For over twenty years, Shaun Leane has redefined the standard of British jewellery design. Fusing innovation with exquisite craftsmanship, the House is known for a timeless elegance that epitomises modern romance. Creator of some of the most admired jewellery masterpieces of the twenty-first century, Shaun Leane is fast becoming one of the world’s pre-eminent jewellery houses.
The Shaun Leane jewellery house was born at the bench in London’s jewellery quarter, Hatton Garden. Our founder, Shaun Leane, trained in a traditional apprenticeship from the age of fifteen, learning diamond mounting and antique restoration in an environment where skill was paramount and perfection the standard.
This classical, technical education is the foundation for Shaun Leane jewellery and the prerequisite for all our design and craft. Our atelier is made up of a team of highly-skilled artisans, all trained in the delicate art of goldsmithing.
Leane’s unwavering commitment to break with entrenched traditions, play with conventions and bring a fresh dynamic to exquisitely crafted fine jewellery has led to esteemed collaborations including his longstanding partnership with Lee Alexander McQueen.
United by a shared passion for craftsmanship the fashion duo created a series of provocative catwalk jewels that have become iconic milestones in both the art of couture jewellery and the history of runway fashion. Explore the journey of those creations here.
Leane’s significant design legacy has led to further collaborations with Daphne Guinness, Nick Knight, Boucheron, Damien Hirst and more, propelling Leane to global recognition.
With a number of his masterpieces exhibited at foremost museums including the V&A and The Metropolitan Museum, these breathtaking creations are acknowledged as contemporary works of art in their own right.
Described by Sotheby’s as ‘desired antiques of the future’, uncover some of the breathtaking pieces exhibited at the Auction House’s sale of Leane’s personal couture archive here.
This beautiful story of art, fashion and craftsmanship continue to this day through our Collections and bespoke creations that bind together Leane’s distinctive style of slick, elegant lines with a sense of eternity and sophisticated edge.
