The Jewellery Quarter is one of the oldest districts in Birmingham. Around a 15minute walk from the city centre and well connected with trains, trams and buses. The area has a reputation of high quality, bespoke Jewellery but is home to countless independent restaurants, bars and cafes. The Quarter is home to over 200 listed buildings including the Grade I* St Paul’s Church which sits on top of the last Georgian Square in Birmingham. We have three amazing museums, a handful of galleries and all sorts of interesting and unique attractions. We have an annual festival in July that celebrates everything Jewellery Quarter, this is something to highlight in your calendars. Whether it is shopping, sightseeing or enjoying a drink with friends, the Jewellery Quarter is the place to be. This page is managed by the Jewellery Quarter Business Improvement District.

    Great place to buy jewellery - HJ Hockley Jewellers Ltd
    What a lovely family run business, Mike Jeffreys was very helpful helping order a ring i had seen on their website, he offered me alternatives if i wanted to take it away but also said he could arrange delivery the following day by special mail. Lovely staff and surrounding. Large choice of rings and jewellery. Will definitely visit again

    Good place to sell Silver and Gold Jewellery
    Went to the Birmingham Gold Company to sell some silver and Gold Jewellery, in September. I came here a few years ago, and found the person I dealt with friendly, and helpful. So I returned. It was the same experience helpful person and friendly.

    Next level customer service!
    I purchased two wedding bands from Hockley Jewellers at the beginning of the year. The bank chosen for my wife has diamonds inset and unfortunately one fell of the stones came loose and fell out. HJ couldn't have been more understanding and accommodating. This was clearly something out of the usual and HJ couldn't have been more understanding. Without any complaint, they fixed the ring and returned it to us within 48hrs, and at no cost. Their professionalism, advice and after-sales give me total confidence to use HJ again in the future.

    I visited today looking for a watch. I was looked after by Gemma who was really helpful and informative. Gemma told me of the offers, but there was no pressure to buy. She offered to hold the watch for me while I went away and re visited a watch I had seen earlier, …. only for me to return later to purchase the watch Gemma had helped me with. Excellent range of watches and excellent service.

    Avoid big bling style shops and focus on smaller lesser shops
    The only place to go for jewellery to buy repair or sell. a real wow. DO SHOP AROUND/ 1st jeweller said cant be done 2nd jeweller said £1350 3rd jeweller said £90/ guess who got our business. Avoid the big bling shops and focus on smaller off piste shops.

    Victoria James
    Me and my husband visited Victoria James after reading reviews. As soon as we walked in and spoke to them we knew we'd chosen the best place to go. I had been given a ring that was my great grandmother's wedding ring with five diamonds. It's over 100 years old and was absolutely tiny for my finger. We wanted it remodelled into a ring that I could wear as an eternity ring with my engagement and wedding ring. I wish I'd got his name, but he was fantastic. He spent time going through the options, drawing out the designs and even polished and resized my engagement and wedding ring. We didn't feel rushed at all and he was friendly and chatty. The atmosphere made it a special experience which is exactly what you want from an eternity ring. We left knowing the ring was in totally safe hands. I was nervous with excitement collecting the ring a week later. We were totally overwhelmed with how the ring is true to its inheritance, but beautiful and modern. I can honestly say it was the best choice of jeweller and if I need anything else in the future I'll be back. Thank you so much for your genius work and creating something so special. Hopefully it will be around for many more years to come and maybe one day I can it to my grsndaughter.

    Hockley Jewellers
    Over the last few months I have had the most incredible and friendly service from Izzie at Hockley Jewellers, as we worked together to create my dream bespoke ring. Izzie is absolutely lovely and clearly wants to make her clients happy. She went the extra mile to make sure the ring was everything I wanted it to be, and kept in regular contact to keep me updated. It was a pleasure to have done this with Izzie. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to get something a bit different or unique - she will embrace the challenge :) And every time I walked into Hockley Jewellers I received a warm welcome from the staff. No pictures attached in case anyone copies me!! LOL But it is AMAZING :-)

