T Paterson is Perth's oldest family owned jewellers, opened in 1832, and are right in the centre of the action with their beautiful shop on the High Street. They also sell online, and browsing those gems is our new favourite hobby to fill our long nights in lockdown - they offer free postage on all orders.
"We know that lockdown is hard for everyone and by offering some sparkle and colourful jewellery we hope we can bring some joy. Our website is open as normal so you can still shop for the perfect gift - or a treat for yourself! - and we offer free postage on all orders, with next day delivery also available.
"We're also available on the phone and on Facebook, so if you're looking for a particular item that you can't see on our website, give us a call or send us a message and we'll do our very best to help."
As manufacturing jewellers, they design and create all kinds of stunning jewellery and every member of staff holds a minimum of a Jewellery Education Training certificate from The National Association of Jewellers, and many hold diplomas from the Gemological Institute of America. This makes them all expertly trained and ready to help!
T Paterson's also provide a remodelling service which transforms old family jewellery, that may be outdated and unworn, into a spectacular new, unique favourite item.
In addition to designing and remodelling, they also stock a number of renowned jewellery brands, including Sheila Fleet, Alex Monroe, Fiorelli, Coeur De Lion and Ortak. Their watch brands include Ebel, Certina, Boss, Seiko and Skagen.
"As manufacturing jewellers we design and make all kinds of precious jewellery and we have an impression selection of stock to choose from. We specialise in rare and unusual gemstones and diamonds, and we have one of the largest ranges of coloured gemstones in Scotland.
"Most of our beautiful jewellery is designed in-house and many pieces are unique. We have a huge selection of engagement rings, wedding rings, earrings, necklaces, bracelets and dress rings in stock - and so much more! We can also make you your dream piece of jewellery with our bespoke commissions and remodelling service."
"We have so many items in stock that would make perfect gifts or treats for yourself, with our prices starting at just £9.95. Pop online and have a browse - we have something for everyone!"
Name of shop and how long in Perth?
We are T. Paterson Jeweller and we have been in business since 1832 - and our shop is still in the family today!
What is your favourite item on your own website?
I love this Celtic weave ring that we do in various precious metals. It's sparkly and perfect for wearing every day.
What would be at the top of your wish list from another Perth Indie's website?
I like the Cinema Letter Board from Quince & Cook. I'd like to say it was for keeping me organised with shopping lists etc but I'd probably use it to write funny notes to my husband!
What are you missing most in lockdown?
During lockdown I'm missing interacting with people. I think everyone's feeling the same, but what's lovely about my job is that I meet a lot of interesting people every day, and I do miss it. Hopefully it won't be long, though, until we can get back to that!
Who is top of your list for a post lockdown party?
My granny and granddad are the first on my list for a post lockdown party. We're really close, and I've missed Granny's homemade soup!
