Pragnell unveils new workshops and showroom in Leicester
British jeweller Pragnell has opened a new showroom and state-of-the-art watch and jewellery workshops in Leicester.
Situated over two ﬂoors, the store space showcases the brand’s fine jewellery range, including one-of-a-kind pieces, and also includes spaces for the Rolex and Patek Philippe watch brands.
Featuring a central atrium skylight that ﬂoods the space with natural light, the showroom also has walls adorned with bespoke hand-painted silk de Gournay wallpaper, a striking staircase designed in-house, and an exclusive private drawing room.
It also houses two expanded workshops for Pragnell’s experienced goldsmiths and watchmakers, which have significantly increased the brand’s production capacity.
As a patron of The Prince’s Trust, Pragnell said it is proud to support the development of watch workshop technicians as part of its apprenticeship scheme. The brand currently has two Rolex certiﬁed watch technicians, with two more due to qualify in October.
Pragnell managing director Charlie Pragnell said: “This family-owned jeweller, formerly and beautifully run by the Tarratt family, has served the local community from Market Street in Leicester since 1913 and begins this new chapter 110 years later.
“With a great heritage of craftsmanship in the locality and wider area, it is here we decided to invest in our state-of-the-art expanded watch and jewellery workshops. This supports the resurgence of appreciation for human craftmanship and nature’s wonders that we are now witnessing in this country and around the world – long may it continue.”
