For over 200 years, British jewelers Boodles have designed and sold luxury rings, earrings, necklaces and other fine items. The company's history began in 1798, when the first shop was opened in the coastal city of Liverpool. The success of the first location entailed the nationwide expansion of Boodles during the 20th century, with further shops opening in Chester, Manchester and London. Over its extensive history, Boodles has created a number of coveted jewelry collections, including 'Raindance, 'Ashoka', 'Blossom', 'Love Letters' and the 'Knot'. The 'Brilliance' ring, a classic solitaire diamond ring, is a popular choice for engagement; other popular engagement rings include the 'Harmony' and the 'Kiss'. As well as producing their own line of 'Blossom' ladies watches, Boodles is a retailer of renowned Swiss watchmaker, Patek Philippe. Boodles is a firm favourite amongst British celebrities, with fans including Emma Thompson, Cheryl and Victoria Beckham.
