Tory Long Jewellery is a collection of contemporary and stylish jewellery, ideal for a pared back casual look or layered up to make a statement.
Designed and made in Ireland, the collection is inspired by simplicity with a twist.
The dream was to create aspirational jewellery that is affordable and accessible, bridging the gap between high street and high end.
Tory Long Jewellery is designed and hand crafted by Tory from her studio in Belfast, Northern Ireland.
Originally from Belfast Tory’s childhood dream was to become a jewellery designer, beginning as a young girl borrowing her Dad's pliers and wire to make earrings. She moved to Dublin in 2001 to study Business at Trinity College Dublin and after graduating spent over a decade building a career in fashion buying and merchandising with Selfridges Group department stores Arnotts and Brown Thomas, whilst continuing in her spare time to make jewellery completing silversmith courses and creating bespoke pieces on request for weddings and gifts.
After noticing a gap in the market for stylish yet affordable jewellery the brand was launched in 2013.
The brand won the jewellery category award at Showcase Ireland in 2015 and in the same year was selected to participate and retail as one of the designers in Brown Thomas Create.
The collection has been stocked in Brown Thomas, Arnotts, April and the Bear, Not On The High Street and So Collective in Kildare Village.
Tory has since returned home to Belfast to focus on designing and creating.
