Well, dear reader, the answer is simple. The filming will be shot on location in the famous Jewellery Quarter of Birmingham! Several of the main streets of the Jewellery Quarter are to be transformed into a futuristic America in what is sure to be an exciting few days for those close by. Apparently, local residents and businesses have been sent letters ahead of time telling them about planned road closures and they have been assured the closures will have a minimal impact on traffic flow within the city. The film is set to star such high-profile actors as Simon Pegg, Mark Rylance and Ben Mendelsohn amongst others. Hopefully, we will see some filming in Cambridge soon. Fingers Crossed!
We here at Della Kaur obviously live and love jewellery of all types however what you may not know is that we are experts in watch repair also. We are proficient in all styles, the higher end the better! That’s why this following piece of news was so interesting to us. According to the British Retail Consortium (BRC) and KPMG Retail Sales Monitor, Jewellery and Watch sales were found to be the best performing sector in overall retail sales this July. The monthly report showed that watches and jewellery were the highest selling sector overall out of a total of 12. This is a big difference from being the fifth best performing category in the same month last year and up from fourth on its 12-month average. It is thought that a large contribution to the increase in sales was international consumers taking advantage of the weaker sterling and splashing out on some of the most expensive products.
Speaking of watches, Versace and Versus Versace has announced it will be expanding into more high street retailers this Autumn! Expect to see an increase in marketing and advertising featuring Hollywood royalty all over the place.
Another interesting piece of news is the results of the latest eRetail Sales Index show that heavy discounting has brought on the highest growth in online sales for 20 months! One can only assume that this is not the case quite so much with the jewellery market as Western investors have driven the demand for gold to a near-record high! A report from the World Gold Council (WGC) said demand was boosted by “considerable and consistent” investment demand, which reach nearly 450 tonnes as investors sought risk diversification and a safe store of value in the face of continued political, economic and social instability. As a result, the price of gold has increased by 25% which Is the strongest first-half year price gain since 1980! If you have any gold jewellery that you don’t wear anymore and would like to update it into something new then enquire with us about our recycling service. It breathes new life into pieces we thought we would never wear again.
