She studied painting in London before training as a Goldsmith at DCE (Design College Enmore). She has a Diploma of Gemmology from the (GAA). Sophie moved to Paris in 1993 where she worked with Chaumet in the Place Vendôme. Here she was mesmerized by the exceptional and rare jewellery making techniques she was able to learn from Master Goldsmiths and researching in the archives. She loved being part of the design team, assisting in the creation of new designs. This truly inspired Sophie to go on and create her own label, Sophie Keegan. Which she did in London, in Notting Hill. During Sophie’s career, she has designed pieces for Hermès and collaborated with Asprey.

Sensual and distinctive design is key: Sophie’s ‘Monogram’ collection of elegant diamond-set letters have a cult following and have been featured in both British and German Vogue. These are combined with gold handmade chains she has hand made in Germany.
Exceptional craftsmanship and rare femininity lie at the core of Sophie’s creations with each piece possessing an undeniable modernity and elegance. Each piece is made to last for a lifetime.
