Claire Troughton is an established jewellery designer with almost 22 years experience. She makes collections of silver jewellery, inspired by nature as well as individual wedding and engagement rings from her Chester studio.
After completing 3 years of training at Edinburgh College of Art, plus 1 year in Birmingham's historic Jewellery Quarter, Claire began making her own jewellery in 1996. She soon established a strong following and now sells her collections in almost 40 shops and boutiques throughout the UK and Europe. Claire's exquisite attention to detail and her striking use of gold and silver help to create her distinctive style.
Every item is hand made in the UK with the help of a small but highly skilled team. Claire makes each original design for her collections by hand using traditional goldsmithing techniques.
Popular pieces from the collections have been featured in glossy magazines such as 'Cheshire Life' and 'Look' Magazine and she has won several awards for her work.
Claire loves nothing more than to help bring her customer's dreams to life. Whether this be the perfect engagement or wedding ring, marking the birth of a baby with a special gift or recycling old jewellery into stunning new pieces, the possibilities are endless. Claire will listen to your likes and dislikes in her Chester studio and offer you the benefit of her knowledge, but always allowing you to be involved in the design.
