"The jewellery a woman wears is a reflection of her personality, it beomes a part of her. For this reason, it is so important to me that I create jewellery that is made to last, made to treasure".
Luke Rose was established in 2015 with the vision to create a new luxury brand with an emphasis on "Slow Fashion". Luke is passionate about a sustainable approach to design, rejecting the mass production and chemical laden processes used in gold plating. All jewellery is made by hand in Australia using responsibly sourced or recycled solid gold and silver.
Luke has developed his own distinctive style, growing his brand from Sydney via London. Each piece embodies the underlying values that only a trained craftsman brings to the process. Unfailingly wearable, his delicate designs are advocated by the most discerning celebrities - Jessica Alba, Kelly Rowland, Megan Blake Irwin and Jessica Gomes, elevating his work as the fashion-forward jewellery to be seen wearing. Australian sweetheart Sophie Monk refers to Luke as her "favourite Aussie designer" and Luke recently designed and made her stunning engagement ring.
After training at the Sir John Cass School of Art in London, Luke created his first collection in 1996. Soon after the success of his graduation show, he was picked up by prestigious London jewellers Jess James, where he was head of design and production for 10 years. It was here where he crafted his ambitions to create handcrafted pieces with a new unique aesthetic.
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.
In 2017 Luke's talent was officially recognised in his adopted home country after he was announced as a finalist in The Jewellery Design Awards Australia.
Luke's work has been published in Vogue, Elle, Grazia and 10 Magazine.
