Rarely are the words ‘modern’ and ‘traditional’ used together to define a designers style, but Christopher Wharton has succeeded to combine both these elements in his collection of fine jewellery.
Born into a large traditional English family his artistic and creative abilities were recognised and encouraged especially by his father, a well-known watchmaker in St. Albans.
A five-year apprenticeship with a renowned London designer gave him the knowledge and quality standard that were to form the very foundations of his business, however the vision for jewellery design came from Christopher himself.
Recognised and awarded by De Beers (now the Diamond Trading Company) over a number of years his reputation quickly grew as a designer of high quality modern jewellery, but with the longevity of the tradition never completely forgotten.
Today, Christopher Wharton with his son Sam lead a highly skilled team of goldsmiths to continually present new and exciting collections that never fail to surprise and delight those looking for modern jewellery without compromise to the traditional standards.
