Shop receives national jewellery award

A JEWELLERY shop has won a national award for being one of the best shops in the industry.

Pearl and Queenie, in the Old Town, is also featured in The Hot 100 in Jewellery, a hall of fame for traders in the industry.

Kathy Dyton, owner of Pearl and Queenie, said: “We have already been photographed by a top Vogue photographer for the book, and are only one of eight shops included. The rest are big names such as Swarovski, Pandora, Hatton Garden Diamond Dealers, and Graffs.

“We are absolutely delighted and hope this will not only be good for business but also a credit to Hastings and other independent businesses here.”
