At Lebrusan Studio, we know jewellery has the power to make the world a better place. In our mind’s eye, we see a jewellery industry that serves as an active force for good; one that redistributes wealth more fairly through supply chains, that champions human beings, their legacies, their knowledge and their skills, and fosters gratitude for the extraordinary natural materials once offered up to us by Mother Nature.
By sharing our sharing our knowledge with our clients and peers, maintaining vigilant approaches to traceability, investing in small-scale miners and local craftspeople whilst also embracing pre-loved materials already above the ground, and taking careful steps to minimise our carbon footprint at every stage, we create jewellery that furthers us in our journey towards a fairer and healthier world.
For us and our clients, this is jewellery to feel truly proud of. Dreamt up by award-winning designer, visual artist and creative activist Arabel Lebrusan, our engagement rings, wedding bands and unique bespoke commissions encapsulate traditional craft techniques and a distinctive mix of cultural, historic and aesthetic inspirations.
Arabel's distinctive designs are reflective of her unique frame of cultural reference. With nearly two decades of experience in jewellery design and a long list of accolades under her belt, Arabel is a multifaceted artist and sculptor who specialises in timeless heirloom pieces that will be cherished by generations to come.
Encapsulated in our collections are nature-inspired motifs, delicate forms, ornate band engravings achieved entirely by hand, sumptuous coloured gemstones, allusions to the Art Nouveau and Art Deco design periods and homages to Arabel's Spanish roots, namely in the form of intricate filigree. With a broad variety of designs to satisfy a range of budgets and personalities, Lebrusan Studio is the perfect jeweller for open-minded, ethics-conscious individuals who appreciate innovative design that will stand the tests of time.
Time-honoured craft techniques underpin Lebrusan Studio’s entire portfolio of jewels, all of which are created exclusively in the UK. Conceived first by Arabel and her accomplished and visionary team of designers, each piece is finished in Hatton Garden by skilled craftspeople who specialise in their particular stages of the process - from polishing to hand-engraving and gemstone setting.
Lebrusan Studio’s collections are a showcase of intricate hand-engravings, each totally unique by nature. From florid vines to ornate scrolls and romantic heart motifs, these painstakingly hand-scored designs are reflective of the brand's passion for reviving heritage and championing traditional craft. Arabel Lebrusan believes that human beings are the most valuable vessels for knowledge and skill. People like Darren, the master craftsman behind the hand engravings, are vital links in the chain that ensure centuries of history are passed on from one generation to the next.
Lebrusan Studio exists as an active force for good; a means of altering the jewellery industry from the inside out. We're passionate about sustaining individuals and communities, knowledge and traditions, animals, marine life and ecosystems, and everything that we do is reflective of those priorities.
We offer a carefully selected pool of material options, enabling our clients to commission jewels that are either minimal in environmental impact or active in socioeconomic benefit. An opportunity to minimise one's carbon footprint, our recycled gold, platinum and diamonds are available to create new from old, starting new chapters without the need for any further mining. Meanwhile, traceable options like Fairtrade Gold, Fairmined Ecological Gold and artisanal Ocean Diamonds are an opportunity to better distribute wealth down jewellery supply chains, championing small-scale miners and their communities, and ensuring that the benefit of a purchase is felt by them, too.
As an ethical business, we know the scope of our responsibility extends beyond the simple act of creating ethical products. We want to put our money where our mouths are, so we also engage in a variety of charity work. Every quarter, we donate a fixed quarterly sum to The Water Project's programmes in Sierra Leone, a country historically decimated by civil war, human rights abuses and environmental destruction at the hands of the diamond trade. With the help of One Tree Planted, we also plant 10 new trees in Colombia's Choco-Darien rainforest. for each piece of jewellery sold. You can learn more about our Treasure for Trees initiative here.
