Our Ethos

Franses is a fourth generation family jewellers specialising in fine diamond jewellery. Being a traditional, family run business, we pride ourselves in providing a personal service to our clientele regardless of their enquiry.

With life being so fast-paced and predominantly 'online', we enjoy having a sociable, relaxing boutique where a young couple can come and browse our selection of James' engagement rings or designer wedding rings. Making that moment in their lives memorable and a pleasure is what we specialise in at Franses.

With the majority of our customers being repeat clientele, it just goes to show that there is still a high demand for personal service when it comes to making a special purchase. Whether it is a small birthday gift or a ruby wedding anniversary present, a beautifully gift-wrapped Franses box never disappoints.

Our ethos may be traditional, with our courteous service and hand-written receipts, however our jewellery designs have something to suit every palate. James Franses hand makes a selection of pieces from the ultra-modern, minimalistic to the timeless, traditional designs which are equally desirable.

From time to time, or on request, his artistic eccentricity is defined in designs like the 'Manhattan' ring, 'The Kiss' and more recently 'The Wave', inspired by his love of the ocean as a keen windsurfer and paddleboarder.

Whether looking for inspiration or celebrating an important time in your lives, come and visit our Franses boutique to see for yourselves why we love what we do and how we do it so well......
