His work has been described by London’s prestigious auction house, Sotherby’s, as ‘antiques of the future’. Darkly romantic and beautifully crafted, Shaun Leane’s signature style is strong refined and elegant.shaun-leane-boucheron-queen-of-the-night-necklace-openring

A firm favourite of mine, in fact the only earrings I wear, are Shaun’s Signature Tusk long earrings (I’m embarrassed to say I have them in every colour!). They are constantly admired and truly come alive when worn, the sculptural shape of the tusk catches the light with every movement and the classical elegance of the design makes it a winner day or night, whatever the occassion.signature tusk

Rubies for July – Bespoke Jewellery

The birthstone for July is ruby, one of the first bespoke commissions we did was this beautiful ring set with two marquise cut rubies and diamonds.bspoke dbl ruby

We work with a highly respected local artisan jeweller who has over twenty years experience designing and creating extraordinary jewellery. He was one of the first jewellers in the UK to embrace computer aided design which allows you to see your design in it’s true form before the piece is manufactured and can show a range of ideas which can be manipulated to your requirements.

It’s lovely to be able to help design a unique piece for a customer which is individual to them. Each piece is created by hand in his workshop without mass produced designs or parts.
