The history of jewellers and related manufacturing businesses is well documented. Long may the industry continue to flourish and develop. Over the years, there has been a desire to attract other sectors, such as the arts, media and creative industries, to complement the jewellery industry.
VIBRANT PLACE TO WORK
Various buildings have been converted to studio offices and live/work units, bringing uniqueness to the area.
The Quarter also attracts a large number of professional services – architects, accountants, solicitors, and financial services – in the areas that filter off the golden mile, moving towards the city and around St Paul’s Square. There is a growing business community well served by bars, restaurants, cafés and specialist shops, making this a great place to locate your business.
Well connected with Birmingham City Centre, businesses can enjoy the best of both worlds.

EXPLORE SMALL BUSINESS SATURDAY
Small Business Saturday (SBS) is a grass-roots, non-political, non-commercial campaign that encourages people to support small businesses in their communities, both on Saturday itself and beyond.
The campaign also aims to support, inspire and promote small business all year round.
The initiative started in 2010 in the US, and has generated a lot of custom for small businesses. The campaign is now in its fourth year in the UK.
Our nation’s small businesses provide almost two-thirds of private sector employment and almost half of private sector turnover. Here, in Birmingham’s Jeweller Quarter, we are home to the largest population of small and micro-businesses in the city.
If you are a Jewellery Quarter Business and would like to get involved with SBS then, please contact Tina Francis.
If you are looking to invest in the area or have recently moved into the area then the following activities may be of interest to you.
