About Dominic Jones (courtesy of London Fashion Week):
Dominic Jones was born in Buckinghamshire, England. In 2003 Dominic moved to London to study BA Contemporary Jewellery Design at The Sir John Cass School of Art and Design. Alongside his studies, he collaborated on several projects with the hugely influential London art collective !WOWOW! In 2008, with the help and funding of good friend and now business partner Alice Dellal, Dominic set up his company Dominic Jones Jewellery.
Trained as a fine jeweler, Dominic applies traditional techniques to current design principles. Specialising in gold and precious stones he uses five times the average amount of gold than conventional hard gold plating, creating a higher quality finish to this process.

His debut collection ‘Tooth & Nail” launched in March 2009, receiving fantastic critical acclaim and support from fashion insiders throughout London. Almost immediately Dominic could count Kristen Stewart, Devon Aoki, Alexa Chung and Sienna Miller as his ambassadors.
The British Fashion Council awarded Dominic with BFC New Generation sponsorship for Spring Summer 2010, making him one of the only fine jewelers to ever receive this. Dominic Jones is now stocked globally and ambassadors extend to Beyonce, Vivienne Westwood and Rihanna.
