If there’s one day you want to sparkle, it’s on your wedding day. Unless you happen to be marrying Prince Harry, you probably don’t have access to a stash of sparkle or some gorgeous diamonds. Thanks to the new jewellery rental service from Just Gems in Cults, brides can now look a million dollars without spending it!
Owner Helen Plumb, the internationally renowned gemologist and designer, explains, ‘Often brides don’t have the budget to buy real jewellery, but can’t find perfect costume pieces. We own all our own stock so we can offer a great selection of magnificent jewellery for hire, from classic diamond necklaces and earrings, to stunning opals, pearls and striking coloured stones. Designs range from the romantic Belle Époque era to exquisitely simple and modern pieces, so there’s something to suit every bride.
The rental fee is just 15% of the retail price of the jewellery, and hires are for a week. There’s also a 20% refundable deposit. Think of it as a ‘something borrowed’ that’ll never make you blue.
In time, Helen plans to extend the rental service to black tie events, as well as working with brides to create bespoke pieces for hire. If you want to keep your jewellery, Just Gems will discount the price by the rental fee, making it a perfect anniversary gift, or heirloom.
When she’s not travelling the world sourcing exquisite gems for her shop, Helen works with clients to create bespoke designs, such as engagement rings and special gifts. ‘My experience, qualifications and reputation within the international gem trade means I can buy special stones much closer to their source, so my selling prices are often keener than the price many high street retail jewellers buy at!’ To view the rental collection or discuss bespoke jewellery, please contact Helen for an appointment.
