supplier of repair and makeup service, Jonathan May the Proprietor of
the business started his career as a hand engraver at Jacob Kramer

Studying hand engraving, Heraldry, enamelling
and makeup of hand crafted jewellery. He then moved to his first
position as a working jeweller within the manufacturing side of the
industry. Progressing through the ranks of full time polisher to jobbing
jeweller, covering most aspect of the repair side of the trade, working
alongside old school jewellers who then made every item by hand.
time went by I was taught how to start with basic stone setting and
gradually developed my skills as a craftsman. I now specialise in
bespoke diamond set jewellery from simple contemporary to advanced
classical French Pave style work.
All pieces from design to creation are
Hallmarked to British standard. Recently working alongside Master
craftsman Alexandre Siderov on an advanced stone setting course in
Belgium, has made me aware there is sill so much to learn after 24 years
in the industry.
