(Above) Our Founder and Principle Designer, Jessica Flinn-Allen
This week we're celebrating our 10th Birthday. What began as a one-woman show with a single collection, designed in the industrial quarter of Sheffield, has flourished into a thriving team and online jewellery studio. So many of you have shared our passion for unique and unusual designs, and every ring that's passed through our doors has been designed and made with love to capture a magical moment. It's amazing to know that our pieces are out there in the wild to tell their owner's stories for many years to come.
Over the past decade we've lost count of all the amazing moments our rings have been a part of. There's been dog themed proposals, virtual lockdown proposals and lots of down-on-one-knee proposals. We included 'granny's diamonds' in a stunning engagement ring, and sourced one-of-a-kind gemstones for lots of breathtaking pieces. Weddings - oh so many amazing weddings... on beaches, in churches and even a rock and roll elopement in Vegas. We've helped couples mark 5 years, ten years and 40 years together, and all the significant anniversaries between.
And that's not all...
Our team has worked with lots of amazing women to help them mark formative moments in their lives. We've reworked engagement rings to create empowering divorce pieces to give their original stones new meaning. And of course, we've created dream forever rings for women who just want to say 'I love me' - these are always some of our favourites.
What started out as a Jessica Flinn, creating stunning collections and bespoke rings alone, has blossomed into a team, all equally passionate about helping people find the perfect ring to tell their story.
Maybe we should rebrand as Jessica Flinn & Co? Ok, let's no get ahead of ourselves.
If you haven't met our team yet, you can get to know them below.
Now, pass us the champagne!

MOSS & SILVER
Meet Moss and Silver. Moss is our Head of Security (sorry Brian the postman) and loves to join us in the office for cuddles, especially with Emma. Silver, on the other hand, is much more illusive. She joins us to input her design ideas when she feels like it - otherwise she can be found playing in the woods behind our workshop!
