Alison Fern’s jewellery encompasses sophistication, elegance, quality, and individuality.

I take inspiration from shape and form, my background, and a love of art.”
A family brand founded over 40 years ago, Amore Argento have put quality, luxury, and affordability at the heart of their designs.

Casey Fuchs creates his jewellery using a combination of simple tools and cutting-edge techniques - Casey’s rings are crafted traditionally, while his necklaces are made with the aid of 3D printing technology. All of the pieces sold under his eponymous brand are made using precious materials sourced and produced in Germany.
Serengeti Jewels was founded in 1988 by designer Angelique Millet. An FGA gemmologist, Angelique was raised in Africa and had interactions with gemstones from a young age - this led to a fierce passion that she still feels today. After several years as a gemstone merchant, Angelique realised she could offer far more to her customers by utilising her innate creative talents, so she began designing her own distinctive luxury fashion accessories.
Upon her return to Poland following nearly a decade of travelling the globe, designer Aleksandra Bartnicka decided to take the inspiration from her experiences and share them in the form of stylish jewellery. All of the pieces sold under her brand, Wonder Fine Jewellery, are entirely handmade in Aleksandra’s studio in Warsaw, Poland.
With a passion for crafting silver and gold jewellery featuring natural beautiful gems, designer Julia Chagall draws the inspiration for her designs from French Impressionists, Art Nouveau, and Art Deco styles. Her brand Bijoux De Chagall’s signature is the mixture of silver, gold, and natural and lab created gemstones. Julia believes she can pass her own positive energy to her customers through her jewellery in order to make the world a better place.
Designer Gabrielle Friedman draws inspiration from everything around her - art, architecture, nature, and even philosophy. Gabrielle hand carves her jewellery out of wax, this creates multi-layered textural elements. She also fabricates metal and stone settings using both precious and semi-precious stones. This combination creates an ancient, yet very modern aesthetic. Of her jewellery, she said: “I want people to feel complete in my pieces. My jewellery will reflect their core and inner beauty. It should bring them comfort and joy.”
Founded by Jeffrey Loloi in 2015 to create pieces which reflected his distinctive taste in art and design, SEVEN50 is a brand on the rise.

To ensure these standards would be met, he hand-selected all the gifted artisans and designers who work for SEVEN50. Together with his partners, he creates captivating modern jewellery in New York.
The founder of the Castens jewellery brand, Karin Castens, grew up with the sleek simplicity of “Danish Design”. Her romantic, curvy jewellery combines the user-friendliness of Danish Design with the wild imagination of Hans Christian Andersen’s tales. In her workshop, one-of-a-kind fine fashion jewellery is wrought either from scratch, or using the cire perdue casting technique.
Karina Fagras, the mind behind jewellery boutique Blush & Bashful, draws inspiration from nature, symbolism, and the intricate detailing of period jewellery. Many of her designs feature the flora and fauna of England and have a quintessentially English feel. Of the origins of her love affair with jewellery, Karina said: “As a little girl, I loved exploring my mother and grandmother’s jewellery boxes. It felt like I had discovered a treasure trove. I like to imagine future generations finding my designs and experiencing the same emotions that I felt as a child.”
