OUR FAMILY HISTORY

Jewellery making and repairs have been the back-bone of our family for three generations. With workshops in Bournemouth and Birmingham we have expanded over the years on the back of a reputation for quality, craftsmanship and exceptional customer service. We are proud to say that 75% of our business comes from long standing regular clients and we have grown year on year, even during the recent economic down turn.

Creating a retail outlet to display our fine jewellery was an obvious development for the family and Winchester was the perfect location. We are proud to be part of the established jewellery quarter, bringing our own style of fine jewellery, silver and pearls and, of course, our unique, ever changing range of antique and pre-owned pieces to the high street (well just off the high street anyway).

Donna Laine is now established and we have built an enviable reputation as a local shop that is home to a wonderful, diverse and exciting collection of fine jewellery and silver. There are designs to suit every taste, with excellence of workmanship and quality at the heart of everything we make and sell.

Donna Laine is a gem of an old shop, where customers are free to look around without feeling under pressure. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable and will offer you the same level of service whether you are having a battery fitted, or designing a bespoke engagement ring. There’s something for everyone and every occasion.

Although you will find a great selection of Silver and Pearls and we are Winchesters exclusive supplier of Trollbeads, we specialise in fine jewellery that incorporates diamonds and coloured gemstones and, of course, fabulous and unique pieces of antique and pre-owned jewellery. If new and unique jewellery is your cup of tea our manufacturing expertise and in-house design service means we can design and make any piece, or re-work existing jewellery in our own workshop. New pieces made in the traditional way, guaranteeing the best quality at the best price. Design something from scratch, or bring your old jewellery and re-design it to be wearable today and give it a new lease of life. Drop in the shop to discuss your requirements, or call Donna on 01962 860202.

The Flying Emerald
"The best story so far was a very nervous customer hand picking his Emerald for his future Fiancee, he held the tweezers too hard the Emerald pinged out of this hand hit the ceiling and landed in  Donna's Hat on the top shelf, no mean feat when you  see how high then ceiling's are in the shop. Needless to say that was the stone he wanted, we made the ring and she said 'YES'." and she loved the story of the flying Emerald!
