About Us

Godshaws is your local Hertfordshire Jewellers!


Independent and family run, Godshaws was established as your Hertfordshire Jewellers in 1947 by Mr Freddy Godshaw and is now in the hands of his son Mr Steve Godshaw.

Since 1947 Father and son have created a warm, welcoming family business that provides the highest customer care and service. Therefore we value every customer, new and old. Be it a quick pop in for a battery or an afternoon long browse for that very special piece, we will do our best to meet your needs. A friendly bunch, we aim to be as personable and approachable as a Jewellers can hope to be!

You will find us in Welwyn Garden City, Hertfordshire.


We are proud to be a part of your local Hertfordshire Jewellers. Customers visit from far and wide and we are proud of the relationships we have built and seek to maintain.

Customers will find a diverse range of Platinum, Gold, Silver and Diamond Jewellery at Godshaws. Plus unusual handmade pieces, Men’s and Women’s watches and well known fashion brands. We always seek new trends and explore the latest designs in luxury Jewellery and high value pieces. Godshaws specialise in Wedding rings, engagement rings and eternity rings, in addition to the opportunity to personalise your jewellery with engraving or our bespoke design service.

Purchasing jewellery is a very personal experience and often of great sentimental importance.


These purchases need to be maintained, altered and cared for over the years. Therefore we offer many services to help you look after your collection. This includes watch repairs, jewellery repairs, alterations and battery services and more. Please see Services for more information on what we can offer you and your jewellery.
