The Jewellery Quarter

The home of British jewellery with a growing arts scene and plenty of great restaurants and bars. Home to more diamond rings, finishing touches and tokens of love than anywhere else in the country, this is the beating heart of the nation’s jewellery manufacturing. An estimated 40% of British jewellery is made in Birmingham’s unique Jewellery Quarter.

There are over 100 independent specialist retailers and craftspeople to be found here, many with their own workshops making it a wonderful place to explore and buy that special gift, but at a price to surprise. Part of the appeal of going direct to the makers is that bespoke gifts can be commissioned on site with huge savings on high street prices.

The Jewellery Quarter dates back over 200 years and is a Conservation Area with over 200 listed buildings. At the centre of the Jewellery Quarter shopping area stands the Quarter’s Chamberlain clock, and a short walk from this landmark takes you to the Jewellery Quarter’s historic, Key Hill and Warstone Lane Cemeteries. Many of Birmingham’s famous statesmen and inventors are buried here ranging from Harry Gem, the inventor of Lawn Tennis, to Alfred Bird, Birmingham’s ‘Mr Custard’.
