Founded over 30 years ago by master craftsman Guy Whitney. Born and raised in Western Canada Guy eventually settled in England. Establishing a jewellery brand with a recognisable style. Designing, carving and finishing each piece to the highest standard. Strictly using precious metal and the finest quality gemstones. Guy always wanted to do something creative in metal work and appreciated the expertise needed to make high end jewellery. In 1984 this inspired him to attend the John Cass College in London to study Diamond Mounting and Diamond Setting. After achieving his City & Guilds with distinction in 1986 he worked for two Designer / Goldsmith over the next four years obtaining a wealth of knowledge. He's always had his own idea of how jewellery should look and feel and the designs reflect his individual style. Starting out his jewellery business from a small work bench, in the corner of his bedroom, Guy built up a reputation for being the go to designer goldsmith. After growing in popularity he decided to open his first retail space, which was one room on the first floor in a shared shop. Guy now has his own high street retail store, in the historic market town of Brigg, North Lincolnshire. Alongside his jewellery store he has a fully equipped workshop, with over seven jewellery benches and the latest modern technology tools used to make jewellery. This is where most of the behind scenes work is produced. At the same workshop Guy allocates a few days a month to teach up an coming jewellery makers and professionals in the trade practical skills they would like to learn.
