OUR STORY

  • Our simple mission was to create fashion and fine jewellery, working exclusively with the finest alternatives to mined gemstones.

    We started this journey almost 20 years ago and continue to focus on the finest non-mined gemstones today.

    Our vision is to a new era where jewels can have positive impact and a new generation of jewellery lovers.

  • CARAT* now sells from over 100 points of sale around the world, including leading department stores Lane Crawford and Selfridges & Co.

    We have a strong celebrity following, including Lady Gaga, Emma Willis, Courtney Love, Pixie Lott, Lily Allen, Ellie Goulding, Lucy Watson, and Alesha Dixon, to name a few.

    We are so old school our Jewellery was even seen in the season one of Gossip Girl!

    Since 2011, CARAT* has been a committed donor to the British Academy of Film and Television Arts, a nonprofit foundation that supports the growth of film and television arts.

  • Working together as a husband-and-wife team, Scott and Heidi Thompson continue on their original vision to democratise jewellery and to lead the market in more sustainable alternatives to mined gemstones.
