We launched at London Jewellery Week 2009 to bring short-run, high-design, affordable jewellery to collectors, stylists and fashion editors. The collective brought together a group of talented designers who could support each other at various stages of business development, to buck the trend of high street homogenization.

In June 2012, ten of JeDeCo’s members joined forces to open a studio retail space in Oxo Tower, the iconic art and design destination on London’s South Bank. A showcase for an eclectic collection of contemporary jewellery, our gallery offers designs to suit all tastes and budgets, from diamond-set fine jewellery to experimental pieces in acrylic, rubber and concrete. Our diversity is dazzling.

Our designers are happy to tailor their designs, or create bespoke jewellery to specification.

Designers taking part in Jewellery Week:
Anna Loucah, Annika Burman, Catherine Marché, Cindy Dennis Mangan, Debbie Carlton, Dennis & Lavery, Doreth Jones, Emma Lavery, Jewellery by Emma Rose, Kareece Peters, Katerina Damilos, Nicola Crawford, Quarter Angel, Rosemary Lucas, Sian Bostick, Sima Vaziry, Saint Michael, Stephanie Bates, Zarafa.

Heart Ring 2/2

After my client had told me which heart she liked the most, I proceeded to finish her little heart ring.
 I first domed the heart shape, then soldered it to its ring shank. I selected a lovely little white diamond, and added it to her heart for a symbol of eternal.
After polishing, here is the result.

heart and diamond ring

I hope you like this little ring too .
She did and is getting married with it as I write this post.
