Gail McKill, owner and founder of OceanJ says….
“When I started Ocean Jewellery in 2004 in a shop in Edinburgh’s Grassmarket, I never dreamt that it would develop into the store it became on Lothian Road just 5 years later in 2009. Now, it’s 2018 and our exclusive online emporium, which was launched in May 2017, is growing into a favourite with many people and we are seeing customers returning time and time again”.
The saying goes: ‘mighty oaks from little acorns grow’ and this is certainly true for OceanJ. Initially Ocean Jewellery carried a few, select, designer jewellery brands, but as it grew, and moved to Lothian Road the collections expanded to clothes, scarves and handbags.
The name ‘OceanJ’ pays homage to the original ‘Ocean Jewellery’ and the aim is to bring some familiar brands along with designers from across Europe and beyond whose collections are simply stunning, stylish and affordable that are fresh and new. The shop was a lovely space, with lots of colour and light, and the new website has a similar feeling with an abundance of colour.
“Colour has always been important to me and being able to bring it to life makes us feel happy, free and confident, whether it’s in a piece of jewellery or a lovely new handbag, it always makes a statement. I love meeting new designers as well as keeping relationships with old ones, that’s why I’m confident that OceanJ online shopping will be an experience that the customer feels comfortable with”
