When Eric Nettleton bought the shop, he took it upon himself to carry on this Jewellery tradition. Mr Nettleton began by revamping, what a Jewellery and Tobacconist shop called 'Catlows Jewellers and Tobacconist'. Nettletons Jewellers underwent a major, cosmetic revamp in 1997 to become the shop that we know and love today.

Fast forward to 2003 and it was the turn for a new generation to join the family business, Mr Nettleton’s grandson and Matthew Nettleton's nephew, Joe Cuningham. Matthew Nettleton is an avid professional jeweller and took over the running of Nettletons Jewellers from his father in 1997. continuing on the family tradition, Matthew is passionate about his business and truly values each and every customer. Over the years, Matthew has acquired numerous qualifications enabling him to become the professional goldsmith he is today.
