Elizabeth Gage MBE is an award-winning British jewellery designer and trained master goldsmith who has been creating collectable jewellery for over 50 years. She has been described by the trade as someone “whose large rings, historical references, gorgeous stones and elaborate craftsmanship set the tone for a whole generation”.
After studying design at the Chelsea School of Art and at the Sir John Cass College, in 1968 Elizabeth received a commission from Cartier in New York City to create a special collection for their new catalogue. Four years later, she was presented with the coveted De Beers International Diamond Award. In 1989, she was awarded the Queen’s Award for Export Achievement.
A major US retrospective of Elizabeth Gage’s work entitled ‘The Enchanting Jewels of Elizabeth Gage’ was held at the New Britain Museum of American Art. The critically acclaimed show ran from 25 April to 26 July 2015.
Elizabeth’s pieces constantly attract the attention of top fashion magazines and celebrities due to their unique quality. Some of her designs are included in the permanent jewellery collection of the Victoria and Albert Museum, London. She has recently published a book about her jewellery and her inspirations called The Unconventional Gage.
Her pieces are beautiful and will stand the test of time.
