The Real Thing began inauspiciously in 1982 with my wife Catherine persuading me that after having “served her time” in a traditional jeweller there was demand for jewellery made from “The Real Thing” i.e. Real semi precious gemstones without costing the Earth. No-one was making the required product so Catherine decided she would and after teaching herself how to pearl thread set about hiring tables at craft fairs and selling her “creations”.

We then expanded by visiting jewellery manufacturers in this country, Europe and the far East and buying jewellery which we considered to “different” but affordable”. The rest is history, as it were, leading to today where we have 3 well established retail shops with a loyal returning customer base.

We specialise in sourcing and retailing evocative jewellery.

We have built the business on the premise that we want our customers to feel they have purchased the perfect gift.

Our customers enjoy telling us that the presents they bought from us previously “went down well” with the recipient and what’s more they have seen the gifts being worn many times since…The Real proof of the pudding!

We offer a huge range of jewellery and gifts.

Please feel free to browse the website but if you can't find what you're looking for then don't hesitate to email us and we will send you a range of images of goods that we think will suit your purpose and budget.

We look forward to hearing from you soon.
