Little Miss Lemming has been dropping some massive hints that she wants a Celtic Cross for Christmas. So I'm guessing that this is what she wants.

My problem is that they are not fashionable and are not sold in any of the local jewelery shops near me. With this in mind, does anybody know of any good/safe sites to buy jewelery from?

So far I'm looking at Amazon but I'm not being inspired and I don't trust fleabay.

Clogau for the Welsh Gold sort. Not cheap though. Also try Past Times.

Made on Uist. Fabulous shop, although i've not used their web site. But thinking about it now, I've got an idea....

Have you been to this company before and would you like something from them as a gift?

I'm a bloke and not that expert in buying jewelery stuff.

SWMBO has stuff from Hebridean Jewellery and likes it. I've bought stuff in person from them on Uist but, given their location, their web site is their main route to market. I think they did have a shop in Fort William High Street at one time.

In reply to The Lemming: Thomas Sabo usually does some celtic crosses. Not cheap - but nice jewelry (mrs ferret likes it anyway)

In reply to The Lemming: Look up Celtic Leather in Ullapool.
They don't have a website but you can sort it over the phone, the couple that own it are retiring and 4 weeks ago everything was on 50% sale costing me 300 quid when I took the wife.

Not me, but Jez has. It's where he got the token ring he proposed with, until we got my "proper" engagement ring. (I actually said "maybe" when he asked, and didn't accept until a week later, in case any smart arses say if he proposed with it, it IS my engagement ring)

If you want something unique, handmade, and carved from green oak, I could have a word with my brother-in-law on Saturday when I see him.

Obviously, if she's got her heart set on something made of gold, then that's not an option...

In reply to The Lemming: try jewellerycatalogueDOTcoDOTuk, sorry ukc doesn't seem to like links, its always cheaper than anything I've ever found, good customer service and quick delivery. Not 100% sure if they'll have exactly what you want but worth a look.

Ortak might be worth a look, it's their kind of thing, mainly silver I think.
http://www.ortak.co.uk/classic.asp (and click on "crosses") - site isn't working well on my phone, but looks promising.

I can recomend very highly Sheila Fleet on Orkney, unique designs but not your standard Celtic fare, excellent service and her stuff is usually available in Jenners in Edinburgh if that's easier for you to get to :) They achieved miracles a couple of years ago in the bad winter to get some items to me for Xmas

That's a kind offer, however Miss Lemming is after a silver Celtic Cross.

Thanks for the suggestion though.

In reply to RockAngel:

I too have seen that page. have you bought stuff from them before?

I only ask as I'm still wary of buying stuff off the web if it isn't a well known site.

Cheers

Jeweller on Orkney called Shelia Fleet sells online. Nice, detailed and not cripplingly expensive
