Optimistic View

Uncertainty in the financial markets has been reflected in an increased number of people visiting Bourbon Hanby Arcade opposite Chelsea Old  Town Hall  in King’s Road on the corner of Sydney Street in London seeking alternative investments.  Few things are more tangible than antiques and jewellery that appreciate whilst being appreciated. Those of us who have acquired jewellery, especially older or bespoke pieces, through prudent purchase or inheritance have the satisfaction of knowing the comforting  security of it in our hands rather than at the mercy of changing international financial markets. The secret of success buying antiques and jewellery as an alternative investment is never to buy without advice and,  even more important, to seek something that you will love and gives you pleasure with the possibility of increasing in value. Ian Towning and his team at Bourbon Hanby Arcade provide a warm welcome to help you in your search.
