Mark Hicks, a third generation independent jeweller, founded Farringdons Jewellery in 2006 as a modest stall in the The Heart of Hatton Garden Jewellery Emporium.
In 2011 Mark’s son Liam joined the family business and not long after his daughter Alexandra as well. Farringdons moved to its current premises on Greville Street, centrally located in London’s Hatton Garden, one of the world’s finest jewellery districts.
From our Hatton Garden storefront, we continue to grow our clientele both in-person and online with customers from all over the world coming back again and again for high-quality diamonds, gemstones and fine antique and vintage jewellery.
The Right Jewellery for the Right Person
Jewellery says something about the person who wears it, and at Farringdons, we can help you find the right piece for the right person.
We have one of Hatton Garden’s largest selections of antique and vintage engagement rings. We also stock a broad selection of antique and vintage cocktail and dress rings, bracelets, necklaces, and earrings.
Our growing and ever-changing antique and vintage collection includes exceptional pieces from the Georgian, Victorian, Edwardian and Art Deco eras through to spectacular vintage 40s, 50s and 60s jewels, and on to unique pre-owned items from the later half of the twentieth century.
At Farringdons, we pride ourselves on three things: our expert knowledge of jewellery, our personalised service, and our ever expanding clientele from around the world.
So what do our customers say about us?
The first rate customer service, teamed with the beautiful selection of rings makes Farrindgons the go to place if you want to buy an antique engagement ring in London. Alexandra was great – she made us feel really at ease, answered all of our questions honestly and never made us feel under pressure. Farringdons were able to resize my ring on the same day day and posted it out to us within a couple of days. I’m absolutely delighted with my ring and Farringdons made our ring buying experience really straight forward. Thank you 🙂

Farringdons Jewellery and Liam were wonderful to work with. They have such a beautiful selection and I got the most stunning ring from them. I will definitely buy from them again in the future. And my next trip across the pond and to London will include an in person visit to their shop!
– Danielle Dewey
I purchased a Tiffany Eternity Ring for my wife’s birthday from Farringdons Jewellery during the January Lockdown and was a little apprehensive of buying this type of item without seeing it. I need not have worried as I dealt with Liam for the whole buying process who proved to be knowledgeable, polite and very helpful throughout. I don’t often write reviews for products or services but believe that these guys thoroughly deserve the praise that I’m giving them. If I were to look for any future jewellery purchases, Farringdons will be my first, and possibly only port of call. One last word to Liam, as you predicted, my wife was thrilled with her ring. Thankyou once again.
– Wisbech Mobility
Lovely jewellery and great staff that go the extra mile to make a special moments extra special.

I have found this to be the best jewellers in Farringdon. Having been to a few others, their customer service was exemplary. I had some pieces of jewellery valued, and decided to sell with them. I was also looking for a wedding band, and they were good enough to recommend the best jewellers in Hatton Garden for it. I worked with Liam and he clearly knew his stuff and told me more about my heirlooms.
– Siobhan McGirr
Couldn’t ask for better service. 5 Stars.
– James Davies
Such a beautiful collection of original jewellery. The owners are friendly, trustworthy and kind. Definitely check them out for something special!
– Melanie Morey
I happened to find my wedding ring here (second hand, rose gold). It was just what I was looking for, well-priced and re-sized for free while I waited. Very friendly service, and a much nicer experience than other shops in the area.
– Sophie Barrow
My fiancé has told me that he was very nervous about buying my engagement ring, but as soon as he got to Farringdons he was put at ease and got some really good advice. I absolutely adore my ring and the aftercare and help with any issues has been amazing and totally stress free. We will be back for our wedding bands!
– Kate Gilpin
My fiancée picked a stunning vintage ring from Farringdons and I’m completely in love with it. He says the process to buy it (during lockdown!) was really straight forward and Liam was really helpful. When we went in for the free resize, the whole team were so warm and welcoming. The process was all done in about 3 hours and the end result is stunning! So happy, thank you so much.
