John Elliot Master Jeweller

John Elliot first started in the jewellery trade at Eton Jewellery in Hatton Garden, London where he served his apprenticeship.
While he was there he got to work on wide variety of jewellery from simple diamond egagement rings & diamond earrings to very important pieces like a sapphire and diamond necklace for 

Princess Diana which was commissioned on behalf of Garrard of London the Queens jewellers,

  
Below are a few photos of the work that he did at Eton Jewellery.

Shortly after John finished his apprenticeship he went self employed and started working at Bellingham & Epstein a company that was making very fine jewellery and objet d'art.
They specialized in doing reproductions of Faberge' and luxury items like diamond encrusted rock crystal caviar bowls. 
It was here that John was to meet a couple of kiwis who would later lure him away to New Zealand where he lives and works today.

After a few years John then moved on and worked with a group of talented jewellers in there own workshop just off Hatton Garden in Greville Street making very fine antique reproduction jewellery some of which was commissioned for the Sultan of Brunei.

After making antique reproduction for a few years and getting a good reputation for producing top class jewellery they were given the opportunity to work at the famous Graff Diamonds.
Which they jumped at, as this was the pinnacle of jewellery manufacturing in Hatton Garden at the time, they got to work with some amazing gems.

Soon word got out that there was a talented jeweller at Graffs and the offers of employment from the West End were starting to come in. 
John finally decided that David Morris International was the company that inspired him the most with bold designs and large beautiful gems, so it was off to the West End.
