Marlborough Jewellers was established in 1776, an incredible 240 years ago. What would the store have looked like & what would it have sold?
Over the many years Marlborough Jewellers has seen so many changes, in 2000 the owner Mrs Deacon, decided it was time to retire and sell the business. The Warr family approached Mrs Deacon upon learning of the news of her retirement and shortly became the new owners.
Whilst retaining the name of Marlborough Jewellers, the business is now one of 10 jewellery stores operated by David Christopher Ltd. Three of the ten jewellery stores retain their original branding, those being Marlborough Jewellers, W. Lloyd Attree in Dartmouth, and Oswin & Co. in Hereford. The remaining seven stores are branded under the David Christopher name.
Today the shop features a wonderful array of pre-owned jewellery, Rolex & Cartier watches.You can also find wedding and engagement rings, birthday & christening gifts for those special occasions. Marlborough Jewellers also offers a wide range of services including watch and clock repairs and with an on-site goldsmith. They are able to offer in-house jewellery repairs along with a jewellery cleaning service.
