The Jewel House Rocks Story

Hi, I'm Karen. I live in North London with my husband Noel, teenage son Billy and a very naughty puppy called Toffee who arrived last Christmas and kept us well entertained through the lockdowns of the last two years. 
A born and bred Londoner my previous career in travel photography gave me a keen eye for detail and interest in jewellery from all over the world. 

Over the last 10 years, I have focused on sourcing beautifully made unique pieces and accessories by designers and artisans from around the world.

Whether it's to add colour to your outfit with a striking accessory, or change the look to elegant and effortless, Jewel House Rocks has it covered. 
Whilst the events of the last couple of years have made it a little harder to source unique pieces I'm grateful and fortunate to have relationships with designers all over the world that have endured.

You can normally find me at Vinegar Yard and various markets around London. 

My website doesn't have all of the pieces I have on offer, as the pieces change so frequently. If there is something specific you're looking for, please email or reach out, I'd love to talk.  

Karen Briggs is the creator and founder of Jewel House Rocks. She began her career in the dynamic and exciting world of advertising and art direction of global photo shoots. Karen then became a professional travel photographer and through her travels, she discovered exotic and remote places around the world.

Karen’s travel photography also gave her the opportunity to explore and collect unusual and bespoke jewellery pieces made by local artisans from different countries and cultures. She is particularly interested in gemstones. This natural curiosity, along with her love of fashion, inspired Karen to create her own unique jewellery pieces. As her passion developed and grew, Karen started designing and creating her own collections. This led the birth of Jewel House Rocks in 2012.

Karen has a strong sense of identity and confidence in fashion, and she helps her customers develop their individual style. Jewel House Rocks offers the personal touch and is happy to collaborate with their customers. Karen loves working with Sterling silver, 18ct gold & rose gold vermeil and leather. Her collections include leather chokers, statement and delicate necklaces, bracelets, rings and earrings. Edgy, boho and classic, Karen’s jewellery is ideal to dress up or dress down.
