Our Diamonds are ethically and responsibly sourced, as we only conduct business with Diamond suppliers who participate within the global Diamond Industry ‘Kimberley Process’; aiming to reduce the flow of conflict Diamonds. We refuse to engage in the trading of any gems whereby the origins have the potential to be conflict diamonds and we strongly support the efforts of the Amnesty International in their deliverance of such origins from oppression. Our diamonds are typically sourced through countries which enforce strict environmental standards as well as standards to support labourers’ human rights. Winsor Bishops Diamonds are honest diamonds.

Currently owned and nurtured by 5th generation family jewellers, Winsor Bishop has set themselves apart from the beginning. Our enduring passion for quality has spanned throughout the ages, our unrelenting diamond buyers working tirelessly to source the finest, most desirable gems.
Nothing excites our Expert Diamond Buying Team like a rare and usual coloured gem, at Winsor Bishop we have been fortunate enough to offer the ever elusive ‘Argyle Pink Diamonds’, a stunning and naturally coloured soft pink gem found in only one place in the world making it both unique and incredibly desirable.
We have also had the pleasure of sourcing precious gems from the appropriately named “Indiana Jones Of the Gem World”, Guy Clutterbuck. Guy travels the world exploring the gem-rich mines of Africa, Madagascar and the Far East and has made his life’s work to forge lasting relationships with the many mining communities as it is not possible to just turn up and expect to buy rare stones in the way that he is able to. Winsor Bishop has been working with Guy for many years and together we are able to source, create and offer for sale the most amazing gemstone jewellery.
Historically our jewellery brand portfolio has always featured among some of the worlds most praised, luxury jewellery designers such as Fope, fine Italian jewellery as well as being proud supporters of British brands and British jewellery creators such as the incredibly talented Shaun Leane and the Charles Green family.
