Hampton Court becomes home of four-year-old firm's studio and shop.
Personalised jewellery brand Joulberry has opened its first showroom and studio in Hampton Court, close to a number of specialist independent retailers including gift shops and antique dealers.
The British bespoke jewellery brand, which is four years old, will offer its personalised and commission-based product range for customers to browse. The shop is also a chance to meet the designers in person to discuss commissions and see the craftsmen at work in the studio, which is attached to the showroom.
The space takes inspiration from Joulberry founders Sandra Dunn and Therese Kober’s love of all things vintage, with vintage props that bring the jewellery to life.
The space is decorated with crystal chandeliers, while jewellery is displayed on reclaimed printer trays that Kober rescued from a printworks that was closing down.
The showroom will be open seven days a week showcasing both Joulberry’s personalised jewellery offer and its new 24 Hour collection, which launched in July this year offering a selection of pre-stamped handmade pieces to celebrate certain special occasions. The range is designed to be shipped the same day and delivered before 1pm the next working day, as "the perfect solution for a last minute gift".
Dunn and Kober described the store opening as "a labour of love", with Dunn commenting: "Opening our showroom has been a long held dream of ours as well as a firm base from which to launch our retail aspirations for the future growth of Joulberry into national and international retail."
Kober, creative director for the business, added: "Customers can now enter a physical world of Joulberry not just our online store. They can touch, feel and discuss bespoke commissions with our team ensuring an even higher level of personal service that has become synonymous with Joulberry."
The brand also sells its collections through Not On the High Street.
