The Diamond Setter is a contemporary jewellery label offering luxury, stand-out pieces that are designed for your everyday wear. An independent family owned business, located in the beautiful Royal Tunbridge Wells, Kent, this hidden gem specialises in diamond and gemstone settings.

Founded in the middle of the Covid pandemic, when Gavin and Lorraine returned to England in February 2020 to reunite family roots, The Diamond Setter is a brand anchored in honesty and positivity.

The inspiration behind The Diamond Setter is to create an unintimidating jewellery shopping experience accessible to everyone. Promoting unique handmade jewellery, designed and made in England, focusing on skills, craftsmanship and dedication to each and every jewellery piece. At The Diamond Setter, you are speaking directly with the maker – no middle man.


Gavin is a highly experienced craftsman as well as a diamond and gemstone setter with nearly 20 years bench experience. From years spent in Hatton Garden creating jewellery for renowned brick and mortar high street brands, working for Rolex repairing watches for high net worth individuals, discovering origins and story of gemstones in South East Asia and all the way down to New Zealand as a master jeweller and diamond setter.

Lorraine believes that everyone should have access to fine jewellery and that shopping should not be daunting and instead, an experience allowing you to be yourself. With years in customer service, her eyes are focused on creating a wonderful customer’s experience.


The pair draws inspiration from their travels across three continents where their ethos are shaped by both beauty and challenges of everyday living. Gavin’sattachment to the ocean is a driving force in his creativity whilst Lorraine dwells on the feminine touch and comfortable luxury.


Quite simply, each piece is unique. Although the pattern, the size, and other components look the same, there will always be something different. It’s like a thumbprint, it only belongs to you. The Diamond Setter’s special customisation feature on the website reinforces this concept. For the first time ever, you can choose the placement of your gemstones with a touch of your finger, and without an extra fee.

The Diamond Setter’s humble workshop is located in the beautiful Salomon’s Estate in Tunbridge Wells, a borough not far from London where modern life blends in with the town’s natural beauty. With minimal jewellery display, you will find the studio is inviting you to look behind the scenes and inspect life on the bench.
