 F.Hinds opens new store in Bath city centre

Boasting the newest developments in the F Hinds brand, the store will offer the same first class, unrivalled customer service that the company is widely known for across England and Wales.

With diamonds, jewellery, branded watches and gifts, the new Bath branch will provide a wide range of products for every age, taste and occasion, as well as popular services including jewellery and watch repairs and servicing, watch battery replacements, insurance, ‘gold for cash’, valuations and more.

Although the store is brand new, this is not the first time the family have been jewellers in Bath. F.Hinds’ history started in 1856 and they opened their first store in Bath almost a century later in 1949.  This was also on Union Street, just three doors up from the new one. The old shop closed in 1987 as it was too small and only now in 2022 has the business found a suitable new unit to trade in.

Andrew Hinds, Director and Diamond Buyer at F.Hinds, said, “We are delighted to be back in Bath after a gap of 35 years.  We had traded successfully in Bath for almost 40 years, so we are delighted to be able to return to serve the city once again.

As a family business, we pride ourselves not only on our wide range of diamonds, gold and fashion jewellery, top watch brands and other gifts, but also on the individual service we give each of our customers, many of whom become like family friends over the years.

As a national retailer, we have the buying power to offer excellent value for money, but as a qualified gemmologist, I am proud to be able to individually hand-select each of the certificated diamonds that we sell and to know that we have been able to help generations of our customers to celebrate the most special occasions in their lives.”
