    London’s Famous Hatton Garden


    London’s famous Hatton Garden is the centre of the UK diamond trade and home to over 300 jewellery businesses. The area takes its name from Sir Christopher Hatton - a famous English Lord chancellor and politician in the 16th Century. 


    Hatton lived in Ely Place, which became the centre of the chic residential district built up in the 17th century. 


    Entrenched in history (and its fair share of scandal), this magical area has become the country’s best place to sell diamond jewellery and purchase fine jewels. Read on to learn more about how to buy and sell jewellery in Hatton Garden. 


    What is Hatton Garden famous for?

    Buying and selling jewellery has been the main business of this historical London district since the 19th century. Jewellery businesses started to appear in the area when the Hatton family sold off parts of their estate to wealthy merchants.


    The expert craftsmanship and knowledge of those who own workshops and jewellery businesses in Hatton Garden draw people from all over the world. Hatton Garden is not only known for selling fine jewels but for buying them too. 


    If you want to sell your jewellery, then Hatton Garden is the place to do it. The easiest way to go about selling fine jewellery is to start by filling out an online form. Once you enter your item’s details, one of our jewellery buyers will get back to you with a quote or to schedule an appointment. 


    Can I haggle in Hatton Garden? 

    The short answer to this question is yes. Some of the jewellers in Hatton Garden are open to negotiation over price, but it's important to just keep in mind that many establishments will often offer an initial price that is artificially inflated, which they will then significantly discount.


    Building trust with our customers is part of reputation and dedication to outstanding service. When you work with one of our experts, we always start out with the best price we can offer to ensure you will never overpay.   


    Is Hatton Garden cheaper for Engagement Rings?

    Hatton Garden businesses are owned by experts and craftspeople who have worked in the industry and have been selling fine jewellery for many years. The experts you will encounter when visiting a Hatton Garden jewellers have exceptional knowledge and will provide unparalleled advice about you about your choice.


    You won’t find prices on the high street better than those you will find in Hatton Garden. As there are so many shops in such close proximity to one another, you are more likely to find what you are looking for when buying an engagement ring in Hatton Garden. 


    You may be able to buy engagement rings online for less than you will find them in jewellers shops. However, this may come at a sacrifice to the aesthetics of the gemstones. To get an understanding on how the characteristics vary from stone to stone and which ones really catch your eye, it’s important to see a selection in-person or with an experienced online consultant. 


    These are all essential things to think about when purchasing an engagement ring. The jewellers in Hatton Garden provide a level of expertise you can’t receive when you buy a ring online. 


    How do I choose a Hatton Garden Jeweller?

    When choosing a jeweller in Hatton Garden, there are a few things you should take into consideration, such as the reputation of the shop, the quality of the items they offer, the staff’s expertise and past customers’ reviews, which can be found online from Google or companies such as independent platforms such as Feefo.  


    With so many businesses to choose from in the area, it can be hard to decide which jewellers you want to buy from or the best place to sell old jewellery, but the most important thing is that you feel comfortable with any jewellers you work with, providing you with excellent customer service and expertise throughout the process.


    Where is the best place to sell Rings?

    Where to sell your ring depends entirely on the type of ring you want to sell. Different stores will have varying criteria for the type of jewels they accept. Some may only want antique jewels; some may only buy diamonds. 


    The best way to sell expensive jewellery is to obtain quotes from different experts. Ideally, these experts should be professionally accredited and members of the British Jewellers Association. It’s important to make sure the company buying the items of jewellery fully appreciates their value, particularly if it is an antique or important item, such as an Old Mine Cut Diamond, a Kashmir Sapphire or Natural Pearls, as they will be able to give you an accurate and competitive price.
