As if sleeping in, working from home with my cat, and writing for a living isn’t awesome enough, for the past few months, I’ve had the pleasure of writing about one of my greatest loves… jewellery! And even better, antique and vintage jewellery!
I collect antique and vintage jewellery, and I’ve written quite a few times about the wonderful relationship I have with Farringdons Jewellery in London’s Hatton Garden. Reputable jewellers are worth their weight in platinum, and I don’t deal with anyone but Farringdons! Over the past two years, I’ve done some bespoke projects and acquired several antique and vintage pieces from them.
Yes, I name them : -) Unfortunately, after over six months, my diamond bracelet is still nameless. I usually name my pieces before Robert has even swiped his debit card, but this one has me stumped. Please leave me suggestions in the comments ; -)
Long story short, the last time I was in London, Farringdons mentioned that they were redoing their website. Writing content about a subject I love for a business I love is pretty much the stuff freelancers’ dreams are made of, so I pitched them on the spot and was ecstatic when they asked me to write the content for their entire website because… jewellery!!!
Over the past few months, I’ve had an absolute blast putting words to over 400 beautiful pieces of jewellery (it was so difficult not to name and/or buy some of them!), and today, Farringdons’ new website finally went live!
If you love beautiful things, you’ll love this website. Farringdons have the most stunning collection of antique and vintage jewellery I’ve seen for sale anywhere, and they also deal in pre-owned pieces from designers like Cartier, Boodles, DeBeers, Theo Fennell, and Tiffany & Co., as well contemporary and bespoke pieces. And now every single piece of their inventory is online!
So even if you can’t make it to London to see one of Hatton Garden’s most beautiful window displays in person, you can browse all of Farringdons’ pretty things online. Georgian earrings? Art Deco bracelets? Victorian and Edwardian engagement rings? 1950s & 1960s cocktail rings? Tiffany & Co. diamond necklaces? Yes, please!!! And much to Robert’s dismay, they ship ; -)
You can visit Farringdons’ brand new website here, and they also have a pretty sweet Instagram feed! Oh, and if you’re looking for a freelance copywriter or editor and you like the tone of the new Farringdons Jewellery website, don’t hesitate to get in touch :)
