[UPDATE 2]  Ashberry's regular telephone number has now been transfered to a new line and is back to normal. For any customers who used our temporary number to contact us during the transfer period please use the standard number from now on: 01904 679000
[UPDATE 1]  Our Swinegate shop is now closed and we are currently in the process of relocating to our new premises! Unfortunately due to an overlap in services from BT our usual telephone number (01904 679000) is in the process of transferring to a new line and is currently unavailable. While this number will be staying the same to contact Ashberry on, we have a temporary number that our customers can call until it has transferred across. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.
[The original story is below]:
We would like to inform you that we will be closing Ashberry as a high street jeweller on Saturday 11th of January, as we have decided not to renew our Swinegate lease when it expires in February.
The good news is that Ashberry will still continue, moving to the head office of our parent gemstone business, which you may be aware has been a leading supplier of gemstones to the jewellery trade for over 40 years.
Still based in York, this will enable us to return to our roots and offer our valued customers a bespoke jewellery design service focusing on the unrivalled resource of high quality loose diamonds & gemstones that our parent business specialises in.
We will maintain relations with many of our existing design houses including Henrich & Denzel, to offer bespoke work.
Helen and Sue will still be on hand to deal with your enquiries, part of a team of 12 qualified gemmologists, diamond and pearl graders, valuers and geologist, all brimming with knowledge, experience and enthusiasm to create an unrivalled source of fantastic jewellery.
To reflect this new chapter in the Ashberry story our website will undergo a redesign, where you can view our jewellery collections and the extensive range of loose diamonds and gemstones available to you. Our contact details will remain the same, either via our website, email or telephone number.
We hope you can join us again when we are ready to embark on our exciting new future,
From all at Ashberry Of York.
