Simon Milne has been established in Rye since 1994, and is a highly respected, independently owned, family run, retail and manufacturing jewellery business. We maintain a reputation for high quality jewellery and provide a genuinely friendly service whether you are looking for a special diamond ring or a simple repair. Simon Milne took a pre-apprenticeship jewellery design and manufacturing course at KIAD Rochester where after only eight months he was offered an apprenticeship by Denis Green Ltd. Denis Green had previously worked at Garrard as a diamond setter and he taught Simon to his own exacting standards. Wendy Milne started in the trade also at KIAD Rochester where she achieved a BTEC Diploma in Jewellery craft and design. Wendy went on to take a Retail Jewellers Diploma, and work at Harvey Nichols London and E W Payne Bromley, before opening the business in Rye.
