Independent jewellery retailer Steven Stone has returned to where the business was originally founded over 80 years ago.
The fine jewellery-focused firm opened the doors to a new showroom in Manchester’s Spinningfields area on Monday, December 3.
This new boutique in Manchester will join the company’s other showrooms located in Marylebone, London, and Hales, Greater Manchester.
Steven Stone has an 81-year-long history of using some of the world’s finest ethically sourced diamonds and precious stones for use in one-off and ready to wear pieces of fine jewellery.
Since taking over control of the company in 2012 as directors, brothers Zack and Max Stone have expanded the company’s products and services to online customers, and now to people in inner Manchester.
The Manchester showroom will act as a jewellery consultation area and customers will get the opportunity to have a focused, in-depth discussion about the design of their bespoke piece of jewellery.
Max Stone shares: “We’ve wanted to be in the heart of Manchester for some time now and Spinningfields is the ideal place. It’s an exciting area to be in and it just makes sense to open a showroom there.”
Located in the 16-storey, 3 Hardman Square building in Spinningfields, Steven Stone’s new showroom offers a personal and highly tailored jewellery shopping experience which puts customers in direct contact with jewellery experts.
The 400sq foot space is fitted out to a high standard to reflect the prestige of the brand. It will be open from Monday to Saturday.
Zack Stone continues: “We want to be more accessible to future clients. Being able to discuss a piece with someone in person lets us deliver the kind of product clients expect when it comes to a bespoke jewellery making service.”
When asked why they are opening a consultation only showroom as opposed to a high street store, Max Stone reveals: “Appointment only showrooms let us prepare for and focus our consultations with clients to find out exactly what they want, giving them a personalised experience. No one stands around waiting or vying for a consultant’s attention.”
The company has plans for further expansion in 2019, based on the success of the London showroom and their growing online presence.
