Biography:

Jessica Poole is an award-winning goldsmith, jeweller and specialist in the technique of micro pave diamond setting. She uses this beautiful mode of diamond setting to create sparkling lines of ‘diamond light’, which accentuate the fluid forms and soft clean lines of her work. Her signature style is feminine and elegant; each piece of fine jewellery impeccably hand crafted, with a timeless quality that will endure the fickle nature of fashion.

Jessica primarily works to commission, creating bespoke engagement and wedding rings, as well as one-of-a-kind pendants, earrings and bracelets. Years of traditional training in Ireland and Antwerp, along with experience working for some of the biggest names in jewellery in London ensure that Jessica can advise clients on stone selection and guide them through the design process. She works closely with clients to translate their ideas into a finished piece of jewellery, beginning with sketches to refine ideas, before making and setting each piece by hand. Visit Jessica’s website to view a selection of past engagement and wedding ring commissions as well as one-of-a-kind earring, pendant and bracelet commissions.

Jessica’s training has instilled in her a passion for traditional skills and best practice. Bringing these values into her own business she ensures that each piece is made with the utmost care and craftsmanship, creating unique fine jewellery to be treasured. Jessica is committed to continuing the long tradition of craftsmanship in the UK by passing on her skills and is currently training an apprentice diamond setter with support from QEST.

Jessica also offers a diamond setting service to the trade and sets for some of London’s most highly regarded designers. Skill and commitment to quality is evident in all of Jessica’s work and ensures that her services are in high demand.

Jessica’s studio is conveniently located in Central London, close to Hatton Garden; the heart of London’s jewellery trade. Contact Jessica for more information on her diamond setting and design services, or to book a bespoke design consultation.
