Cellini is an independent company of designers and makers of fine jewellery, self contained and complete with its own workshops. The company, founded in 1981 has successfully grown under the direction of the working directors, with an in-house team of designers, gemologists, watchmaker, diamond graders, goldsmiths, silversmiths, pearl stringers, specialist jewellery repairers, mounters, and diamond setters.
As a pearl specialist, the company still holds one of the largest selection of pearls in the UK, shipping pearls from fisheries around the world directly into its workshops, which are quickly strung on silk to individual designs and lengths.
Similarly, there are large stocks of exceptionally fine coloured stones and high quality loose diamonds selected by the company's gemstone buyers from sources around the world. Cellini has its own professional Diamond Graders, and specializes in sorting and selecting high grade diamonds, only using the finest in the D-G colours, and IF-Vs clarities for its designs.
