About Us

Above and Beyond Quality


At W Evans & Son Jewellers we only stock the highest quality pieces, created by highly trained Goldsmiths and set with the finest Gemstones.  Our staff hand select each piece we sell so you can buy with complete confidence.

Our Story



In 1851 the Derbyshire town of Wirksworth saw the doors of William Evans' Jewellers open for the first time. Proudly advertising William's skills as a jeweller and watchmaker, the small store became synonymous with high quality and craftsmanship. Joined by his son, Charles, who had recently completed his training as a refractionist (now known as an optician).  William eventually moved the business, now known as W Evans & Son Jewellers, to the newly built premises on Matlock's Dale Road, where it continued to thrive, becoming a reputable cornerstone of the community, with William establishing a reputation as a master watchmaker and creating time keeping instruments which can still be found in store today.

Our Promise


We promise to treat our customers with the honesty and respect they deserve. We pride ourselves on the quality of our products as we have done since the business was established in 1851. We believe in complete honestly when it comes to treated Gemstones and our staff will always be happy to answer any questions you might have relating to stone treatments and care. Unlike most retailers we make sure any colour or clarity treatment is mentioned on our listings
