Gavin Shelley Jewellery

Gavin Shelley Jewellery creates bespoke jewellery for visitors and locals alike. The name comes from Gavin Shelley, the owner who is a jeweller and the man who makes it possible for everyone to own a small piece of hand-crafted beauty from the North-East. Gavin started as an apprentice in Newcastle-upon-Tyne in a property that now is the home of the Tyneside cinema, though he himself is from Low Fell in Gateshead, but having made Durham his home. Following his apprenticeship, he went to work for many other jewellers and learnt the art of jewellery restoration, cleaning, and developed his ability to make the fantastic jewellery. Having learnt the characteristics of each metals and materials he works with and what he could do with them, he developed his own unique style. He specialises in designing the pieces and loves to create something that is new and different. While most of his work is in silver, his skill and ability cover precious and semi-precious stones through to gold.

What also makes a trip to his jewellers particularly special is his friendly and approachable nature, making for a great combination for creating these special items that people carry with them as they live their lives. His personal stamp is Durham Cathedral, which stays on each piece he makes connecting the item back to this little shop in a Durham side alley. Going to Gavin Shelley’s Jewellery you will be able to see a fantastic range of items from rings to pendants, and earrings, it is likely that the piece you are looking to buy has been made by him. Discovering this little jeweller could be the highlight to your trip to Durham and you may go away with something that you will love for years to come.
