CORINNE HAMAK JEWELLERY 

Reworking Heirlooms and Customisation

Launched in London in 2004, CH Jewellery has organically evolved 9 signature collections, a line of Wedding and Engagement rings and a Bespoke business. Corinne’s passion for the power of nature, and the transformative memory of travel inspired collections such as the “Celebration Rings” and “Xilitla”, signature shapes like Water and Mountain.

Born often from experiments, certainly inspired by classic design and the concept of family heirloom, creations are sculpt in clay or hand carved in wax at first, then crafted through the traditional lost wax technique. Design, quality and authenticity lay at the core of the Brand Philosophy and Ethos.

Organic shapes of a warm, earthy quality, classic designs renewed through unexpected, personal twists. Timeless and a-seasonal. Corinne solely produces in small batches, made to measure, or for Bespoke commissions. She prefers to work with recycled gold and silver, Fair Trade metal and stones from best in class suppliers. Still deeply involved in the making process behind her pieces she also partners with customers and creates new items out of their old Jewellery. Rings hold a very special place in Corinne’s aesthetic vision, and collections are often created from their design. Artistic shapes, yet conceived with comfort and functionality in mind. During the last 15 years, Corinne has developed a cult following in Japan, and a loyal private clientele in the UK. She works out of her studio in Clerkenwell.
