Renowned for its boundless creativity, Olivia Burton is winning women over with its distinctly charming and affordable timepieces


By Paola Navarette

What happens when the steady beat of time keeps pace with that of a blooming heart?

It’s a question answered in a truly creative fashion by the designers who are at the center of Olivia Burton, a British accessories brand with a reputation for masterfully combining exquisite craftsmanship with a sense of whimsy.

Known for producing elegant timepieces that merge fashion and function, the company has established itself over seven years as a brand that combines modernity and timelessness.

Founded by best friends Jemma Fennings and Lesa Bennett, Olivia Burton draws inspiration from rustic blooms, vintage finds, and catwalk trends. Named after Lesa’s great aunt whose spirited approach and energy was a huge inspiration to the girls, Olivia Burton debuted its first collection in Sept. 2012. As fashion buyers, the two bonded over a love of design and a mutual desire to create unique accessories that can be treasured forever.

Designs are brought to life at the company’s studio in London, where the two work closely with their small team to ensure every piece is tweaked to perfection. Think intricate hand-illustrations, beautiful references to nature, and must-have color palettes—each piece surely fits different personalities and occasions with ease and adaptability.

Big, bold, beautiful— the Mother of Pearl White Bracelet is a timepiece for confident people. It features the dreamy beauty of iridescent mother-of-pearl on a high-impact midi dial, whose subtle tones in the rose gold finish truly make a statement.

Handpainted florals define the Watercolor Florals Midi Dial watch, a design that’s a must-wear with its eye-catching 34 mm dial printed in soft, pastel tones. Finished with a textured mesh strap, it’s the perfect everyday style to see you through the seasons.
