About Emmy London

Early Life

Emmy Scarterfield grew up in rural Somerset. But rather than slipping on a pair of wellies, she was sliding wooden blocks into her socks to create high heels and this obsession for shoes still exists today. And being a descendant of Charles Digby Harrods, the founder of the world famous, iconic Harrods in Knightsbridge, entrepreneurship and luxury retail was always very much in Emmy’s blood. Attending London’s prestigious Cordwainers College of footwear and fashion, Emmy followed her dreams amongst the likes of former graduates Jimmy Choo, Emma Hope and Patrick Cox.

Experience & Expertise

After graduating, Emmy kick-started her career at Marks and Spencer’s, learning the essential ingredients to successfully getting desirable products to market. Making the move to Milan, Emmy continued to gain experience at one of the top fashion houses, Giorgio Armani. Soon after Emmy was asked to assist fashion designer Stuart Vevers to create an accessory line for the notorious luxury fashion house Bottega Veneta. In 2004 Emmy returned to the UK to launch her own luxury fashion brand which has gone from strength to strength ever since.

Since its creation, Emmy London has evolved as a recognised luxury lifestyle brand, focusing on bridal & event shoes and accessories that encompass undeniable beauty, bespoke craftsmanship and quintessentially British style. Whilst attention to detail is at the heart of everything the designer represents, it’s the hidden diamond on the sole of the shoes and the band of the rings that captures the hearts of her fans.

In 2016 Emmy proudly designed a diamond jewellery collection exclusively for H.Samuel, a natural addition to the ever-evolving Emmy “finishing touches”. Ever since, the collection has grown with stunning new rings, necklaces and earrings being added to the range – proving a popular choice for devoted Emmy fans and H.Samuel customer alike.

The designer passionately believes in pioneering the balance of pure beauty and comfort, intricate detailing, immaculate finishes and luxury materials. This ethos is immediately apparent in everything Emmy Scarterfield creates and at H.Samuel we’re proud to have Emmy London jewellery in our stores and online.
