About us

Olivia Esme Jewellery and Gifts was started by myself and Laura in 2015.
Since starting in the jewellery and watch industry almost 30 years ago I had always dreamed of starting my own business, but like all dreams, time got in the way.
Laura studied jewellery design and worked on the benches designing and making her own jewellery for several years before then going into the retail side of jewellery. She still makes her own jewellery in a workshop at our home selling to friends and on Etsy.
I had been suffering a medical condition for many years which I tried not to let drag me down but unfortunately it eventually got the better of me and just last year I needed several emergency and life changing operations which left me unable to work. 
It was then that I guess we decided that it was the perfect time to realise our dream and start our own business full time. Rather than sitting and using an illness and recovery as an excuse, we used it as a boost to do something we had always wanted to do. 
As well as retailing other brands jewellery I have also starting making beaded bracelets and jewellery myself by hand in my workshop. This had added a great personal product to our site and something I will be working on to eventually make into a brand itself.
Deciding on a name was simple, what was the most amazing thing that had happened to us? Our daughter Olivia Esme.
Happy shopping.

Simon, Laura & Liv.
