Thanks to new sponsor Baker Brothers Diamonds
Baker Brothers Diamonds is a name that needs no introductions for many of our members with a rich, long and highly respected history in the heart of Bedford. Whilst many will know it as always being a part of Bedford’s town centre, they may not know that its history dates back to 1839! Family owned and run, it has been offering luxury jewellery and watches and delivering outstanding customer service for almost 185 years. Housed in one of the oldest buildings in Bedford, its listed status symbolises the family heritage and values that are still upheld today.
As one of the UK’s leading diamond specialists, Baker Brothers’ jewellery includes something for every occasion and budget ensuring that life’s special moments can be celebrated with something that will last a lifetime. Their pioneering approach to diamond buying means that every diamond used in a piece of Baker Brothers’ jewellery has been meticulously hand-picked by their professionally qualified in-house gemologists, ensuring they are of the highest possible quality at the best prices and sourced through sustainable and ethical processes.
As well as scintillating diamonds, Baker Brothers has a stunning selection of coloured gemstone and pearl jewellery as well as world-renowned jewellery brands Fope, Marco Bicego, Georg Jensen, Gucci and Shaun Leane.
This dedication to quality and customer experience has earned them the privilege of being Bedfordshire’s only Official Rolex Retailer since 2008. Alongside this prestigious watch brand, Baker Brothers is also home to Rolex’s sister brand Tudor, heritage brand Longines, as well as TAG Heuer, Tissot and Gucci.
Not only can they provide expert advice for any jewellery purchase, be it an engagement ring, a birthday gift, an anniversary or as a “just-because”, but they also have a wonderful range of non-jewellery and homeware such as cufflinks, pens, leather goods, watch storage and winders and jewellery storage solutions from brands such as Montblanc, WOLF and Deakin & Francis.
Additionally, Baker Brothers offer jewellery repair, repurposing and bespoke design services, enabling you to create unique pieces tailored to your style and budget. From creating something new from old, to using unwanted or inherited jewellery to making something completely unique from scratch, their knowledge and expertise guarantee you are in safe hands. They also offer watch repairs, servicing, valuations and insurance.
Existing customers will certainly agree with Director Rebecca’s thoughts:
“As an independent, family-run jeweller, we’re proud of the experience we offer our customers. Jewellery or watch buying is an emotional experience, usually connected to strong memories and we want to make sure that memory is looked back on fondly. All our team love a chat and will happily take time to explain things and answer customer’s questions, especially when it comes to valuations or repairs.”
Baker Brothers are members of The National Association of Jewellers, Houlden Jewellers of Excellence and the Institute of Registered Valuers. They are finalists of the 2023 UK Jewellery Awards and the NAJ Jewellery Retailer of the Year 2023 as well as being this year’s winners of the Global Wedding Award for Best Engagement & Wedding Ring Company.
As well as being absolute experts in their field, Baker Brothers also give back to the local community by contributing to events such as sponsoring our Charity Summer Ball, supporting Bedford College with their Annual Hair & Beauty plus their own Community Fund. This is a project providing support for local charities, community causes, clubs, organisations, sports teams and schools. The Baker Brothers Community Fund offers a number of opportunities across the year including school picnics, animal experiences, sponsorship and is this year launching a Community Fund Bursary.
They are also very generously providing an auction prize for the evening of the Summer Ball in the form of a exquisitely dazzling 0.30ct diamond. We will be taking bids before the evening, so do look out for details of this in the newsletter and on our Facebook page in June.
We are delighted to be working with Baker Brothers this year and thank them for their support.
