Providing Beautiful Jewellery Since 1968

Robert Harris started his career in the jewellery industry in 1947 at the age of 15 as an apprentice jewellery maker for Garrards. His skills were quickly acknowledged and he was recognised as a natural craftsman. Garrards were responsible for the upkeep of some of the crown jewels and in 1952 he was involved in preparing them for the Coronation. They had to be taken from one workshop to another and it was “Bob’s” responsibility to carry one of the items, alone across Soho in a brown paper bag! Later working at Kutchinksy he excelled in his work, creating many beautiful pieces and undertook some very distinguished commissions, including setting a platinum brooch with diamonds for Princess Margaret. He then made a copy in silver and marcasite for his wife Shirley, which she still has today. In 1968 he moved into retail, opening his first small shop in Rickmansworth, then in 1971 moving to the current location in the centre of the High Street. The business is now run by his son Richard and a highly experienced and knowledgeable team, some who have been with the business for many years.

Robert Harris Jewellers prides itself on its good reputation, serving the local community with its jewellery related needs, whether it’s creating a bespoke diamond ring or a replacing a watch battery. The business excels in its pre-owned market, always stocking a wide range of interesting items which present great value for money. New jewellery includes some well known brands amongst more individual designers and harder to find products.

“Our philosophy is simply to offer a friendly and genuine service, and a superb selection of high quality products and services that we consider great value. We would love to welcome you into our store or online and hope that you will become one of our happy customers!“

Frequently asked questions
Sizing details

If you purchase a ring from us, we can size it either free of charge or at cost dependant on its value. This generally takes a few days.

If you don’t know your size, you can visit us and we will take it for you. If you aren’t local, then you may find a friendly jeweller near you that will do this. Otherwise you can buy a ring sizer at a reasonable price on sites such as Amazon.

If you are buying a ring for a surprise, you can always bring a ring into us that is worn on the same finger. You could also try asking friends or family that may know, perhaps a friend could drop ring sizes into a conversation.

We can size your existing rings. The cost is dependent on how many sizes it needs to be adjusted and the type of metal.

Gift wrapping and packaging

All items are presented in a premium box.

If you would like your item gift wrapped, just ask and we will be pleased to wrap it beautifully for you.

Care instructions

Cleaning

We recommend that you always clean and polish your jewellery using professional cleaning cloths and creams, if not with a soft lint free cloth.

The best way to make your diamonds look their best and to maximise their brilliance is to gently clean them on top and from behind with a soft tooth brush using warm mildly soapy water. Rinse your jewellery well afterwards to remove any residue and dry thoroughly.

Other gemstones can react badly to soap and so should be simply wiped over with a cloth. Again a soft toothbrush with just warm clear can be used to clean them from behind.

Pearls are very delicate and have a low resistance to heat and should be wiped with a cloth.
