About

Rough diamond and gem set fine jewellery hand crafted in London, UK

I was born in Sri-Lanka and bought up in Essex, just outside of London in the UK.

I trained in gold smithing and jewellery at Loughborough College of Art and Design in the midlands then completed my Masters degree in gold smithing at The Royal College of Art, London in 1997 and immediately set up my studio in central London.

Over the years my style has evolved, and I now, design and hand craft raw diamond and gem set jewellery that takes its inspiration from nature, spirituality, intuition and experimenting with the materials.

I like my jewellery to evoke sense of raw luxury by creating texture on the metal with tools so that you can often see the marks of making and through using uncut gems that I sometimes polish and cut ‘freestyle’ so that you can still get a sense of the stone in its natural state.

I live and work in London and my studio is based at Cockpit Arts, Holborn which is a thriving hub of craftsmen and designers studios.
We have Open Studio's twice a year so if you are ever in London mid June or end of November please come say 'Hi'.

I have a serendipitous approach to making and ideas and finished pieces come freely from working directly with the materials and taking an idiosyncratic approach to gold smithing techniques.

I regularly use assorted cuts of diamonds including rose cut diamonds and diamond slices.
My signature 'Rough diamond collection' recognises the raw beauty of a natural uncut diamond and celebrates the quirks that rough diamonds have, where certain parts of the jewellery industry would call these quirks inclusions.
I see these so called inclusions as character giving.
They are not flaws.
It’s just nature going about its sometimes unpredictable but awe inspiring business.
A good analogy is to look at us human beings.
Each of us has our own distinctive characteristics.
None of us are perfect and there is always beauty to be found in imperfection.

I sell my work directly from my studio by appointment, here on Etsy and also through my own website www.tamaragomez.com.

When I'm not in the studio I make ceramics as a hobby, and enjoy cycling, yoga, running, cooking, meditation, music, gigs, travel and spending quality time with family and friends.

Additional policies and FAQs
ROUGH DIAMONDS / RAW DIAMONDS
Since rough diamonds are not cut into standard shapes, no two rough diamonds look alike. This makes them highly desirable for those wanting unique personal jewellery.

Due to the unique nature of rough diamonds and the hand crafted techniques I use each piece may vary slightly to the images shown.

I buy all of my diamonds from trusted suppliers who assure me that they support the Kimberley Process which means that they have been purchased from legitimate sources not involved in funding conflict and in compliance with United Nations resolutions.

RESIZING RINGS:
If you order a ring in the wrong size I am happy to resize it for you and I always offer the first resize for free and there after at an additional cost.
I do not accept returns or refunds on rings that are ordered in the wrong size.
