Amazing!  It is in a part of England that is dear to me, although I will never see it in person.  My father's mother grew up in the south of Devon.

tsk tsk

The different spellings of jewellery in British and American English can cause confusion. The British spelling jewellery adds -lery to jewel, while the American spellin&#609; jewelry adds -ry.
