Crystal Chain

Distinctive, Stylish Jewellery crack

Crystal Chain is a jewellery store with a difference. There’s pieces to suit all tastes and age-groups in this stylish ground floor shop, which is located near the central escalator on the ground floor of the Regent Arcade.

Most of the collections are in sterling silver, ranging in price from £7 to £120. There’s also a stunning range of jewellery made from freshwater pearls, semi-precious gemstones from Bali and handmade crystal from London designer Jianhui whose distinctive work is frequently worn by models on the catwalks at international fashion shows.

As a child in China, Jianhui would spend his days in the mountains where he became fascinated by the colourful display of bright pink, purple and orange flowers, which were in total contrast to the grey and impoverish life that he led.When he arrived in London he was inspired by the jewellery worn by the Capital’s women and began recreating the beautiful flowers that had once captured his young imagination as elegant pieces of jewellery.

It is pieces by designers like Jianhui that makes Crystal Chain popular with students and businesswomen alike – distinctive, stylish jewellery that reflects the taste and individual style of the wearer without breaking the bank. And for a limited period only there’s 20% off contemporary men’s jewellery and D for Diamond children’s range to make way for exciting new season collections.

Crystal Chain is the ideal place to go for present inspirations – pieces are beautifully displayed in well-lit cabinets with friendly staff on hand to offer advice or assistance, and because there are only four other Crystal Chain shops in the country you can be fairly certain that the gift will not be duplicated!

The Cheltenham store was the fourth to be opened by owner ChristopherMatthews. He established the first Crystal Chain inMilton Keynes 15 years ago, followed by branches in Stratford on Avon and Solihull. As a result of the success of the Regent Arcade Crystal Chain Christopher opened his latest venture inWorcester last month which has been very well received.
