At EC One our range of beautiful diamond earrings come in all shapes and sizes, but regardless of style or budget, all of our diamonds are guaranteed to be conflict free.
Diamond studs are a timeless look and bring a little luxury to everyday life. Our studs are classic single stones or contemporary clusters of pavéd diamonds. At the other end of the spectrum, we have stunning diamond hoops and drops which make a glittering statement.
Of course, if you have a particular design or style in mind, we can work with you to create it in 18ct Gold or Platinum in our London workshop. Alternatively, you may have some loved but little worn earrings that you would like to have re-modelled. Again, we can give them a new lease of life, so instead of them sitting at the back of your jewellery box, they can be worn and loved again.
If you would like any more information about our bespoke and re-modelling service please don’t hesitate to call us or email us at email@example.com

Friendship bracelets are no longer the domain of teenage girls, oh no! Originally these colourful bands were invented by Indians in Central and South America and traditionally woven from thread. According to tradition, you tie a bracelet onto the wrist of a friend who may wish for something at that moment. The bracelet should be worn until it is totally worn-out and falls off by itself, at which moment the wish is supposed to come true.
Here at EC One we have friendship bracelets in all colours, metals, beads and styles. From the traditional woven cord or leather from designers such as Lindsay Pearson and Helena Rohner to more luxurious offerings from our own workshop made with 9ct gold and semi-precious stones.
So if you want to follow tradition and grant you best friend a wish or simply treat yourself to something you can wear every day, we have something to suit every style and budget. Worn alone as a simple nod to the trend or layered in swathes of contrasting colours, patterns and textures, this look is a fun way to show your individual style and update your outfit to suit your mood.
We’ve cherry picked the finest pieces from our sale and brought them to life with some of this seasons most coveted looks.
The Great British problem is that we fill our summer calendar with picnics and outdoor concerts and then have to prepare an outfit which can accommodate every possible weather eventuality.
Londoners will be looking forward to an array of music this weekend from Hard Rock Calling, Shoreditch Festival, Latitude to Traction. What a choice! Here is our Editor’s suggestion of what to wear to keep you warm, dry, comfortable and most importantly highly visible.
Choose a pair of bold, flouro earrings by Dark Horse Ornament, and a beautifully crafted bohemian necklace by Joanna Cave, then add lucite bangles by Alexis Bittar, glitzy resin cuffs by Nicholas King or a cute Lily cuff by Fiona Paxton so you can wave your hands this weekend and let everyone know exactly where you are!
Tears of sharks, heaven’s dew, the eyes of the spirit, or the product of an oyster’s liquid, the origin of pearls has been long been disputed and treasured by man for 4 thousand years. In Roman times they were associated with Venus, the God of love and so became a currency of love and extravagance. In an exuberant demonstration of each Cleopatra dipped one into vinegar and drank it at a dinner party and until the early 20th century the price of a string of pearls could be equivalent to a yacht or a country mansion! Though pearls are considered a “girls’ best friend” natural pearls are in fact rarer than natural diamonds.
Natural pearls grow in mollusc’s; freshwater pearls in mussels and sea pearls in oysters. Once, Scotland was known for its rose-pink pearls and Cumbria for its black pearl. Now however, the wild mussel colonies on which natural pearls depend have become so rare that pearling has been banned in UK river system since 1998. Today natural pearls are relatively inexpensive when compared with their scarcity, this is because of the development of the cultured pearl, which is grown with encouragement from humans who implant tiny organic particles such as parasites into the mollusc’s. Mikimoto was the Japanese pioneer who put this practise to market on a mass scale last century though the actual practise dates back to 5th century China when the undiscerning eyes of travellers along the Silk Road would struggle to discern the natural pearl from its “cultured” counterpart.
Pearls in each case are created from a nacre, an iridescent liquid, which is excreted from a gland inside a mollusc’s when it is irritated by the intrusion of a grain of sand or parasite. Over several years these layers build upon each other, snowballing to create a pearl whose shape resembles that of the original intruder. A perfectly round pearl is rare, just like a perfectly round grain of sand; the larger the pearl, the rarer it is and the pearlier the luster and purer the colour, the more impressive it appears. Large, round, pure pearls are therefore the most expensive.
Today, most pearls are found off Broome in Australia (a large cultured pearls), Tahiti (for black pearls) and China. Pearls are gathered from the seabed by divers who risk their own safety by diving up to 40 metres sometimes relying on an extensive hose which delivers oxygen to him from the surface. In more regulated markets, divers use heavy bronze helmets and weighted boots. But by any means it is a skilled and dangerous job to move a pearl from the sea and string it for a necklace.
The most famous pearl is La Peregrina, which has passed through the hands of 8 Spanish and the late Elizabeth Taylor. It also acheived some notoriety for having endured a chew by her dog but was nevertheless sold for $11.8m in December 2011! Pearls are as delicate as their natural environment and should be kept clear of ammonia, handcreams, soap and ultrasonic cleaners. They can be cleaned with a lint free cloth and should be stored in a soft chamois or non abrasive bag to avoid scratching.
Pearls are the birthstone for June and lore has it that they enhance the power of love, money, luck and protection. In histroy they have been given to children to keep them safe, between lovers to cement engagements and to newleywed women to stop them from crying! Find any reason as Pearls are truly beautiful and magical things.

With all the gorgeous sunshine and warm weather we’ve had in London this week, we at EC One have been getting excited about pulling out our summer wardrobes… Fickle English weather allowing, of course. Bright colours are such an easy way to feel summery, so we’ve put together a few looks with our new summer ranges for inspiration. The best part is that, if the weather does betray us, these pieces will look great with that trusty black jumper, too….
The monochrome base may look simple, but the pops of neon in the jewellery add a quirky sense of fun and individuality.
What do classic china patterns, fruit, Africa and the heavens have in common? They were just some of the themes among the designer jewellery collections at London Fashion Week this week.
