Kings Chandeliers & the Asprey’s Emerald Collection

Kings Chandeliers & the Asprey’s Emerald Collection – a few years ago we were approached by a professional London photographer wishing to hire/borrow some of our antique crystal chandelier drops for a photo shoot for Asprey’s. On learning it was for nature of the photo shoot we chose our finest 18th Century hand cut chandelier crystals which are not for sale but are held in our own exclusive collection used for high end photo shoots and film productions.

The antique crystal was used as a back setting for an Asprey’s Emerald Collection of fine jewellery with prices exceeding 1.1 million pounds.

The article and photographs, including an acknowledgement to King’s Chandelier Services Ltd were featured in respected Newspapers and supplements including The Financial Times
