About The Designer

Anabela Chan is a London based award-winning designer, who arrived at jewellery from a prestigious background in architecture and fashion.  Jeweller to The Stars and a champion for laboratory-grown gemstones paired with high jewellery designs, artisanal craftsmanship and a focus on sustainable innovations, her creations are worn and loved globally from Beyonce, Rihanna, Lady Gaga, J. Lo to Taylor Swift and members of the Royal Families. With no advertising and strictly discovered through word of mouth, her unique jewels and objets d’art are presented at some of the most exclusive boutiques in the world including Harrods London, Lane Crawford Hong Kong, Luisa Via Roma Florence and Moda Operandi New York.  Founded in London in 2014 with awards from Vogue Talents and The British Goldsmiths’ Craft and Design Council, Anabela Chan was awarded as Walpole's British Luxury Brand of Tomorrow in 2020.  

Born into 3 generations of film directors and cinematographers, Anabela grew up in London and Paris, and trained at the world-renowned Royal College of Art and Gemmological Association of Great Britain. She finds her inspirations from her extensive travels to the exotic and the orient; collecting gems and treasures along the way from local markets, nature and the intriguing people she meets. Through an alchemy of precious, natural and man-made materials Anabela combines elegant sculptural forms with dream-like romanticism and thought provoking narratives.   

Every story begins by hand-carving the designs in wax before casting in parts, then assembling, polishing and engraving in meticulous detail. Every stone is carefully selected for its brilliance and colour; then cut, faceted, polished and set painstakingly by hand.  Every jewel is hand-crafted individually by skilled artisanscombining her love affair with gemstones and an obsession to detail and perfection, to create magical treasures of infinite colours and sparkle that are loved, worn and collected alike.  

Originally trained as an architect and a specialist in print and embroidery design, Anabela worked with Architect Lord Richard Rogers and Fashion Designer Alexander McQueen in London for 7 years before returning to jewellery to launch her eponymous label in 2014.  She opened her first stand alone boutique in London Piccadilly’s Ham Yard Hotel in the same year, with a new Flagship at the iconic 35B Sloane Street in August 2020.  In 2021, Anabela became a Visiting Lecturer at the Royal College of Art.

'Jewellery is empowering, it brings joy, inspires emotions and elevates the spirit like no other. I also love its longevity to transcend generations - it is timeless, it does not decay or go away, it is a chance to hold onto the past and at the same time reach out to the future, and I find that endearingly romantic.  

My pieces combine the magic of high jewellery with a modern wearability and ethical sustainability; a joyful playfulness reminiscence of our childhood dreams.  It is about offering inspiring, beautifully-crafted jewels with longevity; works of art that are proudly worn, loved and treasured forever.’ ’
