Happy Spring! With all those beautifully inspiring warm days round the corner we can’t help but get excited about the upcoming celebrations, especially all those amazing wedding celebrations we have been lucky enough to receive invitations to. So to get us into the spirit, and to offer our gorgeous brides to be some expert wedding tips, we have caught up with one of our favourite bridal dress designers – Catherine Deane – to talk about dresses, inspirations, planning and, of course, wedding jewelry.
With holidays just round the corner, we have decided to give you a little insight into a very Ottoman Hands Christmas and what our team gets up to this time of year (apart form lovingly packing and shipping your gorgeous gems).
We have asked each member of the team three questions to find out more bout their festive plans and jewels.
So without further a due, meet our lovely team! Read More

Yesterday marked the start of a wonderful cultural event – Museums at Night, which celebrates brilliant heritage of not only our dazzling capital, but many cities and towns across the UK. For this event, museums, galleries and heritage sites are invited to throw open their doors after hours to allow culture buffs to soak up the atmosphere and discover historical treasures in new and unexpected ways (think a calligraphy workshop at National Gallery and much more). To celebrate Museum’s at Night we have picked three amazing historical and cultural hubs in London that have a special meaning to us. Each of these magnificent cultural treasuries is not only frequented by our team, but hosts an exclusive selection of Ottoman Hands jewellery designed and handmade specifically for them.
