AFFIYETTE jewellery is founded by Julia Neill, a London based designer who arrived at jewellery from a prestigious background in fashion. Working for a number of high profile brands most recently as a consultant at Net-A- Porter, for ten years before launching her jewellery label AFFIYETTE in 2016. Julia was born and grew up in London, surrounded by creativity from an early age which developed into a love of design and craftsmanship across disciplines.
Julia trained at the world- renowned Royal College of Art firstly in fashion and now within jewellery. Julia chose to train in jewellery because she wanted to do pursue a different field, which had a completely different agenda and new set of codes to explore and she was keen to work with something in which people invest.
AFFIYETTE jewellery is characterised by modern iconography and an innovative use of metal creating jewellery to complement your identity.
AFFIYETTE’S passion for contemporary art, particularly sculptors such as Barbara Hepworth and Richard Serra have influenced the debut collection. Elements of the AFFIYETTE range are designed to be gender neutral and can be worn together to create a powerful personal style statement.
The debut colletion elevates the mundane into modern luxury. Referencing iconic objects of the past AFFIYETTE redefines their purpose as fine jewellery.
Every piece is hand-crafted by Julia at the AFFIYETTE studio and hallmarked in London with the finest craftsmanship. AFFIYETTE jewellery combines a passion of metal with an obsession for detail and perfection.
