Our Story

Renowned for beautifully designed, distinctive Sterling Silver jewellery, Kit Heath celebrates 40 years as an award-winning Great British jewellery brand.

In 1984, hailing from North Devon, an area best known for its beautiful coastline, sibling duo Kit Heath and Katie Nickell launched a brand bringing their trademark of classic, contemporary British style to life.

Standing out for its quality silver, originality, and craftsmanship, the brand’s ethos has grown into its confident roots.

“With every piece you wear, you become part of our story, celebrating the beauty of connection through timeless pieces that symbolise life’s special moments.”

Our trademark is creating original collection stories with eternal themes of life, friendship, and nature. You will find enticing curves and unexpected twists of silver, all mindfully chosen to evoke delight and admiration.

Love Silver…Love Kit Heath

With our company about to mark its 40th year and guided by an unwavering commitment to core values like trust, opportunity, consideration, and connection, Kit Heath continues to flourish as a brand that stands for classic appeal and uncompromising quality. 

Our journey has come a long way since those early days when Kit sold his creations from his trusted VW campervan, but our passion for creating designs that capture the spirit of North Devon and evoke emotion remains as strong as ever.
