Heathergems began over 40 years ago when Hugh Kerr, a craftsman from Glenlivet began making small quantities in his workshop. Charles Buyers saw its potential and in 1970 set up a small factory in East Kilbridge which later moved to Blair Atholl where it remained for many years. After the deaths of both Hugh Kerr and Charles Buyers the family decided to move the factory to Pitlochry where it still operates as a factory and showroom.
Heathergems are handcrafted from natural heather which has been harvested, cleaned and dyed then compressed into a block under eighty tons of pressure. The block is then cut into slices and individual pieces are cut, shaped and lacquered ready for setting into the jewellery.
