Scottish jewelry designer Ola Gorie
Born 27 October 1937 in Scotland, Ola Gorey is one of the most famous and award-winning British jewelry designers. Her work has influenced the modern generation of jewelry designers. She blends love of tradition with a taste for true originality.
After graduating from Gray’s School of Art in Aberdeen, she qualified as a goldsmith. Inspired by Celtic arts and crafts, as well as Norwegian heritage, she began creating unique jewelry designs in the 1960s. Her early pieces quickly gained popularity at home and abroad, and her name became synonymous with stylish, finely crafted jewelry.
Traditionally, the designer used sterling silver and 9-carat gold plating. Jewelry markings from 1963 to the 1990s included OMG (Ola Marie Gorie), also OG and “ST.SIL” (sterling silver).
In the 1990s, her company located at 11 Broad Street, Kirkwall, Orkney, employed 55 silversmiths who handcrafted high-quality artisan jewelry. Gori retired in 1997, and her daughter, textile designer Ingrid Tate, took over the business.
Created by renowned Scottish designer Olga Gorie wearable art pieces are collectible vintage.
