Diamonds and pearls evening at Sakakini Jewellers in the Carfax SUS-150812-135213001

The was a definite shimmer and a sparkle in the Horsham Carfax on Thursday November 26 as award winning Sakakini Jewellers hosted their diamonds and pearls evening and guests enjoyed a unique preview of their Christmas range and an opportunity to handle some very special diamonds.

On arrival guests were greeted with a glass of sparkling wine, a tray of nibbles and a huge array of gorgeous pearl strings to peruse before being entertained and educated by owner and local personality, Dominic Sakakini. Representatives from Ping Ping (pearl merchants) had brought along a staggering selection of different pearls not normally available for retail for the guests to enjoy before the guests were whisked around the globe from Russia, to India, China and South Africa by a fascinating explanation of the diamond markets of the world by Dominic.

Guests were then invited to join Dominic at the back of the shop as he handed round diamonds for the guests to examine and then offered the chance to buy a £60,000 (retail price) diamond for just £22,000. Dominic has gained a reputation in the region for selling diamonds at wholesale rather than retail prices and for his passionate belief that, with returns of up to 30% a year, diamonds are one of the best forms of investment.

The evening didn’t stop there as Dominic went on to explain how he can customise new and existing pieces of jewellery so that clients get the chance to love, wear and enjoy their investment and guests handled, admired and learnt about the different diamonds and pearls.

Sakakini Jewellers hosts quarterly events at different venues and also runs The Sakakini Diamond Club which offers all members the chance to buy diamonds and jewellery at wholesale prices, take advantage of some fantastic investment opportunities as well as enjoy invitations to some of the Sakakini Jeweller’s exclusive events. The next event will be held at Denbies on Thursday February 4, 2016.
