H. Samuel began offering beautifully designed jewelry to the people of England in 1862. Since then, their reach has expanded massively. Today, they have a chain of nearly 400 stores. All products clearly show upscale qualities, despite being priced somewhat low. That makes them immensely popular. The range of products is wide and includes engagement rings, cuff links, charms, bangles, personalized pieces, and more. It’s easy to see why they’ve been called the UK’s favorite high street jeweler.
The name H. Samuel refers to the founder, a woman named Harriet Samuel. Over the last 150 years, the business passed from Harriet’s sons to her grandsons. Today, the shops fall under the umbrella of their parent company, Signet Jewelers Ltd. Terry Burman is the chief executive officer. Joint revenue is said to be in excess of $3.5 billion. Signet is traded on both the New York and London Stock exchanges.
Their collections appeal greatly to those with a keen eye for beauty, but a budget that requires some restraint. Jewelery offerings include elegant classics, vintage designs, and modern designs with a whimsical flare. Pieces may be crafted in silver, yellow gold, white gold, platinum, titanium, palladium, or a range of other metals. Choose among diamonds, emeralds, rubies, or pearls. One thing remains constant across all collections; There’s very little potential for sticker shock.
As proof of the quality of their collections, their pieces have been worn by those with significant means. International model, Miranda Kerr, who hails from Australia, wears H. Samuel. Kerr can be seen in a recent issue of Vogue magazine wearing a very tasteful St. Christopher pendant, which is currently available through the jeweler.
Since Samuel’s inception, they’ve received a nod of approval from the people. Along the way, they’ve not forgotten what it takes to please their customers. Change has come in the form of expanded offerings. Pieces are available in almost every style and for almost every occasion. They offer the solution for discriminating buyers who won’t sacrifice quality and style, but need to stay in budget.
