Nightingale to most evokes the image of a petit passerine bird known for its subtle colours though mostly for its powerful and beautiful song, the ‘night songstress’. In this case Nightingale refers to a unit of two people and a passion for jewellery, all that was needed for Nightingale to be born.
Introducing Stephen and Diane
Stephen Nightingale has engrossed himself in the jewellery industry for 46 years. His younger self tackled a job as a shop assistant in a jewellery store at the age of 16 and from there on Stephen has developed an extensive career in jewellery, tackling almost every role in the industry.
Diane Nightingale has been married to jewellery for the same length of time. In the beginning Diane would help Stephen revise for exams that would progress his career as a jeweller - “jewellery knowledge has seeped into me by default.”
“For Nightingale we have taken the best of the best from all over the world including designers, miners, craftsmen and scientists that culminate the very best in quality.”
The team here at Nightingale have a passion for precious jewellery that we want to share with you. We want to extend our knowledge of the amazing breadth and depth of products available today in hope that you find the one that is perfect for you. We are committed to searching for the best product from the most reliable suppliers and artisan jewellers to bring you choice, quality and value on any budget.
"Frustration with multiple markets that are margin driven made me start to think ‘how can I marry my love of jewellery (and my pretty good advice skills) to offer quality products at more affordable prices to more than just friends and family? I shall do it my own way I thought."
"When Stephen’s idea for the online store was born it was a given that we would pool our skills and knowledge to offer our customers a product and service that we would be pleased to receive ourselves."

We want to offer a personalised, made to measure service that cuts out the squabble.