– Ellena Schuster-Farrell
Thanks to Liam and Farringdons for making the engagement ring hunting experience such a good one. A day spent looking in famous Bond Street stores, some traditional jewellers and elsewhere in Hatton Garden had left us cold. Liam welcomed us into Farringdons and was accommodating, knowledgeable and made looking through the rings a pleasant experience. Having got engaged at the beginning of lockdown we were delighted to find a ring spied all those weeks ago on Farringdon’s Instagram still glimmering away in the shop window and it quickly won the day. A 1920s ring with an old cut diamond sparkling with history and craftsmanship.
– Brian Moher
Farringdons is a wonderful and friendly treasure trove of classic jewellery. Hatton Gardens can be a little intimidating and we found this shop to be a fantastic relief. Alexandra was such a brilliant help for us and without any pressure sell she carefully listened to our brief and helped us explore options. We purchased this engagement ring during lockdown and the delivery service worked perfectly. Five stars!
– Stephen Ladlow
We recently chose my engagement ring at Farringdons and couldn’t recommend the staff there enough as well as they lovely, friendly staff. They were very patient and helpful when we came in a few times in a day with questions and me making my mind up…They were also v understanding when I had to resize it twice! Big thanks for Alexandra for helping us out – I have my dream antique ring and couldn’t be happier!
– Lauren H
Beautiful selection of jewellery and amazing service and after care, these guys are the “go to” in Hatton garden.
– Paul Mackie
Thank you Alexandra for all your help on picking the perfect ring for a fussy wife, also thank you for the ring alteration on the same day. i would recommend Farringdons jewellery 5* rating.

– Angelique Wright
We had an excellent experience at Farringdons Jewellery when purchasing my engagement ring. Alexandra listened carefully to our preferences and identified the most perfect ring for us. We returned a few times during the day before purchasing, and Alexandra and Liam were very kind, patient and knowledgeable, answering all our questions and re-sized the ring on the same day. We strongly recommend this family-run business when looking for truly special and unique antique/second hand jewellery – stunning selection, lovely people and a great experience, thank you!

Story of my (replacement Engagement) 1920 Vintage Ring…
My husband and I had visited Farringdons some months back, I had selected a ring, but it was far too small to see if it suited me, the guys in the store were SUPER Friendly and offered to resize for free to ensure it was the right decision. We were due to go back to the branch within 2hrs, but unfortunately we had to head back home to our daughter. We did call to advise the guys and we suggested we would try and get back in a few days, which the store explained was no trouble. 8 months later, as life had become quite busy, the ring had slipped my mind. This time we were passing the store and decided to check again to see if it was still available. How Lucky was I- the ring box( which had been in the window) had accidentally closed and the team weren’t able to find, people passing also hadn’t been able to view. 10 mins later, I was reunited with the ring and the size was perfect, I wear it everyday and feel so lucky to have found such a gorgeous vintage piece. when buying any item, it should feel special and these guys made that happen, We didn’t feel any pressure- which I have done in previous jewellery stores. Highly Recommend!
I would highly recommend this fabulous family owned store.
Shopping today for an anniversary gift my husband and I were attracted by the beautiful display of vintage rings in the shop window. After careful consideration the ring I finally chose was a gorgeous 1960’s emerald cut diamond ring. The service we received from Liam ( the store manager) during this process was exceptional, he was extremely knowledgeable and helpful explaining to us the heritage behind the ring and the diamond as well as the romance that comes with buying a piece of vintage jewellery. We didn’t feel at all rushed and Liam went that extra mile to ensure we were delighted with our purchase.
If you are thinking of investing in a piece of vintage jewellery that comes with history then this is your place and it is so lovely to give a beautiful piece of jewellery a new life. Gorgeous shop, excellent service and we will definitely re visit.
– Karen Terpening
Great experience with Alexandra today, who was very happy to let me view and try on a number of different rings before settling on two purchases. Thank you for your help and making me feel welcome.
– Gabrielle Jenkins
Best Jewelers in Hatton Garden!
