Everyone is being urged to save for the future. With the UK stock market’s recent performance leaving the British benchmark FT100 index suffering its worst start to a new year since 2008, no wonder people are looking at alternative investments.
Jewellery is very much a favourite safe haven at such times. Well respected Chelsea jeweller Ian Towning reports greater interest than usual in investment pieces. “It is no surprise, ” he says “as owning quality pieces is two-fold. Quality jewellery can be appreciated whilst it appreciates in value. I am increasingly being asked for advice and can offer a wide selection of pieces from my stock at Bourbon-Hanby Arcade opposite Chelsea Old Town Hall in King’s Road, Chelsea,” Call in or telephone 020 7352 2106.
