Lauren fell in love with jewellery from a young age, and has since spent years collecting gemstones on her travels around the world. Having studied Gemmology she gained a greater understanding of the stones she has always loved, a passion for which fuels her jewellery designs.
Lauren is inspired by the beautiful, the unusual and the exotic objects she has seen, often finding inspiration through art, or through the handmade craft and textiles of her family’s native South Africa.
After working in the fine jewellery industry Lauren started Goldstone London, her own brand with an aim to create bespoke, delicate, unique and wearable pieces. Lauren has a well developed understanding of luxury design and high quality craftsmanship, and each piece is made by Lauren by hand in London. Experimenting with different textures on metal through wax casting is Lauren’s signature look, creating an organic and individual feel to the pieces.
