Born in 1984 with its debut store opening in the Piazza, an old fruit and vegetable market in Covent Garden, London. It acquired the spot next to Monsoon, which had a small area of accessories but was always selling out. The idea of a standalone accessory concept was born. It was a move inspired by Peter Simon’s trip to Les Halles, Paris. While he was wandering around the area, he discovered a small selection of stores selling fashion jewellery that customers could pick up, touch and try on while browsing – a relatively unseen concept in London in the early eighties. From the very beginning, Accessorize was an Aladdin’s cave of artfully arranged displays, tables and stands, so customers could interact with products in a brand new way. Having made its mark as a one-stop shop for vibrant and fashion-forward accessories across all categories, the first Accessorize was quickly followed by stores in London’s Carnaby Street, Norwich and Manchester. Since then, it has built on its home-grown success with around 900 stores worldwide.

Amy Ring Jewellery
Amy Ring first started to explore silver-work when she was 18 at an evening class with her late grandmother and from there on, through everything else she has done, it remained a passion of hers. She now works with Silver Clay to immortalise memories and occasions in pieces of unique and beautiful jewellery. If your looking to keep the memory of your child's first drawing, your first pet, your babies hand print or your wedding day safe, then encapsulating the moment in silver is the perfect way to keep it close to your heart. All pieces from Amy Ring Jewellery are made by hand from fine silver. Once you have decided which piece of Jewellery you would like your memory to kept in, you can order the piece from their shop and if you need one, they will send you a memory pack for you to take your prints. This includes a non toxic ink-less print kit and an inscription form which you will use to take a hand, foot or paw print and send back to Amy using the pre-paid envelope. If you want a drawing to be used instead of a print, then she will ask for you to either send the original to her or a scan of the drawing. Once Amy has received your prints or drawing and the inscription form, she will let you know she has received them and that the quality is good enough, then the magic happens - Amy will get to work making your unique piece of jewellery and once it's perfect, she will package up your silver memory and send it out to you.
