Hilton Smythe are privileged to present to the market an independent Jewellers with over 30 years successful trading history from this unit.
The price we have placed on the business is based on the transfer of the highly desirable lease, the design and appearance of the jewellers and specific pieces of assets which will remain. The location/reputation of the jewellers is renowned across the South-east and even though we are not including the current clients accounts or designs within the sale, we identify that any new buyer will be able to capitalise on the lucrative client base who will continue to visit the unit.
Allan Christensen has been designing and producing exquisite, bespoke jewellery for over 40 years. He was born just outside Copenhagen, Denmark and moved to London in 1969. The success of his distinctive style of jewellery resulted in the Petworth store opening in 1989. The business enjoys a high percentage of repeat business from different generations of families with people looking for unique pieces to celebrate the special occasions throughout their lives. Customers include Natalia Vodianova and Lauren Fox.
The business has featured in many magazines over the years, including Homes & Gardens and the Telegraph.
Our clients offer their own unique collection of rings, necklace pendants, necklaces, bangles, cufflinks, earrings and brooches.
We advise any new owner looks to keep the emphasis of the business to the higher end of the market, the majority of serious buyers visiting the area are attracted by pieces not available in other parts of the country. Whether that be for jewellery or antiques.
Any new owner would also benefit from introducing a new website, social media presence and advertising campaign, with a specific direction to the London based customer.
Our clients are now looking to retire and would like to pass the business to someone with similar values and business focus.
We recommend an early viewing of the Jewellers to avoid disappointment.
