Since launching her website and brand in 2013, Florence‘s designs have gone on to be endorsed by big names, including Sex and the City star Sarah Jessica Parker.

Florence‘s jewels have garnered a reputation because of their use of gemstones and D-grade diamonds sourced from around the world.

“Choosing jewellery is an intimate and personal experience,” Florence said.

“Once you hold it in your hands, that’s the moment when everything changes. That’s why it was so important for me to open the London store so people can touch, feel and see my pieces. 

“It’s the only way to truly appreciate the enchanting natural beauty of these rare gems.”
