A York jeweller has this week reopened to the public after an extensive refurbishment project costing around £20,000.

Nightingale was founded by husband and wife Stephen and Diane Nightingale in 2016 and specialises in creating bespoke pieces for clients.

Now the second incarnation of its store in York city centre is open to the public just in time for Christmas shoppers.


Nightingale prioritises its eco-friendly credentials, using lab-grown diamonds, ethically mined diamonds and Fairtrade gold.

Speaking of the brand’s eco-credentials, Atkins said: “When you buy from us, you join us in our mission to support better working conditions, better environmental practices and more transparent supply chains.

“Whilst we’re not claiming to be putting an end to the harm caused by the diamond mining industry, we do want to educate and encourage buyers on how they can make a more ethically informed purchase when it comes to fine jewellery.”

Nightingale also promises a ten-year guarantee, complimentary resizing, ring cleaning and insured delivery with each ring purchased.
