Family run jewellery store expands to three times original size.

Sarah Layton, a family-run jeweller in Whalley, Lancashire, has increased the size of its store three times over, enabling it to increase its range of brands while adding a large-scale Georg Jensen shop-in-shop area.

The store opened in 2010 and presently stocks collections by Anna Loucah, Jersey Pearl, Kit Heath, Kranz & Ziegler and Shaun Leane.


The extension has allowed Sarah Layton to increase its number of jewellery and watch brands, while Georg Jensen is a new addition to the store’s repertoire.

Gill Layton-Hill, director of the store, said: “We’ve recently extended our shop to three times its original size which has allowed us to be able to further increase the collections we can offer.

“We are proud and excited to now stock Georg Jensen jewellery, watches and living [goods]. We have also added more to our ranges of Thomas Sabo, Pandora, Nomination, Kranz & Ziegler, Clogau Gold and Jersey Pearl.”

Leyton-Hill runs the store with her two daughters. They closed the space for a week while the final shopfit took place. It was carried out by JKB Shopfitting, after Leyton-Hill acquired the shop space next door in January, and began work on the space a few weeks later.

Sarah Layton is due to begin stocking fine jewellery by Ungar & Ungar and Hans D. Kreiger in the coming weeks.