    Crystalink Jewellery
    Myself and my partner had been to a few jewelers on the hunt for a simple, sophisticated engagement ring. The Jewellery Quarter was recommended to us, however when we first arrived we felt completely out of depth and slightly uncomfortable, especially when we entered some of the larger, modern establishments. We came across Crystalink Jewellery and instantly felt welcome. With little to no knowledge of diamonds, the 4 C's were explained to us and we began designing my perfect ring right there and then. I picked my favourite diamond, and then we began describing the sort of band I would like it to sit on. After 3 weeks we received the call that my ring was ready for collection, and I could have cried. It was absolutely beautiful and exceeded all of my expectations. I love that it is bespoke to me, and that we have had a lovely experience in designing it. The ring came with a valuation for insurance purposes along with a lab certificate confirming its qualities. We cant thank the team at Crystalink Jewellery enough.

    Jewellery Quarter tour
    Jonathan was our tour guide. He was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. He kept a decent pace and all went well. I think I missed where one could buy jewelry today. I was expecting to see some of today's shops. He pointed out where the jewelers worked, etc. in the past and the history. We were entertained with Jonathan bringing along some plated items. Despite the cold weather, the tour was nice. We received a book at the end - for free, but was asked for a donation. It's a lovely book.

Great Architecture and style await! The streets have a wide range of styles, converted warehouses, stylish modern and converted industrial heritage buildings all combine with a variety of shops, pubs, restaurants and hotels.

We DO NOT recommend Diamond Heaven in Birmingham to go to for Jewellery.
Went in January to go and purchase my wedding ring after this shop being recommended to us. We was greeted by a girl called Priya who showed us rings, let us try several rings on and knew what she was talking about (so we thought) I then had an idea of what I wanted and we sat down to get the order in of what I wanted adding to the ring etc, all was confirmed price was confirmed we paid 50% deposit and told they will be in contact when my ring is in.
Fast forward my ring comes in, myself and partner went in on Eater Sunday to collect ring, We wasn’t greeted the same way we was when we originally went in asked for Priya to be told she no longer works on shop floor, anyway we went and sat down at a table the lady that greeted us bought “my” ring out (she never introduced herself so no idea what her name was) opened the box with said ring in, it wasn’t the ring we ordered or anything like it.
I got my phone out to show photos of original ring I tried on and explained what else it should have on it, she took photos off my phone and took it to manager, she come back and explained that Priya had done the order wrong and we needed to go back trying rings to find the original ring I had tried on to which we found they no longer had it there so found something close by going through the photos I had, she said there would be a price difference for the ring and will speak to Manager “Sarah” to find out what that would be, 20 minutes passed she come back and said we would need to pay ANOTHER £1000 on top of what we had already paid to get the ring I actually wanted. I’m sorry but a mistake made on your behalf why am I having to pay more money when what I ordered in the first place was done incorrectly?

Sarah then come out and introduced herself “Sorry for what has happened but there is nothing else we can do as that is cost” no sympathy of what is happening and what should be a big achievement of us collecting wedding rings.
We then decided we just wanted our money back and get out of the shop, after waiting for our money they come out and said they can’t get in contact with the director for the pin for the safe to give us cash back, nor can they do bank transfer without directors permission, so we said we would continue to wait, Sarah again come back out and said well it is Easter Sunday nothing they can do for us today and promised it would be sorted first thing on Tuesday.
Anway today is now Thursday, after several phone calls, messages, fake promises each day that we will get our money from all different staff we have now finally got our money back after mentioning Trading Standards (funny that)
The customer service we received on Sunday was next to none, no sympathy or no lets try and resolve this and start scratch, absolutely nothing…
Your mistake but we had to fight to get OUR money back!
I recommend you go elsewhere for your wedding rings or any jewellery for that matter.

A bit of a walk from the city centre considering we did not stay long. This area is nice to quickly walk by the jewellery store windows to browse, otherwise quite dilapidated in parts but has its charm. I Spotted a nice coffee shop in this area.

I did the Jewellery Quarter walk as described by a leaflet. Some parts are nice and the Pen Museum is great, but many areas are very impoverished with a lot of boarded up lots and areas used as landfills.
It did not help that the Jewellery Museum is closed for maintenance.
