Ruth Tomlinson

Ruth Tomlinson is an independent British contemporary fine jewellery brand creating ethereal jewels imbued with an otherworldly sense of a bygone era. She celebrates an alternative to the traditional, producing jewellery that is beautifully designed, skillfully crafted, with a sense of enchantment and a touch of the unexpected. Each as unique as the individual who wears it, inspiring a life-lasting connection between the wearer and their jewels.

“I am driven by my passion for the earth’s treasures; the magic of minutiae, tiny intricacies, small imperfections, and the individual’s search for preciousness. I seek out the unconventional beauty within and this fuels my creativity, whether in the rarity of material or a curiosity in nature.”

Ruth is committed to sourcing materials in an ethical and sustainable manner. Each jewel is entirely crafted by hand, using recycled gold and individually sourced gemstones. They deal with the same small selection of reputable diamond suppliers that they did when Ruth first started the brand in 2001. Many of the stones are antique, old cuts that have been recycled from centuries past, while others of more recent origin are sourced in the most ethical and environmentally responsible manner, adhering to the Kimberley Process.
