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.
The birthstone for May, the emerald, is a symbol of rebirth and is believed to grant the owner foresight, good fortune, and youth. Emerald, derived from the word “smaragdus,” means, quite literally, “green” in Greek.
Emerald is a variety of beryl, a mineral that grows with six sides and up to a foot in length. Emerald colour can range from light green (though there is some argument whether these very light beryls are truly emeralds) to a deep, rich green. The deeper or more green an emerald is, the more valuable it is. The rarest emerald gemstones will appear to be an intense green-blue colour.
Emerald gems are found all over the world, including Colombia, Brazil, Afghanistan, and Zambia. The availability of high-quality emerald is limited; consequently, treatments to improve clarity are performed regularly.
