Jewellery specialist to open London flagship store

The new London store

Austen & Blake, the Manchester-based creator of high quality diamond jewellery, has announced that six jobs have been created alongside the opening of its brand new London store.

And it says it aims to open a further four stores.

Established in 2012, Austen & Blake will be joining London’s jewellery quarter at 8 Greville Street, in the famous district of Hatton Garden.

This will be the engagement ring specialist’s first store in the capital, increasing its total UK store count to five, including its Leeds, Liverpool, Manchester and Glasgow stores.

Austen & Blake’s regional sales manager, Tony French, said: “We are tremendously excited and proud to be opening our first UK store since 2020 and to be in London’s famous Hatton Garden, is the icing on the cake.”

He added: “The opening of this store further strengthens our store portfolio with Austen & Blake already in Manchester, Leeds, Glasgow and Liverpool.

“We look forward to providing exceptional service and high quality jewellery at the best prices to our London customers.”

“We also have plans to open another four stores by the end of this year, so we have a very busy 2022 to look forward to.”

Austen & Blake has signed a 10-year lease on the London store.

In December last year, the firm opened its Glasgow branch.
