Taylor & Hart's Blog
Coronavirus has changed the way we live in a matter of weeks. Our bustling, busy lives have been replaced by a slow tune. Whilst we’re social distancing, some of us might find that we have the time to reconnect with our families and loved ones, and build bonds stronger than ever. While we’re living in times of uncertainty, one thing remains true–love conquers all. Times like this bring life affirming moments where people realise what they value. For some, this means making it official, and getting engaged. A quarantine can certainly be a challenging environment in which one can propose, but a determined few have certainly found a way to be creative and romantic!
This spring, we are delighted to announce our new out of home campaign, “Made by your stories” running across bus stops and train stations throughout London. Our campaign’s concept centres around our customer’s love stories, a series for our blog. Each of the couples featured have created bespoke engagement rings with Taylor & Hart and each of their stories are uniquely charming, and offer an insight into the inspiration behind their ring designs.
We’re proud to share the news of our very first workshop opening in Holborn. Due to the ongoing success and growth of the company, we have expanded between three different locations across the capital. From our original office and showroom in Bank, we’ve opened an additional office and showroom in Mayfair, as well as the brand new workshop in Holborn.
We interviewed one of our talented diamond setters, Mitko, in his studio in the heart of London’s jewellery district, Hatton Garden. From a young age in communist Bulgaria, Mitko’s talent for craftsmanship was fostered through creating miniature planes and boats in his spare time. His interest in technical work led him into the jewellery industry, moving to London in 2003 to eventually start his own business. We delve into his journey, looking at how his experiences led him to where he is today!
We are proud to announce that this year, we will be running our tube campaign “Are you wearing someone else’s engagement ring?” again throughout October & November in underground stations across London, as well as in office locations across the City of London.
