Andrew Manders of Mallory, Jewellers fame is coming to speak to us about the jewellery business.

In 1898, Edward Palmer Mallory took over Routley, the jewellers that occupied No. 1 Bridge Street in the historic city of Bath. In partnership with his wife, Mrs MT Mallory, Edward ran the company that would soon forge a reputation as Bath’s premier jewellery shop.

Over ear-ringsthe years, Mallory’s reputation grew steadily under the couple’s stewardship, among both local customers and the many visitors who came to the city for its Roman baths and spectacular Georgian architecture.

More than 100 years later and the Mallory business is still very much a family affair, able to recommend and advise on the purchase of jewellery and luxury accessories.

I for one frequently press my nose against Mallory’s window admiring the beautiful sparkly things they have on display.  We’re all looking forward to hearing Andrew speak on Wednesday.
