Spread The Cost with 0% Finance

Posted on 14 Sep 07:00

Found the perfect ring but unsure if your budget will stretch that far? Perhaps it’s worth considering our interest free own art finance option. 

Diana Porter is delighted to be a member of Own Art. Own art is a national initiative supported by Arts Council England to make it easy and affordable for anyone and everything to buy contemporary work by providing an interest free loan. 

Own Art can provide an interest free loan from £100 up to £2,500. The loan amount can be a part-payment towards an item that costs more than £2,500. Or you can buy several lower value items at a time with a combined value of up to £2,500 or more. 

There are no set up fees and if you wish to pay the loan off early you can do this at no extra cost. Therefore you will only ever pay the original ticket price of the jewellery. The best part is that you can take your jewellery home with you straight away!
