A Gift from Us to You.....
Here at Anne Morgan HQ we know just how strange and discombobulating these times are.
Nobody seems to know whether they should be enjoying the enforced lockdown, feeling guilty because they do, or feel frustrated that they can't come and go as they please. We are forever indebted to our wonderful key workers, and yet we find it hard to understand how the heck we got to this point!
So, as ever, we are here to help soothe you with beautiful things. Shiny, sparkly glittery things. And this time it's free! This one is on us!
All it requires is your ability to enjoy learning something new, an hour of your time and the ability to enjoy a good old G&T.....
This is our way of saying *thank you* to all the wonderful customers who have supported us over the past few years, and continue to do so in these weird, and also sometimes wonderful, times. Read on to find out what’s in store for you, and how you can access your freebie.
In addition we are also offering TWO special discount codes to use to spend at the gallery - which of course can be redeemed on postal purchases too!
So how would you feel about a free taster session, learning all about the art of understanding gemstones. Or should we say....gemmology?!
Gemmology is the science of gemstones, and has its roots in mineralogy, geology, physics, chemistry and biology. It's the identification of gemstones, the confirmation of authenticity, the evaluation of quality, the detection of origin, and the disclosure of treatment. We are offering you a free mini lesson in this discipline taught by the fantastically experienced gemologist Kerry Gregory, who will help to apply your new found knowledge to your existing gem-laden jewellery, and any new beautiful sparkly things you may decide to buy in future.
Read on to find out more about Kerry, when it will be held, and how to register your interest.

What you can Expect from the Session...
Here's what Kerry says:
"Who loves drinking gin and looking at beautiful gemstones?
If the answer is you, this is your opportunity to unwind and enjoy something just for you”
Grab yourself a gin and tonic, and you will be guided through a scintillating evening of gin and gemstones. Gemstones do phenomenal things, and so do gins if you know which ones to pick up. Expert gemmologist Kerry Gregory will show you phenomenal gemstones and pair these with matching gins.
Gemstones that change colour, reflect an ethereal star and glow under UV lights, along with gins that do the same. You will hear about 3 ideal gins to match with gems, and you'll learn about unusual, beautiful, amazing samples. Just because we can't go out, doesn't mean we can’t enjoy the things that make us happy.
Join us to learn more about the fascinating world of gemmology.
The session will be delivered via the magic of Zoom at 7.30pm on the evening of Friday May 14th, and all you need is a bag full of enthusiasm, and an icy G&T!
And of course don't forget that at the end we’ll be giving out TWO discount codes that you can use on all 'off the shelf' pieces at the gallery, which are also redeemable on postal purchases so can be used immediately!
/To register your place, email us to confirm you'd like to participate at email@example.com.
/We’ll then confirm your place by return of email, and provide you with a 'Zoom' link to simply click to join the session, on the above date and time.
/We are also taking questions to put to Kerry during the session, so please add anything you'd like to ask to your confirmation of attendance email.
Absolutely no knowledge of gems is required - this is a fun, upbeat way of passing the time and learning about beautiful things - and if you love the session, then we’ll be looking to run more in future, so we would also love to get your feedback afterward.
We can't wait to see you there!
Stay safe, stay home
