Brighton retailer celebrates fifth anniversary with diamond rings.
Brighton’s Baroque Jewellery is set to launch a new collection called Bit of Rough in celebration of its shop’s fifth anniversary and its first move into wholesale.
Each ring in the new Bit of Rough Collection is crafted in 18ct gold and platinum. The rings are set with rough-cut diamonds of which no two are the same. The rose gold is paired with a warm, cinnamon-coloured faceted rough diamond, whilst the yellow gold rings are set with yellow-hued diamonds with yellow diamonds set into the shoulders shoulders.
RRPs for the designs start at £700, rising to £2,400, and Baroque can also take individual commissions based on the collection.
Speaking of the new lines, one of Baroque’s founders Jason French said: “Here at Baroque we have always loved a bit of rough, especially when it comes to the hardest substance known to man – diamonds. Using conflict-free diamonds, our Bit of Rough Collection is perfect for the girl who likes her bling understated but completely unique – each stone is so different, you’ll never see another one like it.
Over the past five years we’ve made hundreds of engagement rings for individual customers, but I love these little rough beauties the most,” he added.
Baroque Jewellery is considered one of the most cutting-edge jewellery retailers in the south, offering designer jewellery and bespoke collections.
The shop and workshop – owned by designer-makers Pippa Knowles, Kyle McIntosh and Jason French – is situated in the city’s thriving jewellery quarter, the Lanes.
The three owners were featured in Professional Jeweller’s Hot 100 in 2010, and continue to attract celebrity fans including Ronnie Wood and TV presenter Rufus Hound.
“It’s hard to believe we’ve been in business for five years, and I hope customers will continue to support us and be loyal to our brand,” added French.
“We’re constantly striving to make jewellery that’s a bit different, one-off pieces that stand out from the crowd, so if you’re looking for a really special piece, Baroque is the shop for you.”
