The Story

British born, Dominique Lucas’ interest in jewelry began in Mexico where she worked alongside local jewelry artisan specialists that she met whilst undertaking her degree in Medicine. Shortly after this, Dominique relocated to Florence, known for its legacy and long tradition of goldsmiths.Dominique began working with the local Italian jewelry designers to hone her skills.

During this time, she began creating her own pieces incorporating historical and cultural influences in Victorian symbolism, Italian heritage and Mexico’s reference to mythical creatures.Dominique’s AW11 collection features gold plated lion rings set with black diamond eyes, delicately molded tiger cuff arm bands, owl finger cuffs and necklaces in rose gold, silver, oxidized silver and gold, as well as a life sized hand crafted gold lily. All pieces are produced using the finest pure gold, rose gold, oxidized silver and silver.All pieces in the collection celebrate the myths and legends of native tribes.The collection is handmade by the designer herself adapting clay sculpting techniques learnt in Florence to traditional wax carving in jewelry and are hallmarked sterling silver. The surface is then oxidized or hard plated with 18ct yellow or rose gold.Dominique brings a distinctive quality to each and every piece that is loaded with historical significance that tells it’s own inimitable story.
