Exploring Birmingham’s Historic Jewellery Quarter

Nestled in the heart of Birmingham in the West Midlands lies a treasure trove of history, craftsmanship, and culture - the Jewellery Quarter. Spanning over 250 years of heritage, this unique district has evolved from a hub of artisanal workshops to a vibrant community teeming with creativity and innovation. Located just over a mile from the city centre in the district of Hockley, this location is a real “Day Out” if you are shopping for any kind of Jewellery. The area is synonymous with quality, and a substantial amount of Jewellery is produced here. It is no surprise that the Birmingham Assay Office, responsible for testing and hallmarking metals is located here and is the busiest in the world.

A Glittering Legacy

The story of the Jewellery Quarter dates back to the late 18th century when the Industrial Revolution was in full swing. In the 1700s, Birmingham was a bustling centre of metalworking, and skilled artisans flocked to the area seeking opportunities. As demand for jewellery soared, the Jewellery Quarter emerged as a dedicated hub for goldsmiths, silversmiths, and craftsmen, earning Birmingham its reputation as the “City of a Thousand Trades.” Apart from a brief period during the second world war when factories where put to use making items to support the war effort, jewellery manufacturing has been continuous in this area for hundreds of years.
