About Us

Taking over the family business in 2002, Trevor turned Fitzgerald Jewellers in a leading designer of fine jewellery, specialising in the creation of highly complex one-off pieces. The shop is situated by Canterbury Cathedral, where you can find many pieces designed and handcrafted by our skilled goldsmith Melanie Bushrod.

Passionate about design and craftsmanship and offering what we believe to be the best in bespoke design, hand making skills and customer experience, our goldsmith Melanie's approach to design is as individual as our customers.  All traditional craftsmanship, Melanie’s hand draws each piece of jewellery, transforming rough sketches into technical drawings which outline the specific measurements and elements of even the smallest detail. Whilst this process may be time consuming and meticulous, it also ensures that Fitzgerald jewellery has its own unique sensibility and refinement.

Alongside this, Fitzgerald Jewellers is also selling leading brands such as Marco Bicego, Bjorg, Mondaine, Tissot and many more.
