About UsOur History. Your story.
have the confidence to be you
Why shout when you can draw someone in with a whisper?
Being understated can be the best way to be noticed. Jewellery doesn’t have to be large and loud, it can be subtle and tasteful. It can accentuate, rather than hide, your natural beauty. We make jewellery for women who know who they
find your story
We believe that every person is a collection of stories they tell themselves.
Who and what you are is entirely encompassed within those stories. We design our stories into our jewellery, but really, your story is the one that matters. Do you have a favourite piece of jewellery? Do you wear it every day, or do you keep it for special occasions? When you find a quiet moment and play with the way it catches the light, what story does it tell you? Is it about the time you bought
it’s all about where you are
We Draw Our Inspiration From Our Surroundings
The name Circinn is actually the old Pictish name for the area of Scotland where we live and work. The Plain of Circinn was gifted to one of the sons of Cruithne, the first King of Scotland. It’s no mistake we picked a name with a rich history behind it. Everything we design is inspired by where we live – by
“What’s For You’ll No Go By You”
This is what happens when an Artist marries an Engineer and they decide to open a Jewellery Workshop. Stories and Art mix with skilful benchwork and technical precision. Ancient crafts mix with bleeding-edge technologies to create something beautiful.
When we look back on the work we’ve done, the places we’ve been, the stories we were raised on and the culture that has surrounded us, it’s like every major event in our shared experience has been a signpost on the road that’s led us here. As if this was where we were always aiming, without even knowing it.
“What’s for you’ll no go by you” is an old saying here that means if it’s meant to be, it will be. Just like you’re here right now, reading our story, looking at our work and wondering if it’s for you. Do you like beautiful things? Do you love items with a story and history? Do you treasure jewellery that can act as a lifelong touchstone? If the answer is yes, yes and yes, then maybe this is for you, and won’t go by you.
Artist & Designer
Every single item available on this website started off as a pencil sketch by Becky. Taking her inspiration from the world around us, she mixes a very distinctive style into her lifelong passion for designing and making beautiful jewellery, as well as all the photography you see on all of our pages. She’s most at home exploring the natural world she reflects in her designs.
Engineer & Storyteller
The technical arm of the operation, Charlie brings with him over 20 years Engineering experience in Europe, the US and Asia. His skills in 3D design and manufacture, coupled with the older technologies of lost wax casting and metalsmithing, are what gives our jewellery a precision and perfect symmetry that can only be reached with meticulous attention to detail.

Hallmarked at Edinburgh Assay Office
When it comes to manufacturing jewellery and silverware, precious metals (silver, palladium, gold and platinum) are rarely used in their purest form. Instead, they are usually alloyed with lesser metals in order to achieve a desired strength, durability, and colour.
It is not possible to detect the precious metal content of an item by sight or by touch. It is, therefore, a legal requirement to hallmark all items consisting of silver, palladium, gold or platinum (subject to certain exemptions) if they are to be described as such.
All of our items are assayed (tested) and hallmarked at the Edinburgh Assay Office and we are an Assay Assured Jewellery Retailer. Assay Assured status is only given to retailers who have been independently audited and verified by the Edinburgh Assay Office and ensures that all precious metal jewellery (including items exempt by weight) is of the claimed standard –
