OUR

STORY

ZELLEY JEWELLERS IS A LONG ESTABLISHED FAMILY JEWELLERS NOW IN IT'S FOURTH 

GENERATION.

 

THIS SHOP IS OUR WINDOW TO THE WORLD BUT WE HAVE STRONG ROOTS AS A RETAIL PREMISES.

THE START

OVER 100 YEARS AGO FREDERICK JOHN ZELLEY OPENED A JEWELLERY SHOP IN BISHOP'S STORTFORD. THERE REMAINS A CLOSE BRANCH OF OUR FAMILY TREE STOCKING BIG NAME BRANDS.

THE 50'S

IN THE 1950'S ONE OF  FREDRICK'S TWO SONS, CLAUDE, MOVED TO NORWICH WHERE HE TOOK OVER FROM ALBERT AMES, A PROMINENT  JEWELLER WHO WAS SELLING THE BUSINESS AS HE RETIRED.

 

WE STILL SERVE CUSTOMERS AND SEE JEWELLERY ORIGINALLY BROUGHT FROM THE LOWER GOAT LANE SHOP. 

THE SHOP WAS KNOWN AS 'THE SHOP WITH THE STOCK'.

 

WE ECHO THIS TODAY.

PICTURED IS CLAUDE ZELLEY.

1982

THE FAMILY BUSINESS FINDS ITSELF IN A NEW PREMISES ON

ST. GILES STREET WHERE WE REMAIN TODAY.

THE SHOP WAS PREVIOUSLY

'W.J BODDY & SON LTD' HARDWARE STORE.

 

BEING ABLE TO PURCHASE THE BUILDING THEN HAS ALLOWED US THE FREEDOM TO DO THINGS A LITTLE DIFFERENTLY NOW. 

The 90s

BUSINESS IS TICKING ALONG NICELY AT A TIME THAT CLOCKS  FILL THE WALLS AND CABINETS.

NOW

 

YOU WOULD BE FORGIVEN FOR THINKING YOU HAVE TAKEN AS STEP BACK IN TIME.

 

 THE MAJORITY OF OUR STOCK IS NOW CONSIDERED ANTIQUE OR VINTAGE WHEN ONCE UPON A TIME WE WOULD HAVE SOLD THEM NEW.
