A tribute to Pat Gibson

IMG_0887 (2) (480x640)

Pat Gibson pictured above is outside Silver Tree Jewellery when it was situated at the back of Lancaster market on Sir Simons Arcade.

Silver Tree Jewellery began its journey in Lancaster over twenty-five years ago with Patricia Gibson, initially as the only specialist silver shop in the city. Now with her son Oliver, it is the most exclusive one stop shop for discerning jewellery aficionados with  Michael Kors watches, Swarovski, Vivienne Westwood and their official partnership with Thomas Sabo.

Silver Tree Jewellery, on Sir Simons Arcade, was the one destination that the people of Lancaster bought their silver and unique gemstone jewellery from. The boutique then moved to Penny Street, Lancaster, where Pat took ownership in 1991; at this time the jewellery boutique also sold gifts and clothes.

Since Oliver Gibson, Pat's son, started in 2005 he has completely revolutionised the existing shop. With a smart business sense and forward thinking ideas the shop began its journey.

Phase 1 - This included incorporating new brands. Silver Tree held a promotion day where Carly Stenson aka Stephanie Dean from the cast of Hollyoaks unveiled the new shop - pictured below with Pat and Cookie from The Bay Radio. Also pictured is myself (Hannah), Kate, Oliver and Bekah.

Phase 2 - Creating a Thomas Sabo shop-in-shop. This redesign produced many of the Silver Tree features we still see today like the stunning 3D wallpaper.

Phase 3 - As you can tell by the previous pictures something had to be done about the lighting! So Oliver installed LED lighting throughout the shop and shop window and also introduced a wall cabinet in eye-catching red.

Phase 4 - Is nearly complete! Oliver has modernised the shop to include a new parquet wood floor and glass chandelier's. The Silver Tree Jewellery is a glow of white and sparkly treats inside and we are also anticipating the arrival of a new collection, Links of London.

Pat Gibson has given so much to Silver Tree Jewellery and Oliver over the years. She has guided the decision making and planning to make it into the successful jewellery boutique it is today.

She will be missed but definitely not forgotten! Thank you for your patience, kind words and cards in this difficult time for all at Silver Tree Jewellery.

Engaged has a nice ring to it 💍

When it comes to
Engagement Rings there is a whole lot of choice from the different
metals, designs, diamond shapes and grades. The ultimate classic design
(and my personal favourite) is the Round Brilliant-Cut Diamond
Solitaire.

I spent a whole week @giagrams in 2019 examining and grading diamonds to which I have become a little obsessed!!

The
Round Brilliant-Cut shows off the uniqueness of your natural diamond.
With 58 expertly cut facets natural light enters the top of the diamond
(the table) and bounces around the precisely cut facets to give you the
brightness, fire and sparkle of a diamond ✨🔥

💎 @giagrams spent 15 years examining how light behaves in a round brilliant cut diamond
💎 cuts are graded from Excellent to Poor
💎 the better the cut grade the more valuable the diamond

Want to know more about Diamonds, the 4 C’s and the best choice of Engagement Ring for you? Then join us next week for our @diamondroomlancaster 5th birthday celebration and let us show you more…

At Silver Tree we actively seek out unique designers that
we know our customers will love and that underpins our own ethos of
offering luxury designer jewellery at affordable prices. We also love a
small business base, that like us, gives back to the local community.

Have a peek in store and meet our new designer jewellery collection, Anna Beck.

Founder
Becky Hosmer started Anna Beck 18 years ago during a trip to Bali. This
is where she met her future business partner, Gede, an inspired local
artisan. As the brand expanded, Becky moved to Bali from Los Angeles and
started to understand the magic and beauty behind the pieces they were
creating together.

Living and working with the artisans in Bali
taught her the art of jewelry making, as well as the art of mindfulness,
love and kindness. The jewellery collections are not only always
handmade in Bali but forge partnerships that are mutually beneficial for
the local economy; donating a portion of proceeds to support non-profit
local charities 🙌

Look good and feel good in Anna Beck 🤍
