A graduate of London’s prestigious Royal College of Art, Ruth Tomlinson established the brand in 2001 and continues to investigate the unpredictable and push boundaries of perceived preciousness in her critically acclaimed jewelry collections. She is considered by industry experts as one of the leading influences in the current generation of jewelry designers. Her unique luxurious designs and precious materials, drawn from the earth’s natural resources, are brought together with the notion of being treasured forever. Committed to sourcing materials in an ethical and sustainable manner, each jewel is entirely crafted by hand using recycled gold. Individually sourced antique old cut gemstones from the Georgian and Victorian eras are hand-cut by eye to glow under candlelight. Each piece is as unique as the individual who wears it, inspiring a life-lasting connection between the wearer and the jewelry.
“I am driven by my passion for the earth’s treasures and the unconventional beauty within. This fuels my creativity, whether in the rarity of material or a curiosity in nature. My inspiration is drawn from both the mysteries of historical jewels and the ephemerality of nature's life cycles. I hope to evoke a sense of wonder around the work; handcrafted and ready to be filled with its own story - throughout our lifetime and generations to come.” — Ruth Tomlinson
