We buy gemstones from all over the world, ensuring that you get the best quality and prices in the meantime, we are very skilled negotiators and are more than happy to haggle over prices with dealers! All our staff have a good knowledge of stones and each has their particular favourites, Cerian and Alison are also currently studying for their gemmology diplomas.
We always have loose gems in stock for repairs and commissions and the coloured stone window is a fantastic splash of colour, there will always be some examples displayed loose, for special presents or hand made pieces of jewellery. If there is a specific stone you are looking for we can source it for you, and give you a range to choose from. Stones start from just £5, and hand made jewellery can cost as little as £40, an affordable treat or thoughtful gift.
