Christine Sadler is a jewellery designer, goldsmith, diamond setter and entrepreneur.
Christine opened her retail boutique with her husband Christopher in 1999 when she was 24. Having trained in jewellery in Glasgow and worked for both small independent jewellers as well as for a large high street jewellery retailer, Christine wanted to create a new shopping experience in jewellery, one where the focus was on jewellery that excelled in design. Her innovative ideas earned the business several prestigious awards including Shell Live wire regional winner 2001, Royal Bank of Scotland PSYBT group business awards winner 2002, Business Insider “Rising Star” 2002 and Retail Jewellery awards Best New Store finalist in 2003. Her boutique showcased a selection of international and UK based jewellery designs alongside her own work. Jewellery is a highly competitive market but even as a new designer Christine’s own designs caught the attention of the blue-chip company Johnson Matthey. Johnson Matthey is responsible for the promotion of platinum jewellery sales globally and after seeing Christine’s designs at Earl’s Court Jewellery show, they chose her work from everyone in the world to feature on their worldwide promotional material for platinum jewellery. The combination of the quality and the innovative design of her products was what impressed them. Images of Christine’s designs are highly sought after by journalists around the world with her work being featured in a diverse number of publications from fashion magazines to science journals.
After several years of selling other brands alongside their own work, it became clear to Christine and Christopher that if they focussed solely on their own collections, it would allow them to give far better service to their clients. This new business model ensures that the products are much more exclusive, that they can be made in any size to fit perfectly and that they can be customised to meet the needs of an individual client.
Christine and Christopher work together and they are both perfectionists. They personally select and check every gemstone that is set in their designs as well as quality controlling every piece before it is ready for sale. They design together and they have come to know that unless they are both in agreement about something, it won’t be the best choice. Working as a couple is hugely rewarding for them and has deepened their communication skills and relationship. It brings a uniquely personal experience when shopping for an engagement ring or wedding ring to interact with the owners of the company who are married. They have created a unique environment. Relaxed and informal with a focus on exclusive designs that can be customised or tailored to suit the individual personality of every client. With a deep commitment to customer service both Christine and Christopher are available seven days a week. When you call their boutique you will be speaking with either one of them and out of shop hours you can contact them by email or Whatsapp. They have lived and breathed their business since 1999 and nothing is more important to them than ensuring your experience shopping with them is unforgettable.
Designer Genes is a playful name for this collection of jewellery that is inspired by the double helix. Our DNA is not visible to the naked eye, just like our family bond but we know that it is there. The beautiful twisted ladder shape of the structure of the double helix in these designs is an elegant way to bring to life this invisible bond. It's a beautiful gift to give to a mother, daugther, sister or aunt
Knot The End
Some people believe that nothing ever ends, but simply continues in a different form and that all endings are beginnings in disguise. Knot the end is a quirky and humorous interpretation of this idea. Each knot is hand tied and therefore unique. The twists and turns symbolise the unique journey we experience in our life time.
Prices start from £85

Fall in love with the natural beauty of Scotland's landscape. This copyrighted collection of jewellery is inspired by the fairy pools on the Isle of Skye in Scotland. The fairy pools are a series of descending rock pools fed by crystal clear waterfalls from the Cuillin mountains. Like a stream that pauses on its journey, white rivers of cascading water fill pools of sapphire blues and greens before continuing on.
There is something intrinsically playful about slingshots. They are associated with mischief makers and laughter. This design which holds a trillion cut gemstone very securely has a sense of fun. One curved edge of the stone is cupped by the metal with a V shaped claw opposite. It looks poised to launch and protect the wearer. The inspiration for this design was to create something using stones that would act as a symbol of protection and a slingshot was the perfect creative solution.
From The Heart
The quirky design of the cocktail glass, which holds the stone, fits into the ring which has a “straight up with a twist” unique fitting. This means you can change the colour of the stone as the mood takes you.
At half past three everything stops for tea. Afternoon tea is an awfully civilised tradition of eating sweet treats to keep energy levels topped up during the day. These moments of rest and restoration to socialise with friends are truely precious. Inspired by this pleasure, the Afternoon Tea collection has precious gemstones set in silver and gold for joyous occasions.
Being a Hero means standing up for what is right, often against powerful opponents. Hero represents the courage and determination of those who sacrifice their own comforts to fight for the good of others.
The pieces in this collection are all different. There is no way to make two identical. The sterling silver is heated until the surface melts. As it cools, it forms unique patterns on the surface. The pieces are then hammered, cut, scratched and drilled. They are basically harmed in every way possible. Rather than try to disguise the history of their experiences, these pieces proudly display the beauty of what they have been transformed into. In addition to the surface decoration, the pieces have a single diamond set in them and a hole. The diamond represents strength and the hole is a Celtic symbol. The Celts believed stones with holes in them were lucky. They also built tombs with a hole in them so the soul was free to travel between different worlds. The diamond and the hole symbolise strength and freedom and I hope they bring the wearer good luck.
