SOLD OUT. We are extremely delighted that Shaun Leane will be our first INSPIRE In-Conversation of 2024!

For over twenty years, Shaun Leane has redefined British jewellery design, fusing innovation with exquisite craftsmanship, producing timeless elegance that epitomises modern romance. He has created some of the most admired jewellery masterpieces of the 21st century.

The Shaun Leane jewellery house was born at the bench in London's jewellery quarter, Hatton Garden, it is where his heart lies, and we are thrilled that he will be returning for this special evening.

His journey began at 15 with a traditional apprenticeship, learning diamond mounting and antique restoration where high skills and perfection was paramount. This classical, technical education underpins Shaun's jewellery with a workshop of highly-skilled artisans, all trained to a high standard in the art of goldsmithing.

Shaun's unwavering commitment to break with traditions and play with conventions has led to esteemed collaborations including his longstanding partnership with Lee Alexander McQueen. United by a shared passion for craftsmanship the fashion duo created a series of iconic provocative catwalk jewels in both couture jewellery and the history of runway fashion.

Further collaborations include Daphne Guinness, Nick Knight, Boucheron, Damien Hirst and many more, propelling Shaun to global recognition.

He has a number of masterpieces exhibited in various museums including the V&A and The Metropolitan Museum, with Sotheby's auctioneers referring to them as 'collectible heirlooms of the future.

This will truly be a very insightful evening!
