Notes to Editors
1. Founded in 1888 by watchmaker and jeweller Thomas Henry Baker, T. H. Baker has enjoyed over 120 years as a celebrated watch and jewellery company. The business was purchased at 95 High Street, Brierley Hill, which is still open today.
Over the years, further branches were opened in the Midlands until the first store outside Central England was opened in Horsham in 2001. Now with its fifth generation of family members continuing the business, T. H. Baker has stores across the UK and further developments planned.
2. Founded in 1982 as a jeweller’s shop by Mr. Per Enevoldsen, Pandora was ‘driven by quality of the highest carat’ during its beginnings in Copenhagen’s Noerrebro district. Production moved to Thailand in 1987, when Lone Frandsen was hired as a designer and the company began to focus on creating a unique jewellery brand.
In 1996, goldsmith and designer Lisbeth Larsen joined the company and, together with Lone, played a key role in defining Pandora’s style. In 1999, its ever-popular charm bracelet launched on the market and established the personal nature of Pandora jewellery.
Pandora has now grown into a global brand sold in 18 counties, having evolved from a two-man business 25 years ago to a team of 35 at its head office in Copenhagen, and 1,000 workers at Pandora Productions, its factory in Thailand.
