Meet the team
Ruth and Martin
The co-owners of the shop. They’re husband and wife and have been working side by side since 1980.
Ruth works in the shop and Martin does all the “behind the scenes” work, such as the accounts and designing the shop’s computer software. In their spare time they love visiting theme parks.
Our longest serving member of staff, Colin has worked with us since 1993.
In 2012 Colin received a new hip after suffering constant pain for 16 years after a motorbike accident. He got some relief for a time but still has major health issues, but still manages to work a few hours a day, and also spends time at home processing and uploading the pictures for our website.
For his 10-year long service gift, Colin asked for a full-sized replica medieval sword! The 20-year gift was more practical, this time he had a Kenwood Chef food mixer as he’s now into baking - we all look forward to the yummy bread, cakes and biscuits he brings in for us to try.

The best thing she has noticed while being in the jewellery trade for all her working life, is the fact that shopping habbits have changed in the way where women no longer need someone to gift them jewellery and they will now happily treat themselves.
Recently she got a lively little pup, a pomptese named Max, who she spends her spare time training and chasing around the house to keep him out of trouble!
