The focus for jewellery designer and FGA DGA gemmologist, Lauren Elizabeth Tidd, is on one of nature’s exquisite treasures – gemstones. Exciting, luxurious designs materialise as a showcase for each gemstone, innovatively uniting modern wearable art and contemporary fine jewellery.
High value precious metals are chosen alongside diverse gemstones, carefully selected for their cut, shape, colour, intriguing inclusions or optical phenomena. The gemstone is the ingredient from which sculptural, stylised creations are then born, executed to the highest standard of craftsmanship and paying great attention to detail. Timelessness, elegance and distinction coupled with stunning visual impact.
Lauren is recently graduated and her collection of one-off pieces and limited edition designs is continuing to evolve. She works from her studio in Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter and welcomes commissions.
