December 2016 - Birmingham fine and bridal jewellery manufacturer Hockley Mint will unveil a fresh and exciting collection of new wedding rings at Jewellery & Watch Birmingham in February.
The 56-piece new collection will feature classic diamond-set wedding rings, in four different widths and with two options for stone coverage. An extension to Hockley Mint’s existing Pure wedding rings collection, Hockley Mint has developed this collection following consultation with its retail partners and sales team. The range allows retailers to work closely with their customers to create their own wedding band by choosing their favourite diamond-set style and then picking the width that fits best with their Wedfit engagement ring.
All of the new rings will be available in 18ct gold, platinum and palladium, as well as in Fairtrade gold.
In addition to the new wedding ring collection, Hockley Mint will also showcase its existing Wedfit ranges and its award-winning Arctic Circle line, which features fully traceable Canadian diamonds set in Fairtrade gold, at February’s Jewellery & Watch show. Its fully branded MariMe bridal jewellery range, which launched at IJL in September and recently won best Bridal Jewellery Collection of 2016 in Professional Jeweller’s Collections of the Year, will also be on display.
Visitors to the stand will be invited to find out more about the Retailer Open Days scheme that Hockley Mint will launch in 2017. The events aim to give retailers a unique insight into the range of services and products available from Hockley Mint – all designed and made in Birmingham using state-of-the-art technology as well as traditional jewellery-making techniques – before inviting them to spend time in informal networking sessions.
Hockley Mint managing director Gary Wroe said: “Next year is set to be big for Hockley Mint and we are looking forward to building on the success of 2016. Our new wedding ring collection is perfect for retailers who want to be able to sit with a customer to create a ring that meets their unique needs and style, and we are really pleased with the breadth of product we now offer.
“We are also really looking forward to holding our first ever Retailer Open Days next year. At Hockley Mint we are always keen to support independent retailers, and this is a unique opportunity for us all to work together to strength the industry and champion what we offer. Please do visit our stand at Jewellery & Watch 2017 to find out more.”
Hockley Mint will be exhibiting on stand 17R30/S31 at Jewellery & Watch 2017, which takes place at Birmingham’s NEC from 5th to 9th February 2017.
