Nude Jewellery was established in 2001 and is based in Shepherd Market; a charming small square and piazza developed in 1735-46 by Edward Shepherd. This tiny little enclave is tucked away between Piccadilly and Curzon Street, in the exclusive borough of Mayfair.
Mayfair itself is named after the infamous fifteen-day fair that took place on the site that is Shepherd Market today. The fair was banned in 1708 due to the its revellers' relentless boisterousness and disorder. A local architect and developer (Edward Shepherd), was commissioned to develop the site after the ban, and it was completed in the mid 18th century. With paved alleys, a duck pond, and a two-storey market, topped with a theatre, it was opened in the month of May and attracted a much higher class of visitor than the noisy, unruly fair beforehand.
Nowadays, Shepherd Market is better known for its chic boutiques, intimate little restaurants and impressive Victorian pubs.
