Buying Better

Claire Hill Designs is a Welsh demi-fine jewellery brand creating responsibly-crafted modern heirlooms inspired by hidden beauty.

Each piece is created with longevity, wearability and versatility in mind, because I want my customers to have beautiful jewellery that fits their lives and lasts.

At every step of the journey we consider the craftsmanship, design and sourcing that lets you express yourself with a clear conscience.

By buying better you not only get jewellery that is long-lasting and distinctive, you can also feel-good about how it was made.

14k Gold Vermeil

Pronounced ver'may every single piece has a solid base of 925 recycled sterling silver. Then it is plated with a 14k gold vermeil 2.5 microns thick. This plating is 5x thicker than normal gold plate.

Better for you, and also it means you are not discarding jewellery that has tarnished and dulled after a few wears. This is attainable luxury that’s made to last.



All of my jewellery is made from a base of certified 100% recycled silver.  We only use 925 Sterling Silver so you can be confident that every piece is more sustainable.

Recycling silver cuts CO2 emissions by ⅔ versus mined silver and the precious metal doesn’t lose any of its quality. This technique is more planet-friendly, and recycling silver helps close the loop giving this precious metal a new life in your hands.



Handcrafted from 9k gold designed to last a lifetime - and beyond. This durable precious metal is durable and hard-wearing.

Our UK factory is a member of the Responsible Jewellery Council committed to integrating ethical, human rights, social and environmental considerations into all of their manufacturing process.
