A man with jewellery in his blood, Alan Dalton first began fashioning his own work in the back of his family’s jewellery shop at the age of sixteen.

Trained to the highest standard of his craft, commencing with the Crafts Council of Ireland in Kilkenny, Alan was apprenticed to Master Goldsmith Gerald Heinrich in Stuttgart. Alan has recently qualified as a diamond grader with the Gemmological Association of Great Britain.

Prior to setting up his own studio in Dungarvan, Co. Waterford in 2002, Alan also worked with the celebrated Kilkenny jewellery designer Rudolph Heltzel.

“My goal is to create bespoke jewellery of the finest quality and craftsmanship – exclusive creations born of the unique desires of my customers. In this way every piece is a wish fulfilled.”
