I’m Katherine and I just love jewellery (obviously.) It’s been ever-present in my life. I’m a child of 80s London—the jewels were big, and I’ve always been bewitched and transfixed by the beauty of great gemstones. Jewellery has the power to transport us. I believe that if you really still your mind and just look at a beautiful jewel, you will feel a calm come over you as you let go and enjoy the peace of watching something absolutely perfect doing its thing: playing with the light and dazzling. For me, it’s like watching Beyoncé sing a cappella, utterly mesmerizing.
Katherine James Jewellery started as a way to support my personal jewellery buying habit, but has grown into a little dream team. Our offices are in Hatton Garden, the jewellery district in Central London, UK, and while we continue to operate as online only, our team is always here to support you with any request you may have for more information, images or just help deciding on your next beautiful piece.
We have a love of historical, antique and vintage pieces (hello, Antiques Roadshow, my favourite) and acquire pieces from several distinct sources in order to curate the best possible collection for you to choose from on a weekly basis. We love stumbling upon period pieces in fantastic condition which we can give another lease on life and will in turn become treasured heirlooms in your own lives. This is also our way of taking a sustainable approach to coloured gemstones, Diamonds and precious metals. We also include reproduction pieces using the best possible qualities of gemstones and metals, so you can enjoy the original look of a spectacular period piece without any worries of daily wear. For more information on how we approach our process, please read more about UK Hallmarks, and our certification and refund policies.
