Historic jewellers Percy Davies is to close for good after trading in Buckinghamshire since 1940. Starting on Saturday 4th May at 10am, a sparkling closing down sale will mark the end of a glittering era for the town; with reductions of 50 per cent on all fine jewellery including diamond rings, coloured stone pieces, gold, and silver jewellery. The sale offers the county's shoppers the ideal opportunity to shop for a special gift or bag a spring bargain.

Independent jewellery store Percy Davies is owned by seasoned professional jeweller Miles Mann (pictured below). Located in the heart of the town, the small, friendly shop has garnered a reputation for excellent quality and impeccable service; offering superb pieces from wedding and engagement rings to silver and preloved items. Miles bought the established store, Percy Davies, from the founding family over 5 years ago. The traditional jewellers has continued to be managed by a team of knowledgeable staff.

Said Miles: “I have a great team here in the store; we look after all of our customers and ensure they leave with a piece which warms their heart.”

Since it was founded at the start of World War II, the business has occupied two locations in the town, moving to Packhorse Road 20 years ago. A mainstay of Gerrards Cross, shoppers recognise Percy Davies as an important independent retailer and owner Miles is aware that his decision to close the business may come as a shock to many loyal customers.

Explained Miles: “Closing the store has not been a decision I have taken lightly. Percy Davies has an excellent reputation as the ‘go-to’ independent jewellers in the area. But as the current lease comes to an end and with staff eager to retire, it seems like an appropriate time to bow out of Gerrards Cross.

“There is a strong history at Percy Davies, with several generations of the Davies family at the helm before I bought the store. It has been a true hub of the community and a very successful business.

“We intend to go out with a fanfare! We have planned a sparkling closing down sale as a farewell to our valued customers, which will see all our beautiful jewellery reduced by 50 per cent! We look forward to seeing customers old and new during the course of the closing down sale. And we are delighted to offer shoppers the opportunity to invest in a final piece for themselves or a loved one, at a truly spectacular price.”
