To mark the royal wedding weekend Peter Jackson the Jeweller showcased a rare replica set of the Crown Jewels at its stores around the country.
Touring its stores, the special exhibition was in Carlisle on Monday, Blackburn on Tuesday, Bury on Thursday, Preston on Friday, and the retailer’s new Thomas Sabo shop on Sunday.
The exhibit, which includes replicas of St. Edward’s Crown, the Imperial State Crown, Queen Victoria’s Crown and Princess Diana’s Tiara attracted hundreds of guests each day, and ten school parties were invited to have a look.
Managing director of the eponymous store, Peter Jackson, shares: “It has been the busiest but most exciting week I can ever remember; our customers have been enthralled by the exhibition and the media have loved it.”
On Wednesday morning, the collection was shown class by class to the pupils of Kirkham Grammar School and in the evening to a ‘State Banquet’ at Nutters Restaurant in Manchester.
On Saturday night, Peter Jackson the Jeweller supported a Bite Club event in Lytham and helped to raise several thousand pounds for Meningitis Research.
The special events were covered by Cumbria’s News and Star, Blackburn’s Lancashire Evening Telegraph, The Bury Times, Preston’s Lancashire Evening Post and the Manchester Evening News as well as BBC Radio Lancashire and That’s Lancashire TV.
