The Heart Of Ltd. has acquired the former Nicholas James jewellery shop in the heart of Hatton Garden with the intention of opening its third jewellery emporium.
Director Jonny Deal currently operates two ‘jewellery exchanges’, The Heart of Hatton Garden Jewellery Emporium (pictured), which has been operating for 10 years, and Boutique 36, which has been open for seven years.
Deal has acquired the lease for the Nicholas James premises located at 16-18 Hatton Garden. The space is about 3,000sqft and will house 15 high-end independent retail jewellers.
The Heart Of Ltd. will name its new location, The Wonder Gallery, with plans to open seven days per week except on national holidays.
Each unit will contain a minimum of two and a maximum of four display counters, and the same amount of Eurograde 3 safes.
Rents will start at £1,000 plus VAT per week and there are three packages for each unit, offering discounts of up to 30% depending on the length of the lease taken.
The Heart of Hatton Garden Jewellery Emporium offers visitors the chance to buy, sell and browse all kinds of jewellery and watches, with repairs and customisation also available. It hosts over 50 units, including a lower ground floor dedicated to diamond merchants, wholesaler suppliers, dealers, watch repairs and jewellery services in the UK.
