A life in jewellery started for the young John Baldwin in the swinging mid 1960s when, as an art student, he was headhunted from college in Loughborough and propelled into London’s Mayfair to work alongside famous jeweller to the stars Ernest Blyth.
It was a grounding that set the young jeweller on the road to success and 40 years after opening his first shop he is still just as passionate about his profession today.
A little over a decade ago, John set up shop in Devon’s own jewel, Tavistock, quickly earning a reputation for his talent and customer service, while providing the kind of specialist service that attracts customers from far and wide.
Baldwin Jewellery is an expert in their field, a modern day jewellers that encompasses traditional values. They strive to offer their customers the best value and service they can, using their extensive knowledge and experience in the industry. This is what makes them special and sets them apart from most run of the mill high street jewellers. “A jewel within a jewel,” says John.
The business has two Facets. A wonderful sense of the traditional that’s no better represented than by John himself, offering an extensive collection of fine, high end diamond and gold jewellery, lovingly hand crafted using traditional jewellery skills and services. and a contemporary side that showpieces the latest designs and trends created by the premier brands and designers of the jewellery world that John’s son James personally oversees, while also designing and crafting his very own, bespoke ranges.
