About Philippa Holland

British born jewellery designer, started designing in 2003 after completing ‘The History of Jewellery’ at Sotheby's and gemology at the Gem-A. After extensive travels in India and gem buying in colourful Jaipur Philippa established herself as a jewellery designer and created Philippa Holland Fine Jewellery, based in Notting Hill, London.

Her first creations made from tourmalines were patronised by Roger Waters of Pink Floyd. Philippa continued to design jewellery using a mixture of gems and gold, picking up a glittering following of celebrities and friends. Her work sold across the world in high end fashion boutiques and private sales, the original designs catching the eye of the media and press coverage has been extensive.

In November 2008, the Financial Times credited Philippa for being one of the leading young British jewellery designers.[1] In 2010, Philippa’s jewellery was featured in “Fashion for Jewels:100 Years of Styles and Icons,” a book written by UK Vogue’s Jewellery Editor, Carol Woolton.[2]

Philippa largely draws her inspiration from the worlds of nature using organic objects such as seed pods, leaves and insects. She uses a Renaissance ceramicist technique, “casting from life.” The pieces are electro-formed and cast in gold and silver, highlighting with gem stones and enamelling, thereby transforming these raw objects into exact replicas of wearable art. All the jewellery is produced in small workshops in England, further giving the brand a British identity.
