We bring you some of the big names of British fashion.
Agree or disagree with the list, but doubt not that our fair isles pack a punch on the jewellery scene.
O is for Ornella Ianuzzi
P is for Pippa Small
Q is for Quintasexual
Deborah Kelly, the designer maker of Quintasexual, started her business in Birmingham in 1998 supplying shops and galleries across the UK. She has be in business ten years and in 2005 won the British Jewellery Association’s award for excellence in jewellery. In 2006, she relocated to Cambridge and opened her own shop Q Jewellery. Inspired by the curiosity that the everyday robust, heavy substance of metal can become something so precious and special, her designs incorporate heavy texture, strong form and contrasting finishes with the addition of fresh water pearls and diamonds to add colour and sparkle.
R is for Rodney Rayner, Rheanna Lingham,
Rodney Rayner is the king of luxury coloured gemstone jewellery, and his luxuriously passionate collections have won him a number of high-profile industry and consumer awards over the years. Rayner specialises in uncompromising quality matched with injections of dazzling colour and this combination has helped his brand to grow far beyond the British shores and the jeweller now has his own boutique in Japan. Rayner describes his work as individual jewellery for fashion-conscious women, and because of the low number of pieces created the designs are very exclusive.
S is for Shaun Leane, Sabine Roemer, Stephen Webster, So Jewellery, SHO Fine Jewellery, Simon Pure, Susan Morrow
A Master’s graduate of the Pforzheim Goldsmith and Watchmaker School, German born Sabine Roemer trained as the youngest ever female Master Goldsmith. In 2007 Sabine launched her capsule collection of unique jewellery artworks at the Cannes Film Festival and Monico Grand Prix. Soon after, she began a bespoke service and she has been commissioned by a number of high-profile individuals in the sport, music film and political worlds.
