We believe the key to finding a sense of harmony with mother earth starts with bringing awareness to our surroundings, ourselves and each other. A founding part of our ethos is that the production of jewellery should not be a contributing factor to the harming of the planet or humans.This is why each piece of jewellery in our collection is made with careful consideration of production methods, packaging and sourcing of materials. Respecting the planet and its people from start to finish, Emma is proud to present a sustainable and planet conscious brand.Using jewellery as a platform, Emma aims to draw attention to climate change and conceptualise the movement and patterns of changing weather cycles. Each collection has a different theme and important message behind it.

Whether you are looking for acustom signet ring, orpersonalised pendant– we are open to hear all you have in mind! It is always a good idea to have reference images of what you are looking to create. We recommend browsingour collection for inspiration so we can fully understand the essence and style you are after.

Once design and concept has been decided, Emma will email you aquote. Due to the sculptural freeform nature of this work we do not offer detailed drawings. We can provide reference images of the style and basic sketches as required.

We only offer bespoke services for precious metals (silver and gold) and require all metal that you would like to reuse to have a hallmark.
