Having left the City in 2009, James turned his attention to entrepreneurship, art, and investment. Over the last ten years he has been working on his art, developing a style that is now getting attention from various London galleries. He says: “My work is generally hyper-realistic and energetic. I’m really pleased that there is a growing demand for my pieces – it’s an aspect of my life that I intend to continue working on.”

By cutting out the middle man and the traditional jeweller’s mark-ups, London Diamond produces super high-quality jewellery at a fair price.
The company’s customer base has grown organically through Instagram and consumer reviews. “We don’t rely on advertising,” says James. “Our clients do the talking for us – and their feedback is all that matters.
