Our History

Since 1917, So Much to Give

Wallace Bishop has been owned and managed by the same family for over 100 years. We believe the success of this much-loved icon of the jewellery world can be attributed to a culture of providing highly personalised and genuinely customer-focused service. Our family's day-to-day involvement in every aspect of the business means traditional family values sit at the heart of the Wallace Bishop Group.

Tradition and Vision

One of Wallace Bishop's defining traits is old fashioned customer service: times may change but valuing our customer’s experience will never go out of fashion.

Wallace Bishop also appreciates traditional craftsmanship. Mr Bishop, and his son Stuart Bishop, are both skilled and fully qualified jewellers. Mr Bishop completed his watchmaking traineeship in 1950, and as CEO for much of the 1970s and 80s, Mr Bishop would complete all valuations and diamond buying himself. Stuart, the current CEO, was awarded the prestigious international DeBeers award for Jewellery Design in 1997.
