Over the past 12 months, Zack and Max Stone have successfully expanded their 79-year-old family business locally, nationally, and now even internationally, with a head office in Hale, Cheshire, and showrooms in Marylebone, London, and Palm Beach, Florida.
“As our experience and knowledge increased, we knew we wanted to take the business to the next level. And with a large section of our client base in the south, and a growing number of customers abroad, the evolution and expansion of the business seemed to be a natural step,” says Zack.
“Being in our twenties, and able to devote lots of time to moving the business with the times and ensuring its success, we felt the time was right for that expansion.”
Indeed, the brothers live and breathe the business, along with their father Steven, who is based in the US. They regularly travel the world seeking the best and most unusual gems to create stunning and unique pieces of jewellery, and have spent the past six months working on a stylish new website for the now-transatlantic business. “We believe this website will really help to launch our name and take our brand global,” Zack enthuses.
The company’s long-held reputation for engagement and wedding rings has also continued to increase, and a brand new jewellery collection is soon to launch.
“The last 12 months have made us immensely proud. It has been tough developing the right brand, opening two new stores just weeks apart and building a fabulous team around us, but we have made great progress and the future looks bright,” Max concludes.
