We didn't go there this time but you can also buy online under the name of Shipton & co. The staff in the shop are very friendly and helpful and will let you see anything that you would like to see up close.

Jewellers like they used to be. Lovely shop, quaint. Lots of choice and a wide price range, something for everyone. The staff are so welcoming and friendly. Husband bought me a lovely pair of earings which staff wrapped up very nicely.
