RAPAPORT... Jewelry designer Theo Fennell has bought out the luxury brand that bears his name, with the backing of private-equity group Endless.

Theo Fennell entered administration last month after the London-based jeweler became unable to handle its costs, rescuers at professional-services firm BDO said. In an update this week, Endless said its support for Fennell’s management buyout (MBO) came from its investment arm Enact, which focuses on small and medium-sized enterprises.

Fennell (pictured) plans to take the company back to its roots on Fulham Road in London’s Chelsea district by providing bespoke pieces for customers, said Garry Wilson, executive chairman of Endless, who led the investment. The business will continue to design, create and sell high-end jewelry from its flagship Fulham Road store and will continue to operate from London’s Royal Exchange.

“Endless really understands this brilliant British business and its passionate team,” said Fennell, who founded the brand in 1982. “We will be allowed to do what we have done best and successfully for 45 years: producing wonderfully designed and beautifully made jewelry and silverware, much of it bespoke or unique for people who love originality and craftsmanship.”
