Sassalina is a bespoke fine jewellery company that offers unique, hand-made pieces and was born from a life-long passion for jewellery and gems. Based in London, we can source locally or internationally and advise on any coloured gemstones, white and coloured diamonds and natural or cultured pearls to offer our clients a selection with no limitations. We believe that truly exceptional jewellery should be a perfect reflection of who you are and we love to make that happen.
As a teenager my parents encouraged me to design jewellery incorporating inherited gems and I still wear these pieces today. I believe if the bespoke design perfectly suits the style of the wearer the jewellery will be timeless and the memories held within the piece very powerful.
After having my three children, I was determined to have a second career based on my passion. I started by attending holiday courses at Central St Martin’s in jewellery making. Knowledge of making is essential to design, however quite quickly I knew I wanted to become a Gemmologist. In 2008 I returned to full time study and become a Fellow of the Gemmological Association of Great Britain. I have also attended GIA courses in jewellery drawing. I have been designing for myself since 1983 and for clients since 2006.
