YOU’LL be be pleased to dis­cover that es­teemed jew­eller and sil­ver­smith Map­pin & Webb is as proudly Bri­tish today as when the doors first opened in Sh­effield 241 years ago. Jonathan Map­pin launched his work­shop in 1775, pro­vid­ing el­e­gant sil­ver­ware for af­flu­ent Bri­tish so­ci­ety fig­ures, and the com­pany, which holds a Royal War­rant, today crafts sil­ver­ware to mark many key so­cial and his­toric events, cel­e­bra­tions and race days. Com­mis­sions come from around the globe and the list of past cus­tomers reads like Kelly fre­quented the Edinburgh bou­tique and Win­ston Churchill had his pocket watches ser­viced by the firm’s watch spe­cial­ists. The Royal War­rant was first granted in 1897, by Queen Vic­to­ria, af­ter she com­mis­sioned Map­pin & Webb to cre­ate her Golden Ju­bilee neck­lace, and, today, the com­pany holds a Royal War­rant as Jew­ellers, Gold­smiths and Sil­ver­smiths to Her Majesty The Queen and as Sil­ver­smiths to His Royal High­ness The Prince of Wales. Map­pin & Webb con­tin­ues to be recog­nised for its time­less sil­ver­ware as well as for stock­ing the finest lux­ury Swiss watch brands—from Patek Philippe and Rolex—but it has moved seam­lessly into the mod­ern age with de­light­fully fem­i­nine jew­ellery and is proud to be seen as an ac­ces­si­ble brand in the lux­ury world. De­signs are in step with mod­ern Bri­tain, but echo its rich her­itage.

In the com­pany’s new­est bou­tique, on Lon­don’s Re­gent Street, the car­pet is plump, the chan­de­lier twin­kles and there is al­ways a glass of the finest Cham­pagne on of­fer for those seek­ing the per­fect piece of jew­ellery.
