'When I give a gift, I want to give something different, something exciting. I'd like to think that everything in our collection is something people will hang on to. We're not going for mass-produced stuff, we're particularly passionate about working with British owner/makers. The only trouble we've had when selecting products is when we get samples, we both want to keep them!' Emily
‘We want to create memorable gifts. I have an appreciation for great quality and the finishing touches of packaging, which can make a real difference when you're receiving a gift. I believe taking care with the finer details is what elevates a lovely gift to make it something really special, and I'd never be happy to put my name to something that isn't presented beautifully.' Vicky
Vicky spent 15 years in a retail career that started in the prestigious Asprey store in New York. This gave a grounding and appreciation for the level of skill and craftsmanship required to create and present pieces for a luxury market. An ethos that continued with 10 years in a British department store buying office.
Vicky managed and built ranges from international premium & luxury brands across a number of categories including beauty and accessories. This passion and understanding starts with the product but ultimately is extented to every part of a piece’s presentation and the service Gilded Bee provides.
