The Mitchel & Co Guide to The Birmingham Jewellery Quarter

Planning a visit to Birmingham’s famous Jewellery Quarter? Well, you are in the right place – as a jeweller based directly in Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter, we provide expert insider insight into the area.

The Jewellery Quarter Birmingham – A History

The Jewellery Quarter in Birmingham is quite unlike any other destination in the UK. The quarter has been described by the English Heritage as a ‘national treasure’ with a ‘particular combination of structures associated with jewellery and metalworking which does not seem to exist anywhere else in the world’. So, taking in some of the architecture is certainly a must!

The Jewellery Quarter contains one of Europe’s largest concentrations of manufacturing jewellers and businesses in the jewellery trade, and produces 40% of all jewellery made in the UK. Historically, Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter shops have been the centre of jewellery production since the 1800s, in which it was home to some of the most skilled craftspeople and the birthplace of many advancements in the jewellery industry. Today, the Jewellery Quarter remains a hub for skilled jewellers and jewellery manufacturers, with over 100 specialist retailers and craftspeople working here who combine traditional craftsmanship with innovative designs and premium materials to create stunning jewellery – often at better prices than anywhere else in the UK.

From bespoke designs and wedding rings to watches, gold and silver necklaces and gemstone bracelets to diamond earrings – the Jewellery Quarter inspires some of the most prestigious jewellers in Birmingham and the UK.
