About Arabel Lebrusan

Arabel Lebrusán


“Arabel is an extremely talented jeweller, her taste is exceptional and her attention to detail really sets her apart. She has great flair for interpreting a client's design concept, not to mention enormous skill in executing the finished product. I have been complimented so many times about the jewellery I have from her, and have really enjoyed every piece. She is a charming person on top of it all, a real gem!”




It's now been over 15 years that I've been dedicated to beautiful jewellery – I started as a fashion jewellery designer, travelling around the far east and learning the ins and outs of the trade –  the good, the bad and the ugly. Masters in Central St Martins followed, with a deep research into ethics. Then as the creative director of Leblas Jewellery and for the last 5 years as the designer/conductor of my very own brand –  Arabel Lebrusan. I've been very privileged to have people speak very generously about my work and I've done my best to always deliver the most beautiful pieces, not just on the surface but also in the integrity of the process. 

Beauty in design 

I am truly committed to beautiful jewellery. Investing in a piece of jewellery made by us means owning an exquisite accessory which will give you a lifetime's pleasure and which you will want to pass onto succeeding generations to enjoy. 

Our bespoke pieces are truly one-of-a-kind and designed purely for you, and the hand-crafted nature of our Filigree collections ensures every piece is unique in its own special way. We also offer Limited Edition engagement ring designs for that extra-special touch, with only 25 of each design ever made. 

“she is both a visionary and a creative who has an urge to make. With more and more bespoke commissions coming in, she says she is happiest in a bubble, when she is designing, proving there is a repose to balance to her furious creative bluster. She swears she is slowing down, but we can’t see any sign of it.” Professional Jeweller - Hot 100 

Beauty in craftsmanship 

I only work with the people I respect and trust. I only commission the best craftsmen in both the UK and Spain to bring my designs to reality. I support artisans in small Spanish towns where jewellery making is a valued craft; the skills for which are painstakingly passed down from one generation to the next. Without their hands their skills will be lost. 

“the ring is so delicate and feminine. The flowers are amazing and beautifully subtle. The engraving is also perfect - thank you so much for making such a wonderfully crafted ring"  Siobhan- 2015

Beauty in ethics

Like you, I don't want to support any kind of exploitation - whether that's of individuals who don't have the economic means to defend themselves, or environments which can't cope with the chemicals and processes traditionally used to extract gold from the earth. And that's why I insist that all the precious metals and gemstones that we use are sustainably and ethically sourced. 

"Arabel was one of the first UK jewellers to embrace Fairtrade Gold and remains a passionate advocate for responsible jewellery.  She is influencing the way industry and consumers view jewellery – using her collections to help change the world." Victoria Waugh - Faitrade Foundation. 


We are a small dedicated team who love jewellery and know it can be quite a process to choose the best for you. That's why we love taking to you about what you need and are always happy to show you examples of our work. It's always a personal service with us because jewellery is always personal.
