Jonathan Lambert Fine Jewellers is an award-winning jewellery designer and retailer located in Sudbury, Suffolk. With a family history in jewellery dating back to 1800, the team has access to generations of experience as well as passion and creative flair.
Jonathan Lambert is not a traditional jewellery business. It offers its own truly special bespoke custom made jewellery as well as other premium brands such as Links of London, Hot Diamonds, Diamonfire and Kit Heath, and watches from Tissot, Citizen and Eterna.
Jonathan Lambert previously had a website created nine years ago, which looked dated, was too “wordy”, visually un-engaging, and was difficult to content manage. The Mackman team worked with Jonathan Lambert and identified the need to extend their business online.
A new e-commerce website would evolve the business’ brand identity as a current, forward thinking and creative jewellers. It would widen its audience beyond the UK, allowing customers to view and buy its variety of jewellery products online. It would also better communicate their specialist bespoke jewellery design service, a unique aspect of their business.
Mackman designed and built Jonathan Lambert’s first e-commerce website which stays true to the brand’s prestigious look and reflects the stature and creativity of the business.
There was a lot of emphasis placed on developing the existing brand through continuous elegant design and lifestyle photography that was directed and taken by the Mackman design team.
The site was also built “mobile-first”, which involved designing for mobile and tablet users, and then scaling this design up for desktop users. This gives users a true responsive experience when browsing on mobile and tablet devices, which is incredibly important in today’s digital marketplace. The site was designed to create an easy and intuitive experience for online customers.
Mackman’s web developers integrated Jonathan Lambert’s chosen payment gateway which offers security to its customers who are making high value purchases online. The e-commerce site allows users to review and purchase from Jonathan Lamberts online collections of jewellery and will manage the end to end sales process from purchase to delivery and fulfilment.
In the first month of being launched, the Jonathan Lambert website achieved:
- 1,073 visitors
- 10.93% Return on Investment
- 56.10% Desktop sessions
- 22.83% Mobile sessions
- 21.06% Tablet sessions
What the clients says…
”We are delighted with our new website. The team at Mackman are a pleasure to work with and made the daunting task of developing a transactional site far easier than we imagined. They listened and took time to understand our business needs, and our audience, and created a site that reflects our values, product offer and services, communicating these in the best possible way. Their professionalism in guiding us through the process made, what could have been a very stressful experience, anything but.”

What Mackman says…
“We wanted to create a site that not only portrayed the classic and prestigious qualities of their brand, but also brought the brand right up to date. The Jonathan Lambert e-commerce site is current, forward thinking, and directly responds to the expectations that shoppers have of retailers today. Not only do we expect to shop online, but we expect to be able to view an item or product in store and go home to buy it from the comfort of our own living room.”
Bruce Burgoyne – Creative Lead, Mackman
