On Wednesday night I went along to an event at Winsor Bishop on Trinity Street in Cambridge with the Camb Meet Up bloggers. You may remember I visited the jewellers a couple of weeks ago and images from that event appeared in my post on busting myths around accessorising with jewellery.
Winsor Bishop arrived in Cambridge just last year but this independent is something of an institution. The jewellers was actually established in 1834. Their store in Norwich sees generations of families as couples choose engagement rings, husbands buy gifts for wives on the birth of their first child, they return again for eternity rings etc the list goes on. A couple even got engaged in store! Winsor Bishop is really a part of the community there and I see that happening in Cambridge.
The range on offer is rather impressive from big names like Rolex (yes please) and Tag Heuer to new addition Halcyon Days (one of only fourteen companies to hold all three Royal Warrants) and the stunning Winsor Bishop House Collection.
I have never felt so welcome walking into a jewellers. We have all experienced jewellers who aren’t keen on letting you try anything on and have a rather aloof manner. At Winsor Bishop trying on the jewellery is actually encouraged. They want you to forget you even have the pieces on which is something that happened to many of us. The jewellery should become an extension of you.
Something To Suit All Budgets
I think many people are afraid going into such a beautiful store. They worry that everything will be out of their price range, but there is actually something to suit every budget. Pieces can be designed and stones sourced to create the item of jewellery you have in mind.
I don’t think that I have had so much fun at an event and I can’t wait to return. If you are in Cambridge and thinking of making a purchase I would definitely pop in, even if it is just for a chat. I guarantee the team will be able to help you!
This sounds like a lovely place to go and especially because it’s been around for so long!!
I think it’s always nice to support independent businesses.
