Premium jeweller and diamond specialist Chisholm Hunter is set to open its £8m jewellery store on Edinburgh’s Princes Street in early December.

At the foot of Frederick Street, the new opening will become the largest luxury jewellery retail space in the UK, bringing 20 jobs to the capital and a range of exclusive brands for Scotland.

Glasgow founded Chisholm Hunter has stores across Scotland and England, in locations such as London, Chester, Glasgow and Edinburgh. The opening of its flagship store will bring approximately 10,000 square foot of retail space to Princes Street over three floors and the stunning building will feature a unique champagne bar and designated Swiss timepiece room.

The store will be the only Scottish jeweller to stock the prestigious, global watch brands Breguet, Blancpain and Vacheron Constantin – each founded in the 1700s and inspired by history, art and chronological technology.

Harry Brown, Chisholm Hunter CEO, said; “The opening of our flagship store is a significant moment for the business. The Princes Street boutique will be the centrepiece of our portfolio.

“We put the customer at the heart of our business and we invest and grow our stores in response to demand.  Our customers are looking for a luxury, personalised shopping experience, with help from members of staff who are experts in their fields – and Princes Street will provide just that with its Bond Street feel.  We’re looking forward to continuing to grow and strengthen our business between now and the end of 2017.”

Along with its impressive collection of premium diamond jewellery, the new store will sell luxury watches from the most prestigious Swiss brands.

CH Holdings, with almost 300 staff, was founded by Harry Brown in Glasgow. Originally trained as a gemmologist, Harry continues to run the company as CEO. The jeweller has been named Multiple Jewellery Retailer of the Year for three consecutive years and was also included in the London Stock Exchange 1000 Companies to Inspire Britain List.

Chisholm Hunter achieved revenues of £33 million (excluding VAT) at the end of the last financial year, almost 12% growth on the previous year.

The company continuously looks for expansion opportunities in both the existing estate and new locations.
