It’s great when you find a company that offers something completely different to what’s available on the high street and mother and daughter run business, Irene & Jenny, is exactly that. Founder Anita Brightley-Hodges’ came up with the business idea when she wanted to incorporate her late mother-in-law’s jewellery into a piece that she could hand down to her children. Anita tells us that “at Irene & Jenny we reuse jewellery you already have and transform it into a bespoke piece that will become a treasured family heirloom”.
All you need to do is show them the pieces of jewellery you have and they will discuss with you potential designs to transform them into a totally bespoke ring. They then produce a computer illustration of several designs using your gems so that you can see what your ring will look like. Once the design is signed off it is then transformed and made into your final piece by a master jeweller.

“Nobody wants to throw jewellery away as many pieces have family memories attached to them” says Anita. “Not only that, but we are all much more aware of how we spend our wedding budget now. I wanted to give clients an opportunity to make the most of what’s been sitting in their jewellery box rather than spending thousands of pounds in a store buying something that lots of other people will have too.”
We couldn’t agree more.
