About

Stacking rings and beautiful jewellery handmade in our island workshop in Orkney, North Scotland.

Alison Moore’s approach to jewellery design is organic and refreshingly non-conformist.

She is led by the heart, rather than by market trends, with her inspiration coming from many different sources – childhood memories, walks on the beach, moods, emotions, and the textures, forms and colours of nature.

It was following her honeymoon in Orkney, that Alison decided to change career and pursue her ambition to become a jewellery designer.

As a former geology student, Alison has a particular appreciation for the characteristics of different minerals, so it’s natural that gemstones – all ethically sourced - should feature so strongly in her work. She also enjoys experimenting with different silversmithing techniques to produce jewellery that’s tactile and engaging.

Whilst diverse and distinctive, all of her collections are connected by the themes of purity and practicality, reflecting a desire to create pieces that are simple, wearable and affordable.

As timeless as it is contemporary, Alison’s jewellery subtly reflects the character of its creator, while at once becoming part of your own life story.

  • Ally

    Owner

    Alison Moore, a former student of geology, has turned her love for minerals into an addiction for gemstone jewellery! She creates her pieces on one of the remote islands of Orkney, just of the north Scottish coast.

Production partners

  • Caster of small batches of metal

    Birmingham, England

    The caster enables me to replicate original pieces of jewellery that may take me hours, often days to perfect. Once the rough shape of the piece is cast, I then shape, polish and finish the piece and set any stones.

Shipping
Delivery times

All of our jewellery is handmade, but we do try to keep some items in stock. These will be sent within 4 working days of placing the order. Items personalised or made to order generally take up to 6 working days to be dispatched. Gold and made to order jewellery usually takes a little longer for despatch at around 2-4 weeks. Any time or date stated for delivery is an estimate only. If you require an item urgently for a special date or event please contact us as more often than not we can work to short time scales. Please do get in touch.

Delivery is free to all UK addresses. Goods are sent out using Royal Mail and may require a signature upon arrival.

Packaging

Your jewellery will be packaged safely and securely in an Alison Moore Designs signature gift box, finished with a ribbon. All orders are sent out in plain packaging and will only have the name Alison Moore Designs as the returns address in small on the outside. Each item over £100 will also receive a complimentary anti-tarnish jewellery polishing cloth to help keep your jewellery shiny.

International shipping

Items are sent to overseas addresses via tracked delivery services at a cost of £10 per order. Please note that customers are responsible for all duties and customs charges.

IMPORT DUTY CHARGES – USA & NON-EU COUNTRIES

I have to mark the package with the appropriate customs declaration. This should help minimise any delays but you may attract a customs duty charge. You will need to contact your local customs department for further details. Please bear this in mind when ordering and ensure that you are aware of potential customs charges before ordering.

Customs duty does not apply to packages sent within UK and to countries within the European Union.

The expectation is that you purchase the item within 3 days of the custom listing, or item will be listed in the shop.
