  Jeeves the Jewellers was founded in 1946, at 77 South Road, Waterloo. Named after the butler in P.G.Wodehouse's stories, whose name was synonymous with efficient service, the shop was born in a period of post-War austerity. It is said that the original owner even brought a clock in from his home to sell, as stock was so hard to come by.
 
Jeeves the Jewellers 1967
 
By 1967, Jeeves the Jewellers had grown to such an extent that bigger premises were required, and the shop moved into its new home at 131/133 South Road. The new shop stocked a range of products which is inconceivable by modern standards, including Rolex and Omega watches, Hummel, Beswick and Cappo Di Monte figurines, and Viners and Oneida cutlery. One advert from the 1970s boasts of the shop's range of table-warmers, fondue sets and Pyrex tableware.
 
Jeeves the Jewellers 2010
 
Nowadays, we stock a more streamlined range of products, much more in keeping with twenty-first century requirements and tastes. The modern, spacious showroom concentrates on selling a superb range of diamond jewellery at unbeatable prices. The gift department constantly endeavours to refresh the stock, sourcing new and exciting lines to sit alongside the ever popular Dalvey, Royal Scot Crystal and Royal Selangor ranges.
 
We also have two on-site full-time engravers, so many gifts and presentation items can be personalised at short notice. A jewellery and watch repair service is also available as well as a valuation service by a highly qualified evaluator.
 
From small beginnings, Jeeves the Jewellers has now grown into the complete package; everything an independent retail jeweller should be for the twenty-first century.
