Mappin & Webb is a true British treasure with over 245 years of tradition and historical significance in the world of silver and fine jewellery. It is a story that began in 1775, when Jonathan Mappin opened a workshop in Sheffield. His mission was to create the most beautifully crafted silverware for British society. Over the immediate years that followed this would see the company expand internationally, receive Royal Warrants and commissions from Monarchs around the world, and become synonymous with excellence, craftsmanship and all things truly British.

Mappin & Webb have been silversmiths to all the United Kingdom’s sovereigns since 1897. We have served five monarchs over a continuous period of 125 years. Today we continue as Jewellers, Goldsmiths, and Silversmiths to her late Majesty Queen Elizabeth and as Silversmiths to His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales.
