From vibrant enamel and shimmering metals to precious stones and diamonds, the gorgeous collections from Sheila Fleet Jewellery based in Kirkwall, are all inspired by Orkney, the famous jewellery designer’s island home, and Scotland’s rich heritage.

Order these majestic stag cufflinks in silver and moss enamel (pictured: £129) directly from the workshop or choose a beautiful piece of jewellery from the gorgeous Daisies for Emily range, which was designed by Sheila to support former employee Emily in her fight against a rare form of cancer.

Visit one of the Sheila Fleet Jewellery shops in Orkney, Edinburgh, Glasgow or Loch Lomond and browse the beautiful selection of jewellery and gifts for ladies and men.

The beautifully designed statement pieces from Shetland Jewellery, Weisdale, are all inspired by Scandinavian mythology, local wildlife, and traditional Celtic designs. Each piece is made from start to finish by the same crafts person, so you can be sure your gift has been lovingly produced and given the highest attention to detail.

Why not choose a piece from the delightful Peerie Smoorikins range, designed by Sophie Whitehead?

The term ‘Peerie Smoorikins’ is Shetland dialect for ‘little kisses’ and we think that this beautiful Peerie Smoorikins Heart Pendant with Amethyst (pictured: £59.95) would be the perfect way to remind your loved one how special they are.

With their vibrant colours and glossy finish, Heathergems’ beautiful products will bring a smile to anyone’s face. Made from real Scottish heather, Heathergems are crafted by cutting, dying and compressing raw heather before it is sliced and shaped into gems, creating a completely unique finished product. No two gems are ever the same.

Pop into the Heathergems visitor centre in Pitlochry, or a Heathergems stockist, to find a unique piece for men and women, including this striking Heathergem Golf Pitch Repair & Ball Marker (pictured: £16.95) or lovely Scottie Dog Heathergem Brooch (£17.95). Each beautiful gift comes with a story card which explains the unique way in which Heathergems are made.

From intricate flowers to romantic hearts, Linda Macdonald Jewellery’s gorgeous collections are all inspired by the nature surrounding her beloved home in the beautiful town of Cardross.

Pop into one of the Linda Macdonald Jewellery stockists to choose a timeless treasure that will make your loved one feel cherished every day. We think that these silver and gold drop earrings (£105.50) from Linda’s Forget Me Not range are simply exquisite.

If you’re looking for something a bit more traditional why not choose a Pictish or Celtic inspired piece from Hebridean Jewellery? Detailed Celtic interlacing has been used to embellish statement pieces for centuries and still looks just as striking today.

From cufflinks and kilt pins to earrings and necklaces, you’ll find a huge selection of Celtic inspired and contemporary pieces for both men and women.
