Q&A: How are jewellers preparing for the return of full-scale weddings?

With the restrictions around weddings continuing to relax here in the UK, our Director Guy Burton spoke to Professional Jeweller magazine about the renewed interest in bridal jewellery and what we at Hancocks are doing to help brides choose their perfect wedding jewellery. 

Despite all the restrictions of the pandemic and lockdowns, we have continued to make bespoke engagement rings and wedding jewels for brides both at home and abroad, particularly in the United States.  Just in the last couple of months we have worked with couples from both the East and West coast of America, via email, telephone and WhatsApp, to create bespoke engagement rings, wedding bands and a very special pair of wedding earrings.

Guy also spoke about how we have seen a surge of interest in tiaras. Antique diamond tiaras have always been a popular choice for brides but coming out of the pandemic there is definitely a feeling of wanting to really celebrate and go the extra mile.  

We have been sourcing, making and selling exceptional jewellery for over 170 years from the heart of London’s Mayfair so are well placed to be able to cater to the heart’s desire of even the most exacting of brides! 

We have a wonderful and varied collection of antique, vintage and contemporary jewels, not just for brides but also grooms, bridesmaids and the mothers. 

Guy discussed our wonderful collection of antique, vintage and contemporary diamond jewellery as well as our love of old cut diamonds, which we specialise in. 

This offers brides an opportunity to select their ‘something old’ or ‘something new’ and alongside our diamond pieces we also have beautiful aquamarine and sapphire jewels for ‘something blue’ whilst our new tiara hire service allows brides to indulge in something truly special to complete the tradition with their ‘something borrowed’.
