The Peaky Blinders Connection


Unless you have been living on the moon for the last 5 or 6 years you will, no doubt, have heard of the BBC TV programme that goes by the name of The Peaky Blinders! If indeed, you have been 'living on the moon', and you haven't heard of it then you can read a quick overview by clicking here.

Hodgkinson the Jewellers, recently supplied some vintage jewellery for the show and we are very proud to see some of our pieces feature in this, much loved, series. We were all big fans before we were asked to help supply the show so you can just imagine how proud we are to have the slightest 'connection' with it.

We have always stocked vintage jewellery, and we have a pretty active client bank that continues to pop into our Clarkston Showroom to have a look at the most recent additions.

As a result of the success of this hit show, there has been a massive rise in sales of pocket watches, vintage necklaces,earrings, pocket watches, chains and indeed ... flat caps!

If you are looking to recreate that Peaky Blinders look or you just like that vintage style then here are some hints for you to finish off 2019 and going into 2020.


The Pocketwatch. 
The Pocket Watch is the ultimate accessory for your three-piece suit, white shirt and leather boots.
Worn on a chain attached to the buttonhole of a waistcoat, these antique timepieces are now in back in demand. 


The Pearl Earrings and Necklace
Pearls will always retain that classic, elegant and now 'Vintage' look about them. Regardless of the era, your pearl items were created; they will always lift your overall look with grace and simplicity. You might be looking for that Peaky Blinders look ... but you will also have just made yourself look ten times more sophisticated : )


The Leather Boots, and The Cloche Hat

Obviously, we don't sell these items ... but they will be a must for you if you want to achieve your best 'peaky' look. There are many vintage clothes shops throughout Glasgow, and a quick online search will point you in the right direction.

We design and create brand new pieces of jewellery ... but we also have our vintage and and refurbush jewellery on the site. You can view some interesting pieces by clicking here.


The Signet Ring

Have a look at Arthur and his signet ring. This is the kind of jewellery that we supplied to the show. Get in touch or pop into our Clarkston showroom to have a look at our Peaky Blinders Signet Rings. 


The Gold Family

We also quite like the fact that there is a new family on the block. The Gold Family. : ) Should be interesting to see what the next season brings us. 

Look out for Aberama Gold's gold signet ring ( supplied by ourselves) . Heavily embossed with you have guessed it... "GOLD"
