Biography

Martin is a qualified, experienced designer goldsmith and can be commissioned to produce unique jewellery.

Martin Gotrel learnt his trade as a designer and maker of jewellery from his father. The jewellery is designed and made by Martin, which is unusual in itself as most jewellers specialise in only a single aspect of jewellery making. For instance a setter will only set the stones, a mounter will only make the ring and the finisher will do the polishing, this is the production process used by larger companies however Martin can make a piece through from design to the final piece.

When Martin creates a piece of jewellery from scratch he uses specialist suppliers of gemstones and diamonds and can match your available budget.

Born in Bourneville, Birmingham Martin moved to Alcester in the early seventies, his father John was a jewellery manufacturer operating from his workshop at home and supplying retail jewellers around the country. For several years Martin worked for his father before setting up his own shop in Chipping Campden in 1989 which became a well established business. Martin now works in the heart of the Cotswolds bringing together innovative design and impeccable craftsmanship.

With Martin’s reputation for creativity and taste for quality he is now offering a unique bespoke service.

Buying jewellery is a very personal experience and whether the piece is a one off for special occasions such as anniversaries, birthdays,  engagements or simply a treat for yourself, Martin can design and make a one off unique piece or re-model your existing pieces.
