The Jewellery Quarter

Historic and unique.

 

The first record of jewellery being manufactured in what would become the Hockley area of Birmingham is in a survey from 1553, a goldsmith by the name of Roger Pemberton. During the Industrial Revolution, the Jewellery Quarter grew in importance; in 1880 there were over 700 workshops employing over 7,500 people and the jewellery trade was the most lucrative in the city.

The jewellery and silverware produced in the area was regarded as the highest quality available and included Queen Victoria’s personal jewellery, the Wimbledon Ladies Trophy and the original FA Cup, which was frequently won by Aston Villa.

The Quarter reached its peak in 1914 when there were over 20,000 people employed in the trade.  As well as jewellery the area was central to the manufacturing of pen nibs, coins and even coffin furniture; Winston Churchill and Princess Diana’s coffin furniture was made in the Quarter.

During the two World Wars the factories were primarily used to make military buttons, badges and medals, as well as munitions which resulted in the area being heavily bombed by the Luftwaffe.

Rebuilding commenced during the 50’s and 60’s and the modern layout we have today emerged. The area was designated a Conservation Area by English Heritage in 1971 and in more recent times, while still producing 40% of the jewellery made in the UK, it has become the creative hub of Birmingham, with many creative industries such as design and architecture making Hockley their home, as well as many excellent bars and restaurants.

We are keen to build lasting relationships with our customers, to increase everyone's sales.
