About Elise, Jewellery Designer and Collections

Elise Compson. Jewellery Designer and Retailer Elise Compson launched her jewellery brand "By Elise" in 2002 followed by her online Showroom in 2008 and a wholesale arm in 2010. Her ever growing national and increasingly international reputation for fashion led designer jewellery incorporating style, glamour and originality has meant her work is now available throughout the UK and since 2011 in Paris, Vienna, Moscow and the United States of America.

Texture and shape is paramount to each design and at times she creates pieces that have a sense of drama making them truly eye catching. The media have described it as "Classic with a Twist".

Hand Crafted & Limited Editions

There are four core elements to her range
  1. Gold Vermeil Collection- 14 carat gold plate on 925 silver or brass and matched with gemstones and pearls. This range is selectively sourced by Elise
  2. Pearl Gallery Collection - Baroque Freshwater, Keshi’s, Coin, Tahitian, South Sea and in a variety of colours.
  3. Gemstone Collection- Using a variety of selected gemstones offset with pearls.
  4. Brilliance Collection – The use of cubic zirconia in a quality range of diamondesque style jewellery

With the majority of pieces the stones and pearls have been sourced, created and designed by Elise and hand strung here in the UK which makes them relatively unique in the luxury jewellery market. This integrity ensures each piece is crafted from the finest stones whilst designed to capture a woman's individuality. Her silver steering wheel clasp allows for infinite variety with or without detachable pendants so as to best suit the clients mood and preference

Silver and the Edinburgh Assay Office

United Kingdom legislation requires any item of silver above 7 grams in weight to be tested and certified as Sterling Silver which demonstrates a purity of 92.5%. The Edinburgh Assay Office who have been testing the purity of precious metals since 1457 undertakes this for By Elise by hallmarking each item and adding our unique makers mark of BE within an impressed heart. All our pieces are Sterling Silver.

Pearl Jewellery

Pearls are at the heart of the By Elise Collection, it is their beauty and versatility which have been central to Elise's collections and have resulted in such critical acclaim in recent years.

By Elise freshwater pearls are selected for their colour, luminosity and iridescence. The colours range through a wide spectrum of soft cream and champagne to the bronze and brown. The pearls are usually chosen for their baroque nature where the texture and shape provides for a developed sense of style, fashion, fun and above all enjoyment. Nature allows immense diversity in pearl production and By Elise replicates many of these styles in her creations.

Our Ethos

Our customers and their satisfaction are our primary objective. We recognise and respect that they are discerning, sophisticated and demand value for money.

Luxury is synonymous with value, integrity and quality. Luxury is not achieved by economising on quality, restricting access to the consumer or limiting production. Simply classifying an item as luxury or affordable luxury does not in itself define that item is luxury.

The source and methods by which our materials are extracted must, wherever possible, be capable of identification and every effort made to ensure that this has been done within an appropriate social and ecological framework.
