We are proud that a tiny part of Scotland is included in every exceptional piece we make, from The H&I Bridge, inspired by the Forth Bridge, to the breathtaking inspiration that helped form our Loch Leven Earrings.

Burns' Night

Robert Burns, the Bard, was a poet and larger than life character born in 1759. Whilst much of his writing is written in traditional Scots, he became accessible to all via his writing in standard English or with a light Scots dialect. His poetry now known worldwide.

Every year, Robert Burns is celebrated on the 25th January.
