Michael Matthews was established over 20 years ago by Ian Corica, who named the business after his two sons, Michael and Matthew.
From humble beginnings with a small retail outlet in Westbourne, its success saw led to the opening of its flagship store on Bournemouth's prestigious Westover Road in the town centre, before substantial growth forced it to move into a much larger showroom at 17 Westover Road. Recently, Michael Matthews has opened two new showrooms, on the High Street, Ringwood and in the Thackery Mall, Fareham.
Its latest venture, Charmed by Michael Matthews, resides at the original location of 11 Westover Road. Both showrooms offer the ultimate branded jewellery retail experience.
Michael Matthews has cemented its reputation as one of the South Coast’s most respected and exciting jewellery retailers. It has not only welcomed modern influences, but moved with them. Its informed and friendly staff are one of its greatest assets. Its premises are both inspirational and luxurious, each with a strong personality to match that of its owners. When you enter a Michael Matthews store, or visit its website, you are promised a commitment to a personal service with friendly staff who are always available to advise you.
To complement its commitment to holding the most exciting collection of luxury pre-owned watches, fine and designer jewellery, its design services, buying expertise and after-sales care, it truly ensures true customer satisfaction.
Michael Matthews is still owned and run by the Corica family. Ian Corica has over 30 years’ experience working in the jewellery trade, enjoying aspects of both the retail and wholesale sectors of the industry. Ian has forged a strong reputation as both an honest buyer and seller of fine jewellery and watches in a very close-knit community where one’s word is one’s bond!
