As a young man, Nicholas Wylde perfected his craft in the workshops of local jewellers before realising his ultimate dream, at the age of 24 in 1987, of opening his own branded store in the historic and beautiful city of Bath. Originally, the shop was at 13 Northumberland Place but the Wylde Effect quickly grew and Nicholas quickly needed to expand. By 1995 he had moved to larger premises next door at number 12 Northumberland Place, where the flag-ship store remains and flourishes today.
Nicholas infused all his passion and skill into designing and creating original jewellery while his sister Corrinda managed the store. His aim has always been to design and make jewellery which is not easily available on the market and his special collections reflect the abundance of ideas and influences he has. Many of which tell a story of their own.
His creative talent and consummate customer care have ensured the Wylde Brand has blossomed over 30 years to become an internationally recognised and respected name in bespoke jewellery. Read the full history here
In 2010 he opened another branch in Clifton Village which is often described as Bristol’s exclusive suburb. Both shops work well together and our name is becoming more established than ever.
