Do you mean you want to rent jewelry from a jewelry shop for a woman
to wear during a wedding?  If so, what are you willing to pay?  Also,
do you want fine jewelry or costume jewelry?  These clarifications
would be of great assistance to a researcher.

Hi, m8evns-ga !

I've emailed a dozen or so jewellers (as well as the British
Jeweller's Association) with this query, and so far have one very
positive reply.

Wedding Service UK's jewellery section:

lists one jeweller who will hire , and though she is not based in
London, she is prepared to hire for London events.

http://wedding-service.ktb.co.uk/jewellery.htm

"Linda Macdonald Designer Jewellery offers a commissioning service for
Tiaras, Engagement and Wedding Rings. Tiaras are also available For
Hire
2 Muirend Road, Cardross, Argyll & Bute G82 5LG 
Tel: (+44) (1389) 841848 Fax: (+44) (1389) 841868 

email: info@lindamacdonaldjewellery.com "


Linda's reply to my email was:

"Yes our hire service does reach you in London! However there isn't an
outlet there for the tiaras. I will pop a brochure in the post to you,
so
you can see the range. If you could let me know what your address is I
could get that in the post today or tomorrow.

I look forward to hearing from you again.

Kind regards,

Linda"


You might want to email her directly at the address above.


I will post any other positive answers as they come in. 


If you are in the London area, Hatton Garden is the manufacturing
jewellers quarter, and it could well be worth a personal visit to look
at the products and talk to the jewellers. Or some other contacts are:

I have emailed those with email addresses.


Hitched at:

http://www.hitched.co.uk/directory/results.asp?cty=19

also has a list which I have emailed on your behalf. Of these Cool
Diamonds has a very generous returns policy for unworn jewellery, so
may well be amenable to hiring.Their contact details are:

100 Hatton Garden 
London 
ec1n8nx 
Telephone Number 0207 405 5322 
Fax Number 0207 405 5312 
Web Site http://www.cooldiamonds.co.uk 
Email Address sales@cooldiamonds.co.uk 
Description Prestigious diamond jeweller 


Note that Count Alexander's website, mentioned in the Hitched list, is
no longer responding and the email address returns the mail.


I have also heard - though I can't confirm - that some of the VERY
prestigious jewellers do hire. Asprey and Garrad - listed above - is
one such, and of course there is always Cartier:

Cartier Ltd,
175-176, New Bond St,
London W1Y 0QA
Tel: 020 7493 6962

Since your budget is high, it might well be worth a phone call.

What a lovely idea - I wish you and your fiancee all the best for your
wedding day and for your future together. I hope this has given you a
starting point.

Here is a response that may suit you, depending on your timing:

"HI Angela,

I'm afraid I used to, but the customers who hired pieces ended up
buying
my best bits...
I need to spend some time re-making the designs, but I'm currently too
busy with all the Christmas orders.

It will be a service I'll start again in the New Year, so keep me in
mind for the future.

Warm regards
Sarah

Cool Diamonds, whom I thought might be able to help, have responded to
say they do not hire.
