Jeweller set to bring some sparkle to Assembly Rooms

Have your say

A LUXURY jeweller has announced £1 million plans for its first Capital store.

Jewellery firm Rox hopes to create 12 jobs when it opens its doors within a 2500ft retail space in the recently revamped Assembly Rooms.

The 18th-century Category A-listed George Street store is set to open later this month following an 18-month programme of refurbishment.

Graven Images, which was involved in the design of the Missoni Hotel, has been hired to lead the fit-out. Rox managing director Kyron Keogh, said: “We have been looking for a great space in Edinburgh for quite some time now. The locations always have to be right in retail and even more so in these economic times.

“When we saw the plans for the Assembly Rooms we really got the vision and everything seemed to slot into place for us.

“Units like this don’t come up very often and George Street is very competitive right now.
