As well as it’s regalia business it makes and sells cufflinks and men’s accessories through the London Badge and Button Company and KJD Jewellers brands.

Her Royal Highness, who is patron of the UK Fashion and Textiles Association, toured the factory and was introduced to staff who still manufacture jewellery and regalia to the highest quality with traditional methods including vitreous enamel, rope-stamping and soldering to name a few.

“A royal visit is, of course, a great honour,” said Declan McHale, Head of Luxury Menswear and Fashion Accessories at Toye’s, “and we think it’s wonderful Her Royal Highness shows such a keen interest in places like ours where we’re doing everything we can to keep Birmingham’s great tradition of jewellery manufacture alive.”
