icholas Wylde realised his dream of starting his own business in 1987, opening his first shop in Bath at 13 Northumberland Place, at the age of 24. In 2010 he opened another branch in Clifton Village which is often described as Bristol’s exclusive suburb. Both shops work well together and our name is becoming more established than ever.
It gives Nicholas enormous pride and pleasure knowing he has built up a successful business. He has always been grateful to his loyal team as he fully recognises their hard work and commitment which has contributed to the shops’ success.

Customer service and satisfaction combined with stunningly original jewellery creations you won’t find anywhere else is at the forefront of Nicholas Wylde’s business vision.
We strive to deliver that same level of dedication and excellence to every single customer, whether they are choosing their own perfect engagement diamond ring or having a piece of costume jewellery repaired.

The ‘Wylde Effect’ encompasses many aspects – from pushing the limits of artistic expression with unique bespoke commissions, to ensuring all customers have a day to remember when they enter our stores and browse our sparkling ranges.
Nicholas aims to be the ‘family jeweller’, providing an experienced service that may begin with an 18th birthday ring and then extend to engagement, wedding and anniversary tokens of love.

Nicholas Wylde promotes ethical business conduct by ensuring that all our materials originate from reliable mining companies committed to the highest standards of social and environmental responsibility. This is of high importance to us, ensuring that our jewellery creations are beautiful in every single way.
The Kimberley Process is joint governmental, industry and civil initiative designed to help stem the flow of conflict diamonds – rough diamonds used by rebel movements to finance wars against legitimate powers. . The trade in these illicit stones has fuelled decades of devastating conflicts in countries such as Angola, Cote d’Ivoire, the Democratic Republic of the Congo and Sierra Leone. The Kimberley Process Certification Scheme (KPCS) imposes extensive requirements on its members to enable them to certify shipments of rough diamonds as ‘conflict-free’. Nicholas Wylde fully supports this international association by sourcing all its gemstones including diamonds from reputable sources.
Nicholas Wylde embraces the objectives of the “No Dirty Gold” campaign, which establishes standards for the extraction of gold that retail jewellers can use for responsible mining sources.
To fully maintain our responsibility in this objective we ensure all precious metals used by us is supplied by reputable organisations that also fully support these objectives. We fully support the international standards set to ensure materials we use derive from recognised, audited and approved mining sources.

Queen of the Wylde
The search to find our very first Queen of the Wylde came to a successful conclusion when our panel of six judges (including Nicholas himself) selected a very worthy queen.
Bath resident Isabella Alexander emerged victorious and is the first to wear the crown!
The Queen was selected to wear and model our unique jewellery for our brand new brochure and the photo session yielded some spectacular shots.
So much so, that the Queen was featured on the cover of September’s edition of The Bath Magazine with accompanying article inside!
Cover star Isabella commented on the experience:
“Thank you “Wylde” team for making me look so glamorous! I have had an amazing experience seeing behind the scenes of a professional photo shoot and being dressed with beautiful, glittering jewellery. What more could a Queen ask for!”
Many thanks to Neill Meenner for the fabulous photo session and come along to meet the Queen during our September instore promotions!
Watch the short video below to discover what goes on behind the scenes of a professional photo shoot and witness the crowning of our very first Queen of the Wylde!
And watch the second video for an interview with the Queen of the Wylde with a funny compilation of outtakes and bloopers at the very end!
