Crown Jewellers is to open in the Queensgate unit vacated by Charles Bright the Jewellers at the end of last year.

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.
