So much has happened since we first opened our doors in 1961. It's impossible to list everything that's ocurred in that time period but just some of our highlights are:
Introducing new and exciting jewellery designers and watch brands never before available in Ireland; winning local and international awards including being the first ever Irish winner in the UK & Ireland Retail Jeweller Awards; creating the Bling, Bling Schools Jewellery design competition for Cork's European Capital of Culture in 2005 and refurbishing our iconic building in Patrick street and its contribution to the revitalisation of Patrick Street as Cork's premier shopping street.
We pride ourselves on being different; we believe that true knowledge of jewellery and watches can only come from experience. Our shop is over a half a century old and has held generations of jewellers.
We offer expert, unrivalled knowledge of our trade; skilled goldsmiths and watchmakers on the premises, and excellent, old-fashioned customer service.
Our selection showcases ultra-modern pieces alongside the more traditional items, and we believe we have something to suit all tastes. Should you browse our selection and do not see something you like, please ask. We could have the perfect item stored away in our safe, or could order it in for you within a few days with no obligation to buy.
We can often source hard-to-find items such as antique stones or settings within a few weeks, and if you are looking for something completely unique, one of our skilled goldsmiths can create it for you.
In addition to jewellery and watches, we carry a range giftware such as Mont Blanc and AT Cross writing instruments, photo frames, crystal glasses, hip flasks and christening gifts. We also stock charms in silver and gold, and can make personalised designs to order.
Jewellery and giftware can be engraved on the premises, and we also offer jewellery repairs, jewellery cleaning and watch servicing in our own workshop. We are a member of the Retail Jewellers of Ireland, so you can be assured that our work is carried out to the highest standards.
However, high standards does not mean high prices, we always strive to offer the best value to our customers. Watch straps and batteries can often be fitted while-you-wait at no extra cost, and small jewellery repairs can often be done same-day.
Michel Jewellers is agent for some of the most iconic and glamorous watch and jewellery brands in the world. Come in and see for yourself in person or view our collection online.
We look forward to being part of your special moments!
