you wouldn’t think you were walking into what was once a toy shop, that is unless the toys you like to play with sparkle and ooze with fine craftsmanship.

Lumbers is arguably the finest Jewellers in Leicestershire, quite possibly one of the best in the land and a destination in itself for lovers of luxury and an appreciation of quality, not to mention a dazzling gem. Whether you visit to browse or have something set in mind like a Breitling watch you will find a warm welcome and willing team on hand. However a word of warning, if you do go in to browse you will certainly leave with a wish list – we did.


Lumbers Jewellers has a justified proud history stretching back to 1881, to when Queen Victoria sat on the throne. With a family legacy in its own right Lumbers is in its third generation headed up by the charismatic Dominic Gomersall, Lumbers Managing Director who stewards a dedicated and knowledgeable team. Dominic, the husband of Kim, a Lumbers descendant continues in the footsteps of the founder of the family business John Lumbers. The independent jewellers is an established and firm part of the face Leicester city centre and one of the County’s greatest community supporters.

You might think a jewellers is more one for the ladies, it is, but if you consider yourself a ‘proper gent’ you will find an excellent selection of cufflinks, both traditional and ultra-modern; we like the pirate skull pair by Deakin & Francis. Wallets, business cases, driving gloves, travel bags, signet rings and Montblanc fountain pens are amongst the dapper offer. Of course if you have someone special in your life, Lumbers is ideal for a special gift or even if you’re thinking about ‘popping the question’ you can take advantage of the engagement and wedding ring design room or a specialist diamond room with jewellery starting from £300 going up to £300,000, so very much something for every purse.

With an envious collection of fine jewellery and Swiss watches from some of the worlds most renowned designers from the likes of Gucci, Omega, Chopard and Breguet be sure to view the Georg Jensen silver and homewares collection who are Royal Warrant Holders to HM The Queen of Denmark. If you like bespoke then go to the Aspinal of London counter for a chic and colourful array of handmade leatherwares from handbags, gloves, cases and wallets with an in-house personalisation service, so don’t just buy a smart case, have your initials engraved onto your new purchase. Lumbers also offer repairs and valuation services, offering expert advice whether on a new commission or Granny’s old pearls.

Lumbers really is a place to find that one perfect gift, investment piece or to simply indulge. The team smile and even make you a drink the service is that good, so you should definitely pop in the next time you pass the Leicester emporium of luxury. We love Lumbers and we hope you do too.
