Beautifully Britsh and proudly flying the flag

Our little patriotic nod to the Royal Wedding and current Anglo-mania; customised Union Jack flags dotted around our stores tweaked to our Dinny Hall brand colours. Just a little bit of fun more than anything but have you spotted them around our stores yet?

Flying the flag that we are a British brand and proudly so!

Whilst we’ll of course be wishing the lovely Prince Wills and Kate all the luck in the world, we wanted to let you know that if you are celebrating nuptials of your own our team of skilled in-house goldsmiths can create bespoke items especially for you and your special day.  Please ask in one of our stores for more information!

Forget Me Not... This Easter

I'm off away now for a long Easter break, which I couldn't be more ready for, it's definitely time to relax!
But before I go I wanted to tell you about my beautiful new Flower rings...

  They are not only exclusive to our Dinny Hall Liberty concession this Easter but they are my pick for styling out Spring too!
Pictured above is the 'Primrose' version of the Flower ring, a twinkling multi facetted yellow beryl surrounded by five amethyst set in solid sterling silver, £365.

The Flower ring is also available in selected semi precious stones:  You can make a ‘Forget me Not’ with blue topaz or a ‘Daisy’ with white topaz.

Or why not be creative and commission another flower of your choice to celebrate Spring in your own style!
The Flower ring is available in any combination of these semi precious stones, price on application:

Amethyst - Pale purple
Blue topaz - Aqua blue
White topaz - Clear
Apatite - Turquoise
Rhodalite - Burgundy pink
Yellow beryl - Yellow

I wish you all a happy time in whatever you choose to do this weekend,
whether it be fun filled, peaceful or both!
Happy Easter all!

W11 en Francais

Over the years I have appeared in various publications focussing on the fact that I really have been selling my baubles in Notting Hill for along time. So Rachel has dug up a few press cuttings to show just for fun.
Much has changed since we first opened the shop in 1992, gone are all the junk shops and small independent boutiques, the post office, the newsagent, the garage and the pub next door where we watched the collapse of the Twin Towers in disbelief.

The transvestite no longer roller-skates by in hot pants led by a coiffure giant poodle and even the was cool celebs (like Hugh Grant and Robbie Williams) that used to hang out here seem to have gone.

It's still all very smart though and some of the new shops are full of very desirable things (202 next door has a fab new clothes emporium down stairs it's no longer Nicole Farhi by the way and I love Theory and Matches of course ) but over all we seem to be going French.

Don’t get me wrong, I love all things French, but I hope that these new people frequenting (a lot of Euro banker types) my patch here in W11 love Dinny Hall jewellery truly a Notting Hill brand with genuine credentials.
