Art. 481

Queensmith jewellers has unveiled plans to open a new design and innovation workshop in the heart of Hatton Garden, London’s diamond jewellery quarter.

With a commitment to responsible expansion, this innovative space marks an industry-shaking stride towards sustainability, utilising eco-conscious building materials and workshop fittings, to amplify the brand’s manufacturing capabilities while championing an environmentally-focused approach to growth.

Located opposite Queensmith’s Greville Street store, the workshop will reside in a newly refurbished building cornering the entrance to Bleeding Heart Yard.

The new space will allow the company to expand its manufacturing prowess within the jewellery district, providing state-of-the-art facilities to develop innovative jewellery-making techniques, foster the best and brightest jewellery-making talent, and accommodate the company’s growing production demands.

Due to open towards the end of 2023, the workshop will focus on pioneering advancements in local jewellery manufacturing.

Queensmith has made substantial investments in computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) technology, aiming to revolutionise jewellery-making automation, enhance manufacturing efficiency, and offer unparalleled product customisation to their clients.

Upon its full operation, the new workshop will enable the Queensmith team to grow to over 90 skilled professionals and handle the sale and production of more than 15,000 exquisite pieces of fine jewellery annually.
