Nuala Recommends: Obsessions Jewellers

If you haven’t yet discovered Obsessions Jewellers in Weybridge, you’re in for a real treat.

Not only does Matt Carroll design his own beautiful pieces, but if you have any old jewellery or have inherited jewellery that is sentimental but dated and you’re not sure what to do with it? – Matt’s your man! – and his prices are very affordable.

When my mother died, my sister and I inherited her jewellery. My mother had some lovely earrings, but she was always losing them and ended up with a lot of odd earrings which I was delighted to have. A couple of years ago it was my sisters 60th birthday and I really wanted to give her a gift that had sentimental value and would remind her of our parents. I took an emerald art deco style earring down to Matt and asked him if he could make a pendant from it and also if he could copy it and make a set of earrings to match. Matt did a beautiful job as you can see from the photo and my sister was blown away with her gift!

This year it was my brothers turn! Again, he was turning 60 and I wanted to repeat the offering of a sentimental gift to remind him of our parents. Once again, I asked Matt to copy another of my mothers’ earrings and make a pair of cufflinks in solid silver (see photos). Matt did an amazing job once again and my brother loved his gift.

Matt will buy old gold or silver pieces from you to go towards the cost of what you want to buy or make or transform. He also ethically sources all his stones and works hard to find you exactly what it is you are looking for.

I cannot recommend Obsessions highly enough. You’ve got to get yourself down there to have a chat with him and see for yourself how creative he is – and a lovely smiley man to boot!
