Clive Ranger Rings goes into administration

Administrators have been called in to a diamond ring specialist with stores in south-west England and Wales.

Clive Ranger Rings said branches in Bristol, Bath, Cardiff and Swansea would continue to operate normally while a buyer was found.

Deloitte has been appointed to oversee the firm, which has 34 employees, while it is sold.

"Clive Ranger has faced a downturn as a result of the difficult economic trading conditions," said a spokesman.
