A Scottish family owned jewellery businesses has given its showroom a “major makeover” to mark the 35th anniversary of its opening.
The Tom Coll Jewellery family firm is celebrating its milestone birthday with a refurbishment of its fourth floor showroom and workshop premises in Glasgow’s Argyll Arcade Chambers which is part of the city’s “renowned” jewellery quarter.
The business has invested £200,000 in the makeover project which took four months and now includes additional product display areas, a new-look larger work bench layout, a new staff kitchen and a refurbished back office area.
Tom Coll Jewellery was founded by Tom Coll and his son Steven back in 1984. Both had long careers in the jewellery business working for other firms before taking the decision to go it alone.
Although Tom has since retired the family connection remains strong with managing director, Steven and his two sons Kieran and Jonathan working in the six-strong team.
Steven said: “We felt that the 35th birthday was a good reason to give our showroom and our workshop a new look and the response to both has been hugely positive.
“Customers arriving for a first visit always say they’re well impressed by the place and say it’s amazing that we’re tucked away on the fourth floor. We like to think of ourselves as a bit of a hidden secret.”
He added: “We’re finding more customers are seeking bespoke designs for engagement, wedding and civil partnership rings and we’re well placed to deliver when they turn to us for advice.
“With events like engagements and weddings people want something different and unique to their lives.”
