Our Story

Drakes Jewellers, Plymouth was founded in 1950 by the late Harry Hirshman. Harry's son John joined the business in 1954, taking over the reigns to become Managing Director in 1975 upon Harry's retirement. John is joined by his son Andrew, daughter Monique and Jennifer, who is the first Director outside of the family. Together they are the driving force behind the business today.

Throughout our 70 years of trading our ethos and values as a jewellers have remained the same. As a team, we are all driven by an innate passion for what we do. We are dedicated to offering all of our customer’s quality, value and a WOW factor experience.

We are proud to offer a huge collection of jewellery and watches to suit all budgets and tastes. Drakes, Plymouth is home to some of the most popular jewellery and watch brands as well as stunning diamond and gemstone jewellery.

After rebranding and relocating our Drakes store in 2014, we made the decision to divide our beautiful store into two sides. This has been done to reflect the two shopping environments we wished to create for you, our customers. Step into the left hand side of our store and you will be welcomed by a fun and lively atmosphere as you browse our Branded Boutique. Visit the right hand side of our store and you’ll find a relaxed and romantic Diamond and Bridal Lounge.

You will find our store on the upper level of Drake Circus Shopping Centre, Plymouth to the left of Next. We are so proud of our heritage within this great city and consider it a privilege to be an independent, family jewellers. Our friendly and knowledgeable team look forward to welcoming you into our store soon.