I have taken 4 rings over the years to be re-sized by them and have always had a fantastic service and received the ring back on the same day.
Having recently got engaged I took my engagement ring there as I trust them 100%.. I ended up having it re-sized 3 times (not any fault of theirs) to get to the perfect size. Lima and Caitlin were so welcoming and understanding when I expressed my embarrassment at me having to have it re-sized again. On every occasion, the last one being a Saturday I only had to wait a couple of hours until it was ready and they were kind enough to only charge me once.
They are by far the friendliest shop in Hatton Garden and a 1 minute walk from Farringdon Station. I will never use any other jeweller going forward… They are fantastic and I highly recommend.
– Karen P
Beautiful jewellery and fantastic customer service!
We bought our engagement ring here and they stayed open late to accommodate our busy schedules. They have subsequently cleaned our ring for free before our big day and also cleaned my wedding ring for free that I inherited. The rings were beautifully cleaned! Thank you so much again!
– Rhi A
Excellent service – reasonable price!
Called yesterday to see if I could pop in and have 2 rings resized (and 1 reshaped as it had gone oval). Spoke to Caitlin who was very helpful. Dropped them off at 11am today, both ready to pick up by 3.30 this afternoon. Both fit perfectly and were so clean and shiny!
Caitlin was fantastic, and even said I could pop back it over the next few days they felt too big or small and they would adjust for no extra cost!
– Helen P
Had some inherited jewellery to sell and Liam was helpful and honest – can definitely recommend!
– Sophie Louise Baker
We have purchased from here before and have done again today. The staff are exceptional they spend all the time and give great advice top marks 10/10.

Bought a ring with my 50th Birthday money, I was lucky enough to have received a generous amount of money for my birthday. I’d been looking for a second hand ring and went to Farringdons. The service was really friendly and although my budget wasn’t huge in jewellery terms, I have a beautiful diamond and sapphire ring which I am delighted with. It needed resizing so to save a return trip it was delivered by special delivery this morning. A very happy customer.
Very prompt in replying to book a visit, and we are so pleased with the ring 🙂 Resizing was also free and fast. Really excellent all round.
– David Seckington
I recently visited Farringdons with a small collection of gold bracelets and chains which I had not worn for many years. I came across Farringdons by chance and could not have found a better shop. The staff were very friendly and welcoming. Mark quickly and expertly assessed the value of my pieces (some broken) and offered me a lot more money than I had expected. I highly recommend a visit to this shop, whether buying ir selling. it was a great experience.
– Pat GoldLover
– john perrins
Liam and the team at Farringdons Jewellery provided a fantastic service and my fiance has got the engagement ring of her dreams (and one we would never have thought would have been in our price range!). I couldn’t recommend them highly enough, they’re knowledgeable, not too pushy, and seemed to have great insights on what we suit Libby’s tastes. The after sales care has also been great with free re-sizing, stone polishing etc. 5* for sure!
– Ryan Flynn
Great place and people.
Bought a lovely ring , great friendly service, nice people very helpful , recommended, lots of lovely jewellery.
– Kensanter S
Could not rate the service i received higher. I needed my vintage engagement ring retipped, resized and cleaned and it came back two days later looking brand new for a great price. Absolutely wonderful jewelers and i will not go anywhere else moving forward! Thank you so much!
– Ruby Harrison
Fantastic service!! Thank you so much for your advice about my wife’s engagement ring. We were worried the diamond had come loose and took it into Farringdons for advice. Liam was amazing and reassured us that the setting was in good order. I cannot recommend these guys highly enough!
– Paul Hickman
Took a solitaire ring to be resized on Friday Afternoon. This ring has a lot of sentimental value so we decided to go here. We are so pleased with it, The ring looks brand new and perfect fit. Would highly recommend. We travelled from Hampshire to have this done and would recommend the service that we received. Thanks so much for your help. We would travel again for any other Jewellery repairs.
Beautiful shop, wide variety of engagement rings. Caitlin expertise was very helpful to find the perfect ring. She understand what I was looking for and gave me great advice to pick the best one. If you are looking for a vintage and unique engagement ring, this is definitely the shop!
