It is with these aspirations she started a wave to bring reachable bespoke jewellery design to the high street for the first time, whilst also pioneering ethics and sustainability within the industry too.

Since then, the business has become the UK’s leading bespoke jewellers, with a team of over 40 across four studios. Harriet has been the HSBC Forward Ladies “Retail Businesswoman of the year”, Everywoman’s “Retail Woman of the Year”, and one of The Institute of Directors magazine’s six “women who have most changed the business world”.
