Our Story

Proud to be an independent jeweller, Lance James was first established in 1997.  With almost 25 years’ experience of creating bespoke jewellery and as a member of the National Association of Jewellers, we adhere to the highest industry standards. 

      “As the UK’s leading Jewellery Association, our mission is to increase confidence in the UK consumer’s purchase of jewellery; through the integrity, professionalism, governance, representation, education, training and creativity of our members.”

After 25 years of trading on the high street, Lance James the Jewellers has now migrated to trade online only.

Specialising in the wedding ring and engagement ring sectors, we stock the exclusive wedding ring designers, Furrer Jacot from Switzerland and Ungar & Ungar from Germany, alongside other cutting edge collections.  Exhibiting at Wedding Exhibitions in Essex and Suffolk, we also offer face-to-face appointments within the Chelmsford area, with our expert Goldsmith.

In addition to the bespoke side of the business, we offer exclusive designer brands.  At Lance James, you can expect to find the latest exciting collections from the likes of Chlobo, Daisy London, Unique Jewellery and many more, providing the perfect piece for every occasion.


The Lance James journey began with Lance’s love of jewellery from an early age but his dreams were only realised when he was accepted to study Goldsmithing at KIAD (the Kent Institute of Art & Design) as a mature student.  After working as a jeweller in Soho, the first Lance James store was opened in Brentwood in 1997. 

Whilst striving to provide our customers with high quality products and professional jewellery services, we pride ourselves on being approachable and accessible by all our customers.