– Cedric Lay
Great range of jewellery at reasonable prices. Very friendly staff who re happy to help you to choose something appropriate. I’ll be back for sure.
recently went to Hatton Garden to buy my engagement ring and after feeling overwhelmed I sat myself in a coffee shop and looked at what was available online. I had seen Farringdons when walking around so looked on their website which was very easy to use. As I found a number of lovely rings online, I walked back to the shop. The service at Farringdons was fantastic. The staff were warm, welcoming and put me at ease. They located the ring I had found online quickly and were very knowledgeable about the different rings and their history. I would recommend Farringdons to anyone looking for a piece of jewellery.
I wouldn’t trust my rings with anyone else!! After searching for my perfect ring Farringdons jewellers delivered! Unlike others we visited they were so helpful and kind and made sure what I left with was my absolute dream ring! When I required a repair they kept in constant contact by email (as I can’t answer my phone at work) sent me photos of progress and reassured me at every step. Although it is really out of my way to take my ring back to Farringdons to be cleaned and I can get this done at any local jeweller I wouldn’t trust anyone else! They are amazing! I highly recommend!
– Kellie Hockings
Fantastic service! An extremely friendly, knowledgeable and smooth service. Right from the minute I first walked in they looked after me. Can’t recommend them highly enough.
Brilliant service, visited twice and on both occasions Liam was very patient and helpful. Finally got what i was looking for. I am not a fan of Jewellery shopping, but will defiantly be back. If you are looking for great service and great antique jewellery, this is the place to visit.
Delighted with recommendation.
We were recommended by a friend whose opinion we value and were not disappointed. Liam greeted us with a choice that fitted exactly to our requirements and was very patient and courteous as we chose. Am happy to pass on the recommendation.
I recently bought an engagement ring for my now fiance from Farringdons and if you are in the market for antique rings I would HIGHLY recommend them. My fiance absolutely loves the ring and I couldn’t be any happier with my experience with them. Liam and the rest of the team were so helpful and friendly from the start. Everything from explaining the different cuts (Old European vs Brilliant vs Old mine), to the history and the varying techniques used to make each beautiful ring. I also appreciated the flexibility Farringdons offer. For example, I initially put a deposit down on a 1930’s diamond solitaire ring, but then later switched to an Edwardian 3 stone ring after a change of decision. Being able to do this was a big contributor in my decision to use them for finding my perfect ring. There is so much more quality and craftsmanship involved in antique jewellery and really think you should at least visit Farringdons when buying a ring. You never know, like me, you may fall in love with the romantic history behind these rings. (Note: not the most romantic point but for those who are more price conscious, you don’t pay any VAT on antique rings!) Also you should definitely read some of Farringdons’ blogs, it’s a goldmine (excuse the pun) for learning about antique jewellery.
Very very helpful people working here. Although I didn’t buy anything two shop clerks were more than happy to answer my questions and even recommend some other stores that may have what I was looking for.
We highly recommend buying through Farringdon’s Jewellery from offshore. Living in a small country we had limited choices for antique rings. We contacted Mark, who did a wonderful job helping to find a perfect engagement ring for us. He listened to us, understood what we were looking for, then sent us links to view various ring options. We found Mark’s depth of knowledge of antique jewellery and technical advice really helped us with the selection process. We are thrilled with the timeless ring that he recommended. Thank you Mark.
Excellent antique Jewellery repair service
I am very happy to have found Farringdons Jewellery. I needed to repair an old diamond ring. It was missing a diamond of antique cut and the missing nest was filled with metal which needed repairing. I could not find a Jeweller who could source a suitable diamond replacement. I walked into Farringdons Jewellery on the off chance, just walking past. I was impressed my the attention of the staff and how quickly they found me the missing diamond and how skilfully they repaired the ring. The result is amazing! In summary: excellent service and superb craftsmanship. Thank you! My ring was given a new lease of life.
