It was over 185 years ago that John Rossiter opened his jewellery, watch and clock shop on Weston-super-Mare High Street and over that time our core values haven't changed. Today, still a family business, we are Weston-super-Mare's oldest retailer and proud of our rich heritage.
We've built our reputation on integrity, knowledge, and trust, which is why our customers return time and time again to enjoy the traditional values, personal touch and honesty they experience every time.
Rossiter & Sons have three established showrooms in North Somerset and Devon, where our knowledgeable and friendly staff are waiting to greet you, offering advice and help on our range of goods and services. Be it that special purchase, a repair, a valuation or just advice, we will do our best to assist. If you cannot find what you are looking for, allow us to order that special piece for you as we have long-standing relationships with craftsmen in Hatton Garden and other centres of excellence in our trade.
Above all, whether buying or browsing, enjoy looking at the quality products we have to offer and thank you for visiting Rossiter & Sons Jewellers.
Sapphire is the birthstone for those born in September. Similar to a ruby, a sapphire is a variety of corundum that adorns a deep blue colour. The name sapphire comes from the Latin word for "blue stone," sapphirus.
It is a gemstone associated with royalty and is believed to attract abundance, blessings, and gifts. It has been used to protect against negative energies, as well as calm the mind, strengthen intuition, and invite spiritual clarity.
One of the benefits of sapphires is their hardness, registering a 9 on the Mohs hardness scale (diamond is a 10). This means it's a strong and sturdy gemstone that you don't have to worry about getting scratched.
