Mappin & Webb was founded in 1775 when Jonathan Mappin opened a silver workshop in Sheffield, then as now a major centre of the English silver trade.
 
As a natural progression from silverware, Mappin & Webb created jewels for royal courts across the globe, from the Queen of France Marie Antoinette, to the Empress of Russia and Pricness Grace of Monaco. The brand historically held Royal Warrants to both the Russian Empire and the Japanese Royal Household.
 
Queen Victoria was the first Monarch to commission Mappin & Webb. Her Majesty's Golden Jubilee necklace was created by the house in 1888 and was designated by the Monarch as an heirloom of the crown.
