about us

Julie and Lucy at Julie Peel Jewellery of Farnham offer you a warm welcome, a personal service and unique, hand-made jewellery, sourced with love and attention for that something extra special.

Julie Peel is set in The Borough, at the heart of Farnham, offering jewellery that is unique, stylish and affordable.

'Being an independent jeweller allows me to take the time personally to source stones from all around the world. With these we make our own jewellery, or commission work from a variety of craftsmen. So we can offer a truly diverse range, and now, we have added a NEW bespoke ring design service. We can make almost any style of ring your heart may desire, from simple engagement rings through to elaborate gem encrusted dress rings, and everything in between. We can even take your old unwearable jewellery and turn it into a gorgeous new ring which you will love and treasure.'


About Julie Peel Jewellery

Originally, I started Zigzag Jewels in 1998 and, with Lucy Ellor, opened our Farnham shop in The Borough in 2004. But for some time now I have wanted to put my own name on the business, and this year we decided that it was time to make the change. So, we have renamed the shop 'Julie Peel' and given it a bit of a facelift.

 

I still travel the world, sourcing all the jewellery myself. We create our own designs, as well as buying from individual designer-makers. Our jewellery is all UK hallmarked - either sterling silver, gold, platinum or palladium - and our gemstone jewellery is all handmade, from real gemstones. We offer a really unusual selection to suit everyone's pocket.

The team includes qualified young jewellers, with national awards for craftsmanship and design, and Lucy is a fully qualified member of the Gemmological Association of Great Britain. All our staff love jewellery and have customer service at the top of their list of priorities.


Jewellery For Every Occasion

We are constantly adding new things to our range so that you will always find a something for every occasion; birthday, anniversary, weddings, bridesmaid gifts, mother of the bride, special occasions, or just because you like it!


Bespoke Jewellery Service

We have a huge selection of pearls and gemstones and make all our own gemstone beaded necklaces with matching bracelets and earrings. We can make special occasion necklaces and earrings to order - this is perfect for a wedding as you can get wedding jewellery; necklaces, pearls, bracelets and matching earrings hand made to order to match your colour scheme and all within your budget!

And of course, there is our NEW bespoke ring design service, where we can make any ring in any stone, whether it be engagement or eternity rings with Diamonds, Rubies, Emerald and Sapphires, or something unusual like Tsavorite, Tanzanite or Peridot.


Free Advice Is Just A Phone Call Away

We are firm believers in excellent, quality customer service, and always go out of our way to ensure our customers get the best care and advice. For this reason we have a great team on hand to offer their experience and advice free of charge. Simply call us on 01252 763044 - we are sure to come up with some excellent suggestions.

In June 2014, said about Julie Peel

I have spent months collecting photos of rings on Pinterest, but was still struggling to decide what I exactly wanted when it came to designing a ring as a birthday gift from my parents. All I knew was that I wanted a 1920s style Art Deco ring, as I love the period & the rings are so beautiful. I searched online for people who designed bespoke jewellery & after a long search I kept coming back to Julie who luckily for me was just down the road. When I had an appointment with Julie she went through the whole process step by step & broke it down so it didn't seem as overwhelming. I still didn't know exactly what stone I wanted or style, so Julie created many designs for me with different colour stones so I could see what the ring would look like. Julie sent me many designs more then once & took a lot of time to help me finally decide exactly what I wanted. The detail I could go into was amazing and she really tried to design the perfect ring for me & succeeded. The result was the most beautiful Sapphire double halo ring that I can not stop staring at! Julie kindly made sure I could have my ring for my birthday even though their was a bit of a rush which I really appreciated. She helped designing a ring turn from a minefield to a pleasure & I am so pleased with the result which I will certainly treasure forever. I can't wait until I have another excuse to design one!

