Robinson Pelham: Great British Brand 2023

‘In 2022, we marked our 25th anniversary as only jewellers would – that is, by making jewellery and introducing fabulous new additions to our existing ranges and launching new collections. These included “Entwined”, a capsule collection comprising two dazzling geometric diamond rings with overlapping surrounds. Inspired by a bespoke engagement piece, they symbolised a union of two. We also introduced our “Zouk” earring collection, with its distinctive flicked-up edges inspired by soundwaves, and “Labyrinth”, a collection of rings and pendants featuring a physical maze, whose path and centre are depicted in gemstones, focusing on a journey of positivity.

‘Sourcing raw materials and working with suppliers has become an issue over recent times, but we are lucky to hold long-term relationships with the most respected in the business. We are also encouraging apprenticeships and training people in specialist skills so that we have numerous options on the doorstep rather than relying on, say, one overseas specialist. As a drive to become more independent and to minimise air miles, we are also working with more freelance goldsmiths who are based here in the UK. We’re working towards production security, so that we have all the skills and everything we need within our own walls. 

‘This year, we’ll be extending our “Ear Menu”, which is our entry level, bestselling collection. It has 13 hoops in four different sizes and 120 charms, or EarWishes, making for over 6,000 possible combinations. We didn’t think we would need to introduce more, but many people collect them, so the line is being extended due to popular demand. About ten years ago, we used to throw piercing parties and people absolutely loved them, so we’ve decided to revive these as a slightly late anniversary celebration in late spring. They’re going to be a great deal of fun.’ Zoe Benyon, co-founder
