Trying on diamonds and sipping champagne at Hancocks jewellers in Manchester was not a bad way to spend a couple of hours on a Saturday afternoon! I was invited by the lovely, family run and internationally renowned business to experience the store and learn about their jewellery.
The team were extremely friendly and knowledgeable, and I left dreaming of the £148,000 yellow diamond ring and £60,000 diamond necklace (!!!) that I tried on. Obviously there are more affordable pieces too, we were advised that customers can state their budget before starting browsing in order to have the best possible shopping experience. Whilst I have no plans to get engaged in the near or even fairly distant future, I definitely imagine that Hancocks is the kind of place I would like to get a ring from.
I also got this very snazzy Georg Jensen device in a very sweet goodie bag, which is for hanging your handbag from your desk!
