the restoration of a much loved heirloom we are here to help.
Having dedicated his life to making wonderfully fine jewellery Stephen joined the Kaanaanmaa team in 1990, at the tender age of 16, and bought the company with his friend and business partner, Gary in 2001. Stephen loves nothing more than creating in Kaanaanmaa’s onsite workshop. One of the most enjoyable aspects of Stephen’s work is that each day brings a new challenge. Stephen explains “I am very lucky that I have been able to make my passion my life’s work. To be able to create unique and beautiful jewellery for our customers is a real privilege. I want to give Kaanaanmaa customers a personal and dedicated service. When a customer comes to us and asks us to make an unusual engagement ring or wedding ring or other special piece of bespoke jewellery for someone they love, it is exciting because every item is unique and individually made for them. Each day I get to create something truly precious that is symbolic of a moment of joy and happiness, and their jewellery will last a lifetime or longer.” Having studied at the Sir John Cass Faculty of Arts in London together with 25 years specialist experience of crafting fine gold, silver and platinum jewellery, Stephen is an expert goldsmith. His passion for his craft extends beyond his creative workshop to ensuring that everyone who is part of that piece of jewellery’s history is fairly rewarded for their work. To that end he ensured that Kaanaanmaa was one of the first jewellers to acquire a Fairtrade gold license and Kaanaanmaa’s Diamonds are all conflict free.
