Our Story

Our Story


Gemz by Emz are the original engravers of photo, handwriting and baby ultrasound jewellery, gifts, cushions and products. Our brand has since expanded into  engraving paw prints, drawings, fingerprints, handprints and more. Alongside our specialist engraving service we also create beautiful personalised glitter canvases and unique personalised cushions. We are your one stop shop for personalised gifts  like memorial jewellery that cannot be found on the high street. 


Emma has a background in professional photography and photo editing and a huge passion for photos and the memories they provide us with. This was how the idea of combining her love for jewellery, photos and keeping memories alive came about and where the creation of photo jewellery, handwriting jewellery, canvasses and cushions started. From there Gemz by Emz has continued to grow bigger and bigger into the brand you see today.

We feel so lucky to have had so many Celebrity customers including Eamonn Holmes, Stacey Solomon, Jacqueline Jossa, Lisa Riley, Charlie Hedges, Calum Best and Crystal Hefner (to name a few!) Our items have been seen on 'Coronation Street' 'X Factor' and 'ITV Weather' and we have been featured in 'Make and Sell Jewellery Magazine,' 'The Daily Mail,' 'The Sun,' 'Havering Living Magazine,' and 'Prima Magazine' 

In 2017 Gemz by Emz were hand picked by Dragons Den's Theo Paphitis to win his 'Small Business Sunday' award and in 2019 we were commended as one of the 'Indie Retail's' top 25 small shops in the UK!! Both have been huge achievements for us and are a reflection of our hard work and dedication to provide exceptional customer service.


We strive to provide the best customer service, to be the brand that you can trust and to put our customers first in everything that we do when you need handwriting necklaces, photo cushions and personalised memorial jewellery. Emma is an advocate for raising awareness of mental health and supporting those who are struggling with their mental health. Almost all of our customers are purchasing for remembrance reasons and we understand that grief and loss are one of the hardest experiences we go through. For this reason we like to keep our website blog as a place to share experiences alongside support to help you through your grief and loss, alongside managing your mental health and wellbeing.
