BEYOND OUR CORE TEAM
To create our rings we work with a number of small, family run businesses. From a network of specially-selected gemstone suppliers around the world, to Dimitar, a mastercraftsman who sets and finishes all of our pieces in London's famous Hatton Garden, we forged relationships with some of the industry's best to make our fine jewellery happen.
