After the week full of festivities, we caught up with Tom to find out exactly how and where it all started...

Tom French -

I find it hard to believe that ten years ago, i took possession of the keys to a children's clothes shop on Hermitage Parade in Ascot. Over the next three weeks i transformed the interior into a simply decorated and furnished Jewellery shop of my own, it was very exciting and daunting at the same time. I had help from friends in the industry with stock and advice, and on the 12th May we opened to a flurry of champagne glasses, friends and a few sales!!

Over the next few years i designed many new and rare jewellery pieces and we exceeded our expectations. As we became more busy we took on staff, Caroline, who now runs her own company Pink and Brown, was our first. We later employed Emma and Paivi who helped enormously with the day to day running of the shop. We developed the designs side of the business more and promoted our Gemstone Jewellery and in the depths of the recession decided to emply a manager full time to push the business forward. Zillah joined and brought with her Lucy, her assistant manager from her previous employer. This took the business forward for three years before Zillah headed off around the world and April took over in March 2014. April is very organised and has built on Zillah's foundations and launched us in the digital age with a focused social media campaign and the development of our new website.

The new Tom French Website will expand to show all of our bespoke stock and most of our Diamond and precious Gemstone stock, along with Neal French Sculptures, Silver gifts and Deakin & Francis cufflinks. All of our Michel Herbelin watches and London Road Jewellery will also be listed along with Jewellery award winner Sarah Jordan's Silver collection. Visitors will also be able to read our blogs and have access to our Twitter and our Facebook Page.
