Saunders & Pughe is an independent contemporary jewellery retailer specialising in handmade modern jewellery. Established in 1994 we design and make our own collections on the premises. We also showcase a variety of other precious jewellery from other leading British and European designers. Joint owners Marianne Saunders and goldsmith Robert Pughe head a team of dedicated staff.
”Our aim is to produce high quality, creative designs in silver and gold. Specialists in platinum and fine gemstones, we also provide a unique commissioning service to create bespoke jewellery.”

A Busy Year
Big changes in 2016! After 16 years of business we decided it was the right time to fully re-fit the shop. Our doors closed in August for one week to enable us to carry out the necessary alterations. We also took this opportunity to re-brand our corporate image with new colours for our packaging, shop signs and display.
