Museum of the Jewellery Quarter
75-80 Vyse Street Hockley Birmingham B18 6HA
Enjoy a guided tour around a real jewellery factory little changed since the early part of the last century, including a demonstration of jewellery making techniques at the jeweller’s bench. For more than eighty years Smith and Pepper produced jewellery from this workshop, founded in 1899.
The ‘Earth’s Riches’ gallery showcases jewellery made from material found in the natural world, from whale tooth and coral to diamond and platinum. A wide range of original jewellery by local designer makers is sold through the museum shop, as well as a wide variety of gifts and books.
The Museum tells the story of jewellery production in Birmingham over the last 200 years as well as exploring the Jewellery Quarter as it is today