I had recently moved to Farnham and didn't know much of the area, but noticed Julie Peel Jewellers on the main street. I wandered in and met Julie, who, coincidently, had just begun designing and manufacturing bespoke jewellery! The service was wonderful from start to finish. Julie was excited and enthusiastic about re-vamping my old rings into something special for my engagement. She drew up a series of designs with meticulous detail and was able to show me computer generated images of how the finished piece would look. Every detail was considered with the utmost professionalism. Although I knew the ring was being made, Robin collected it once complete. The first time I saw the finished ring was when he was on bended knee in the middle of the Hampton Court Maze on October 1st 2011! It really was stunning. I have had so many compliments since, and when I tell people how it was made, some have even shed a few tears! The ring is not only beautifully designed, it also has such huge sentimental value, something that a shop-bought ring could never match.

Myself being someone who knows nothing about jewellery I found that the layout, range of products, and more importantly the service was impeccable. From the moment I step in to other more main stream jewellers I immediately feel intimidated and pressured into buying something too expensive, however this was not the case at Julie Peel, where the service was friendly, informative and most of all helpful where others tend to be patronising. I know that jewellery is not always the answer when buying presents, but for those future special occasions, I know that I will be returning to Julie Peel.

You are always treated with courtesy and care. The staff could not be more helpful. The products are always fresh and there is a wide variety of price. When I was raising money for the local hospice in my role as Waverley Mayor, they donated a necklace for the auction, when I was seeking only a reduction in price. The shop is well-kept and an asset to the street-scene in the town. I really cannot praise this business highly enough.

The selection of totally inspirational, original and beautiful pieces of jewellery. There's something to suit every budget no matter how big or small. The staff are welcoming and extremely helpful, offering suggestions and advice and making sure that every piece you purchase is lovingly wrapped. I started buying from Julie Peel 5 years ago and now have several pieces myself and always go there for gifts for friends and family. I'm never disappointed by their selection.

In February 2011, said about Julie Peel

I have had a passion for gemstones since I was first taken to the Geological Museum in South Kensington when I was about 7 years old - a very long time ago. I get the feeling that the girls who run Julie Peel share that passion - for the beautiful and unusual. It's nice not to feel like a jewellery geek if we are talking about how lovely a spinel can be. If I'm looking for a particular present I always find something just right. And the temptations when I am just browsing, and admiring, are sometimes just irrestible. I love their settings, their use of colour and the imaginative combinations they put together. It's a joy to go in there.

Hi, I love lots of things about Julie Peel so I'm going to make a list: 1) Very helpful and lovely people when you go into the Farnham branch that don't mind me faffing about and taking my time 2) I love the different styles and designs on offer - diversity is the key 3) I love getting emails from you showing me your latest offers and newest products 4) I love the fact that I don't have to spend a fortune to treat myself to something sparkly but I can if I want to as well Keep sharing the love

Julie Peel have a unique range of silver jewellery that is great for gifts or for yourself. I have a lovely birthstone necklace and whenever I wear it I always receive lots of fab compliments because it is so striking. I like the fact that they are experts on gemstones and can offer real insight into what you are buying compared with the high street chains.

I love Zigzag - it is the only jewellery shop that has different, affordable jewellery with friendly, helpful staff. There is something for every taste and every budget. It's a great place for gifts - the packaging is beautiful and you are offered free giftwrapping. I would highly recommend it.

The design of zigzag jewellery is individual, the line is graceful in its simplicity and can compliment both classic and modern fashion clothes. My husband knows he is safe to choose me a present from zigzag. It is the first place I look for special presents. For my son's wedding, I personally chose a zigzag pendant in preference to a family piece of jewellery to compliment my outfit. It was greatly admired. Do visit Zigzag. You won't be disappointed. In fact you will probably come away with more than you planned!

I love going to the ZigZag shop in Farnham. It tempts one to go inside where it is attractively laid out. The staff are always pleasant and helpful. The jewellery is really gorgeous. When wearing ZigZag jewellery on holiday it is often admired and I'm asked where it came from. This special jewellery fills the gap between cheaper costume and the higher end jewellery which is out of my price range. The range is constantly changing and keeping up with current jewellery fashions.

If your looking for that perfect shop where you can buy a present for absolutely anyone, any age, look no further than Zigzag. You will find yourself getting lost in this amazing place for hours trying on and looking at every individual, beautiful piece before making an easy decision. Not only are the staff friendly and the prices very reasonable, the silver and semi precious stones are of the best quality, making them presents that will last forever.
