Meet Phil Spencer - The Founder 🎯

Ladies and Gentlemen, Phil Spencer, mastermind behind the multiple award-winning, London DE is an ethical jeweller, keen on social good and building a sustainable jewellery business.👏👏👏In 2013, banking on his entrepreneurial spirit, passion for jewellery and a strong business case for ethical jewellery, he birthed London DE. This leap of faith has brought him much fulfillment and continues to put a smile 😊 on his face and that of his clients. But his career path hasn't always gleamed as is now. After university, Phil served as a Commissioned Officer in the Royal Navy, but felt uninspired so he ventured into the financial services sector. Still, he felt unsettled. However, London DE is now home as has been for the last seven years and counting.
