But designers and celebrities have heard of it and the amazing jewelry designer that runs it. Sweet Pea boutique is owned by Siobhan O’ Neill who has been making jewelry, accessories and couture pieces since 1991. Designing in a vintage aesthetic, she’s produced creations for department stores Harvey Nichols and Bergdorf Goodman as well as designers John Galliano and Alexander McQueen before opening up her own corner shop.
Dainty thin gold hoops and chains dangle with pale gems and pearls giving an heirloom beauty to her pieces. Her rose cut sapphire ring in particular is exquisite in its simplicity. 18kt gold thinly frames a 1.28ct blue, pear-shaped sapphire in a design that is easily an everyday accessory. The ring stays both timeless and modern in its uncomplicated structure. All of her pieces including this one are designed by O’ Neill and handmade in London.
