Jewellery as a form of storytelling has been a part of Antonia’s life since she was young. Like many of us she grew up fascinated by the heirlooms and trinkets her mother and grandmother kept, and the amazing stories of the women behind them. This interest led to her studying Costume Design at Wimbledon College of Art, where she became frustrated by history’s continued male lens.
Antonia wanted to design a ‘ready to wear’ Collection that reclaimed the female narrative. So she did - each design starts with podcasts, articles and books on her muse, before creating the mood boards and collections that form the pieces of jewellery themselves.
Her goal is to create designs that celebrate female strength - empowering the wearer through stylish, powerful and uncompromising pieces.
Frustrated by an inability to find jewellery that felt powerful and resilient, we set out to do things differently. Antonia Guise designs pieces that are bold, empowering and truly reflective of the women we know.
Each piece in our ready to wear Collection is inspired by female stories from the past, crafted to shed light on, and celebrate the unheard stories of incredible women. Designed to be stylish, yet strong - we see it as everyday elegance…
Our eye-catching ready to wear collection quickly got noticed and requests for bespoke jewellery started to drop into the Antonia Guise inbox. And so Bespoke; by Antonia Guise was born.
Bespoke; by Antonia Guise specialises in bold Engagement Rings and the re-design of family Heirloom Jewellery. We create truly unique and modern pieces that will be cherished by the generations to come.
We don’t believe in poor quality, or fast fashion.
Every piece of Antonia Guise jewellery is made by hand, in England, using 100% recycled metal and our talented team of Goldsmiths, who specialise in quality products, responsible standards and are paid fairly for their amazing skill.
All the metal used in our Bespoke Jewellery is recycled and any stones are sourced from dealers with the highest ethical standards. Our Diamonds dealers all adhere to the Kimberly Process and our larger Diamonds come with GIA certificates.
Our Ready To Wear Collection is made from 100% recycled silver, coated in 3 microns of 24 carat gold, to produce a gold vermeil finish. And we include a 3 year guarantee, meaning we will re-plate or repair your jewellery should anything happen to it during this time.
Everything in our Collection is exclusively designed and periodically released in small batches to avoid waste.
Each order arrives with care instructions on how to keep your piece looking its best, and packaged in a wooden box, that’s built to last as long as the jewellery itself.
We don’t believe that building a successful business should be at anyone’s expense, including the planet. We donate 0.5% of our revenue to Stripe’s Climate Carbon Removal fund.
