About Us & Our Team

Our Story

Bath-based designer jewellers

The Gold & Platinum Studio is owned and run by goldsmith and gemmologist Michael Parsons. Michael is passionate about the traditional goldsmithing techniques he has perfected over many years of making.

After studying jewellery design in the 1980’s, Michael worked in Sydney for three years making bespoke pieces for an established jeweller. Subsequently he returned to the U.K. and settled in Bath. In 1997 he took over the running of what was The Gold & Silver Studio, a business started by two craftsmen in 1970.

In 2006, Michael expanded the business into its current location in Northumberland Place and re-named it Gold & Platinum Studio. Fundementally he provides the same services that has been offered for over fifty years – fine quality bespoke jewellery made to order.
