The Diamond Setter is an independent family owned business located in the beautiful Royal Tunbridge Wells, Kent. Gavin and Lorraine came back to England in February 2020 to reunite family roots, but struck by the crisis of 2020. Like most people, the pair lost their job prospects and with companies halted hiring, they had to evaluate and ground themselves to what is essential and what they have built over the years. Digging into courage, a slither of light during the dark times appeared. Founded in the middle of a global pandemic, The Diamond Setter is a brand anchored on honesty and positivity.
The inspiration behind The Diamond Setter is to create an unintimidating jewellery shopping experience accessible to everyone. Promoting unique handmade jewellery, designed and made in England, focusing on skills, craftsmanship and dedication to each and every jewellery piece.
Gavin is a highly experienced jeweller as well as a diamond and gemstone setter with nearly 20 years bench experience. From years spent in Hatton Garden creating jewellery for renowned brick and mortar high street brands, working for Rolex repairing watches for high net worth individuals, discovering origins and story of gemstones in South East Asia and all the way down to New Zealand as a master jeweller and diamond setter, Gavin has a solid foundation in creating bespoke jewellery. He has a love affair with diamond and stone setting, the core of his craftsmanship.
Lorraine believes that everyone should have access to fine jewellery, that there should be something for everyone. Jewellery shopping should not be daunting and instead, an experience allowing you to be yourself. With years in customer service, her eyes are focused on customer's experience.
Design and Materials
The pair draws inspiration from their travels across three continents where their ethos are shaped by both beauty and challenges of everyday living. Gavins attachment to the ocean is a driving force in his creativity whilst Lorraine dwells on the feminine touch and comfortable luxury.
The Diamond Setter primarily works with Sterling Silver and 9 carat gold supplied by merchants whose commitment to the environment is to only use recycled raw materials where possible and limit their impact on environment. Their discipline and processes adhere to UK's environmental regulations which are among the stringest in the world.
Quite simply, each piece is unique. Although the pattern, the size, and other components look the same, there will always be something different from other pieces. It is like a thumbprint, it only belongs to you. The Diamond Setter's special customisation feature on the website reinforces this concept. For the first time ever, you can choose the placement of your gemstones with a touch of your finger, and without an extra fee. All jewellery pieces are handmade to order, apart from a very few that we showcase on shows and pop up clubs.
The Diamond Setter's humble workshop is located in the beautiful Salomon's Estate in Royal Tunbridge Wells, a borough not far from London where modern life blends in with the town's natural beauty. With minimal jewellery display, you will find the studio is inviting you to look behind the scenes and inspect life on the bench. If you are local or happens to be traveling in this direction, you are more than welcome to make an appointment and take a peek at the skills and talent involved in creating a jewellery piece.
Operating on a small production means unnecessary waste are eliminated which are common in mass produced jewellery business. All jewellery pieces are handmade to order. A closed recycle production is practiced in all aspect of the operation, including keeping of lemel and scrap. No work is outsourced enabling us to support local talent. From conception to delivery, it is all done under one roof, crafted by talented artisans. Your jewellery comes in an eco-friendly luxury box finished with a beautiful matt black leatherette, made of FSC® (Forest Stewardship Council) certified material. Our sustainability does not compromise the quality and luxury of our unique handamde jewellery.
