She replaces managing director Barbara Snoad who has left the business. The company said that Harper was experienced an experienced luxury goods operator would help build the jewellery brand into an international business.

Harper was chief executive of footwear supply company Lambert Howarth until it collapsed into administration in October. To date, administrators BDO Stoy Hayward have failed to find a buyer for the business and around 100 people have been made redundant. Harper's appointment at Theo Fennell will come as a surprise to the industry as she was rumoured to be attempting a rescue deal for Concept LH - the branded arm of Lambert Howarth.

Separately Theo Fennell said that sales were up 21% to £12.8 million for the six months to September 30. Pre-tax profit also rose 29% to £434,000 for the period.
