Rowley’s the Jeweller is one of Penarth’s oldest businesses, established in 1963 and is a traditional family-run jewellers stocking gold and silver, jewellery, watches, and gifts. The Aydin-Barberini family took over from George and Mary Rowley in 2004. The family team are always striving to find new innovative jewellery designs made with the traditional craftsmanship of yesteryear. One of their best selling brands, Clogau, combines these two elements beautifully. We also offer repair services for jewellery and watches.
Decades of Heritage
1963 saw the sea freeze in Penarth for the first time in living memory. That year also saw the Rowley family open Rowley’s The Jeweller at 110 Glebe Street. Over almost sixty years, it became the go-to shop for wedding jewellery, anniversary and birthday gifts, and all jewellery repairs. Since 2004, the Aydin-Barberini family have continued in this tradition, with an added emphasis on traditional craftsmanship mixed with contemporary style. Rowley’s have a particular focus on Welsh designers and makers.
