Founded 55 years ago, in 1967, Powells Jewellery in Chester has quietly been growing its business this side of the Millennium.

2002 saw the opening of its first independent store in Chester.

This store is now Powells Vintage Jewellery. Just around the corner the family business opened Powells Fine Jewellery in 2010.


Then in 2018, Powells acquired Lowe & Sons, another Chester business, now operating its shop in the city under the original name.

Owner Will Powell has a lot to do with this growth.

His dedication can be seen in his hard-earned qualification from the Gemological Institute of America, making him Chester’s only certified diamond graduate according to Powells.

He oversees the running of the organisation’s operations, marketing and management, and even assists customers in-store.

“He prides his business on providing a customer experience that exceeds expectations,” a colleague tells PJ.
