ENGLAND HAS ONE OF THE GREATEST RANGES OF UP AND COMING JEWELLERY DESIGNERS IN THE WORLD. REACHING FROM EVERY CORNER OF FASHION, THESE ARE THE FIVE WE THINK YOU SHOULD KEEP YOUR EYES ON. WHETHER IT BE FERAL CLAWS, GEOMETRIC ELEGANCE OR GOLDEN ANTIQUITIES, NO OTHER INDUSTRY CAN QUITE PORTRAY THE VARIETY AND SKILL LONDON’S JEWELLERY DESIGNERS BOASTS.
The feral nature of Jacey Withers jewellery is what makes him one to watch in the future. His raw treatment of his metal work and use of chemical processes gives even gold and silver a distressed look, when completed with his use of chain and hand dyed leather, his design take on a savage and almost post-apocalyptic nature. His clawed and animalistic forms are the embodiment of his ‘edge of nature’ design philosophy and his trademark innovative use of metal plating techniques (our favourite is the black gold) has won him worldwide attention as well as the patronage of high profile clients and media exposure in Vogue and Elle Magazines. We expect big things from Jacey in the future and can’t wait to see where he goes next.

Based around the ‘dot, dot, dash’ within the famous Morse code, CODE jewellery focuses on sending messages, story’s and love notes within its designs. Using precious stones and intricate markings to construct its designs, CODE has earned a reputation as a incredibly personal bespoke jeweller, their most famous idea being the stacking engagement ring reading ‘L.O.V.E.’ This simple idea is enforced by the designers use of simply immaculate gold’s and brilliant cut white diamonds. Not being limited to the highest of luxury, CODE also produces semi-precious cufflinks, bracelets and a range of other items, all with the ability to tell a story or send a message. So weather it’s a groomsman’s cufflinks reading ‘B.E.S.T. M.A.N’ or a semi-precious bracelet that spells out ‘F.R.I.E.N.D’, CODE is a designer you need to know about.

Sabine G’s spiralling and medieval designs project an heir of enchantment and elegance that wouldn’t look out of place on a fairy-tale princess. The delicacy and colours used give a sense of regal standing to each piece and an aura of wisdom beyond their years. Her use of antiqued gold, diamonds and precious stones allow her designs to be seen as both bold and refined. Sabine G’s use of classic heart and cross shapes make her ‘Relic Collection’ almost ornamental in nature, joining the elegance of antique style with contemporary ideology is something the New Gentry strives to find and we are so happy to have found it in Sabine G.
“I want to make enchanting pieces that make women feel divine and look dazzling.” – SABINE G.

With her bold geometric shapes and soft colours are given life with her completely unique material combinations. Kamper is a contemporary designer with a brand new take on jewellery and a designer we think has married geometry and elegance in such a successful way that we haven seen the likes of it before. With her trademark coloured Perspex pieces each being hand dyed, no two designs are ever the same and her un-ashamedly large components make a statement everyone will notice and want to emulate. Her summer 2014 collection featured a colour scheme we could only describes as perfect, her use of such soft transitional cool shades in a geometric setting is something that could only have been improved be her delicate addition of gold chains and fixtures. We cannot wait to she what combinations will steal our hearts in Kampers next season.

It stands to reason that Flora Bhattachy’s new collection is entitled ‘Lubhati’, the Sanskrit word for ‘desire’, because we want pretty much everything she has made. Her heavy Middle Eastern and Islamic influences have inspired her to create a range that has an aura of shadowy opulence, which is only accentuated by the intricately floral and organic nature her work portrays. Her use of black pearl, amethyst and black plating against such delight gold’s, cognac diamonds, pinks and blues, makes each of her pieces allure to a totally different emotion from the last and we can only wonder at what bespoke creations she has produced for those most lucky of individuals.

We have to admit that the first time we saw Fehren’s collection we feel in love.
Her dark, spiky designs are almost vampiric in aesthetic and the thin, stiff elegance is just additive. Looking through her beautifully gothic collection, we cant imagine not liking any of her pieces on anyone. Although she is not based in London, Fehren’s work is so amazing we had to share it.
