Tucked away behind Northcote Road’s fashionable boutiques in Battersea is jewellery’s hidden gem. W&W Jewellery was founded in 2008 by third-generation jewellers, Richard and Simon Warrender, to make one-off pieces for clients craving originality and distinctiveness. This is the antithesis of the high-street jeweller.
Combining their expertise with a penchant for the extraordinary, the brothers have created a business that offers a fusion of design and craftsmanship with a passion for truly personal jewellery. The result is a range of exquisite pieces that will be enjoyed for generations.
The studio provides a calm and inspiring environment – comfortable seating and work benches lined with craftsmen’s tools set the tone – where clients feel at ease and indulged. Downstairs is the workshop where a skilled goldsmith brings each piece to life.
Whether clients commission an engagement ring, anniversary gift or remodel a family heirloom, the process of designing jewellery at W&W is an experience like no other. Specialists in converting a client’s vision, taste and style into a remarkable piece of jewellery, W&W provides an exceptional opportunity for clients to engage with the materials, process and design for each commission. The opportunity to hand-pick each gemstone or diamond, carefully sourced and selected by W&W’s gemologist, is unmissable.
There are no boundaries to W&W Jewellery’s design process. From minimalist and classic styles to the most theatrical, each piece is animated by its owner’s character and story. W&W is frequently commissioned to remodel heirlooms. Embracing the spirit of the original jewellery, W&W breathes new life into the piece. The result is a reinvigorated design, which retains its history and will celebrate the union of past, present and future for generations to come.
Using both modern and traditional methods of manufacture, W&W’s designs have a special British flair that is coveted by its international clients. This flair captures the spirit and eccentricity of British style and tradition, without sacrificing quality – a hallmark that has become synonymous with products made in Britain.
So it was that one American couple, having seen the jeweller’s opal ring inspired by the shape of the British boiled egg, commissioned their interpretation of the design as an engagement ring – in honour of their favourite breakfast. Storytelling through jewellery is at the heart of W&W’s identity, taking inspiration from the client’s taste, style and story and transforming it into a unique piece of jewellery.
This year, to mark its tenth anniversary, W&W unveiled its first Jewellery Box Collection, a judicious selection of its own jewellery complemented by notable pieces sourced from further afield. Drawing on the treasure trove of jewellery that W&W has created over the years, the collection takes as its theme unusual and rare gemstones. To launch the collection W&W joined forces with Pickett London, a brand that shares the jewellery firm’s passion for distinctive style, exceptional design and impeccable craftsmanship. The collaboration not only launched
W&W’s inaugural collection but also celebrated British flair and design at its best.
