About us, by House of Shaun Leane

Shaun Leane Jewellery

Shaun Leane is a British jewellery designer best known for his sculptural pieces created for Alexander McQueen. His eponymous jewellery brand is a four-time winner of the UK Jewellery Designer of the Year award.

In 1998, a buyer for Harvey Nichols approached Leane with a view to stocking his first collection. This led to Leane putting together his first commercial collections, which used elements from his work for McQueen. In 1999, Leane founded Shaun Leane Jewellery, a company producing jewellery collections alongside his large-scale fashion pieces, combining traditional craftsmanship with modern design and computer-aided design techniques. His designs are sold online and at retailers in Britain, Europe, the Middle East and the United States. Shaun Leane collections include Entwined, Signature Tusk and Cherry Blossom.

Leane's signature style fuses his traditional goldsmith skills with the world of fashion. He takes inspiration from the art and fashion worlds, from history and nature, from romance in literature and poetry, combining his traditional goldsmith skills and early days restoring antiques from the Art Deco and Victorian periods with a fashion slant from his years working with McQueen. Sotheby's described his jewellery as "antiques of the future."

Leane has worked with Givenchy, Boucheron, De Beers, Bacardi and Clé de Peau Beauté. Shaun Leane Jewellery has been acquired for the permanent collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, and the Fashion Museum, Bath. His fine jewellery has been worn by celebrities and artists including Björk, Daphne Guinness, Sam Taylor-Johnson, Elton John, Emma Watson, Kate Moss, Sarah Jessica Parker, Kate Middleton and the Hassanal Bolkiah.
