"We are delighted to have won Basingstoke Business of the Year Awards 2017, it is an honour to be recognised for the job that we do. We have loved receiving the reviews and reading what our customers think of us.
Are you bright, proactive and enthusiastic? Would you consider yourself to have the maturity to be able to handle pretty much anything that walks in through the door with confidence - even if you don’t necessarily know the solution?We’re looking for someone to join our front of house team, working full time, Tuesday to Saturday as maternity cover until at least May 2016 with the potential to stay on after that.
We were voted the ‘Most Loved Jewellers in the UK’ in 2014 with a very well established customer base both locally and nationally. We are located in a stunning new premises called ‘The Cottage’ where we deliver our core business of selling top quality engagement, wedding and eternity rings, designing and making bespoke pieces with a comprehensive repairs service too.
We are delighted to announce that we have now officially moved into our new shop! It's a significantly larger premises; still on site at the Viables Craft Centre: a delightful 100 year old building known as 'The Cottage'. With a splendid retail space, Creative Design suite, workshop and lots more exciting things planned, we are really excited!
This time last year we didn't even have planning permission approved by the council, and today we are standing in our beautiful, newly refurbished Petra Jewellery shop with five times the space, sparkling displays, our very own Creative Suite and onsite Goldsmith!
Petra Jewellery has just celebrated the grand opening of its brand new shop. Well over 100 customers joined owners and staff for a glass of bubbly at the newly refurbished building and a personal tour of 'where the magic happens'.
The family business hasn’t moved far. Having been working from a small converted stable building it was time for the growing team to stretch its wings, remaining at Viables Craft Centre and moving just around the corner to The Cottage, which is around six times the size of the old shop.
The Tour de France is starting and we're super excited to have Festina watches, the official timekeeper of the tour, in stock.
Festina have sponsored the Tour de France since 1992 and are thrilled to still be the official time keepers. The Tour de France collection has been developed this year by Festina and includes a limited edition bike chronograph design.
Petra Moore, born in post war Germany in 1946 studied for her goldsmith’s apprenticeship in the 1960s in Germany. With very little money to buy materials most of the apprenticeship pieces were made from copper.
Her Mum gave her the money however to buy some 18ct yellow gold to make her final piece of jewellery with which she graduated with the highest marks on her course. High standards were something that would stand to set her and Petra Jewellery apart from the rest 50 years later too.
