Learn About Banneya London
Welcome to the first edition of the Banneya London blog. We are pleased to share with you the story behind our business and why we set this company up. Both Nimesh, my co-founder and I, are passionate about changing the way women buy jewellery. My experience in the luxury industry has shown me the limitations facing contemporary design companies that are unsure about technology and fearful of innovation. Nimesh’s background in engineering has enabled him to capitalise on new technologies needed to put the customer at the centre of the creative journey.
A short few years after our MBA at London Business school where we met, Nimesh and I embarked on this adventure; inspiring women to create unique pieces of jewellery made to order for them. The thought was borne from a feeling of brand fatigue, from the realisation that no longer did women want to be told what to wear and how to wear it and from the understanding that technology had changed the way women shopped for ever. Being able to personalise, customise and make a piece of jewellery to order satisfied the thirst for uniqueness and originality that so many of us felt. We realised however, that most might find the creative prospect daunting nonetheless and therefore, set out to find the best of designers to create models which could be customised, personalised and made to order.
The result is Banneya London – a new type of ecommerce store showcasing the best of contemporary jewellery design, all customisable and produced to order each and every time. We only work with precious metals (18 carat gold for women’s pieces and Sterling Silver for men’s), diamonds and semi-precious stones. London’s best craftsmen produce each piece to our exacting specifications and all our pieces are independently Hallmarked.
Our customers are entrepreneurs, business women, working women, stay at home mothers… they are all women who care about the jewellery they wear. They come to us to be inspired by our careful edit or to commission a piece they have been thinking about getting made.
We believe in meeting our clients if we can and would love to meet you too. Come to visit us at our head office in Notting Hill or meet us for coffee at a place that suits you, whichever you prefer. Email me directly at email@example.com and let us inspire you.
The Banneya London blog will give you some insight about what we are doing, what is happening in the world of jewellery, who are the next big designers and we hope that you enjoy reading it as much as we enjoy writing it.
See you soon,
