Our Story

Our Story


Gemz by Emz began back in 2011 when Emma started making jewellery as a hobby. Emma decided to share her designs on her Twitter social media account to see what others thought and this led to lots of interest and sales from both the general public and Celebrities.

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 now engrave jewellery and gifts with your choice of photo, handwriting, text, pregnancy scan or hand/foot/paw/finger print. 

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 believe in putting our customers first, providing support, comfort and happiness in all that we do and rewarding our customers whilst creating an efficient and simple experience that you can trust.
