About Tamara

Magical rough diamond and gemstone jewellery for those who find beauty in individuality.

Hi, Im Tamara. From my studio at Cockpit Arts in Central London I hand craft fine gold and silver jewellery that celebrates natural beauty and individuality.

Specialising in rough diamonds and gemstones, my jewellery calls to anyone who sees magic in the earth and world around us.

Each piece in my signature Rough Diamond collection is a celebration of the raw beauty of a natural uncut diamond. Just like the people to whom these jewels speak, each piece is filled with individuality and personality. The fine jewellery industry might call these quirks and inclusions flaws, but I see the depth and beauty of a truly unique stone.

My inspiration comes from nature, spirituality and intuition. My greatest joy is working closely with clients to create pieces that mark milestones and celebrate the relationships in their lives.

I was born in Sri-Lanka and grew up just outside London, graduating from the Royal College of Art with a Masters degree in Goldsmithing and Jewellery back in 1997.

In over two decades of experience I have honed my own idiosyncratic approach to traditional goldsmithing techniques. My ideas flow freely as I work directly with my materials, whether for my signature collections or for bespoke and custom jewellery.

As well as creating evolving collections, I regularly work to commission on bespoke designs.

You can buy my jewellery here from my online shop or by appointment from my studio. You can also find a selection of pieces at the Tate Edit Shop at Tate Modern, London.
