Astley Clarke Opens its First Standalone Store in London’s Seven Dials
British jeweller Astley Clarke has launched a bricks-and-mortar store on Monmouth Street in Seven Dials. Offering the chance for customers to step into the brand’s world for the first time, the 900sqft space has an aura of relaxed luxury: think warm wood floors, brass fittings and rich blue furnishings. The flagship is home to the brand’s first in-store collection, Honeycomb, which centres around a hexagon motif, crafted from diamonds and 14ct gold. You’ll also be able to have Astley Clarke’s lockets engraved and customised at a special personalisation desk, which uses immersive technology.

An outfit worthy of Bond himself.
