"Everybody treasures quality jewellery; you build a unique attachment to it because it is a reflection of your true personality. My passion is to create jewellery that accentuates the beauty that you already possess".
Luke's unique talent for jewellery design became evident in his late teenage years when he started creating unusual pieces in plastics. These proved to be extremely popular amongst his peers and were regularly featured in the press. He was then accepted to study diamond mounting at Sir John Cass, a department of the London Guildhall University, world renowned for its jewellery and silversmithing.
He quickly excelled and graduated in 1996 with a distinction, winning the prestigious David Morris award for diamond mounting, together with first prize in the Goldsmiths awards, becoming the only student to have ever achieved this impressive double. It was clear that Luke would go on to make a name for himself as one of London's top jewellery designers.
After leaving university, Luke joined the team at prestigious jewellers Jess James in London's Soho where he was head of design and production for 10 years. In 2006, Luke Rose Jewellery was born and Luke was soon in high demand for his exquisite, handcrafted, bespoke jewellery.
In 2010 Luke won the distinguished 'Design and Innovation Award' with his stunning, Hollywood inspired 'ICON' necklace. He became one of the only designers to win the award for the second time in 2013 with his 'SLIDE' ring. This stunning, 'Mondrian' diamond ring inspired his current 'SLIDE' collection.
Luke's talent had been recognised and in the same year he won a Goldsmiths Craft and Design Council Award - the Oscars of the jewellery world.
2014 brought huge excitement as Luke fulfilled his lifelong dream of emigrating to Australia, the country he loves. This luxury Australian brand showcases Luke's passion for high quality design and craftsmanship. All the jewellery is lovingly made by hand in his Sydney studio. Jewellery...made to treasure.
