A Brief History of Hatton Garden

The history of Hatton Garden  is synonymous with the jewellery industry. During the 1800s, the area became a hub for jewellery and diamond production as further development encouraged businesses to open in Hatton Garden. The East India Company helped cement the area’s reputation because it imported most of the world’s diamonds here. 


By the end of the 1800s, the De Beers company formed and had a monopoly on the world’s diamond mines, and after its merger with the London Diamond Syndicate, Hatton Garden jewellers had easy access to their entire supply of diamonds.


 

While the area may have gained notoriety thanks to the infamous Hatton Garden Heist, it remains to this day an internationally renowned place for fine jewellery production, with over 300 businesses operating in “The Garden”.

 

 


 

Buying Jewellery in Hatton Garden

It’s a special moment to buy jewellery in Hatton Garden. While many tourists visit this world-famous site, there’s also a hubbub of excitement for those looking for magical pieces of jewellery for their special occasion.


If you’re serious about buying jewellery in Hatton Garden, you should abide by the following tips.


1. All Prices are Competitive

High street jewellers are known for the fixed prices that they sell their pieces for. However, with Hatton Garden jewellers you could pay around half the amount you would pay on the high street. This is because independent jewellers are privately owned and avoid flashy advertising, brand premiums and the expensive rents charged across London. There’s nowhere else in London where you’ll find competitive prices on the finest jewellery.


2. Remember the 4Cs

When buying any diamond jewellery, we always recommend that you remember the 4Cs - Cut Colour, Clarity & Carat. Each element of the 4Cs determines how much your diamond will cost. With this in mind, it will help you pick a piece worthy of your special someone.


3. Remember what is meant by Cut and Shape

It’s not unusual for people to be confused about what we mean by diamond cuts and shapes. When assessing the cut, this is in relation to how well the diamond has been shaped and crafted. How well your diamond is made will determine how much you will pay for your ring. By understanding this, it will help you get the best deal.


4. Consider Bespoke Jewellery

 

Hatton Garden is the home of the finest bespoke jewellery. With competitive prices on offer, you can buy a truly unique diamond ring for your loved one, which you would be unlikely to get on the high street.
