saw­illiams@thek­m­ A lux­ury jewellery shop has opened at the Ash­ford De­signer Out­let, cre­at­ing seven jobs.

The Swarovski bou­tique opened at the end of June at the Kim­ber­ley Way shop­ping out­let – re­plac­ing a Car­phone Ware­house shop.

The brand, which is the world’s lead­ing pro­ducer of pre­ci­sion-cut crys­tal, sells jewellery, watches, and home and fash­ion ac­ces­sories.

Swarovski man­ag­ing di­rec­tor Hay­ley Quinn said: “We are al­ways thrilled when we get the op­por­tu­nity to ex­pand and ex­pose our brand to a new set of cus­tomers. With the col­lec­tion in-store, we feel that there is some­thing for ev­ery­one.”

Swarovski has more than 2,000 con­ces­sions and bou­tiques world­wide.

De­signer Out­let man­ager David Mad­di­son said: “We feel the open­ing will be ex­tremely pop­u­lar with shop­pers in Ash­ford, and the store adds to our grow­ing port­fo­lio of de­signer and high street brands.

“The store is the 17th open­ing since May 2012, and [de­signer out­let owner] McArthurGlen are de­lighted to have Swarovski join.”

Shops that have opened at the out­let in the past 12 months in­clude Reiss, French Con­nec­tion, Crab­tree & Eve­lyn, Links of Lon­don, Molton Brown, Aber­crom­bie and Fitch, and Ja­panese-style restau­rant Waga­mama.
