Manufacturer files: Shetland Jewellery

“We do very traditional jewellery making here,” says Sophie Whitehead, workshop manager at Shetland Jewellery, “so the whole process is very personal, and means that the jeweller is actually getting to progress the piece themselves and get the satisfaction from doing that.”

The jewellery manufacturer was founded in 1953 by owner Jack Rae, originally as Shetland Silvercraft, who started the business on his kitchen table. Over the years the company grew and in 1971 Rae moved it to its current premises in Soundside, Weisdale.
