Our story

Discover inspiring, standout jewellery and accessories by a collective of British and international designers and makers.

Who is The Collective.

The Collective Boutique was launched online in August 2013 by fashion lover and mama of one, Hanna Nicholson. With experience in marketing, PR and jewellery retail, Hanna dreamed of setting up her own jewellery business. Growing up with her mother and grandmother’s love for antiques and the Art Deco era has without doubt influenced Hanna’s own style and product selection. Hanna runs The Collective Boutique from her seaside office in Brighton, East Sussex.

What We Do.

The Collective Boutique is an online destination for beautifully made, standout jewellery and accessories, designed to be worn, enjoyed and cherished. We meticulously source products from independent British and international designers, forming our very own must-have Collective . We handpick each item for its originality, quality and personality. We also like to turn our hand to co-designing exclusive pieces, only available from our online boutique.

What We Look For.

Character, detail and wearability are key criteria. Each piece has to complement the other – from a clutch bag and a watch, to temporary nail art and bracelets, we like to mix things up without going overboard. We look for like-minded makers who have a story to tell and a strong design ethic. These are not purchases which will disappear to the back of your wardrobe or the bottom of your jewellery box, they are made to be worn and enjoyed over and over again. Some might be more classic or more fashion-led than others but they will always have a durability about them. We encourage you to collect and invest in pieces that you will treasure, wear and love whether it’s Winter or Spring.


Who We Work With.

We work with emerging designers, makers and artisans across the UK and further afield. A mutual appreciation of style and individuality brings us together. The Collective supports small run, handmade collections – so much so that you may only find we have one or two in stock of any given piece and once they are sold, they are gone! We express our own spirit through our Exclusives range – collaborating with makers to co-design limited edition colourways or styles only available at The Collective Boutique. We are always on the lookout for fresh new talent so please get in touch if you’re interested in working with us.

Why Shop With Us.

From placing your order through to receiving your Collective Boutique parcel, we take pride in delivering the best service possible. Whether it’s the handwritten note with your order or the bespoke giftwrap, every attention to detail is made in the process. We appreciate that sometimes the virtual world can be a minefield of options, without the possibility to try those options on – so you can shop with us knowing that you have 14 days to return your purchase if it’s not quite right. You can also contact us before you take the plunge and we’re always happy to give advice.
