Vous et Nul Aute – translated from Norman English the phrase means You and No Other.

John W Thompson, engraved the phrase around a hand-crafted ring for his wife. “I think it’s really romantic,” he enthuses down the phone. For himself, John engraved a ring with the phrase Cave Patentis Furorum – Beware the Fury of a Patient Man. It seems impossible to imagine John being furious. In fact he is ebullient, spinning anecdotes and jokes, relating memories and history. “I like talking to people,” he says.

Having worked with his father as his apprentice, Peter is carrying on the family’s traditional craft business on the fourth floor of The Dymocks Building; crafting wedding and engagement rings from yellow, rose and white gold and platinum and can engrave phrases in any language as well as cufflinks and rings with family crests, to be used for wax seals.

The quality of the work that we do is outstanding,” said John. “We try our utmost to produce 110% quality on everything that we make. The best thing to do is to come and see us and you’ll be amazed by the work”.
