Welcome To Astwood Dickinson!
The story of Astwood Dickinson Jewelers spans over 115 years, from our original iconic Front St location to today’s industry leading design store which was opened in 2016. We house an ever-growing collection of fine jewelry, timepieces and gifts in our two Bermuda locations. It’s been an extraordinary journey. And the best part…the story keeps getting better!

A TRADITION OF HAPPY CUSTOMERS
Let’s be honest, jewelry is not a necessity. With so much to choose from globally, we are spoilt for choice. But because of Astwood Dickinson’s commitment to me through their exemplary service, even when I am travelling and can pick up the similar piece, I wait until I get home.
We get to choose where we spend our money. Whether giving a gift to someone special, a little gift for myself or finding a gift for a client, I am always delighted with my choice.
Miriam and I first shopped at the old Astwood Dickinson location and I bought my second Cartier watch. Their professionalism and passion about the Jewellery business has kept us in regular contact over the years. Furthermore, the whole AD team is engaing and professional, and always ensure that whether we’re browsing or buying that the experience is an enjoyable one.
In November 2018, Miriam and I travelled to Australia for a family trip. I knew beforehand that I would be purchasing an Opal because it is my birthstone. I found a beautiful 8ct Black Opal and upon our return I popped in to Astwood Dickinson and told them about my desire to have ring made according to my design. They immediately said that AD could execute the project and that he had the perfect artisan to do it. Through many discussions with the team at AD we worked out the details to ensure that the finished piece was exactly right. The completed ring exceeded expectations and is absolutely amazing…when you next pop by ask them about it. As a business they are really shaking things up at AD with their Bermuda Collection competition, the new stones, Franck Muller watches and the private lounge area where projects can be discussed discreetly. We’ll be back soon…and you owe it to yourself to stop by and have a peek – it’s definitely worth it!
The Astwood Dickinson team are family and share a very tight bond with their customers. They are who we trust with all our jewelry needs. They will always give honest and great advice even if it means we do not end up buying something. They have a great selection of shiny items and are always looking for new things that they know (because they have spent time with their customers understanding this) will be exactly what people want. They will always seek out what you want even if they do not have it. By creating a trusted team who are always so engaging and welcoming, we would not even think of going anywhere else. We have become firm friends with the staff and have encouraged others to go see them for advice; who have never looked back either. A long way of saying, you don’t need to look anywhere else when it comes to getting quality at a reasonable price and from caring people; yes it is a people business!
I have always had fantastic service when shopping at Astwood Dickinson, because of this I will continue to remain a loyal and regular customer. Cannot wait till my next purchase!
To look at two Formula One cars, aside from the distinctive paint jobs, it would be hard to tell one from the other. Yet these are machines built independently, in secret, by isolated teams working to different principles and ideas. The reality is that each car is incredibly different on a micro level, despite seeming so indistinct at the macro. The same could be said of Rolex’s Submariner and Omega’s Seamaster—two watches that seem so similar on the surface, yet differ in approach so dramatically when seen just a little closer.
For almost 15 years, I worked for corporate jewellers. Over 20 years ago, I first came to work for Astwood Dickinson. Since I have experienced working for both a jewellery chain and a locally owned store, I want to share with you some of the reasons why you should consider buying your jewellery (or watches) from a small business.
