Jonathan Lambert Bespoke Jewellers, which already has a shop in Sudbury, has now opened in Lavenham High Street after forming a partnership with Kate Denton Fine Art, based at Lavenham Hall Gallery on the edge of the village.

Shoppers can now browse a collection of sculptures and artwork from a number of exhibitors alongside Jonathan Lambert’s jewellery offering, in a boutique which was formerly the home of the Wildlife Gallery.

Yasmin Lambert of Jonathan Lambert said: “We have been looking for somewhere in Lavenham for quite a while and when these premises came up, and we found a suitable partner in Kate Denton Fine Art, it was the perfect fit. This was a great opportunity for us to expand the business and offer more for our customers.”

She the said the new premises in Lavenham would compliment the shop in Sudbury by offering more bespoke jewellery.

“We have a lovely shop in Sudbury and we are proud to have been there for 14 years,” she added. “But our business has changed considerably in the seven years I have been here. We now do more and more bespoke jewellery, but we felt Lavenham was a perfect environment for that.”

Anthony Faulkner, owner of Lavenham Hall Gallery and partner in the new venture, said: “Our gallery on the edge of the village is open by appointment and we have occasional shows. But we have found a lot of people visit the village and don’t know our wonderful gallery and gardens are there.

“We wanted a window in the centre of Lavenham and we also hope this type of business will also encourage more people to come and spend time in the village.”
