Hamilton & Inches has urged anyone who has bespoke items created by its craftspeople during the company’s 155 year history to come forward and be part of the extensive Celebrating Our Craft exhibition which will be on display from March 2021.
The jewellers have created special pieces for a wide array of clients including the Scottish Rugby Union and Glenrothes distillery, which have been designed and handcrafted in the workshops situated above its showroom on George Street.
The upcoming exhibition will not only celebrate old artefacts and past projects, but the “talent of the team who have helped to mark many a memorable moment”.
The Edinburgh-based jewellers, which has held a Royal Warrant for over 120 years – is currently working to carefully renovate the 19th Century building, transforming its showroom, workshops and service department to create an “even more memorable” experience for Hamilton & Inches customers.
The group said it was committed to ensuring craftsmanship is relevant to contemporary life, adding that the exhibition will “shine a light” on the impact and reach of Hamilton & Inches and how important it is for the craft to continue throughout Scotland.
Victoria Houghton, CEO for Hamilton & Inches, said: “Now that we’re in our 155th year, it’s the perfect time to celebrate our past creations and look to the future.
“The Celebrating Our Craft exhibition will not only allow us to showcase a collection of exquisite items – but will act as an opportunity to share the incredible stories behind them with existing and new audiences.”
