With a jewellery manufacturing history dating back over 250 years, Birmingham Jewellery Quarter is the place to head for a unique jewellery shopping experience. It is said to have the highest concentration of dedicated jewellers in Europe, with 400 jewellers continuing to trade in the area today, producing an estimated 40% of UK jewellery.
Spend the day losing yourself in the myriad of boutique jewellery retailers including traditional craftspeople and contemporary jewellers. Whether you’re looking for a piece of beautiful handcrafted jewellery, a more classic piece, or you’re looking to commission your own design, you can be sure to come away from Birmingham Jewellery Quarter with something really special.
Be sure to take in the sights too. Birmingham Jewellery Quarter is an area steeped in history. Now a proposed World Heritage Site, the area houses over 200 listed buildings as well as Birmingham’s last remaining Georgian Square.
There are also plenty of opportunities to learn more about the history of the area during your shopping trip. Look out for the ‘Charm Bracelet Trail’, a self-guided jewellery trail with 30 pavement slabs all featuring interesting facts about jewellery including when and where the FA cup was made!
The Museum of the Jewellery Quarter, located in an old jewellery factory is also well worth a visit for a fascinating insight into how jewellery is made. If you have time, try and drop into the Pen Room museum too to learn about Birmingham Jewellery Quarter’s reputation in the 19th century as the world’s centre for pen production.
