The independent shop, located in St John’s Square, had been supplying engagement rings, necklaces and bracelets to city residents since the 1920s, but Roger Aron (72) who owned the store with business partner Kevin Roberts since 1990, felt it was time to retire in 2016.

Now the unit will once again be hone to glittering jewels.

Crown Jewellers is currently advertising for tow part-time sales assistants to work three days a week when the shop opens on June 15.

Applications, with CV, should be emailed to crownjewellers@btinternet.com.
