The concept of opening a bespoke jewellers in Ipswich was the
idea of Christopher Hardman and David Berridge. Both worked together at Croydons in Ipswich, forming a close working relationship. Together with David’s wife Kirsten and Christopher’s wife Angela, Berridges opened its doors in October 1994 and has today remained one of the finest jewellers in the region.
David and Kirsten have now retired from the business, although they are still involved ‘behind the scenes’ The day to day running
of the business is now in the capable hands of Christopher and Angela, with a team that has many years of experience in the industry.
In 2007 we were invited to join the Company of Master Jewellers, an independent buying group which enables us to increase our purchasing power and to go on great educational buying trips!
We are very proud at Berridges to be able to say that all our jewellery is personally selected, we are a family business and likewise we like to deal with fellow family businesses. Most of
the jewellery we have in stock today has strong family origins. Shoeffel, Thomas Sabo, Georg Jensen, Breuning and Buchwald
to name a few.
