Wartski

London jewellery specialists Wartski date back to 1865. They were founded in Bangor, North Wales by Morris Wartski and first set up a branch in London in 1911.

As well as jewellery, they also offer silver, boxes and works of art. They have a strong reputation for selling Fabergé and even made the wedding ring for Prince William and Kate Middleton in 2011.
