Our philosophy is ~ to offer the finest jewellery and silverware with impartial advice, proven knowledge and outstanding customer-focused service. And as a result, we have created a reputation for excellence; this enables us to build a relationship of trust with our loyal clientele. Also, by being a member of the well respected BADA – The British Antique Dealers’ Association; clients know they can buy with confidence.

Renowned for offering an impressive range of important period, antique and contemporary jewellery, as well as a substantial array of rare and unusual silverware, you are assured a warm and friendly welcome from Ian Eves and his dedicated team. Our aim is to make you feel relaxed and confident about your purchase, not pressured into making a decision.

Ian, who having amassed a wealth of knowledge, from being immersed in the antiques trade throughout his childhood, decided early on that jewellery was his real passion. He began his specialist career in Bond Street, at the age of seventeen. After serving his apprenticeship and gaining a solid grounding in London, Ian’s refined eye, commitment and expertise were recognised. And he was lured north, to the Midlands, to help establish a new jewellery business, going on to purchase Howards of Stratford, from the founder Dr Howard, in 1990.

The shop’s traditional appearance and principles remain, as befits its location, in the heart of Stratford-upon-Avon ~ a historic market town, set in the beautiful Warwickshire countryside and on the edge of the Cotswolds, famous as the birthplace of legendary playwright and poet William Shakespeare.

Equally passionate about looking after existing clients, as reaching out to potential new collectors, we pride ourselves on our professionalism and discretion. We are also regular exhibitors at several high profile Fine Art and Antique Fairs around the country.
