LBD Gems was established in 2013 and is based in Birmingham, UK.
All of the jewellery is created by me (Dee) at my home studio. My inspiration comes from a variety of places, colours I see combined in an outfit someone is wearing, the scenery that passes my when I travel that sparks a sudden image of a new design, or the way light catches an object casting an unusual shadow of a shape I want to re-create. Sometimes, I see people and instantly see a design that would be perfect for them. I love precious gemstones, the sheer variety of not only families of gemstones, but also how the exposure to different environments around the world and various weather conditions can impact the colour, brilliance, luminescence or clarity. Put that together with the skills of a great lapiderist who creates delicate facets that allows the best illuminations of natural light that showcases the gem at its best.
I love working with precious gemstones, I can stare at them for hours overwhelmed by the endless possibilities for creating a piece of jewellery. I never know where to start! Whether it is for special occasions, every day wear, or just something to spoil yourself, I love to try something different every time.
Jewellery can bring life to an outfit, make you feel great and lift your spirits. Believe me, when you know you're wearing genuine gemstones, that sensation is magnified exponentially! I love to know that what I make can bring that good feeling to someone! So, please, have a look around, and if you don't see exactly what you want, feel free to ask!
