As many of you know, Ashberry is a spin off from our main business, R.M.Weare, one of the UK’s most prominent suppliers of loose diamonds and gemstones to the jewellery trade for over 40 years. With trade customers from the outer Hebrides right down to the South coast, life is always hectic and we’re run off our feet supplying and sourcing the finest gemstones for some of the largest names in UK jewellery.
The Ashberry shop was located in York’s Swinegate for 15 years and with our lease up for renewal we took the bold move of upping sticks and moving. Swinegate, although a nice street, had changed dramatically over the last 15 years – now it’s renowned as a place to eat rather than a place to discover a top jewellers.
We’d always wanted to bring both sides of the business – shop and gemstone dealers – under one roof, to bring stock and expertise together and provide something no other jeweller could rival. Unable to find suitable premises in the centre of York, we decided to bring Ashberry back to the gemstone office just on the outskirts of town. We’ve created a boutique design suite where we can meet customers and discuss their jewellery requirements. Here you will find familiar Ashberry faces, Sue, Helen and Faye, but also the rest of our lovely team who are all unrivalled experts in diamonds and gemstones.
We are pleased to show you our new website to support the relaunch of Ashberry. It’s a place where you can browse our creations, find inspiration, find out what we’re up to and learn more about our services. The new Ashberry is by appointment only to ensure customers receive an uninterrupted consultation.
Exclusive, but in the nicest sense of the word. We hope no one will be deterred from picking up the phone and contacting us – you know we’re a friendly team!
