CHOHAN'S LADYPOOL ROAD

This is a long overdue post as we took these pictures back in August :) But oh well. 
I think we have professed how much we love Chohan's on Ladypool Road (Birmingham). It's our go to shop for indian/asian jewellery as they never disappoint. We have mentioned them numerously in this blog.
Now there's a few Chohan's in Birmingham (it's a complicated family thing and not all are owned by the same people, the only one we have experience with is the Ladypool Road branch-they do have a branch on Lozells Road but we have never been, and this review is concerning the Ladypool Road one).

We discovered this store just before I was getting married last year. Mum, Nigar and Nuzhah needed jewellery sets; so on a trip to Ladypool Road we walked into the shop with no expectations. I typically don't like going to Asian shops as they seem to believe it's customary to send someone to follow you and ask you a million times if they can help you. Err no thank you. This behaviour often has me walking out of stores as it's very annoying.

Well lo and behold all 3 of them walked out with their jewellery sets. 3 FEMALE managed to get their jewellery FROM ONE STORE.

Here some examples of when we wore the jewellery, you'll see we often swap and wear each others clothes and jewellery. The perks of sisterhood!

They were kind enough to let us take photos when we visited for Eid (when does an asian shop ever let you take photos? they all so scared of being "copied" when they blatantly copy the work of others themselves).

Here are some pictures of the store:

They offer fantastic customer service, all their jewellery can be customised (e.g. stones can be changed for different colours). Ignore their adverts (I hate pretty much most adverts in Asian Bridal magazines, but that's for another post), and go in-store and ask for Imran.  He's awesome at making customised bangle sets (he can work according to your budget and needs). He's nice. End of. No hard sell. Once he told us to go and come back later when his new stock was in if we weren't in a hurry. YEP.

They can be found on Facebook here where they offer a mail order service or you can go to the store on Ladypool Road, Birmingham. They appear to update their Facebook page regularly and feature just arrived items.
