Vicki Tully founded VJG JEWELLERY in 1993.
Contemporary Jewellery Designers
She trained in Jewellery Design and Diamond Mounting at Sir John Cass Faculty of Art and Jewellery and Art Metal at Clerkenwell College in London.
Vicki gained invaluable experience working in London’s West End and Hatton Garden, London and The Lanes in Brighton before following her dreams to travel around the world. She returned to the UK and founded the business with the help of The Prince’s Youth Business Trust and Sussex Enterprise. It was then that the renowned VJG hallmark was registered, the initials of her maiden name and consequently the business’s name.
Trevor Sheppard joined the business in 1999 having previously qualified at Sir John Cass in London in Jewellery, Silversmithing and Allied Crafts. He had gained extensive experience in working in a variety of jewellery workshops and his expertise is the design and technical areas.
The combination of Vicki and Trevor makes for a great team; they pool their professional and practical approach in all areas of the business. The commission service that they offer is specialised and friendly with the added benefit of dealing directly with the clients; they cut out the ‘middle man’ and achieve astonishing results. The same care and expertise is used when discussing and carrying out repairs, often this work is just as demanding and recreating treasured pieces requires the same level of patience, accuracy and empathy.
They offer the design and manufacture of bespoke jewellery for all occasions including engagement, wedding, commitment and eternity rings or pieces of jewellery that are just that little bit different! Jewellery can be created in silver, gold, platinum and palladium, incorporating diamonds (including certified) and precious gemstones. They specialize in fitted engagement and wedding rings.
They also offer a full facility for jewellery repairs and renovations, remodeling, pearl and bead restringing, hand engraving, laser welding and also a Computer Aided Design including 3D (CAD) service.
At VJG Jewellery they pride themselves on their excellent customer service with a ‘no job too small’ approach and a next day delivery, wherever possible.
