Deciding to use her language skills coupled with her love of diamonds, Emma joined a small diamond buying firm where she learned firsthand everything about diamonds. Now fully exposed to the diamond industry, Emma decided to use her knowledge to start designing jewellery. Emma loves to guide customers through the design process, subtly imparting her skill and expertise, leading to beautiful, one-of-a-kind pieces.

A scion of a Spanish family deeply involved in the arts, Maria has creativity surging through her veins. Initially, she started studying Art History but switched over to Jewellery Arts because she wanted to work with her hands. Now a trained jeweller, gemmologist and appraiser, Maria joins the team after working in Vancouver for the past two years. At Taylor & Hart, she’s able to express her innate creativity by designing timeless treasures for lovers; her greatest joy is helping bring a customer’s idea to life knowing the ring crafted will be forever part of that couple’s love story.
Born in Belgium, Aline started to study craft jewellery at 15, whilst still in high school. She went on to complete a BA in Industrial Jewellery, Object & Accessory Design in Switzerland.
She challenged herself by moving to London to learn English, where she worked for a variety of jewellers. She briefly returned to Belgium to work at Tiffany & Co., before jetting off to New Zealand where she traveled and enjoyed the beautiful landscape. Completing her diploma as a Gemologist with GIA in Thailand, two years ago, Aline returned to the UK to exchange her backpack for diamond jewellery once more. Her wealth of global jewellery experience is demonstrated in the way she fully immerses herself into the design process, committing herself to crafting each customer’s perfect ring.
