Regent’s Jewellers

Fidra’s little sister shop which has been trading for about 15 years, is situated a stone’s throw away from Fidra, on the corner at 31 Meeting House Lane.  Here you will find a myriad of antique and modern, precious and semi-precious gemstone set jewellery in a whole rainbow of colours, spread over two beautifully adorned windows.

Our quaint, snug little shop is named in honour of Brighton’s most famous (or possibly infamous) and flamboyant resident, George IV, The Prince Regent, who in the early 1800s commissioned the building of our fabulous and extravagant palace, The Royal Pavilion.

Opening hours and contact details are the same as Fidra, but should you wish to contact Regent’s directly, the number is 01273 820690.
