This post should be titled 'Collinson Jewellers - A girls best friend!' I was invited along by the lovely Harry Collinson earlier this week to pop in store and take a peak at their new stock. I had SO much fun and I now have a wishlist a mile long.
It was a perfect Autumn day today and I decided to walk into town to get a manicure and meet Harry - please excuse my nails in the photos. Collinson Jewellers is based on the corner of Crowtree Road (near TK Maxx for you NE'ers) and you can't really miss it - the windows are full of diamonds and bright coloured gemstones!
Harry showed me around the store and told me all about the history of the shop which was started by his parents as a watch and clock repair shop way back in 1981. There really is something for everyone, from Michael Kors, Links of London, Pandora to the exclusive Hearts on Fire range and I have to admit... this was probably my favourite.
The 'Hearts on Fire' range features the worlds most perfectly cut diamonds and I had a little lesson on how to spot this. I also got to try a few pieces on and boy do they sparkle... they're the prettiest stones I've ever seen in my life.
While in the shop I spotted lots of potential presents for various people (I won't say who) but the great thing was there was something to fit every price bracket. You can shop online but I really recommend a visit to have a play and try everything on and make sure you tell them who sent you!
