We celebrate the skill of the maker. We believe in traditional tools and traditional techniques. Our passion is about our traditional craftsmanship and we are big advocates for our small industry. We believe in making quality products that we know will last the test of time. We don't cut corners. The investment of skill, time, and attention to detail is at the very heart of each piece we create. We make by hand and to order, this insures that our very highest standards are met with each and every piece.
As master craftsman we believe in doing things the right way. Age old tried and tested, traditional techniques may take longer but the results are worth it. We make our jewellery by hand with our team of in-house master jewellers using traditional techniques.
We source all of our materials and packaging from quality British suppliers, our precious metals are mostly recycled and all of our packaging is recyclable. We firmly believe in a healthy planet and doing our best to keep it beautiful and healthy for future generations.
We believe that everyone should be able to afford high quality hand made jewellery including good sized diamonds and gemstones. We believe in a sweet spot for gemstone quality, which isn't based on massive mark-ups, certification that no one understands and daunting sales tactics. We believe in beautiful gemstones and beautiful jewellery that doesn't;t cost the earth but can be treasured forever and be passed down through generations as family heirlooms.
We only use Ethically sourced gemstones and go to great lengths to ensure that each of the diamonds, Rubys, sapphires and emeralds we sell has been ethically sourced. We guarantee that every diamond we sell has not been used to fund wars or insurgencies (stones that are known as conflict, or blood diamonds) and has been scrutinized by highly skilled UK based gemologists. Shiny Bomb is committed to eliminating the trade in conflict diamonds and have an auditable means by which we can prove that all the diamonds we sell comply with the Kimberley Process. You can buy diamonds and jewellery with the confidence that your purchase is genuine, traceable and of the best quality. If you would like to know more about how our diamonds are certified or you would like more information about this, please feel free to get in touch.
We believe in GIRL POWER. Our Founder, Siobhan, has always stood up and been counted and we wish the same opportunity for every women on the planet. To promote this we hire mainly women and do our very best to provide them with career opportunities. We actively invest in young women within the community through grass roots sports sponsorship. Details of this can be found on our home page.
We don't design for seasons or trends and we don't have a calendar that sets out the regularity of how often we design new work. Instead, we focus on ensuring each piece we add to our collection fits with our design aesthetic, is well tested and has robust production processes in the workshop that ensures durability and quality. Creating new work isn’t a fast process and not one we want to rush. We believe that it is a process to be enjoyed and cherished and often where the best design ideas are found.
Making each piece in our workshop is at the very heart of the brand and of great importance to us as people. With our traditional making background, continuing and encouraging the use of these hand skills is of paramount importance to us and sets us apart from the competition. With our expertise in making by hand as well as in-depth knowledge of industrial processes, we’re always pushing ourselves to learn more, develop and grow, not just as master craftsmen but also as people. The ongoing investments we make into the workshop allows us to continue to produce every element in-house, from tooling through to the finished piece.
