LHN Jewelry is dedicated to the craftsmanship of making handmade pieces of Jewelry and Accessories. Made to last as future heirlooms, all items are proudly crafted in Brooklyn, New York.

The designer of LHN Jewelry is British-born Lewis Williams, who studied Jewelry at Central Saint Martins and The Guildhall in London, he moved to New York City in 2006.
Lewis's grandfathers were interesting gentlemen - Henry was a boxer and Captain in the British Army and Nicholas was a cobbler and as a nod to these two men, the names of his grandfathers accompany his, in the brand name: LHN stands for Lewis Henry Nicholas.

This is coupled with fabricating the jewelry by hand- sawing, engraving, hammering, and soldering the metals. This results in hand made eclectic jewelry, which is aesthetically beautiful and feels like old treasur.
