Annoushka jewellery - a firm favourite of the Duchess of Cambridge and actress Gwyneth Paltrow - held a drinks party at Grand Pacific, Australasia, in Manchester, to say hello to its north-west customers.

Annoushka Ducas herself attended to welcome ladies who have become fans of her brand through its concession at Harvey Nichols in Exchange Square.

Annoushka has made her fortune from jewellery. In 1990 she founded Links of London with her husband John Ayton. In 2006 the company was sold to Folli Follie for around £50 million. Annoushka stayed with the company as a consultant but left in 2007. Two years later she launched Annoushka Jewellery and the brand became a favourite with fashionable Londoners. The Duchess of Cambridge wore Annoushka jewellery almost every day of her recent tour of Australia.

Spokeswoman Katie Kennedy said: ‘The occasion was a chance for Annoushka to get to know her clients in the North better.’
