“Choosing the gorgeous Atzaro hotel for this night of very real talent and glamour, the event attracted jewellers of such calibre that it all sized up to be a 'not to miss'. Jewellers like Emma Chapman, her creations featured in Harpers Bazaar, Vogue, The Times, and pieces found in the National Portrait Gallery and the V&A, flew in to take part. Grabbing a glass of champagne in the warm summer evening air, Emma and her fellow creatives were there to chat with you, there to let you pick up, try on, admire and purchase (yes, I did) their creations”

"I love Emma Chapman's work: the intricate settings, the beautiful craftsmanship, the fact that all the gems have a meaning, and each piece of jewellery has a story.
Her love of India is evident in the mix of traditional techniques and her brilliant eye for design. These are all one off pieces - real works of art, must have pieces of jewellery."

"What is exceptional about Emma's work is that she combines exquisite ancient couture techniques, with a very high quality of craftsmanship. She has an amazing visual sense, which she uses to create totally unique pieces of jewellery for today. I've know Emma for a number of years and am impressed with the creativity and tenacity she shows in her work. Her departure into fine jewellery is a natural progression from her more commercial work and deserves to be taken to a wider audience."
Yvonne Fuchs, The Branding Workshop.
"An award-winning British jewellery designer, living between London and Jaipur, Emma creates stunning, opulent and exotic gemstone jewellery, in rich sumptuous colours. Her work has a contemporary western sensibility and yet draws upon India’s traditional fine jewellery craftsmanship mixing jaali, filigree, carving, engraving, embossing, and enamelling."

"One day a few years ago I was in the garden of Vivenda Guesthouse where we stay in Goa and Charlotte Hayward the owner introduced me to a beautiful blond woman called Emma. She had very pale, creamy skin, striking bone structure and a luminous smile. She was dressed in bright Indian clothes and seemed like a flower walking through the garden. She had contracted typhoid, ended up in hospital in Goa with Charlotte looking after her and was now recovering in the peace of the jungle. As luck would have it Emma Chapman designs bespoke jewelry just as beautiful as her - colourful, sophisticated and a little bit exotic. As luck would also have it, she had a selection with her and agreed to give my tour clients and I a little salon in Charlotte’s lounge at Vivenda. We sat around the table covered in wondrous rings, pendants, necklaces, earrings and bracelets. Everything got touched, tried on, exclaimed over and lots got bought to turn up later at gala evenings. What European women like about Emma’s jewelry is that it is Indian inspired with a Western twist - it is something exotic you would actually wear when you get home, unlike the lime green sari you thought was such a good idea. There are also varying price range, which is most helpful so you can go for the opulent diamonds or the more affordable gemstones like garnets, amethysts, topaz and rubies. Each piece is unique with its carving, engraving and jali (lattice) work. Emma uses silver, gold and vermeil (component metal) with a matt finish. A lot of the work is inspired by ancient mysticism, contains tribal and spiritual elements and is made by hand by local crafts people and stone cutters. She was originally discovered by Hilary Alexander, fashion director of the Telegraph and chosen as one of the most promising new designers of today. Since then she has exhibited numerous times at both London, New York and Paris Fashion Week and her jewellery features in British Vogue and Harpers Bazaar magazines."

"The discovery of new talent is one of life’s most exciting and satisfying experiences, and Emma Chapman’s sumptuously coloured gemstones make such an impact, hardly surprising as she came from a background of film-making working with stars like Juliette Binoche, Catherine Deneuve and Helena Bonham Carter."
"Emma Chapman combines her Western sensibility and ancient Indian techniques to make jewellery that captures the exoticism of India, but is wearable in the West."
Harpers Bazaar Magazine
