Stephen Einhorn has always had a passion for design and in 1995 he sold his successful advertising model-making company to open his design studio, workshop and shop in Islington. He wanted to concentrate on his own designs using the many skills he had developed over the preceding years.
He was one of the first designers to focus on men, having noticed a large gap in the market for men’s jewellery. Paul Smith commissioned Stephen’s very first men’s jewellery collection plus many subsequent collections including a women’s jewellery collection sold as ‘Stephen Einhorn for Paul Smith’. Stephen has designed men’s retail ranges for A Bathing Ape, Alfred Dunhill and Takeo Kikuchi, amongst others.
Stephen wanted to make his designs and brand inclusive and at the core is a commitment to celebrating individuality and not being afraid to be yourself and express who you are. When his E-commerce website launched in 1997, it was the first to have a dedicated gay and lesbian weddings section (advised against commercially, but over-ruled by Stephen & director Jane Best) which was and remains hugely successful.
Another of Stephen’s pledges when he started his label was a commitment to social, environmental and ethical responsibility. This continues today and runs through every part of the business, from responsible sourcing of materials and employee work/life balance, local community charity work, to recycling waste from the shop and workshops. Every piece of packaging used at Stephen Einhorn has always been made of either recycled or recyclable materials, from the very first day 16 years ago to the present. Our current packaging took Stephen two years to source and develop as he wanted every single part of it to be recyclable, and not to use plastic.
With his technical background, Stephen enjoys employing new techniques and technologies in his designs and is continually pushing the boundaries and experimenting with different materials. The 2000 year old Thames Wood excavated from the first Roman Port facilities built circa 63AD that Stephen uses in some of his designs, was particularly challenging, needing to be stabilised and protected when used alongside precious metals.
Delicious Strawberry Heart necklace. This has been lovingly pavé set by our fabulous crafts persons with no less than 136 brilliant cut stones ranging from 1mm to 2mm. This is a real collector’s piece and will hold its value for years to come. Handmade in sumptuous precious metal, the chain is approximately 42cm long and the pendant 26x24x10mm. The same size as a large juicy English strawberry, but slightly more valuable and no extra sugar needed! Made to order in a variety of precious metals and stones. Rubies like a real strawberry? Or diamonds like an unripe one…? Use the drop down menus to make your selection.
As a born and bred London designer who runs my own fine jewellery label and workshop, I am proud to be part of London’s vibrant creative scene and feel passionate about keeping British jewellery design and production alive and flourishing. Part of the reason for starting my own company was a really strong desire to develop, and at the same time promote, British craftsmanship which is slowly disappearing from this country. Britain used to have a strong tradition and reputation of manufacturing and design all around the world. It’s a tragedy that this is not being nurtured. In my own small way I want to bring it back. I want to use these skills and I want to pass them on to others to use. I’m lucky because my customers seem to feel as strongly about this as I do and have been loyally supporting me for 16 years. I want to build on the solid base I have already got, and feel excited about my company’s future.
