Our Story

Hanna, Founder & Director at The Collective Boutique 

Who is The Collective.

The Collective Boutique was launched online in August 2013 by jewellery and fashion lover, Hanna Nicholson. With experience in marketing, PR and jewellery retail, Hanna dreamed of setting up her own jewellery business. Growing up with her mother and grandmother’s love for antiques and the Art Deco era has without doubt also influenced her own style and product selection. Hanna runs The Collective Boutique from her seaside HQ in Brighton, East Sussex.


What We Do.

Hanna meticulously sources pieces from independent British and international designers, hand-picking each piece for its originality, quality and personality. Affordability is also key in her curation to allow customers to collect and invest in unique jewellery or perhaps to search out a thoughtful gift for family and friends.


What We Look For.

We look for like-minded makers who have a story to tell and a strong design ethic. These are not purchases which will disappear to the bottom of your jewellery box, they are made to be worn and enjoyed over and over again. Some might be more classic or more fashion-led than others but they will always have a durability about them, whatever the season.

Why Shop With Us.

We appreciate that sometimes the virtual world can be a minefield of options, without the possibility to try those options on – so you can shop with us knowing that you have 14 days to return your purchase if it’s not quite right. From placing your order through to receiving your parcel, we take great pride in delivering the best service possible. Whether it’s the handwritten note with your order or the bespoke gift-wrap, every attention to detail is made in the process.
