Visiting our design suite is an experience you won’t forget. You can view the finest selection of wedding bands, engagement and eternity rings, or book an appointment with our designer and maker, James Bishop, if you have a distinctive idea in mind. We specialise in handcrafted, fitted bands, diamond set and traditional designs. Anything is possible with our team of experts and on site designer, suited to fit your personal budget, taste and style.
James is happy to work with all metals, from traditional white and yellow gold, to platinum, palladium and steel. Palladium was granted precious metal status and given its hallmark in January 2010. It is a white metal that is strong; hard wearing and hypo-allergenic, like platinum, but is lighter and less costly, it is proving to be a popular choice, here at Catherine Bishop.
Within the shop, we display a selection of branded products including modern styles such as Calvin Klein through to a selection of traditional Celtic designs from Clogau Gold, which uses rare, royal, Welsh gold. We also display a wide range of the popular brand, Lovelinks, as well as its Petite and Blog ranges and also the ever-growing Calvin Klein range, whom we are sure you have heard of. Our aim is to cater for everyone’s tastes and needs, so customers will always fall in love with something in the shop.
At Catherine Bishop, we love to promote individual, unknown designers that produce beautiful, quality pieces. That’s why we have an exclusive range of designers ranging from stunning casual leather pieces from Gracie J to the gothic style of Jesa Marshall. Our own onsite designer, James Bishop, also displays a selection of jewellery, from diamonds and opals, to brushed silver pieces, James also specialises in making bespoke pieces, if you are after something extra special or unique.
We understand that when your favourite piece of jewellery becomes un-wearable or broken, it can cause devastation, because most jewellery has some sort of memory behind it. That is why our onsite repair workshop can do anything from a simple solder, right through to a specific stone set. We also have trusted specialists in other areas of the country if a very specific job needs doing. We have a local hand engraver who picks up and drops off the very next day, he specialises in small texts, computer fonts and even handwriting. Our local watchman also picks up and drops off weekly and he can do small tasks such as changing batteries, right through to replacing glass, however we also have facilities onsite to change watch batteries and watchstraps.
You can come and view our collections in a relaxed and comfortable surrounding, whilst provided with the care and knowledge to answer any questions you may have, from our expert team.
