Jennie Gill is one of Sheffield’s most exciting, creative and highly skilled jewellers whose 25+ year-long career has garnered fans all over the world.
Known for her modern spin on handmade tradition, Jennie’s signature is the raw energy that each sculptured piece of precious jewellery contains; a quality, which is often lost in mass manufacture.
“My jewellery is invested with the time it takes to make something with my hands. I don’t draw or design on paper; I design at my bench, responding directly to the stones and metals I’m working with. Choices of materials are important: diamonds are all ethically sourced or re-purposed and the gold is recycled.”
Due to the growing demand for Jennie’s bespoke services (wedding and engagement rings in particular ) from an international clientele who appreciate that her pieces are as unique as the stones she uses, it comes as no surprise that each jewel has its’s own narrative.

“Stories are important to my work, I want to capture in each piece a sense of another life, maybe grander, maybe a completely different purpose, but always a past”
