About Us

Furr & Co is a family-owned fine jewellery business in the attractive market town of Hungerford.

Greg and Rachel Furr – a goldsmith and a gemmologist – are the directors of Furr & Co.  Greg studied at London’s Sir John Cass College and opened his first jewellery shop in Wokingham in the 1970’s. He came to Hungerford in 1995.  His wife Rachel has a specialist knowledge of antique jewellery and worked for many years with Bonham’s auction house in London. They bought No. 7 Bridge Street  in 2005 and after a six-month restoration, they opened their new and much larger shop in February 2006 with jewellery and workshops over two floors.  It differs somewhat from the average High Street jewellery shop – the elegant Georgian interior is fitted with neo-classical style display cabinets in dark blue and gold leaf which provide a sympathetic backdrop for the uncluttered displays of jewellery at  Furr & Co – the Hungerford Jeweller.

We compliment our jewellery with other collections sourced from British and European designers.

Whether you are looking for a diamond engagement ring or a piece of ultra-modern silver jewellery by Georg Jensen, we are always delighted to help.  If you are seeking  advice on a  small repair or a major purchase or commission,  you  will deal with one of the directors or a knowledgeable member of our staff”.
