About Silver Origins
Our History and Heritage
Silver Origins, established in 1962, is a family business that is definitely not stuck in the past.
Marcus Price, owner and creative director, was born and grew up in West Cornwall, with an affinity for the ocean and coastline having been a keen surfer since childhood. His father, Tony Price, was one of the first commercial divers in Cornwall and began the business with his wife, June, over 45 years ago.
Today, this successful family company is now in its third generation with Marcus’ eldest daughter Sofia joining, involving herself with the design, sales and digital marketing side. An established business with a young modern approach.
The business has come a long way since the early years, evolving to meet the needs of an ever-changing retail environment.
We are also proud owners of two busy jewellery retail stores based in the iconic Cornish towns of St Ives and Marazion.
As an independent company we pride ourselves in the high level of care and attention we bring to every aspect of our business. We have an ethical sourcing policy and are continuously reducing our environmental footprint.
From design development, presentation, through to sales and customer support, we provide a more individual, dependable and friendly service.
Our purpose built head office, workshop and warehouse is situated near Penzance, a stone’s throw from the beach and views of St Michaels Mount.
We employ approximately 20 full-time dedicated staff who all play an integral role in the success of the company making sure customer service is always excellent.
