Art Deco – 1920s Glamour Returns
This month we are looking at one of this year’s hottest jewellery trends – the resurgence of Art Deco jewellery pieces. Art Deco takes its name from the Arts Decoratif exhibition in Paris, France in 1925 and is synonymous with bold lines, dynamic geometry and delicacy of curve.
Customer Stories – Build-a-ring
This month’s blog is the first in a series of ‘customer stories’ where Michala Heaton, the Doble In-house Jewellery Designer, talks about a memorable piece of jewellery she has designed.
Michala Heaton, Sales & Jewellery Consultant and In-house Designer
Based at their Sidwell Street office in Exeter, Michala is the lady you see when you would like to commission the design of a new bespoke piece of jewellery, or would like an antique piece of jewellery to be remodeling and adapted. Her artistry started with a degree in fine art where she specialized in sculpture, which then lead her onto a course in graphic design and finally a career in jewellery design. She has been with Doble Jewellers for 7 years now and the thing she loves most about the job is that no two days are the same.
If you are thinking of popping the question this Spring, then here are Doble’s tips for what you need to think about.
Greg Haines, Head Goldsmith at Doble Jewellers, has learnt his craft as a master jeweller sitting at this workshop bench for over 20 years. He is highly skilled in honing fine jewellery whether it’s repairs, alterations or commissions.