Would absolutely recommend-Super helpful and friendly staff who resized a new engagement ring beautifully in just a few days, thank you! I would definitely come to them again.
Bought an antique engagement and wedding ring here and both times had an outstanding and happy-making experience.
Lovely friendly atmosphere in the shop and you feel you are being given honest advice with the perfect balance between helpful information without being pushy, unlike many of the shops in Hatton Garden. Prices also seem very realistic for genuine quality, beautiful and unique jewellery, again unlike some of the other shops!
Made buying that special piece of jewellery enjoyable, as it should be.
Thank you to the professional and down-to-earth team.
– Desmond Lewis
The service here (in person and over the phone) was perfect in every way, the knowledge that was shared about my ring was priceless and I’ll definitely be going back for more pieces. Many thanks to Liam and the whole team.
– Lara Tunstall
Brilliant friendly & expert service, We purchased our wedding rings here, and Caitlin and her colleagues were so helpful. They gave us a lot of time and help choosing our rings, answering lots of questions, and when one of them ended up too small they resized it instantly at no extra cost, and also valued my engagement ring too. A lovely small shop, highly recommended, thank you!
– Emily D
Great Service! Both engagement and wedding ring have been purchased from Farringdons and couldn’t be happier! Liam and the team were extremely helpful and happy to take time to discuss through different options with you. A very enjoyable shopping experience!
– Nicola Corcoran
A genuinely friendly and helpful team. Caitlin helped us find the perfect engagement ring not at all pushy , tried a good number on and found the perfect ring, beautifully resized you can’t tell at all! Such a happy place to buy an engagement ring.
A large choice of jewellery definitely worth a visit.
A little gem of a jewellers in the heart of London. Thank You Liam for your patience and knowledge.
– Adele Towns
Sold my wife’s grandmothers engagement ring to Farringdons after a few other shops in Hatton Garden recommended them for this type of thing. Had a very pleasant experience, staff were super friendly, and I was offered a very competitive price. Would highly recommend.
– Mark P
Antique wonderland- Lina and I brought antique wedding rings for each other. Good selection, Liam was very knowledgeable and friendly. Lina got the discount she was looking for. We were able to buy at 1130am and pick up polished rings before 5pm. Although we didn’t need it as i understand they deliver overseas.

Great experience getting an engagement ring re-sized. Loads of honest advice on sizing as had been done wrong elsewhere. Sizing done in 24 hours and they kept me informed throughout. Great service!
– Jonathan Gallard
Went into Farringdons with my boyfriend on Saturday to purchase a special !! diamond ring, I had trouble choosing between one in a different shop and the one in Farringdons, all the staff were knowledgeable, friendly and honest as well as patient (went back and forth from the shop as I couldn’t choose) can’t thank Farringdons enough I came in as a girlfriend and came out a fiancee after him popping the question on one knee in the shop, thank you and we will be back for the next ring.
– Samantha Deacon
Wonderful jewellery shop. If you can’t find that special piece you are looking for, then give them a try.

Wonderful customer service. I had two rings made from separate diamonds. The jeweler was very patient in ensuring the design was just right and the rings look fantastic. Highly recommend.
– Catherine Glossop
Mark and his team were very helpful, taking time to explain the process, the value of the items we had and what they could do for us. Polite, trustworthy and fair, from the off.
– Amar Patel
– Alex Spiers
Purchased an engagement ring about a year ago, the staff were extremely helpful and knowledgeable. More recently, the ring had taken a knock and the fitting had come slightly loose so I took it back to be looked at. Liam, who I had initially purchased the ring from, was again very accommodating. The Jewelers did an excellent job with a lot of attention to detail, repairing and polishing before collection. 100% recommend them for anything Jewellery related.
– Kyle Bradburn
Excellent service, highly recommend.
I would highly recommend Farringdons Jewelry. They are a great family run business with very helpful, friendly service.
Liam was very helpful answering any questions I had about the pieces. He is very knowledge. He educated me on the cuts/style/quality/era of the different pieces.
