Winterson Luxury Pearl Jewellery ~ In The Hotseat

Now they say diamonds are a girls best friend, but surely pearls have to be a front runner too? I do love a pearl, especially a stunning string of them adorned around a beautiful neck. They are classic, and so on trend right now with the heritage/vintage fashions all over the catwalk. So I was really excited when Winterson emailed me, and couldn’t wait to find out more about their company.

{w} Hi Winterson, could you firstly tell {www} readers a little bit about you?

Winterson is an independent online designer and retailer of pearl jewellery. I hold a Pearls Graduate Diploma with the Gemological Institute of America, but also have a finance background in venture capital.

 

{w} How did you get into jewellery and into the wedding industry?

We launched Winterson last year as an online extension of a family business, which has been one of Europe’s leading specialist suppliers of high quality, luxury pearls for over 50 years. Pearls are a very traditional choice of gem for wedding jewellery and a natural focus for us.

 

{w} What do you love/dislike about your job?

We are fortunate in being able to work with such a beautiful product. Pearls are unique gems to design jewellery with. Not only do they have this incredible iridescence and colour, their reflections of light can be complex and stunning. It’s hard to dislike the emotion that this can generate.

 

{w} What do you aim to achieve for your clients?

Many brides choose to wear pearl jewellery on their wedding day. A white pearl necklace, pendant or earrings, perhaps matched with diamonds, is filled with symbolism for the occasion.

We set out with Winterson to offer our customers the convenience of a modern, web-based approach with old school service, expertise and quality. We specialise in pearls, travelling to the Far East several times a year to hand select pearls for our jewellery, which we hope our customers will treasure.

 

 

{w} What style is your jewellery?

Most of our jewellery is of a classic design, but we also try and use the full range of colour and pearl shapes that are available today. There are so many different directions for designers to take that the traditional notion of an old-fashioned set of pearls is completely changing. In a few weeks we will debut a new collection of pearl jewellery, designed by a young award winning British designer.

 

{w} Could you tell us some information about your prices?

We stock a wide range of pearl jewellery, all available for next day delivery and shipping to the UK, Europe and further overseas. Depending on the item, type of pearl and gemstones, this can be priced from just a hundred to tens of thousands of pounds for a unique pearl and diamond necklace. Our promise is to provide some of the finest ranges of pearl jewellery online at competitive prices.

 

{w} Do you have any tips for couples in selecting jewellery?

Always buy from a trusted specialist. As an organic gem, it is important to understand that the qualities of each pearl can vary. In particular, ask about the quality of the lustre, or in other words the sharpness of the reflection in the pearl. This is one of the most important value factors to look out for.

 

{w} How can we get in touch with you?

Either online through our website at www.winterson.co.uk, by mail at [email protected] or call us on 0207 183 2245. If you are hesitating about which piece of pearl jewellery is best suited for you, we would be happy to share our advice and experience.

Thanks so much to Winterson for letting us get to know you better. Do head over to their site and have  a browse at their gorgeous jewellery. What do you think about accessorising your wedding outfit with pearls girls? I think it would be just fabulous to see ;-) xoxo
