Find out a little about us...
Mat has worked at Segal’s most of his working life. Mat knows all there is to know about diamonds, having studied in Antwerp. His love for jewellery shows through the pride he has in the shop; every item of jewellery should be displayed perfectly. Initially Segal’s only sold Antique and Secondhand items and Mat introduced new items to the business, such as wedding rings, engagement rings and diamond jewellery.
Understanding the markets is one of Mat’s strengths, especially when it comes to buying in gold, coins, diamonds, and watches, and he always ensures that the customer gets the best deal possible. It is Mat's attention to customer service that makes Segal’s Jewellers stand out from the others as he believes in good old-fashioned values.
Mat can be found in the shop most days either helping customers, or advising customers on repairs or bespoke items. Customers even pop in just to have a chat, asking if the Boss Man is in!
In his spare time, Mat loves sailing, and when he can't be on the water, he takes to running for fun and he loves caravanning. Mat is married to Jane and has two children, Mia and Jakob, who have both shown interest in joining the business.
Jo has worked in Segal’s for 25 years. Starting her working life in the computer industry as a software trainer, she joined the jewellery business after her first child and now works between both the Grimsby and Hull stores. Jo is the one on the end of your emails, she looks after the website orders and loves nothing better than chatting to customers online.
Known as the mummy of the business, she looks after all the staff and makes sure that all the shops run smoothly with the right number of staff, and ensures the stock is kept refreshed and in order.
One of her favourite jobs is creating the website product descriptions and she can get quite flowery! When she’s not sat behind the screen talking to customers, her job is to sort through the secondhand buys and she's the one who decides which items to keep and which items to scrap. Occasionally she is allowed on the shop floors where she is in her element talking and selling to customers.
Married to Martin, they have three children, two of which are now in the business.
In her spare time, she loves walking the family dog, going to the gym, and of course socialising with friends - especially with her old Netball team!
Our glamorous Grandma.
Shirley has been involved in the business since 1994, using her vast experience in running various companies through her life to make Segal's Jewellers what it is today. Shirley was married to Maurice who sadly passed away in 2011. Mum to Jo and Mat, and Grandma to five grandchildren, three of which are in the family business now.
Shirley loves to travel, plays bridge (taking it very seriously), going out with friends and she will always have a puzzle book to hand just in case she gets bored! She brings light and laughter to everyone she meets.
Martin has been with us since 2010 after 25 years as a computer software developer and analyst. Married to Jo (lucky man), he looks after all the paperwork and payroll. He is very organised and makes sure that all suppliers are paid on time.
He is a fountain of knowledge when it comes to the technical and financial side of the business.
He looks after the HR, insurance and accounting aspects of keeping a company like ours running.
In his spare time Martin loves cooking (well that's what Jo likes to think) and loves nothing better than watching a good rugby match or football, cricket, tennis - in fact any sport on TV!
Jane has worked at Segals for over 19 years, and she has spent most of her working life in retail. Jane has a very practical outlook; if something doesn't work she will find an answer. When it comes to either customer repairs or anything DIY, Jane will find a way. Jane has extensive retail knowledge and is very well thought of by our customers, always going above and beyond to help. She has also completed a diamond grading and gemstone course, which of course in our enviroment is extremely helpful!
Jane is married to Mat (The Boss Man), and on most days you will find both Jane and Mat working together in the shop, which often provides a ‘humourous’ insight into the term ‘family business’.
In her spare time she loves to do yoga.
Becki joined our team in 2002, working in our Grimsby store before moving to the Hull store in 2007. Becki is a jack of all trades and a master of all-too; she is known as our fountain of knowledge. Her love for learning has given her the passion to go on many courses and learn as much as she can about the jewellery world resulting in her becoming a fully qualified gemmologist. She is our gem and diamond geek and can often be found with her head in books or looking through her microscope. In everything she does, Becki shines! From sales, to valuations, to grading diamonds and working on gemstones, Becki is a valuable part of our Segal’s family.
In her spare time she does her part for the community by looking after the food bank and she loves going to the gym.
Libby began her Segal’s journey in 2015, working part time in our old gift shop. She now works full time in our Hull store supporting her Mum, Jo and her Uncle Mat, in every way she can. You may also see her face in our Grimsby store a couple of times a week.
Libby has used her marketing degree to revamp and reignite our social medias, taking the stunning pictures showing off all of our unique and wonderful jewellery.
Libby goes above and beyond for each of our customers, ensuring every customer finds what they are looking for – she believes there is a special piece for everyone.

Ben has been a part of our team since 2016 and in that time he has found his passion to be within the luxury watch market. Ben started as our Saturday boy and now works full time in our Hull store - also going over to help in our Grimsby store once a week.
Ben is a natural salesman; his enthusiasm alone will make any purchase an experience to remember, and he takes pride in creating relationships with his customers. He loves to look into the history of the jewellery that we sell, especially coins and watches. On occasions Ben has been known as the Master Polisher, so you can often find him in his overalls, putting the shine back into items. Ben is always happy to help and loves designing jewellery from initial design concepts through to casting, setting and polishing.
Ben has found the love for renovating his house (not!) - however when he's not got a paint brush in his hand he loves nothing more than a round of golf.
Ceilani has been with us since we moved to our fabulous new premises, in December of 2019, bringing a dazzling smile every day.

He is an all-rounder with a will to learn, with a keen interest in watches, bullion and diamonds.
