Diamond miller by trade, George has been in the jewellery business since leaving school – over 30 years ago. His work speaks for itself and he views his work as pieces of art, which are all unique and tailored to his customer’s tastes.
George has always wanted his own business and after carrying out some research he found the perfect place at Wood Street. He said: “Walthamstow is an up-and-coming area and the outlet viable.” This coupled with the “welcoming and friendly” attitude of the other traders sealed the deal and Gees Jewellery came about, George’s greatest achievement!
Much of the material for Gees Jewellery is sourced locally. He loves making bespoke jewellery which customers buy for a special occasion or as an investment.
George’s future plans is to have a chain of ‘Gees Jewellery’ stores, buy a Bentley and one day live in Spain. In the meantime, he loves spending time with his family, friends and playing music.
