THRILLED TO BE BACK!
We have returned to our usual opening hours of:
Friday 10am-4pm, and
Our private appointments run outside of these hours - please call or email us to arrange a mutually convenient time.
We also continue to offer delivery for stock and collection and delivery for repairs; consulations via email and WhatsAspp (video or chat) to discuss not only repairs and modifications to and the remodelling of existing jewellery but also, as ever, commissions.
Take advantage of our contact-free collection and delivery service to CM9 and CM0 postcodes without charge, by arrangement, or postal service to those further afield for repairs, commissions and purchases made.
We will shortly be launching our online store. Meanwhile, keep well, look after each other and enjoy looking through some of the services we are proud to offer.
