Wear it and enjoy!

She wears her jewellery to muck out the horses, work in the garden and do the housework. ‘And why not?’ says Jules Wain, urging us all to shake out our jewellery boxes.

Take them out, put them on and enjoy them,” urges Jules. “Jewellery shouldn’t be left in the dark, bring it out and wear it,” she says. “And, if no longer it suits your taste, pop in and see us to have a chat about re-designing it.”

Remodelling an original piece will see the stones used, and often the gold, so the memories and sentiment from that original piece live on in something new.“Experienced staff here love the challenge of recreating pieces to your design, breathing new life into a family heirloom, or working with you to design something totally new, a one-off that nobody else will have.”

Jules relishes her job as co-director, with Donné Kidson, of the Norfolk jewellers Francis Wain, encouraged when people feel that they can call into the shops in Dereham and Kings Lynn simply to try something different.

“I really enjoy seeing people in store trying on our jewellery; we're like a treasure chest hidden away in Norfolk offering so many styles.” The family firm was launched by her father-in-law Francis Wain in the early 1960s and carried on with great passion by her husband Edward, until his death just over two years ago.

A diamond expert, he enthused Jules and their team with an appreciation and expertise of precious stones, fine jewellery, excellent craftsmanship and unending enthusiasm for encouraging people to enjoy jewellery.

Jules and Donné, with their staff team of experts are continuing the good work.

“What’s not to love about this business?” Says Jules. “We have beautiful products and we have customers coming in to mark wonderful occasions in their lives. It’s about making memories; engagements, weddings, christenings, birthdays or simply to spoil yourself or that someone special,” says Jules. “Our jewellery ranges to reflect all requirements from affordability and trends to bespoke one-off pieces.”

Taking care of jewellery, with an annual polish, check and valuation by the experts at Francis Wain, means it can be worn and appreciated as the designer intended it for generations to come.

“There’s nothing worse than losing a stone, or breaking and clasp on something of great sentimental value; so we are on hand to give great advice on any repairs that might need doing” adds Jules.

Francis Wain has an exciting range of jewellery pieces, from top-of-the-range traditional jewellery, worn by Jules- esteemed Italian designers Marco Bicego and Picchiotti, fashionable pieces such as Babettte Wasserman, and on trend leather wrap bracelets and charms offering everyday glitz and glam; plus the help for heroes and team GB collections raising money for good causes.
