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 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 bespoke work, certified diamonds and 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 latter half of the twentieth century.
We also offer contemporary and bespoke pieces crafted on-site by our master goldsmith using the latest technology and top quality materials.
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?
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!

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.
