Luxury jewellery retailer Laings held an exclusive evening at the Argyll Arcade in Glasgow to toast its refurbished flagship.
This summer Laings completed a major refurbishment of its flagship showroom inside the historic arcade.
The re-opening comes a little more than a year after Laings of Glasgow acquired Laings of Edinburgh and Parkhouse to reunite two halves of the jewellery and watch business that were grown under the stewardship of brothers Stewart Laing, OBE, and Michael Laing, OBE, before they both retired.
Laings is now one of the largest family-owned jewellery companies in the UK, with seven stores in Glasgow, Edinburgh, Cardiff and Southampton.
Every store has now been re-branded as Laings, meaning customers will be able to identify a Laings boutique more easily, and the jeweller can begin to promote itself with national advertising.
To celebrate the refurbishment of its Glasgow flagship, Laings took over the historic Argyll Arcade.
The blue carpet in the arcade was lined with autumn trees and striking images from the luxury jeweller’s autumn campaign.
Attendees on the night had the chance to admire the indulgent new look of the family-run store.
The expanded space includes watch areas dedicated to the giants of the watchmaking world, Patek Philippe and Rolex, as well as the newly created private area for Bespoke Jewellery Design and Valuations.
On the night guests had the chance to browse a selection of show-stopping jewellery as well as trying on some models from the top brands from the world of haute horology.
There was also a competition on the night and one lucky winner walked away with a sparkling Laings prize.Guests could chose an exclusive Laings champagne glass, each with its own unique four-digit code that would then unlock a special cabinet. The winner on the night was delighted to walk away with sapphire pendant from Laings exclusive Anna range, which is part of their beautiful Family collection.
General manager, Claire Ross notes: “It was fantastic to see customers enjoying the new store look. Many of them hadn’t visited since the refurbishment was finished and it was a great opportunity to raise a glass with them and celebrate the new surroundings.”
