Hi! I am Denise and I started this blog site.  We are jewellers in Bridgwater, Somerset, UK with a shop on the High Street as well as our online store.  I have been involved in retail for most of my life.


We have been trading from our shop, Jools in Bridgwater, Somerset, UK since 2006.  We have also had shops in Bristol and Street, Somerset.

My parents opened their first shop when I was around 3 years old gradually building up to 7 shops around Somerset.   I seemed to spend much of my childhood in the shops and was working in their shops from age 14 and continued to work for them, on and off, until my thirties, in between travelling abroad with my husband’s job and eventually opening my own jewellers when my children were still very young. 



Our aim with our website and in our shop is to bring you, our customers, the best products we can, at the price range and quality you desire.  We aim do so in an inviting, welcoming and friendly way so that every customer feels great about their interaction with us.  

We pride ourselves in giving genuine advice and offering an honest service.  We get a real kick out of our positive interactions with you, our customers, whether that is online or in the shop. 

We deeply value this relationship with our customers.  It is truly the best part of the job.

We remain as passionate and committed to these values today as we did when we started the business. 

Our aim with this Blog is to give us a platform in which we can talk freely about jewellery and watches – not just about the products we sell – but as a way we can continue the conversations that often begin in the shop.

We love chatting to our customers and  Denise gets endless ideas for blog posts based on conversations with her customers. 

Our goal is to contribute to your knowledge by keeping it informative but, hopefully, fun. We want this blog to be interesting to you and add value.

Our aim is to add value to your knowledge and interest on the topics of watches and jewellery.

The Content on our Blog

All the content on this blog is written and put together by me, Denise. 

Everything I review we either stock or I have felt, used and tried myself. I research as much as I can myself, talk  further to experts if needed in order to complete as rounded a view as possible and I’m definitely not swayed by commercial persuasion – if I don’t like something I won’t stock it or I will write about it but tell you my honest opinion. 

Ultimately these are my own opinions and you should take further advice if necessary to make an informed decision.
