About us

Pippa Small is an ethical jewellery brand, creating talismans for modern life. 

We approach jewellery design differently, working with Fairtrade, Fair Mined materials, generating secure livelihoods in areas of conflict around the world. From our core collection in India, our support of hand panning gold in Colombia, to community efforts with Turquoise Mountain in Afghanistan, Myanmar and The Levant, we work to encourage and sustain these communities. 

All our designs are handmade by highly skilled artisans. We believe it’s a privilege to own something made by hand; these pieces forge a bridge between one person and another, crossing language barriers and continents, bringing attention and awareness to what is happening elsewhere.

By wearing Pippa Small jewellery, you help us create sustainable jobs in areas impacted by conflict and climate change, support cleaner, fairer mining practises, and ensure the continuation of traditional craft techniques the world over.

Signature Collection: Jaipur

Pippa first travelled to Jaipur when she was a teenager and fell under the city’s spell, a region of India famed for its abundance of creativity and skilled artisans drawn from around the country. We work with master goldsmiths, gem cutters and setters, their work is exceptional and inspiring. We draw on the wonders of nature as the basis for our designs and work with stones that are traded in Jaipur and sourced from all over the world to create our classic collections of jewellery.

We have been working with Turquoise Mountain in Myanmar since 2015 in Yangon to help preserve traditional goldsmithing techniques and skills and train the next generation to provide jobs and a renewed sense of pride. Since the 2th century BC, there has been an exceptional skill in the region in gold work, with delicate filigree, granulation and gem cutting. We respectfully draw our design inspiration from the Pyu period and from the diverse traditions of the many ethnic communities within the country.
