THE director of an independently-run jewellery label is designing a new collection for release in the coming months.

Bethany Williams, of Constellations London, which was founded in August 2020, is currently working on a new, fine jewellery collection.

Constellations London is an affordable, luxury market offering in gold jewellery - with a focus on sustainability and giving back to charity.

“I work in fashion buying in London and decided to use the skills I learnt here and turn my hand to jewellery design after noticing a gap in the market between high street, fast fashion jewellery and break-the-bank expensive fine jewellery”, said Bethany, who is originally from the North-East.

“I’ve always had a love of fine jewellery, which was made even greater when I was handed down my Granny’s solid gold jewellery as an heirloom.

"I wear her pieces absolutely everywhere! I wanted to bring an essence of this to my brand but with pieces that people could easily afford and would still last them years.”

All of the brand’s collections are made from materials such as 925 sterling silver and real 18ct gold vermeil or plating - which create beautiful pieces with the appearance of solid gold but last longer than their gold-coloured counterparts and can be worn everyday.

Bethany added: “I aspire to reimagine timeless styles you’ll still want to wear in a decades time.

“It was also always really important to me to build a brand that would do things sustainably.

"Not only exclusively using conscious packaging and no single-use plastic in any process carried out by the business, but being able to give back to charity with every purchase is integral to what we do - this is why we give over 5 per cent of profits to When You Wish Upon A Star - who help children living with a life-threatening illness to experience their dream.”

The business is full e-commerce. More information at
