My husband and I are visiting St Ives next month for a week.

Does anyone have any recommendations for towns to go to that we will be able to get silver jewellery, something a little different from the run of the mill?

Many Thanks

Remember, St Ives is very much geared up to providing gubbins for holidaymakers. I am sure there are shops selling nice jewellery, but I suspect you might find better, with fairer prices in a non-resort town.

I'm really not trying to put St Ives down, as its managed to retain quite a lot of its quaintness and character, and this is certainly a good time of year to visit, but the shops are quite 'commercial' any time of the year.

Before you buy, try "Little Gems" in Penzance.

There are also a couple of unassuming little jewellers in Falmouth that can yield up an occasional special piece at a fair price.
We live in interesting times!

If you're in St Ives try the Printmakers Gallery on Tregenna Hill or Treloyan Gallery on Fore St.
Both do some unique and beautifully designed silver pieces by local jewellers.
