Our History

​Galio has led innovation and promoted creativity since it's inception in 1992. Founded by David and Sarah Gillow the aim was to offer something new and different to the jewellery market. And indeed our St Albans store still offers one of the widest collections of contemporary fine jewellery in the country. We were true innovators, leading the way to a new style of jewellery retail where the customer comes first and hand made craftsmanship is king.

Our watch brands perfectly complement the jewellery, offering fine quality with a design edge.

The store is  a multi-award winning business receiving accolades for innovation in '92 and Best Independent Jeweller in 2012. From humble beginnings in 1992 the shop has quadrupled  in size to the store it is today, converting the property next door to triple the ground floor showroom space. The perfect space to choose the perfect piece of jewellery.


Visit Galio

We are led by our talented owners Sarah & David. Between them they have over 60 years in the jewellery trade. Their vision & knowledge drive the concept forward. Sarah is responsible for the development of the Galio 'look' and bespoke projects. She will really go the extra mile for her clients. Her skills stem from a grounded knowledge of jewellery & design as well as the ability to listen, to understand their needs and develop just the right thing within those parameters. Sarah & David make a formidable and balanced team and the Galio family is stronger for it.

A visit to our showroom guarantees customers the finest service from trained consultants in a warm, relaxing and welcoming atmosphere. 

We are authorised dealers for all the watch brands we offer so you can relax in the knowledge that we can give you the full support and backing of an international brand and all staff members are qualified to look after your every need. 

Also available is a full repair and valuation service for watches and jewellery.
