Kingdom was founded by Natasha Peck, our stone expert, and Dylan Lee, whose family has been in the lapidary business since the 1970s. In 2007, we met, fell in love, and started building an absurdly large collection of stones and gems. From Dylan’s gemologist father, we learned the nuances of sourcing in the rough and making high-quality cabochons.
At the same time, we became keen (obsessive) antique hunters, unearthing one-of-a-kind collectables from estate sales near and far. We merged these two passions—stones and antiques—when we launched Kingdom in 2014. We began crafting pieces that reflect our Americana aesthetic, selling them alongside heirlooms that we found and brought back to life.
Today, we split our time between our Vancouver studio and buying trips around the world in search of fresh inspiration.
