We make beautiful jewellery with inherent value and meaning. Each piece is crafted to the sentiment of the occasion with a personal, insightful attention to detail.
We craft exceptional jewellery by hand using traditional methods.
Everything created is designed and made by us — from our one-off pieces to limited edition collections.
We specialise in making things with as little interference as possible, from untreated raw materials to natural shapes.
The philosophy of bespoke permeates every step we take.
Peter and Sandra personally handle every order from commission through design and into the workshops, where each order is made individually by hand to specification for that customer.
They hand-select every gemstone from trusted, specialist cutters and suppliers – they know the origin of every piece and understand its journey.
Trust, provenance and transparency are at the heart of our philosophy.
”I would like thank you all for the wonderful ring that arrived today and the speed of delivery. … absolutely thrilled with it and it looks better than we had ever thought. Perfect!”
Peter Noble: goldsmith and designer jeweller
Peter started early, joining Moseley School of Art in Birmingham aged 12. He studied at Birmingham School of Jewellery and Silversmithing, following it up with an apprenticeship in the Birmingham jewellery sector. ‘I was privileged to work alongside one of the top avant-garde jewellers of that era at a time when people where creating fresh ways of thinking and releasing unbelievable creativity.’
“It’s important to me that things are made properly, with calm, care and thoughtfulness. I know how each of my pieces came to be, I understand the process and inspiration and I can talk to the craftsman who made them.”
Sandra Noble: designer jeweller
Sandra manages the business and is present at all exhibitions of their work. Her specialism alongside jewellery design is in working with natural colour fine pearls using Southsea, Tahitian saltwater and freshwater cultured pearls.
Meet the team
Peter and Sandra have surrounded themselves with a great support team which facilitates the admin within the business to enable them to personally handle all orders.
We invite customers to use our technical knowledge so that they can make informed decisions at each stage and see what their options are, guided by our design knowledge and expertise.
Working in collaboration, Peter and Sandra design and make all the jewellery in their gold and design workshops on the Lizard peninsula, Cornwall, surrounded by the natural beauty of their 48-acre organic farm. Together they are immersed in producing work of fine quality.
“We are part of a tradition that shines with a value that is imbued in the making”.
Peter and Sandra Noble
Peter’s workshop is where the goldsmithing, gemstone and diamond-setting takes place. Meanwhile, Sandra is in the design (or ‘clean’) studio — so-called as this is where the pearl and cut gemstone jewellery is created, alongside the enamelling and designing, all of which need a light, clean environment. Having a positive attitude to the importance of training we are active in the passing on of skills within the heritage of the discipline. Within our current training programme, we have in recent years undertaken accredited apprenticeship schemes with Cornwall College and are currently working with a goldsmithing intern – Yasmin, who is in her second year of formal training at Plymouth University and training with Peter to become a Goldsmith.
In partnership with their creative work they have established their environment as an organic farm. Their beautiful workshop ecology was established in 1999. Better suiting their design process away from the UK’s traditional jewellery-making centre of Birmingham (where Peter learned his trade more than half a century ago) and London, where Sandra previously had a career in social sciences.
“We chose to surround ourselves with nature and beauty for inspiration, calm and focus.” Peter and Sandra Noble.
The farm has become a Soil Association-certified farm and an ecological centre where they participate in environmental stewardship schemes, working in partnership with the RSPB’s volunteer scheme and Farmers Alliance projects. They have been awarded mid-tier stewardship scheme status and are working with English Nature and the Farming Wildlife Advisory Group to establish a fabulous wild ecology in this rare habitat in this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
