A HUSBAND and wife have opened a jewellery store in a town's High Street.

David Miracca and Tiffany Browne launched their venture, Miracca & Browne, on Friday to coincide with Stockbridge’s annual Christmas lights switch-on.

The couple built their business making pieces of fine jewellery for some of Britain and Europe’s most renowned jewellery houses from their headquarters in London’s Hatton Garden.

But they have been attracted to the Test Valley and to a rustic 18th century property in a prominent position in High Street.

The pair will sell Miracca & Browne's own fine jewellery collection, alongside just a few carefully chosen selections from their favourite British-based designers

Mr Miracca said: “We love Stockbridge and its independent shops; it’s one of the reasons we made the Test Valley our home. We really look forward to becoming a part of this vibrant high street and adding our own stamp."
