Family-owned jeweller, Catherine Jones of Cambridge, has been designing and selling original pieces of jewellery since 1963.
Catherine opened her business in 1963, with a £500 legacy from an uncle who had owned a coffee farm in East Africa. Fashion boutiques were springing up everywhere, in dingy, mouldy-smelling places in derelict alleyways. She toyed with opening a retail business but said there were too many already selling clothes. When invited to a Cambridge College May ball, she couldn’t find an interesting pair of earrings to compliment her dress. ‘If I can’t,’ she thought, ‘then nobody else can’. From that gem, Catherine Jones Jewellery was created.
