About Us . Lionel J Wiffen

I started work in 1957 at 15 years old with a company called Higgins and Lee, where I completed a six year apprenticeship. In 1963 at 21 years of age I started my own company at 85 Hatton Garden.

Since that time I have had the pleasure of making some fine pieces of Jewellery for some of the top names in the U.K , which have gone on to adorn some of the famous names of stage and screen.

We make still make jewellery by hand and were one of the first manufacturers in this country to use computer aided design and rapid prototyping, which is now used extensively through out the trade. We sell jewellery to many of the top jewellers in the u.k from Aberdeen to the Channel Isles and because of our in-house designers we make commissions and one off pieces.

"I feel lucky to be a craftsman in a trade where it has given myself a lot of satisfaction and pleasure to many people, where every day is different and interesting."
