WHY F&L LOVE
Amanda Li Hope

After meeting Amanda Li Hope, L and I agreed that we had found a designer who had succeeded in creating work with a strong contemporary flavour that is still instantly recognisable as an engagement ring. Amanda loves to wrestle with the rules of geometry to create designs that develop the inner beauty that comes from fundamental shapes. She has married this preoccupation with form with her interest in the mysticism of certain gems like a cognac diamond whose subtle and nuanced glow speaks loudly to Amanda’s creative spirit.

Amanda Li Hope on Fair Trade

Amanda Li Hope has a special claim to fame. She was one of the world’s first jewellers to be certified to work with Fairtrade/Fairmined gold. As a designer she has always been committed to ethical jewellery so the launch of this scheme is something dear to her heart. Her clients can commission engagement rings from her studio that are guaranteed to consist of material that was produced under safe conditions with environmentally friendly mining techniques and traded according to global standards of fair-trade.

Amanda Li Hope on Settings

L is fascinated by the potential of precious metal as decoration in its own right and in Amanda Li Hope she found a kindred spirit. Amanda gives equal weight to the potential of the metal as to the importance of the stone in the engagement rings that she designs. She describes her preoccupation with setting manipulation and her experimentation with what she calls ‘the hybrid’. You’d be hard pushed to pigeon hole her ring settings: she is a master of innovating and creating her own versions of the traditional prong, gypsy and other setting styles.
