When I received a gorgeous necklace from T. H. Baker this weekend, I was curious to know more about the history that I would soon be wearing around my neck.
Beginning in Wiltshire, in 1888, with Thomas Henry Baker, the business began with a core principal that remains to this day. “Good value, and a quality of service unmatched by its rivals”. The dedication of Thomas Henry Baker, and his children (and currently great, great grandchildren) that followed him into the family business, have ensured that the company has continued to succeed, over a century past it’s inception.
Now in their 128th year of business, T. H. Baker still believe in good value and great service, which is apparent in the packaging of the necklace I received.
It arrived within two days of confirmation, although next day delivery is available, and I could hardly wait to have a peek inside.
The presentation box was sturdy, yet sophisticated, making it ideal as a gift straight out of the envelope, without additional wrapping or presentation, or just a fancy gift for yourself (I definitely went for the second option…). T. H Baker’s pride in their business is clear, from not only the quality of their products, but how they present them.
Inside the presentation box, the cushioning is soft, adding to a high class feel of the packaging, but more importantly, the necklace is displayed in all it’s beauty. There is a dainty sterling silver 16-18 inch extender chain, which allows for security of the pendant, with a glamorous touch. One of my greatest fears when wearing a necklace is the chain breaking and the necklace being lost, but the chain feels very secure, without being restrictive.
The main event, of course, is the pendant. A beguiling design, that will give a boost of timeless elegance to any outfit. The cubic zirconia adds sparkle to the painstaking detail of the pendant. It is clear that great thought and care went into the design of the pendant, making it the perfect eye catching accessory.
The necklace is light and graceful, and is perfect for complimenting both day wear and night wear, and overall, I’m very pleased with it, as it is the kind of necklace that can be used for any occasion, and will receive a lot of use, and that, as far as I’m concerned, is the true meaning of good value.
