British jewellers Curteis began life on the family’s manor farm, Plas Yolyn, in Shropshire. Roger Curteis bought his first chain-making machine in 1975, and used his engineering skills to make jewellery.
Demand for Roger’s homemade chains grew, and the business expanded out of the farm’s attic. Roger’s sons joined the business, and in 1990, the family firm moved to new premises. Today, Curteis is one of the country’s best-known jewellery manufacturers, making exquisite collections as well as their famous chains.
