Yorkshire-based luxury jewellers Berry’s celebrates 125th anniversary year

Luxury jewellers, Berry’s, is celebrating a milestone year in 2022 as it reaches its 125th year in the business.

With nine stores and boutiques across the UK – six of which are based in Yorkshire – and an e-commerce website, Berry’s is nationally known for the quality of its jewellery and exceptional customer service, with a particular expertise in fine watches and diamonds.

During its milestone 125th anniversary, the family-owned, independent jewellers will launch an exclusive jewellery collection in the spring, alongside a number of store openings, events and partnerships, as well as in-store activations across the country. In addition, Berry’s is working with its world-renowned watch brands to unveil a range of limited edition watches, available through the anniversary year only.

A widely respected name in the industry, Berry’s has long-established roots in Yorkshire, with Mr Abe Berens opening the first store in Scarborough in 1897. Further stores in Southport and Leeds then followed, and since then the family business has enjoyed huge national success.

Berens’ daughter Jeanne took over the business after her father, and it then passed to her son-in-law Jeffrey Walton. Jeffrey, along with his son Simon and grandson Oliver, have been continuing to expand and develop the business ever since: the company now boasts eight stores in Leeds, Newcastle, York, Hull, Nottingham and Windsor, with plans for further growth this year.

As well as partnerships with major watch and jewellery designers, including dedicated Omega and Breitling boutiques, Berry’s own jewellery portfolio features stylish and elegant designs by its team of specialists.

Simon Walton, Managing Director of Berry’s, commented on the milestone: “Berry’s 125th Anniversary is a time for celebration! We’re very excited to unveil our brand-new exclusive Anniversary Collection in the spring, with limited pieces available to purchase from our boutiques. The new collection has been crafted by our expert team of specialist designers to herald a five-generation family business.

“We’re planning a full year of celebrations with our employees, stakeholders and clients to mark this very important milestone in our heritage.”
