We offer customers a bespoke jewellery design service, where we can melt down your old gold and make it into a new unique individual piece. All hand-made jewellery is made within our fully equipped workshop in Thornbury.
Our off-the-shelf product range includes rings, necklaces and earrings.
Gems was originally a workshop established in Bristol in June 1976, offering a jewellery repair and manufacturing service to trade customers. The founder, after attending Art College, trained in a Debeers Designer workshop in St Albans then worked in Nottingham, Bideford Devon, and finally Bristol.
The business grew and after a few years the workshop had over 30 trade accounts with prestigious clients including the Goldsmith Group and H Samuels . In the mid 80‘s many of the large multiples decided to centralise and set up their own workshops in the Birmingham area forcing many small workshops including Gems to find alternative work.
Therefore, Gems decided to go retail and opened our doors to the public in the late 80’s with our first shop. We now trade from our premises in Thornbury, which opened in 1992 and is run as a partnership.
With over 40 years experience in the jewellery trade we can offer a wide range of expertise in all aspects of jewellery repairs, watch repairs and sales. We will buy gold at a fair price.

NatWest - A History
In 1968 National Provincial Bank (est.1833) and Westminster Bank (est.1836), merged as National Westminster Bank. Together these banks could trace their history back down the centuries through a lineage of prestigious constituents, dating back to the 1650s.
The announcement completely surprised the City and the public, but to both banks the advantages were apparent - the merger enhanced balance sheet strength, created opportunities to streamline the branch networks and enabled greater investment in new technology. The statutory process of integration was completed in 1969 and National Westminster Bank commenced trading on 1 January 1970, with the three-arrowheads symbol as its logo.
The new bank, with 3,600 branches, developed a wide range of new services, including the bank's first credit card, Access, in 1972, and computer-linked cash dispensers, Servicetills, in 1976. Deregulation in the 1980s, culminating in 'Big Bang' in 1986, also encouraged National Westminster Bank to enter the securities business. County Bank, the Group's merchant bank, acquired stockbroking and jobbing firms to create NatWest Investment Bank. Meanwhile, the International Banking Division looked to provide international banking services to large companies and to focus on expansion in the USA, the Far East and Europe.
In the 1980s new services were developed such as telephone banking and touch-screen share dealing to assist the government's privatisation programme. The 1980s also saw the National Westminster Home Loans established in 1980 and the Small Business Unit in 1982. The Switch debit card extended the electronic transfer of money to point of sale in 1988. In the 1990s financial services markets world-wide underwent massive change and in response the bank refocused its activities, exiting from a number of markets and adopting the title of NatWest.
In March 2000, The Royal Bank of Scotland Group completed the acquisition of NatWest in a £21 billion deal that was the largest take-over in British banking history. NatWest is now part of one of the world's largest financial services groups
Oldbury Deckers Youth Club
Oldbury Deckers Youth Club has met every Friday night for the past three decades and uses a double decker bus to keep young people entertained.
The group was launched in 1979 by Andrew Gazard and Hugh Ferguson, who during the summer of that year decided to combine the village church and chapel Sunday Schools for a holiday club.
The summer event was such a success the group continued beyond the holiday and eventually grew to include all children, not just from Oldbury but the wider area as well.
Oldbury Deckers, which attracts up to 100 pupils every week, continues to be run by volunteers.
In 2001 founder and local farmer Andrew Gazard was awarded an MBE for his services to the community.

For over 100 years we have been providing local businesses and individuals with expert legal advice.
Our ten offices are located across the Bristol, South Gloucestershire and North Somerset region and each provides the same level of specialist legal service. What that means is that wherever you are based and wherever you want to see your solicitor, you can rest assured that you will get the best person or team for the job right on your doorstep.
We don’t think you should just take our word that our teams of dedicated, specialist lawyers are some of the leading experts in the region. The reassurances given by our membership of several specialist law panels and our being one of the few firms to hold the Law Society’s Lexcel standard should help. But it’s not just about awards and standards. We are dedicated to making sure we’ve thought of the practical things that are important to you. Our local office network ensures we can keep our overheads down so we can pass that saving on to you. We use a range of technologies to ensure you always get the most up to date service and you can even start the ball rolling online for some of our services. Finally, although free parking is available at nearly all of our offices, if you can’t get in we’ll always try to arrange a home visit.
Your satisfaction depends on our not only doing an excellent legal job but also providing an excellent service. We constantly assess and review this and rely on your feedback to suggest areas for improvement. Our client charter sets out the standards we think you can expect to receive. We send out a client satisfaction questionnaire at the end of every case and all replies go directly to David Sheridan, our Managing Partner. We also welcome external feedback and our case files and procedures are regularly audited by the Legal Services Commission, the various legal services panels that we are on and the Law Society’s Lexcel mark.
