Celebrity Jewellery Designers
Celebs are often admired for their jewellery, but what about some of their jewellery designers? There are a number of up-and-coming names who make these fabulous pieces and they deserve a mention too.
Here are some of the brightest stars in jewellery making a name for themselves and attracting a steady celebrity following:
Based in Australia at the Recreational studios, Emma Swann has fast become a popular name among celebrities. The Studio specialises in creating gold and silver jewellery for men and women, which can be engraved for that extra personal touch.
The business was launched less than a decade ago and now has a turnover of $2 million. Emma Swann’s creations have attracted even more attention after being seen on Kate Moss and Rosie Huntley-Whiteley.
2. Ariel Gordon
Ariel Gordon’s spectacular range of designer jewellery has captured the imagination of several high-profile personalities, including Gwyneth Paltrow and Erika Christensen. And given the fact that the designer only started up in 2009, her rise to fame could be described as meteoric.
Her jewellery is often worn by celebs on the red carpet – and Kate Winslet and Drew Barrymore wear the gold love knot ring, which is one of her most recognised creations.
Jennifer describes her style as “simple with a spiritual twist”. Her jewellery is available in gold and silver and is favoured by Cameron Diaz and Jennifer Lopez.
However although Jennifer’s range has attracted the attention of celebrities, it remains accessible to the everyday consumer. Prices are reasonable – ideal for those who don’t have a superstar budget.
4. Alyssa Smith
Alyssa’s passion for jewellery is lifelong: her business had humble beginnings and she first started making jewellery in her bedroom.
Although her range was only launched in 2010, she has quickly become a favourite with the stars. Today Alyssa has an extensive line of jewellery for both men and women, her own motorsport collection, and she also takes on bespoke commissions.
5. Maheep Kapoor
Maheep Kapoor studied at the Diamond Institute of Mumbai and began her career by making jewellery for herself. She now works as a designer at Satyani Jewels, who specialise in fine gold and silver diamond jewellery.
Kapoor has carried out high-profile commissions for some of Bollywood’s biggest names, including Shilpa Shetty.
