Dower & Hall AW13 Press Day

Monday, 5 August 2013
Hello everyone. On the 1st of August I was invited along to the Dower & Hall store in Glasgow for their Autumn/Winter Press Day. Dower & Hall is a jewellers that's been around for a while now that was started by a married couple. All of the jewellery is hand made and absolutely beautiful. They have two stores: one in the Princes Square centre in Glasgow and another in Spitalfields, London.

The shop is absolutely beautiful. They have lots of cabinets full of lots of lovely shiny jewellery, we easily spent about an hour just wandering around looking at the jewellery. One thing that I really liked was that above the cabinets they had photos of the jewellery being hand crafted(photos below). These were very hard to photograph but I wanted to include them as it shows the time and effort that goes into making every piece.

We were greeted with some orange juice and macroons and spent a while talking with Amanda, Dower & Hall's press officer, about the new collections. I've included photos of some of my favourites. The azure collection was something that me and Charlotte both really loved.  They have beautiful turquoise stones in everything from rings to bracelets and in lots of different styles and sizes. I really loved the bracelet photographed below where they mixed rose gold and gold, it was so beautiful.

Another collection that I absolutely loved was the feather collection. I particularly have my eye on the necklace on the right, how great would it look over a buttoned up shirt? What I really liked about this collection was that the pieces are all mixed metals. I particularly liked the feathers made with oxidised silver, which has a black tinge, because I felt it have the pieces a bit more rock n roll.

And finally the luscious letter collection. I think a piece from this collection would make a really good Christmas present. Who would say no to a beautiful piece of jewellery that's personalised? All of the letters of the alphabet will be available in gold, rose gold and silver once the collection is launched.

Look at all the yummy food! I've never tried a macaroon before because to be honest I didn't think they seemed all that appealing. I was wrong! They're chewy and delicious and now I want more. Definitely going to try making my own.

We were very kindly gifted with a bracelet at the end of the event. I choose the Sterling Silver Black Misanga Bracelet. It's absolutely beautiful. I'm not really one for wearing bracelets so I'm hoping that this will bring back the urge to wear bracelets. I'm wearing it now as I type this up and I'm absolutely in love with it! Thank you so much Dower & Hall!
