“Jewellery represents such special moments in our lives – heart-warming stories of friendship, celebration and true love that can be passed down generations and treasured forever."
Moira Patience is an award winning fine jewellery designer based in the heart of Edinburgh who specialises in creating exquisite, one-off commissions using rare and ethically sourced gemstones.
Moira began her jewellery training at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art & Design, graduating in 2007 and winning a prestigious Craftsmanship and Design Award from the National Association of Jewellers in her final year. She then honed her skills with some of the world’s finest jewellery artisans, including working in London and Spain for Stephen Webster, and in Scotland for Hamilton & Inches.
In an age where anyone can buy anything - the same goods from the same brands all over the world, Moira is invested in creating truly exceptional, one-off pieces of jewellery, which are the very essence of luxury and elegance.

A self-confessed gemstone geek, Meg Studied Geology at
Edinburgh University and more recently passed her gemmology diploma - graduating at Goldsmiths Hall with distinction in 2013. After 7 years at Hamilton & Inches, Meg joined Moira Patience in 2019 bringing with her a wealth of experience and knowledge from a lifelong love affair with fossils, minerals and gemstones. She’s also a CAD wizard and builds 3D models of Moira’s bespoke designs before they’re sent to the workshop.
Innes' natural habitat is in the workshop making beautiful things and listening to music full blast. After making guitars for 15 years, he fell in love with stone setting at North Glasgow College where he learnt traditional bench skills before delving into cutting-edge jewellery techniques and achieving a First Class Honours degree in Jewellery and Technology from Dundee University. Over the past few years he has played a huge part in the realisation of Moira’s designs.
Each bespoke piece of Moira Patience jewellery is handmade by our master jeweller in our workshop in Scotland. Using modern techniques and traditional skills we create truly one-off pieces of jewellery that represent the very best in British craftsmanship.
