Biography:

The Nicholas James ethos has always been ‘less is more’. We thrive on designing beautiful sculptural contemporary jewellery with our focus on engagement ring and wedding ring sets, mainly in platinum and diamonds. We are now diversifying into coloured gem set jewellery but always with the distinctive simplicity that characterises our style.

We design jewellery that should be worn – not kept in a safe. We design with the customer in mind and balance aesthetics and craftsmanship with the practicalities of what is required for every day wear. Our speciality is platinum and we consider that we are master craftsmen in working with this most precious of metals. We will often succeed where others won’t through years of experience and patience, sometimes even surprising ourselves!

Nicholas James jewellery is a statement of understatement and we strive to improve with every piece we make. We are pushing our styles harder and becoming more diverse with our ranges, but without compromise to quality or craftsmanship.  I love the idea that all this Nicholas James jewellery will be being enjoyed by people long after we have gone.
