Peter Barbarovich is the creator of Barovic Jewellers… He is not only a very gifted designer and maker of jewellery but was also a keen scuba diver.
Peter was born in South Africa and, after completing his goldsmithing apprenticeship travelled and spent many happy years working within the diving industry in the Red Sea. His love of the beautiful marine life around the oceans inspired him to start ‘www.ReefJewelry.com’ in 1998, along side his wife Donna, from their premises in England. This marine inspired luxury jewellery range is still sold today on their website and in Barovic Jewellers.
Travelling the world Peter gained new inspiration and techniques in jewellery design and manufacture which he bought with him to Bedford whilst working as the goldsmith in Collins Jewellers. When Mr and Mrs Collins returned Peter and Donna took over the business renaming it Barovic Jewellers. Now, for over a decade, this family business has grown from a retailer to a bespoke jewellers.
This has now led to the way to opening an accredited jewellery training school, Barovic Jewellery Academy, that will train future generations of goldsmiths and jewellery designers.
At Barovic Jewellers we offer the highest quality of craftsmanship in our handmade jewellery and extensive collections of eye-catching jewellery. Designs in silver, gold and platinum to suit every taste.
From diamond engagement rings and coloured stone jewellery to silver jewellery handmade in-store you will find that special gift to show your loved one just how much you care.
Choosing an engagement ring can be a daunting process but at Barovic Jewellers we will take you step-by-step to finding the perfect ring. From deciding on the stone (cut, carat, colour and clarity) to advising on the perfect mount to set your chosen diamond in. We will help you make this important and grand gesture as personal to you as your relationship is, resulting in a piece of jewellery that will mark the next step in your journey together.
At Barovic Jewellers our expert team of on-site goldsmiths perform a wide range of jewellery repairs from ring resizing, stone replacement, chain repairs and much more in our ON-SITE WORKSHOP.
Our front of house jewellery experts will advise and guide you through your requirements and the repair process, from checking your ring claws through to discussing large restoration projects. We can source unusual stones for replacement or hand build settings to accommodate unique sized stones. We pride ourselves on providing our clients with the best service and peace of mind that your precious jewellery is being lovingly restored and repaired in our on-site workshop.
When the gemsetter receives a piece for work, for most techniques the ground has already been prepared. Each stone’s place has been defined and marked out, and guide holes have been drilled, though of smaller diameter than the stones will require in the end.
By making a depression with a ball burr, the gemsetter prepares the bed for the stone. He then works the metal with his graver, raising it into beads or grains. These tiny amounts of metal will hold the stone firmly in place. When the stone is positioned, the grain is split, and the separated sections grip the adjacent stone on either side. Lastly, the grain is rounded, polished, and any rough edges smoothed. This is a classic setting for diamonds. But Barovic Jewellers artisans also employ other techniques for setting precious gems.

We offer a bespoke handmade jewellery design service to help you to bring your jewellery dreams to life. Our specialist in-house team will custom design your piece of jewellery to your own personal specifications, making your glittering dreams a reality.
Creating a piece of bespoke jewellery could be seen as the ultimate indulgence, but with custom design come unique possibilities. For some it’s the opportunity to convey feelings that can’t be put into words, for others it’s the perfect way to bring a sentimental stone or tarnished precious metal right up to date with a stunning new form, turning something that’s tired and unworn into something you’ll treasure.
From a wedding or engagement ring to bracelet, earrings or pendant, when it comes to the ultimate gift or even a touch of self-gifting, the creation of a bespoke piece of jewellery is extremely personal. We therefore encourage you to hand-pick from a selection of diamonds, gemstones and precious metals. If you have a particular shape, colour or cut in mind, we would be delighted to source the perfect stone.
