Our history

Ivan Cornelius has over 30 years of experience in the jewellery industry both in England and New Zealand.

Ivan specialises in hand made jewellery having worked for top London companies with commissions including the Duchess of York’s wedding necklace and a necklace for the late Princess Grace of Monaco.

Ivan learned his techniques in London, over a five-year apprenticeship with a Jewish family whose special skill with antique jewels go back generations. Where other jewellers may use mass-produced moulds and castings, Ivan’s creations are skilfully worked by hand at his purpose-built bench with a collection of pliers, saws, engraving tools and files.

Ivan models the most delicate of stone settings in precious metals including platinum and 18ct Gold.
