About Us

Sophie Breitmeyer specialises in creating jewellery that will be treasured for a lifetime, earning her a name as Notting Hill’s modern-day family jeweller. Blending antique silhouettes with contemporary wearability, Sophie’s designs are created with modern couples and empowered women in mind. Traditionally, families worked with one dedicated jeweller, where trust is valued, relationships are strong, knowledge is shared and the quality is impeccable. This is the Sophie Breitmeyer mantra.

Sophie Breitmeyer, Founder and Creative Director

Influenced by her upbringing and life lived as a creative, trust, discretion and an affinity for style make Sophie the word-of-mouth jeweller you’re delighted to discover. An avid reader who is continually inspired by the arts, history, fashion and architecture, Sophie has a strong interest in the Art Deco movement and draws from complimentary creative disciplines to design pieces that always tell a story. 

After studying Jewellery Design at Central Saint Martins, Sophie worked as a trainee mounter in the fine jewellery workshop, HA Jordan. She founded her eponymous brand with the ultimate jewellery wardrobe in mind, using her expertise to create wearable, British designed jewellery pieces that her clients need never take off. A supporter of traditional hand craftsmanship, Sophie works closely with responsible Master Goldsmiths and trusted dealers to produce jewellery imbued with meaning and value.

“Architecture is probably the more prominent inspiration of the four. The details and moments you come
across when exploring buildings really stick with me. Patterns always catch my eye,
along with bold shapes and intricate details which all set the tone for my jewellery.”

Hackle

Customer Greeting Officier

Allow us to introduce you to Hackle, the best model we could wish for and a constant presence in our studio. At 10 years old, he has a little less energy these days. However, on a good day he is always there to greet dog-loving visitors and play games around the shop, if you feel like it, and has the power to charm you instantly.

The Studio

Situated in the heart of Notting Hill, West London, the Sophie Breitmeyer studio is an eclectic home-from-home filled with items that Sophie has collected on her travels. Kept company by her dog, Hackle, this is where Sophie designs, creates and welcomes clients.

With comfy chairs, a relaxed atmosphere and a rotating display of contemporary art adorning the walls, Sophie’s jewellery can be discovered dotted among the art books and oil paintings. Shielded from the eyes of passers-by, the space is designed to help you feel inspired, relaxed and open to learning so that you will feel confident making the important decisions that accompany investing in fine and bespoke jewellery. 

“From the soft, warm and plentiful colours to our wall of curiosities, curated with archival magazines, ornaments and jewellery, the studio is eclectic and welcoming,” says Sophie. “ One of my favourite areas is the wall of photographs that have been sent in by clients over the years. Even though I wasn’t present on the day, it was such an honour to be involved in so many of these life-changing moments. These thoughtful memories make everything I do worthwhile.” 

The Sophie Breitmeyer studio is open by appointment only from Monday to Friday, with evening appointments available on Mondays and Tuesdays. Whether you would like to discuss a bespoke commission, are looking for a unique engagement ring or are simply in need of some friendly advice, all are welcome for a cup of tea - or a glass of something a little stronger.
