Lawley Fine Jewellers is a family-run business in the heart of Kent. Specializing in the design and creation of handmade bespoke jewellery, with 22 years experience going into each piece
We live in an age of technology, of posts, tweets and selfies, of contactless payments, high definition 4K and streaming, Bluetooth, fingerprint recognition, and high speed broadband. There are so many inventions and machines that have been created to make life easier for us, and to save us the one thing most of us have very little of; time!
The jewellery industry is no exception here. CAD (Computer Aided Design) and 3D printing, lost wax casting machines and machine engraving are now readily used to produce jewellery on grand scales and maximize profits. While these inventions save both time and money for mass production companies, the number of handcrafted fine jewellery pieces has significantly declined over the years. Master Goldsmith and award-winning fine jeweller, Andy Lawrence, owner of Lawley Fine Jewellers, is so passionate about his specialty: handmade jewellery.
Andy has been designing and making jewellery for over 22 years and he has always been fascinated with structure and how things are put together. It has been his passion, from a young age, to work out how things are assembled perfectly
Made in Kent
Andy has always lived in Kent, and has spent his career working in both London (Hatton Garden) and Kent. Originally, it was his ambition to become an architect, but on the way to his interview at the Kent Institute of Art and Design, it was the jewellery department that commanded his attention. The jewellery illustrations and pieces, workshops, tools and benches fascinated him. This was a game changer and he hasn’t looked back since!
All of our jewellery is handmade from scratch using traditional crafting techniques that we’ve learned from our decades of experience in the industry. Every item is carefully created from a bar of bullion, which is rare, as most companies use machines for mass production and 3D design. We specialize in engagement and wedding rings, and each one is made with love, care and precision. We work with our clients to produce the perfect piece that reflects their personality. Every ring is unique and means something special to the customer.
We can guide our clients through the whole design process, offering advice on the best precious metals and stones to use. We even offer workshops to make your own wedding bands – under of watchful eye of course! Once the bands are made, we send them off to get the hallmarking added, before we embed any diamonds or other gemstones into the ring. It really does add that extra special touch. Our handmade techniques bring designs to life, and our popular Mokume Gane collection – a Japanese metalwork procedure – provides beautiful one-of-a-kind pieces with a wood grain effect. We are one of only a handful of jewellers in the UK to offer these rings, which makes them fantastically unique.
