Jewellery Designers Abroad
Meet Some of Our Friends Abroad
We are wrapping up the final blog to our holiday series with a few more incredible jewellery designers, this time abroad in London, Dublin and all the way in Melbourne. Explore the three jewellery brands below, all encompassing original aesthetics that are uniquely their very own.
Brothers David and Barry McCaul aim to create jewellery that “accentuated the curves and contours of the body.” The carefully crafted pieces of adornments are made from start to finish in their own workshops, where traditional jewellery equipment sits alongside cutting edge pieces of technology. Some pieces are designed while hand carving wax on the fly, while others are designed digitally via CAD. Customers can see the goldsmiths at work while browsing the finished pieces in the showrooms.
While The McCaul brothers often work directly with clients for custom bespoke jewellery, their ready-to-wear collections should certainly get some acknowledgement. For instance, new to the McCaul Goldsmith’s family is the kite shaped diamond ring in their recently launched Aegis collection. The 1.04ct diamond is bezel set in 18k rose gold, the angels of the stone contrast with the angels of the metal, working cohesively for a geometric and contemporary look. The greater collection is a series of hand carved engagement rings, sharing the bezel settings that mimic the facets of the diamonds they hold.
View the jewellery in person by visiting McCaul goldsmiths at either of their two locations, in Dublin’s heart of the design district of Balbriggan’s Ardgillan Castle, or in London’s Semi-Pedestrian Exmouth Market.
Rachel Boston has evolved into one of London’s most sought after brands for independently designed engagement rings since her launch in 2012.
The line of ceremonial rings varies from traditional to out of the ordinary, using uniquely imperfect diamonds and sapphires as well as those that are refined and classic. Rachel’s art-deco inspired forms and contemporary silhouettes are her signature, catering to alternative brides looking for bespoke jewels. Find a modern edge to a split shank, and contemporary settings for the focal stones.
Rachel’s assortment of earrings, necklaces and bracelets offer bold statements with hefty metal and bezel set stones. Large links and hoops of substantial widths and sprinkled through the collection along with other statement pieces like ear cuffs and wrist cuffs.
Rachels commitment to sustainable and conscientious craftsmanship means that she will only use recycled gold and platinum as well as sourcing stones as ethically as possible. Every jewellery piece is hand fabricated in Rachel’s London workshops.

The Windfall team of all women are based in Melbourne, Australia. The company was founded by Lani Williams in 2011 with a commitment to offer a line of jewellery with sustainably sourced materials and stones.
The line of engagement rings puts no limits on stones, ranging from diamonds and sapphires to an assortment of other coloured stones.
The focal stones are accented with diamonds, sometimes giving a snowflake appearance, or half halo setting off the symmetry.
Windfall Jewellery is well prepared for the holidays with offerings of ready-to-wear signet rings, pendant necklaces, skull studs and statement hoop earrings. They certainly do have fans of their brand, considering the swag - represent Windfall with a bucket hat, t-shirt, or even a croc charm!
