Our story

Made to order jewellery purchased at the source

Blackacre creates unique pieces of jewellery specific to client needs. Based in our off the high-street workshop, we not only offer clients a chance to be a part of their creation journey, but also to experience it first-hand. From offering “blind tasting” viewings of our traceable gems to visiting our workshop, we want our clients to share in our passion with a unique behind the scenes experience.

With purchases being made at the source, we are able to offer true transparency, delivering luxury jewellery in a responsible way and at a fair price. Operating from the source, unlike many high street brands, we do not need to pass on to our clients the costs associated with premium retail spaces and brand names.

We are a young, progressive company that will continue to invest in the education of our brand following; the best young talents and non-wasteful best practices.

Our mission

"We create the highest quality jewellery imaginable in a non-wasteful way, promoting sustainability & transparency and allowing clients an experience at the source."
