Designer Spotlight: Ruth Tomlinson

Ruth 1.jpg
We celebrate an alternative to the traditional, producing jewellery that is beautifully designed, skillfully crafted, with a sense of enchantment and a touch of the unexpected.

Ruth Tomlinson is a London based jewelry designer with over twenty years of experience. She graduated from the prestigious Royal College of Art in London and established her brand in 2001. The winner of numerous awards for her unique and iconic designs, she is considered to be one of the most influential artisans in the business.

Ruth draws inspiration from both natural and historic sources. She sites the organic and unusual beauty produced by Earth’s own raw materials as a defining feature of her aesthetic, as well as the creative challenge of working with antique gems and recycled materials. A deep commitment to ethics and sustainability, Ruth works with only a few reputable gem dealers.

Each of her pieces is lovingly crafted by Ruth and her team of three highly skilled jewelers - meaning every item is treated with personalized care and attention. Ruth frequently works directly with customers to breathe new life into family heirlooms and antique stones. She strives to evoke a sense of wonder with every piece she creates.

Here at Lapis, we love Ruth’s designs for their timelessness. We frequently recommend her work to couples in search of bridal jewelry a little off the beaten path and to customers searching for the perfect piece to become a treasured family heirloom.

December 3rd through the 6th we will be hosting a trunk show with Ruth Tomlinson. Sign up for our email list to be notified of the details!

We believe that every jewel should be unique, just like each of us, the individuals who wear and enjoy them. That’s why we treat our materials with respect, celebrating their particular character and highlighting their special qualities, whether these are unusual internal inclusions, or the imperfect forms of hand cut antique stones. We believe we offer a unique experience and service to our customers and we cherish the relationships we form through the jewels we share a passion for.
