Salamander Gems is built around master gem-cutter Kenneth F. Harrington, who for over 40 years has been in demand throughout London’s West End and Hatton Garden for his unerring ability to bring out the best in every stone he cuts, whether from rough or when improving previously cut stones. He is known internationally for reviving the complex and beautiful “briolette” cut from the Victorian era, and also for developing a sophisticated fusing technique for minimising flaws in coloured stones.

Ken leads the accomplished Salamander Gems team, based at our shop and secure workrooms in Ipswich: Ken's colleague lapidaries Chris Chaplin, Louise Nash and Kevin Peck, assisted by certified gemmologists Letitia Chaplin and Louise Nash, and our expert sales, purchasing and support staff. Click "Media" to see reports of Ken's and Letitia's appearances for The Gemmological Association of Great Britain.
