
Taking inspiration from love, friendship and nature, Katie and her team design new collections for launch in spring/ summer and autumn/ winter each year. Core and new lines allow colours, finishes and weights to be mixed and matched, with layering and engraving adding a personal touch.
After pipping jewellery heavyweights, like Pandora, Thomas Sabo and Swarovski, to the post Kit Heath was crowned Professional Jeweller’s Fashion Jewellery Brand of the Year in 2017. The win has cemented Kit Heath as a trusted and aspirational brand within the fashion jewellery sector. Katie commented “It’s really nice recognition and the award says we’re getting it right!”
The brand has grown organically, taking it from a small family-run wholesaler to a recognised brand for designer silver jewellery. Kit Heath jewellery is now sold in both independents and leading department stores all over the UK with a growing number of stockists in America.
Designing beautiful and original jewellery is in Kit and Katie’s blood, and their passion keeps the Kit Heath brand in perfect sync with the Kit Heath woman’s story.
