About us:

Wearnes Jewellers established in 1890, by William Wearne, is headed by fourth generation family member Sarah Corbridge and her husband Adam. Click here to learn about Wearnes History.

Sarah is the inventor of the famous Cornish Tin & Gold alloy, and has received commissions from the very highest of places! A ceremonial cup, lined with her 18ct Cornish Tin & Gold is held at the Goldsmiths Hall in London. Below you can see examples of some of her many commission pieces.

Sarah has brought a modern influence into an establishment with unmatchable experience and professionalism, bringing Wearnes to the forefront in retail jewellery. Her artistic flair has created a luxury shopping experience in store, adorning them with hand embroidered silks and crystal chandeliers.

Sarah’s jewellery is both classic and contemporary, tailoring it to tastes of her clients. Specially designed bespoke commissions and remodelling of family heirlooms have become Wearnes speciality – and tokens of love leave romantically from Cornwall for all over the world.

In the 1990s, Sarah designed the ‘Lily of the Valley’ range of jewellery with Helston’s famous Flora Day in mind, as well as the Cornish Diamond Tin Collection – made from salvaged shipwrecked Cornish Tin and diamonds, now available as part of the St. Justin tin range.

In 2002 HRH Prince Charles received an 18 carat gold Lily of the Valley brooch to commemorate HM Queen Elizabeth’s Golden Jubilee. HRH Prince Charles also received some Cornish Tin cufflinks.

A Cornish Tin tankard made by Wearnes in the early 1900’s was presented to King George VI by Camborne Chamber of Commerce, during his coronation tour in 1937.

Sarah Corbridge PJDIP of Wearnes, a family run jewellers steeped in history, has been designing jewellery and undertaking bespoke jewellery commissions for more than 30 years. Sarah invented the Cornish Tin & Gold alloy in 2007, when she desired a precious metal of Cornish origin to craft her jewellery from.
Jewellery made from Cornish Tin & Gold provides an everlasting memory of Cornwall, and also celebrates the 10th Wedding Anniversay which is traditionally associated with ‘Tin’.
The Tin added to Cornish Tin & Gold has been salvaged from the shipwreck SS Liverpool which sank off Anglesey in 1863. This ship shown in the photograph below was carrying Tin ingots smelted by Bolithos, Penzance in Cornwall to Lima, Peru, and is shown colliding with the barque Laplata.
