Cornish jewellery to cherish

Prepare to be wowed by seven of Cornwall’s most talented artisan jewellers. This week we’re thrilled to showcase a selection of exquisite jewellery that you won’t want to miss.

Whether you’re looking for a special piece of Cornish jewellery for a good friend, or perhaps a sensational gift for yourself(!) – you’re sure to find something to treasure in these incredible collections.

And if quality craftsmanship, sustainability and affordable luxury are important to you, then you’re absolutely in the right place.

Without further ado, allow us to introduce our phenomenal Shop Cornish jewellers…

C Jane Jewellery

Inspired by the sea, shore and hedgerow, each piece of C Jane Jewellery carries the spirit of Cornwall and reflects the maker’s love of art, nature, and narrative. The collection is handmade in Southwest Cornwall using silver; with copper and bronze added to enhance detail and create texture.

We’re loving the Hedgerow Bangle – a chunky solid silver bracelet with two reticulated pennywort leaves delicately hanging from it. Pennywort can be foraged in the wild and is known to have health superpowers when eaten, so this bracelet acts as a gentle reminder to look out for these healing leaves when outdoors.

Moving from countryside to coast, C Jane Jewellery also features the Tide Pool Collection which includes the Tide Pool Earrings. Three shimmering, silver hoops are interlinked to echo the patterns of waves and tides on the sand.

Gemweyth Sea Glass Jewellery

Skilled maker Becky Edwards from Gemweyth Sea Glass Jewellery handpicks sea glass from local Cornish beaches and works her magic to turn it into attractive everyday jewellery. Her eco-friendly and sustainable collection uses recycled materials and broken glass that has been tumbled and naturally smoothed by the sea. Becky explains that each piece of jewellery tells a unique story, as the glass has been on its own adventure – possibly originating from a shipwreck, some ancient glassware or even an old beer bottle! 

Becky designs and handmakes jewellery pieces in a range of sea glass colours and even welcomes you to send your own sea glass finds to her so she can create a bespoke piece for you.

The Sea Glass Hoop Earrings look as great in the city as they do on the beach. Lightweight and comfortable to wear, these sterling silver hoops are available with rare blue, dark green, light green, yellow, white, or amber sea glass. For a smaller version – check out the 15mm Mini Hoop.

South Crofty Collection

Combining Cornish history with jewellery, the South Crofty Collection uses pure Cornish tin to craft distinctive pieces of jewellery. The South Crofty Tin Mine was the last mine to close in Cornwall and the remaining tin was set aside for the sole purpose of jewellery production.

For a wedding band with a difference, the 18K Gold Ring has been inlaid with a seam of pure Cornish tin. Handmade to order, hallmarked and engraved, you can carry a piece of Cornwall with you forever.
