Belong brings together an exciting and eclectic range of exclusive design-led, hand-made jewellery featuring Sterling Silver, Swarovski Crystals (the best!), Freshwater Pearls, Murano Glass, Shell, and more semi-precious stones than I can even start to mention!

The vast majority of our jewelry is hand-made either by us, or by others to our designs and is therefore totally exclusive. We also only make limited quantities in most designs so that way, you are unlikely to walk down the high street and bump into someone wearing exactly the same!

Our philosophy… is to provide jewellery that is easy to wear, and therefore easy to buy as gifts. We aim to bring you exclusive, limited edition, hand-made and design-led fashion jewellery but without the designer price tag! Whilst our pieces have a nod to fashion, all are intended to span seasons and years. They’re not aimed at one particular age group. We’ve found that many pieces may be owned by someone in their forties, borrowed by their late-teen daughter, and their 70-something mother!

Belong allows you to truly wear your imagination – to be individual and to follow fashion without following the crowd.
