Gemma Redmond is the owner and director of Gemma Redmond Vintage. She is based in North West England and was born in the early eighties. As someone with an avid interest in learning about the past, a love of the fashion industry and a keen eye for art and design; it was only natural for Gemma to develop a penchant for collecting vintage costume jewellery. Over time, she has developed an extensive knowledge in this field. In 2011, she decided to leave her post as a primary school teacher, turning her hobby into a business. With a degree in History from the University of Manchester under her belt and having completed fashion business courses at Central St Martins and London College of Fashion, Gemma has some great credentials to her name.
Gemma Redmond Vintage aims to illustrate that vintage costume jewellery pieces can be worn by anyone, everyday. Within this online store, there are not only items for brides and pieces that can be paired with eveningwear, there are items to add colour, detail and, most importantly, originality to casual looks too. Encouraging others to celebrate the uniqueness of vintage costume jewellery by wearing it anytime and anywhere, is something that Gemma is passionate about. She writes and edits a blog which aims to extoll the virtues of wearing vintage fashions in contemporary ways.
Each piece of jewellery sold here at Gemma Redmond Vintage has been hand selected by Gemma herself from locations accross the UK and, in fact, the globe. Items are selected for their wearabilty, craftsmanship, special design, eyecatching colour, prestige and back-stories. Indeed, Gemma is very particular about selecting items for the way in which they evoke the time periods in which they were made; for the way in which they reflect the skill and characteristics of their designers; and for the way in which they can compliment one's personal style.
