Timeless treasures

Explore a trove of new designs, reimagined pieces and handmade jewellery, all on the harbourside of Porthleven at the Jewellery Workshop.

Porthleven Jewellery Workshop has been busy working on new designs and with Christmas around the corner there is no better time to take a look at its beautiful wares. The shop, nestled in the heart of Porthleven overlooking the iconic harbour, not only has a range of beautiful new designs but a plethora of second-hand jewellery in stock which still looks brand new. By purchasing a piece of second-hand jewellery, you are not only helping to give the piece a new lease of life, you are also getting a lot more for your money. Choose from gold rings set with precious stones and bracelets, to bangles, earrings and much more, as a treat for yourself or the jewellery lover in your life. The talented team at Porthleven Jewellery Workshop even make opal necklaces in their workshop on-site. If you are looking for smaller stocking fillers, there are also plenty of stunning silver pieces on offer starting from as little as £5. In addition to necklaces, bracelets and earrings, browse a range of German-built watches from Bauhaus, Zeppelin and Iron Annie, including both quartz and automatic movements.

Instead of a new piece of jewellery, why not surprise a loved one by taking a treasured piece of theirs to the workshop for a repair or redesign? The business is established not only as a reputable team of jewellers with reasonable prices but also with a quick turnaround for repairs. Its speciality is to utilise customers’ old, unworn, dated gold jewellery and redesign it, converting it into something completely different and contemporary to treasure for many generations to come.

Porthleven Jewellery Workshop is run by Paul and Clair Pennington and they pride themselves on being a proper family-run business with both of their children working in the workshop and the jewellery shop itself. The future of the pieces on offer here looks bright; their son David has even decided to take on the trade and become a goldsmith. He has been producing lovely pieces for the last three years now, continuously coming up with new ideas and designs for lucky customers.
