Our History

Where it all began

Our first shop opened in Rhyl, North Wales in the sixties. The shop was run by Dave and Joan Powell, who utilised an old bank and turned it into a beautiful Antique Jewellers.

Relocation

In 1972, the shop was relocated from Rhyl, just 5 miles down the road to the small seaside town of Prestatyn.

Our Second Shop

In 2004, we decided to take on the city life and open our second shop in the centre of the ancient Roman city of Chester. I was joined by my son Will to help launch the new shop, taking over the previously owned premises of GH Brown & Sons.

A New Venture

To compliment our Antique & Period Jewellery store, we decided to open a second store in Chester. The Contemporary shop is situated on an adjacent row, providing a design-led modern experience.
