What is Odissa?  


Odissa is a marketplace of online jewellery shops consisting of members of The Guild of Jewellery Designers catering for the growth in designer fine handmade UK jewellery and brings you the best of thoughtfully curated modern creative workmanship.

 

The platform was created by The Guild of Jewellery Designers as a place for jewellery designer/makers to offer jewellery learning courses, showcase and sell their products and help to maintain and grow the British Jewellery making industry in the face of cheap foreign imports.


We choose jewellery designers who are committed to handmaking products from their own original designs, providing you with a stunning collection of unique works for you to wear and send as gifts to discerning friends.

 

Unfortunately we are unable to offer the Odissa marketplace for overseas sellers to list products.

 

Explore Odissa's Jewellery shops UK and find the pieces that make you individual.

 

Odissa allows shoppers to discover, follow, and engage with independent jewellery designer/maker brands with unique styles from around the UK.

On Odissa, it's easy to not only discover but also connect with emerging brands and the creators behind them. Because each designer on Odissa is in charge of managing their own shop, fulfilling orders, and setting their brand’s policies, any questions regarding shipping details, delivery times, sizing, order specifics, and returns should be directed to the brand owner of the shop. 

You can find each brand owner’s contact information on their site profile page.

Feel free to join our Facebook group, Odissa Republic, where you can meet the designers first hand, ask questions or even get help commissioning your own pieces. Odissa Republic on Facebook

 

The Guild of Jewellery Designers have added a trade section to complement their B2C Odissa selling platform, allowing designer/makers and jewellery brands to sell online at wholesale prices  to verified business customers. The spinoff website, Odissa Wholesale, provides a business to business (B2B) capability geared towards commercial users and not available to private consumers.

The new GoJD service enables jewellery suppliers and service providers, both sole traders and larger businesses, to showcase their products to corporate customers, ranging from tools and equipment to contemporary and fine jewellery.

Here we explore some reasons why this happens.   First of all what causes the discolouration?   Silver turns black when kept in the air because it reacts with sulphur compounds such as hydrogen sulphide (H2S) present in air ...

Demi-Fine Jewellery? WTF?

posted by admin at 05/01/2019
What is 'Demi-Fine Jewellery? Yet another made up buzz phrase but, what the heck, let's run with it as this is what jewellery on Odissa is all about! :-) Demi-Fine jewellery is the mid point between costume jewellery and fine jewellery. It takes elements from both and allows more affordable price points to the upper end fine jewellery level by using lower priced materials such as plated Silver, lower carats of gold, Platinum and Palladium, mixing different metals, precious and non precious, Sapphires, lab created diamonds etc ...
