An online jewellery store known for adding glamour to reality TV personalities has celebrated a bumper first year of trade.
Newcastle-based Ruby & Oscar has marked its first birthday by achieving £1 million turnover.
Launched in August 2018, the company focuses on handcrafted gemstone jewellery, with its products shipped to more than 20 countries worldwide.
It is also known for collaborating with celebrities from shows such as The Only Way is Essex and Love Island, and has featured in Vogue and OK! Magazine.
In just over a year, the business has appointed six new members of staff in its marketing, creative design and customer service departments.
Matt Silversides, managing director, said: “We are extremely proud of our continued growth, and celebrating our first birthday marks a fantastic achievement for the brand and our team.
“Each of our new and existing team members are experts in their own field, whether that be within the creative or technical disciplines.
“This has allowed us to unlock the potential of the brand and move the business forward as we look ahead to another successful year of trade.”
