Luxury jewellery

At Bright & Sons we take immense pride in supplying only high quality diamonds and coloured gemstones. Many of these are hand-picked individually and mounted by our expert in-house jewellers.

Accordingly, every diamond we supply that is half a carat or more is accompanied by a diamond report from a professional, independent testing laboratory.

To offer something truly out of the ordinary, we are also stockists of a fine collection of two very special stones. These include Blue John jewellery, starring a semi-precious mineral found only in the nearby county of Derbyshire and Whitby Jet, a mineraloid gemstone found locally in the historic, coastal town of Whitby, North Yorkshire.

Luxury jewellery brands found in store at Bright & Sons include Welsh gold jewellery from Clogau.  

Antique jewellery and pre-owned jewellery

Our Scarborough jewellers specialises in beautiful, high quality, coloured gemstones.  The team sources the finest rubies, sapphires, emeralds and many other interesting gemstones from around the world.

Many pieces in our collection are exclusive to the H L Brown group and not found elsewhere.

In our aim to add new and interesting pieces to our stock of pre-owned jewellery, we are also always happy to look at any pieces of antique jewellery, watches or silver you may be looking to sell.

Our History

Bright & Sons founders, Frederick and Herbert Bright established the business in 1857.  It became part of the H L Brown group of family jewellers exactly 100 years later, in 1957.
It continues to occupy the same charming original period premises in the picturesque coastal town of Scarborough, North Yorkshire.

Frederick and Herbert Bright originated from Sheffield in South Yorkshire but relocated themselves and their business to be close to the sea and recuperate from ill health.
Subsequently Bright & Sons of Scarborough then became a well-respected, knowledgeable luxury jewellers and watchmaker in the seaside town.

In 2022, the historic Scarborough jewellers underwent a full refurbishment, sympathetic to its original period features.

The range available at our store also includes the spectacular in-house designed and manufactured Harris and Leon collection of engagement rings. This collection was named after the H L Brown business founder, Harris Leon Brown.
