SHOP TALK with Knight Jewellers

The view of Brexit by Knight Jewellers.

2016 was a challenging year for sales and in the run up to the Brexit vote, sales were very subdued. However, the day after the voting had been concluded and the announcement to leave Europe had been made, we saw an immediate and positive increase in sales. This followed through to the end of the year where Christmas sales were our best ever.

A direct impact that Brexit has caused on the jewellery industry, is the fall in the pound against the dollar, which in turn has pushed the price of diamonds and gold up. In the short term, we are trying to absorb this within our business, however, if the dollar remains strong against the pound, price increases may have to follow.

2017 has so far been strong and I am very optimistic for a good year ahead. #brexit #egba #knightjewellers

Pennyfarthing Jewellers in the Top 100 of inspiring independent jewellers

Pennyfarthing have been chosen by their peers within the trade as one of the top 100 inspiring independent jewellers in the UK and Ireland.

Out of the blue, owner Steve Rogers received an e mail telling him that he had been chosen by his peers within the trade as one of the top 100 inspiring independent jewellers in the UK and Ireland.

Initially he didn’t believe it until they were invited to a recognition lunch near The Tower with the other jewellers from around the UK.

Fantastic news that an independent retailer in East Grinstead has been recognised in this way, and Steve is thrilled that doing something he loves as his job has placed them in such illustrious company.

He is definitely doing something right. #egba
