Hannah’s Story

Hannah Oertel

“My Mum had a huge black case full of boxes and pouches where I could find every type of jewellery imaginable. I would always beg her to get the case out and would love looking through all those vintage pieces, trying things on and hearing the stories behind them, it felt magical and gave me my love of jewellery. 

I actually started my first jewellery business at the age of 10. Going into the bead shop felt like Aladdin’s cave and I would spend hours on the floor of my bedroom bringing pieces to life. My dad fashioned a kind of sandwich board and I wore my full collection like a tiny, female Del-Boy. Up and down the streets I went and “Jolly Jewellery” was deemed a success. Never mind the fact a small child with homemade creations was standing on people’s doorsteps, I was convinced it was my show stopping designs that were winning people over!

As an adult, I found my footing as an entrepreneur and went on to become a business coach. I helped mentor and coach other business owners all over the world as they started and scaled their businesses and still work with a very limited number of clients today. And whilst I loved helping people with the vision, strategy and branding for their businesses, I sometimes felt desperate to get my hands dirty in my own work. I am a creative at heart and knew it was time to return to my first love of jewellery. 

I wanted to create a brand that cared about quality, design, affordability, giving back and their customers. So in the middle of lockdown 2020, the journey began. 

But who is Olivia Cooper? Olivia Cooper is the ultimate girl next door. She cares about fashion but also about our planet and people. She cares about quality products that are affordable. She knows how one piece of jewellery can elevate a whole outfit. She knows what suits her but isn’t afraid to try new things. She is YOU!

I hope you have as much joy wearing our pieces as I have creating them.”

Our Values

Our Materials

At Olivia Cooper we craft all our Scottish-designed pieces in 18ct gold vermeil (pronounced ver-may), thick 18ct gold on sterling silver. At 5 times thicker than standard gold plating, vermeil lasts. No more rubbing off and showing the silver underneath. Because who wants to wear that jewellery?

Our luxury necklaces are more affordable than solid gold but you can still wear them in the same way and they will stand the test of time.

We source all our gold, pearls and gemstones from manufacturers with a proven ethical supply chain.

Our Commitment

It’s not just the quality we are proud of but our commitment to slow fashion where we always strive to do better:

  • We are a carbon neutral company.
  • We give back 10% of our net profits to charity. See our giving back policy  here.
