Goldsmiths Bullring Birmingham Re-Launch

Waaaay back on the 5th July, I was fortunate to be invited to the Goldsmiths’ Relaunch in Birmingham alongside my wonderful friend Katrina. I’ve only visited Goldsmiths’ once in the past but there were previously two stores which had separate doors, though they have recently merged the shop into one larger store to allow for a better experience. I have to say, it looked absolutely stunning! And, as an added bonus, we were soon joined by the wonderful Lauren who I had met recently at the GiffGaff Spend or Save event.

When we were greeted into the store we were immediately given a glass of prosecco by the staff and there were also people with canapés wandering around the store. The store was actually still open at the time and so there were plenty of staff on hand to ask for advice on the products in store and they all seemed to have fantastic product knowledge of a variety of brands.

Me and Katrina browsed the store for a while, and admittedly I absolutely loved the Chanel watches as they had an arm to show you the watches on! I know that this may sound ridiculous, but we were discussing with staff how difficult it is to know how a watch looks without trying it on as they all look so different. I think that this is a fantastic way of seeing how products look when they’re actually on your wrist, rather than just looking at them on a typical display. My favourite watch in store was actually one of the Gucci G-Timeless watches, but unfortunately at approximately £1,000, the price point is currently a little bit out of reach for me! I also didn’t realise this but brands such as Tag Heuer now also stock smartwatches! They look surprisingly like a manual watch and so if you were looking for a more traditional styled watch, rather than an apple wrist strap, you could opt for one of these beauties, price permitting.

I have no doubt in my mind that the jewellery in store is unaffordable for many. It’s one of those stores where I always, without fail, gawk from the outside and dream of being able to afford products from there one day. That said, the level of service seems absolutely fantastic, the staff have fantastic product knowledge to help you find the ideal product for you.
In addition to watches, the store also hosts a range of jewellery including engagement and wedding rings, in addition to brands such as Fope, an incredible Italian jewellery stockist. Some of the pieces (well, all of them) were absolutely stunning and I can only dream of being able to afford them one day!

    We’ve got a Goldsmiths where I live and I love having a quick look in the window as I love the timeless classic watches like the Vivienne Westwood pieces! The SWAROVSKI rings are gorgeous as well ❤ Next time I’m in Birmingham I’ll have to pay a visit to the new shop.

    How wonderful to be invited to this! Sounds like a lovely evening. I’m not much of a Rolex person, but I’d love to see the full Gucci range!
