Vivienne Ailion has been a private jeweller for over 30 years and has a vast and exclusive list of clients all over the world including many celebrities. Whether it’s a bespoke piece or item selected from her studio, her focus has always been to understand the the body and mind of the client that will ultimately wear and adorn the item. One-on-one relationship and personal correspondence is key to her modus operandi and success.
Vivienne’s dedication to stocking the latest pieces, designing new items, sourcing stones and trending brands is matched only by her incredible ability to transform old jewellery into stylish masterpieces.
Vivienne derives immense satisfaction from assessing and re-modelling old pieces of jewellery or unset stones. She feels that, reading ones client but still being able to take cognisance of trends and having clients who are happy to be at the cutting edge of design, is very gratifying.
Therein ultimately lies Vivienne’s strength and satisfaction. At her studio there is always the latest fine and exclusive designs and contemporary pieces to choose.
As a high school teacher with a bachelor of arts background Vivienne began trading jewellery and soon after realised it was a passion.
Thirty years later and wiser, having quietly grown and come to realise her strength as an exclusive and personal jeweller, Vivienne has achieved great success in designing for Hollywood film stars or forecasting trends and remodelling, and has established a venerable reputation both in the industry and amongst her high profile clients locally and internationally.
Vivienne pride’s herself in being able to recognise her clients’ individual and personal style and can advise with them, while assessing their personality, their look, the latest trends and always with budget in mind. She has always enjoyed the intimacy of one-on-one relationships with her clients all around the world and is proud to be called their personal jeweller.
“The artistry in sculpting any piece of jewellery is knowing the person who will wear it.” Vivienne Ailion
” I have never had a desire to open up other stores and feel strongly that without the experience and quality that I dedicate to my studio the personal touch and attention I give my clients would be lost. My success and reputation has grown from word-of-mouth and referrals and not from any commercial or trade advertising. I travel often and host private open days and shows to a limited audience, while most of my time is spent one-on-one. ” Vivienne Ailion
Vivienne started the studio 30 years ago and is still dedicated to being personal, exclusive, and having the latest and the best designs.
Lynne has been passionately managing the studio for several years with a real dedication and pride for our clients.