– Meghan Fitzgerald
I came here to re-size and clean my grandparents’ wedding rings. In other places they told me it was either impossible or quoted me twice the money! I am very happy with the service and highly recommend.
– Verónica Martins
The team at Farringdons were great! Great customer service, very knowledgeable and I highly recommended them. I bought my antique / Edwardian engagement ring from Farringdons (which I spent months searching for…) and they made the experience so easy. I am definitely going back to them for my wedding band!
– Gemma Osman
Pleasant staff and nice jewellery!
All round excellent experience with these guys, cannot fault them. In my ignorance left it last minute to get a ring designed. After a mad week or 2 of frantically looking and travelling round many jewellers these guys shone through. managed to turn around a bespoke ring in a couple of days and the quality is exceptional would recommend to anyone. 5 Stars.
– Laurie Collins
I had inherited a lovely diamond and took it to Farringdons Jewellers to discuss setting options for an engagement ring to propose to my now fiancée with. I dealt mainly with Liam who was absolutely outstanding! His advice and knowledge was top drawer and the communication and customer service was brilliant. Liam and the team at Farringdons made a potentially stressful occasion really very enjoyable and the finished product is truly beautiful. I highly highly recommend Farringdons to anyone looking for something ‘special’. I will definitely be coming back to get our wedding bands sorted! Thank you Liam and team! Kind regards.
– Jack Jarvis
Thank you Liam for your help today, adding another safety clasp to my tennis bracelet. I appreciate your effort getting this done so quickly.

I’m very happy customer and I like to say thanks to you all especially Liam hicks who help me? I wanted to sell my jewellery and I had no idea how, I was very nervous but when I met Liam and the ladies they were nice and welcoming he went out of his way to help me and gave me a good value of my goods, so I wanted to say thank you and I will recommend to my family and friends if they want to sell or buy too go at Farringdons jewellery’s thanks again.
– Mrs Ubah ismail
Lovely staff and extremely helpful. Had an issue with a necklace and they wouldn’t give up until the problem was solved. Couldn’t recommend enough.

– Sarah Thompson
On my first visit to Farringdons, I bought an elegant 1940s platinum, sapphire and diamond engagement ring, and a glamorous 1960s sapphire and diamond spray ring for my right hand. I’ve since gone on to buy two exquisite Art Deco pieces, and to do three stunning bespoke projects with them. Farringdons are on our must visit list whenever we’re in London because they’re honest people who deal in quality antique and bespoke jewellery. I trust Farringdons enough to consider them our family jeweller, and I look forward to more beautiful things from them!
– Sage Crawford of Sage & Simple
A dynamic, young and creative team whose customer focus and attention to detail ensures not only a faithful following, but unhesitating recommendations.

Farringdons is world class and sits above all Jewellers at Hatton Garden. I am ever so grateful for the invaluable advice and service I receive regularly at your store, for many valuations and perspective purchases. I strongly recommend Farringdons to anyone considering buying exceptional jewellery.
– Dr Adam Ibrahim
We discovered Farringdons Jewellery on a trip to Hatton Garden and were stopped in our tracks by the exceptionally beautiful jewellery on display in the window: modern, antique, new and old. We were searching for an engagement ring and once inside, discovered Farringdons could make our engagement ring for us, which felt very special. We loved the quality and service of Farringdons and we love our beautiful handmade rings, complete with complimentary engraving. Nothing is too much trouble for Farringdons and we will definitely go back there for any future jewellery requirements. If you want to feel very special but at very appropriate prices Farringdons is the place to go! We really do highly recommend Farringdons.
– Mr and Mrs Gismondi
Given the expertise of Farringdons in antique and vintage jewellery, I chose them to remodel some rings which are old and have deep sentimental meaning to me. I am sure they often deal with customers who are spending more money than I was, but I was so impressed with the trouble they took, their knowledge of the jewellery and their advice on what to do. I was thrilled with the outcome and now enjoy wearing the products of their work. Truly fantastic service and great value for money. Thanks very much.
