We have grown since the outset to become a multi-million pound business. Our growth accelerated in February 2014 when Kate Middleton, The Duchess of Cambridge, was spotted wearing one of our necklaces. Since then, our brand has benefited from increased media attention; we tripled the team and have recently won several awards including the prestigious Queen’s Award for Enterprise 2017. We have a very close relationship with our partners in the UK and abroad including Notonthehisghstreet.com. In March 2016 we opened a new office in Paris to develop the French market and our website is also translated in German and US English.
