The Winchcombe Just Gems shop, which opened in November 2017, has a beautiful display of our handmade jewellery, all with lovely coloured gemstones, diamonds or pearls. Although most of our jewellery is made to order, we have plenty of ready made items in stock. Each item of jewellery is unique and you are guaranteed to find our pieces attractive, unusual, and finely created.
The shop also has a wide selection of carefully sourced unmounted gems. If you would like to choose a loose gem in any size, shade or cut, we have a large number of suitable stones just waiting for you! Our gems are collected from personal contacts of Helen Plumb, relationships she has developed over more than twenty years of working with the international gemmological trade. Wherever possible, our stones are ethically sourced and many come from known mines in Brazil, Afghanistan, East Africa, Sri Lanka and elsewhere.
We also love pearls at Just Gems, and offer a matching service to make up earrings, bracelets, pendants or necklaces that will enhance your own pearl jewellery. We restring pearls in our workshop and can replace or repair damaged clasps. Please note that we only mount natural gemstones and restring real pearls (cultured or natural) and gemstones. We do not work with simulants.
If you want to speak with Helen Plumb, it’s a good idea to call ahead to check when she will be in the shop as she is often travelling to source new gems.
