EXQUISITE Gifts and Accessories has earned a good reputation since it opened in Ely 18 months ago.

"We've been very well received," said James McKay, who runs the Market Street shop with wife Janice.

"We try to offer something different at reasonable prices - a lot of people have said it's nice to have something like this in Ely."

The shop sells a wide range of gem-set silver jewellery, including some pieces that are unique.

Mr McKay said Exquisite was able to offer jewellery at reasonable prices because he bought his stock directly from the designers.

"We also have a large selection of fashion jewellery, evening bags and scarves," he said, adding that the shop has a wide range of accessories for the May ball and prom season.

Mr McKay, who has run similar shops in the Channel Islands before settling in Ely, said friendly and approachable service was a priority.

"We spend a lot of time finding out what the customer is looking for," he said.

"We've built up a good relationship with customers, and if somebody is looking for something, we will try our best to find it for them," he said.

People will soon be able to order gifts and jewellery at a new website, which is currently in production.

INFO: Exquisite Gifts and Accessories is at 57 Market Street, Ely. Phone 01353 669900.

Opening hours: Tuesday-Saturday 10am-5pm. The shop is closed on Sundays and Mondays.
