and Where We Are...
We are a family run Jewellers, established in 1960 in the town of Cobh in County Cork, Ireland.
Cobh, pronounced 'Cove', is the harbour town of Cork. Steeped in history, it was one of the main emigration ports from Ireland. Formerly named Cove, its name was changed to Queenstown to commemorate the visit of Queen Victoria in 1900.
After Ireland gained it's independance from Britain the name reverted to the original, now in the Irish spelling of 'Cobh'.
Cobh was the last port of call for the Titanic as it undertook it's ill fated maiden voyage in April, 1912.
On 7th May, 1915 the sinking of the Lusitania occurred off the Old Head of Kinsale, some of those who died are buried in the Old Cemetery in Cobh. Survivors were helped and comforted by the tireless efforts of local townspeople.
Today Cobh is a popular tourist destination and port of call for cruise liners.
