Our Story

Outrage Jewellers offers an exclusive collection of carefully selected precious and semi-precious gemstone jewellery. We pride ourselves on delivering the highest quality materials in unique handcrafted designs for your pleasure from our website as well as from our shop in Leeds.

 

Outrage Jewellers was established in Leeds in 1989 as a family run venture.  The business first grew as a result of our life overseas in Kenya, where we spent eight years. In 1989 we returned to the UK. Whilst in Kenya we had become involved with the Polio Clinic in Mombasa and subsequently the adult workshop for handicapped individuals, which produced jewellery.  We returned to the UK with some of this jewellery, which was fashioned in brass and copper in traditional Kenyan styles. The idea was to sell what we could as a sideline to our day jobs, however sales went so well Outrage Jewellers was born.

Whilst wholesaling the jewellery we were asked if it was available in silver and gold. It was not, so we purchased a plating machine and began to plate the copper and brass in silver and gold. The products continued to sell. 

Over time we developed our own jewellery designs to complement those from Kenya, mainly silver items, set with semi-precious stones. I have always been interested in geology, my children were used to me cracking open rocks to view the internal structures, whilst my late husband David, was an engineer and quickly mastered the art of making jewellery, engineering on a smaller scale!

So between the two of us, we had the skills and knowledge to start a business handcrafting jewellery. 

Each piece is completely unique, as every individual stone is one of a kind. The patterns and colours contribute to the value and personality of each piece. Each stone holds its own beauty, its own physical properties and its own spiritual characteristics (take a look at our Gemstone Guide section for information on each stone).

Outrage Jewellers stock a collection of natural stones set in handcrafted silver mounts. We now wish to share these pieces through our website to provide you with unique rings, bracelets, earrings and necklaces, or as gifts for loved ones.

An even wider range of items can be found in our independant shop in Leeds, West Yorkshire where we hold a strong following and have even been visited by celebrities! The shop has carried its individual style throughout different homes in Leeds and is now based in the historic Victorian Corn Exchange. We have a small but dedicated team running our website from inside the shop who are always happy to hear your thoughts and offer their help.

We hope you enjoy the pieces as much as we do.
