Anna Lou is ethnically and locally sourced sustainably-made hand crafted jewellery.
Thank you for stopping by! I believe in an honest sustainable journey. I work with an extraordinary family of artisans employing centuries old heritage and skilled craftsman in London and Turkey.
Almost all jewellers claim to offer ethically sourced jewellery, but dig a little deeper and it’s almost never the case. Anna Lou of London guarantees every element of your jewellery is totally traceable and ethically produced.
Ethical sourcing means protecting the environment and human rights, which is why we hold independent audits on our works and their environment. We use recycled Fairmined silver and solid gold.
Please do feel free to reach out to me if you have any order queries or if you want some advice on a new jewellery making project you may have whilst staying at home! It’s always lovely to chat.
Running a teeny tiny business, I am so grateful for your continued support during this difficult time. We all really must come together and support each other now more than ever before. Please take care of yourselves and others, especially those who may be older and more vulnerable.
Final Thank You!
We can do this. We are in this together. There is hope and thank you for all your support. Don’t forget that wearing a piece of jewellery is always comforting. Do it for yourself even if you aren’t leaving the house!
Thank you for your orders!
It goes without saying but I’ll repeatedly say a massive thank you to everyone who is working through this pandemic. Everyone with front line jobs and all the key workers. NHS workers, teachers, delivery drivers, supermarket staff and SO MANY MORE. You’re all amazing and thank you so so much!
I hope that’s helpful and answered some of your questions. Keep up the strength and positivity and stay safe.
Bye for now folks!
Founder and Creative Director
I imagine you’re here to learn a bit more about me so I’ll try to make it as interesting as I can! I started Anna Lou of London in 2004 with a stall on Portobello Market, making Anna Lou of London jewellery a quintessentially English brand. 3 months later Anna Lou of London jewellery was being sold in Harvey Nichols and Selfridges. Over the next couple of years, the brand was being stocked in international department stores such as Isetan, Henri Bendel and Printemps. When my first child Wilbur was born in 2010 I wanted a piece of jewellery that had my sons initials to keep with me at all times. I started to create more jewellery pieces when my two other children Buzz and Esme were born. My children are my main source of inspiration and help me to create new jewellery collections.
It's taken years of perfecting my skills and working with other very skilled jewellers to do what I do today. I now work from my studio on the beautiful Taggs Island in Hampton Court, where I live with my 3 children and dog Chase. I have the help of my dream team Luisa: PR and Marketing and Nish: Graphics and website design, along with other super-duper packers!
My children are one of my main influences but London and HQ Anna Lou has a huge impact on my jewellery. I moved here 23 years ago and the people and London’s vibe inspire me, there is nothing quite like it after all these years. The jewellery designs I come up with are pieces people want to wear.
When jewellery is personalised it takes on a whole new meaning and importance in a person's life. It's a keepsake piece that can be handed down to your children. You can customise your jewellery with names, dates, initials and birthstones making Anna Lou of London the go-to brand for birthdays, anniversaries, Christmas presents and other sentimental gifts. Because of this, I want to make sure the quality meets the standards the customer is expecting.
I imagine you’ve worked out that I make Britcentric jewellery and accessories including scarves, hair slides, and handbags. I work with the best materials to ensure products last the test of time and even if it takes a little longer while we solder everything which adds even more longevity but I feel that it’s essential. Please do have a browse, come by the studio, or pick up the phone and have a chat with me anytime you want, and if I can’t answer it’s only because I’m busy with my children, but I will get back to you quickly.
