One of the most influential jewellery designers of the last five decades, Elizabeth is an artist who uses gold and precious stones instead of brushes and paint.
She takes her inspiration from a wide range of influences including architecture, animals, art, and nature.
Our jewellery collection includes rings, necklaces, earrings, pins and brooches, bracelets, pendants and cufflinks. Every piece is unique and we have a wonderful collection to suit a wide range of preferences.
Our Belgravia boutique is at 5 West Halkin Street, London SW1X 8JA
Elizabeth is well known for her attention to detail and the different textures she uses for her gold work. Whilst studying on the Greek island of Crete, she learned how to make traditional gold beads known as granulation which are often used geometrically on jewellery. She wanted to use this ancient technique in a completely new way and the result is her free flowing scattered gold beads mixed with wire work designs. This is known as her wire and granulation finish and is a signature on many pieces.
Town & Country's Isla Cunnigham came to our salon in Belgravia to meet Elizabeth and discover the unique world that Elizabeth and her timeless jewels have created over the past 50 years.

“They say that ‘necessity is the mother of invention.’. This became true for me in the 1980s when I observed that the change in fashion, which put women back into suits, would present me with a fine marketing opportunity for pins. I would have immense creative possibilities to incorporate ancient artefacts, newly-carved stones and luscious pearls.”
