The journey began when Alexandra acquired the Augustine Studios property in 1995, unwittingly unveiling a rich history that traced its roots to The Silver Studio design group from 1860 to 1963. Alexandra recognised the significance of this heritage and vowed to breathe new life into its illustrious name. The result was Augustine Jewels, a design studio specialising in crafting exquisite handmade jewellery that beautifully blends the threads of history and modern luxury.

A decade has passed since the inception of Augustine Jewels, and the business is not just thriving; it's expanding. Alexandra Robson, the creative force behind the brand, shows no sign of slowing down.
