How is Gillian Million different?
"Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue"
Gillian Million creates unique jewellery and headdresses with a sense of vintage elegance. We recycle antique pearls and vintage jewels and pieces of jewellery bringing something old into something new. We even hide a little blue swarovski crystal into the jewellery to tick the box of "something blue"! Faux pearls, vintage glass beads and semi precious-stones are intricately wired together, creating the most beautiful and precious designs that somehow feel that you are holding onto a family heirloom, quite magical and completely unique and personal!
Fashions are of course, forever evolving and Gillian Million's collection moves with the times whilst maintaining an air of inherited beauty. The collection includes, exquisite fascinators, chic birdcage veil headdresses, jewelled headbands, replicated 1920's beaded caps, hair pins, cuffs, elegant veils, necklaces both subtle and magnificent, fur stoles, forehead jewellery and back jewellery and all the unimaginable brought to life in her breathtaking shop in Teddington which must be seen to be believed!
"It is extremely rewarding to create hair accessories that are unique and individual to each bride; we always have such a lovely time together and I am so proud to be involved in such a special part of their wedding planning. I receive the most amazing and delightful comments from each bride; I even receive communication with further orders of jewellery for 1st year wedding anniversary presents, photos of new born babies and updates on house moves and travels abroad! So wonderful and special and that is why I simply can't just sell through retailers - you just have to come and visit me and make the choosing of your accessories a truly memorable and special part of your wedding planning"!
Where is the jewellery made?
All jewellery is created in London by hand. Gillian has a loyal team of 12 people who have been working with Gillian over the last 12 years. All jewellery is made with passion and excitement and overseen by Gillian personally. Gillian has made all pieces in her shop and creates and designs all the new collections which are forever evolving as each season comes and goes.
What does Gillian Million offer to clients?
Fast and efficient delivery of more than 200 exquisite designs are available to online customers.
Clients booking bespoke appointments will benefit from the very special, unique and valued relationship which Gillian builds with her clients as she aims to exceed the expectations of every bride. Always book an appointment first as we get really busy and would hate you to have a wasted visit if we are engaged with other clients.
Gillian welcomes each client into her shop where they sit with a cup of tea, fabric swatches, magazine cuttings, sketch pads and discuss, in great detail, the accessory needs of the bride for her wedding day. They then spend time in Gillian's studio, surrounded by countless examples of Gillian's beautiful creations. The whole experience inspires creativity and designs to meet the needs of the bride whether classically understated or dramatically flamboyant. Just recently, the trend has been for the husband to call Gillian to redesign the bridal headdress into another piece of jewellery for the 1st year wedding anniversary present as a surprise - the ultimate in romance and thoughtfulness!!
Two types of service:
All orders take 8 weeks from point of order to delivery
Up to a 2 week delivery at a surcharge of 20%. Please call and arrange an agreed date for delvery.
Not one client has left empty handed, not only finding accessories for herself but bridesmaid's accessories and gifts, beautiful fascinators for the mother of the bride, veils and an additional piece of jewellery that they can't resist and simply feel they "must have" for their honeymoon!
After the Wedding
Brides like to be able to wear their headdresses again but rarely find the occasion to do so. Gillian Million offers an after wedding service where we recreate the headdress or jewellery into a more wearable piece of jewellery. For example we can convert the tiaras into chokers or necklaces or we can dismantle the jewels and recreate them into a cuff, choker, necklace or brooch to be worn time and time again in memory of the wedding day.
