Welcome to Dipples the jewellers, the only fifth generation family jewellers located in Norwich, Bury St Edmunds and Dereham.
Dipples itself is nearly 150 years old. The jewellery business was originally founded in 1878 in Woodford, Essex, by George Henry Dipple. George did not stay in Woodford for very long as by 1890 he is no longer registered as living in Woodford. Between 1888 and 1890 the business was relocated to Ipswich. The jewellery store made a final move to Norwich around 1894 and has been located in Swan Lane every since. Our second jewellery store in Dereham, Norfolk, which was opened by Rodney Ellis, Great Grandson of the founder, celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2013.
We are fiercely proud of our reputation and of our family heritage. Since 1878, Dipples the jewellers have specialised in timeless contemporary classics, fashion must-haves and opulent ornate pieces for all of life’s special occasions. We have built connections to some of the largest names in the Watch and Jewellery worlds.
We have an on-site workshop in our flagship Norwich store. Our master jeweller designs and makes many bespoke items by hand, and will source a bewildering array of gems from across the globe for you to choose from.
Step through the door of any of our branches and you’ll be warmly greeted by one of our team and encouraged to browse at your leisure…which could take sometime as we probably have the largest choice of jewellery, watches, diamonds and collectables anywhere in East Anglia.
Dipples for Watches from Bremont, Longines, Baume & Mercier, Seiko, Certina, Rado, Gucci, Skagen, Citizen, Rotary, Elliot Brown and Mondaine.
Dipples for Jewellery by Hearts on Fire Diamonds, Hot Diamonds, Fope, coloured gemstones and Georg Jensen.

We also have a selection of Clocks by Comitti and Seiko.
We’re all about understanding the emotions behind purchases, as this helps us find the perfect jewellery gift for our clients, whether that’s a diamond engagement ring that takes your breath away, a beautiful gemstones for someone special or an elegant watch simply because you deserve it. This is the reason why the majority of our business comes through referrals from our existing customers.
The above is just a sample of the watch, diamond and jewellery brands that we have available in both our Norwich and Dereham jewellery stores. If you wish to visit either of our stores, please check with the individual location prior to visiting as some items are not available in every location.
