Biography:

James studied at the Gemological Institute of America in 1993. Once qualified as a Graduate Jeweler Gemologist he joined Asprey in New York until 1998 when he started work at Deakin & Francis®. Most of his early years at Deakin & Francis® were spent on the road, meeting customers across the length and breadth of the UK and Europe.Taking on more roles inside the family business James discovered his real passion was designing new cufflinks “it all starts with a sketch.” His inspiration comes from travelling the world to camping in Africa and to trade shows in Vegas and New York. He wants to offer customers original ideas and top quality craftsmanship. James collects ideas and takes them back to his desk. Soon they are sketched onto paper and once refined the models created by hand or with CAM.James is now also a freeman of the Worshipful Company of Goldsmiths.
