Established in the heart of Yorkshire over four decades ago and housing an unparalleled selection of some of the most iconic and internationally recognised branded jewellery and watches from around the globe, Bradleys has become one of the go to luxury independent jewellers in the North of England. We pride ourselves on our truly exceptional customer service coupled with good old fashioned family values.
Our passion for jewellery has a rich tapestry spanning back over 45 years. Starting out dealing in antiques and fine period jewellery from around Europe, Mr and Mrs Bradley rapidly expanded their business by securing quality retail outlets in the finest locations around North Yorkshire. Specialising in prestigious fine period jewellery is still very much a part of Bradleys DNA, many of our boutiques offer specialised pre-owned jewellery and watch displays.
Along with housing a fabulous collection of hand chosen pre-owned jewellery and fine Swiss timepieces, we have an impressive portfolio of our very own jewellery designs. Our first class bespoke jewellery design service gives you the opportunity to watch your jewellery being brought to life, from concept to creation.
The beauty of a Bradleys jewellery design is the ability to take inspiration from every aspect of life, from the Yorkshire Rose to the Ballet, the Lotus Flower to iconic movie star Marilyn Monroe. It is this unique approach of using outside influences that gives the Bradleys fine jewellery collections their distinctive look. From engagement rings to wedding bands, each piece of jewellery is a miniature work of art.
The seed of a jewellery collection can come in various forms. Sometimes it is the diamond or gemstone that dictates the design, other times a theme manifests itself over the space of a few months. Once the concept of a jewellery collection is born, sketches and mood boards are developed. From here, the jewellery design further evolves through the use of CAD (Computer Aided Design).
Celebrating the best of British design and craftsmanship, each piece of jewellery from our own collections shown on this website has been handcrafted in limited numbers with meticulous attention to detail. All our jewellery is designed, cast, assembled and lovingly hand finished in Britain. The majority of our hallmarks are assayed in Sheffield and are marked with the Yorkshire rose. Our team of artisans combine time tested techniques with cutting edge technology in the pursuit of creating tomorrow’s vintage. It is this marriage between the new and the old that gives each piece of jewellery its unique charm and personality. British excellence lies at the heart of Bradleys.
With our in-house team of jewellery designers, gemologists, GIA graduated diamond graders and pearl threaders, we are proud to offer a great wealth of knowledge and experience. Our master craftsman has over 30 years’ experience and our watch repairers have been trained by some of the most respected Swiss watch houses. For clients in need of getting their jewellery and watches valued for insurance, we arrange regular valuation days with an Independent Registered Valuer.
