Retailer hosts launch party for special line of jewels.

Holts Gems in Hatton Garden has launched a new collection of gemstone rings called Cocktail Hour, as large coloured stones continue to win consumer attention.

The store, which supplies both consumers with coloured stones, offering a bespoke service as well as finished jewellery, held a launch party for the Cocktail Hour range earlier this month, inviting bloggers and stylists to view the new collection.


Holts Group CEO, Jason Holt said of the launch: “The evening was a huge success and our Cocktail Hour range was very well received. It was lovely to see so many of our customers enjoying the evening and we look forward to hosting more events.”

The new range includes sizeable coloured gemstone rings, many of which are orbited by diamonds or set in unusual precious metal settings. Among the stones used are amethysts, peridots, garnets and tanzanite, with the hero ring of the collection – the Aurora – set with a colourful black opal with a price tag of £16,500.

The launch party included a canapé menu created and served by Allegra McEvedy, the co-founder healthy food chain Leon, while three gemstone-themed cocktail were made specially for the launch event by a London mixologist.
