About the Shop

 

Vintage & Antique Jewellery

In Hatton Garden Since 1951

A.R. Ullmann is a well established family business based in London’s famous jewellery quarter, Hatton Garden. We specialise in Georgian, Victorian, Edwardian and Art Deco jewellery, as well as silver and objets d’art. Our stock is extensive, with items to suit most budgets.

1902

In Budapest, Hungary, Joseph Ullmann established a jewellery shop.

1920s

Joseph’s son, Andrew, joined the business. Joseph Ullmann & Son was created.

1938

The political situation forced Andrew to flee Hungary. The shop carried on trading until 1944 when the Nazis invaded Hungary. Consequently, the shop was looted and destroyed.

1951

Andrew, having emigrated to England, opened Andrew R. Ullmann Ltd. at 10 Hatton Garden.

1958

Andrew’s son, Joseph, joined the firm. Jeffrey Pinkus was employed by Andrew in 1959, and has been with the firm ever since. After his father’s death in 1975, Joseph took over the business.

2007

The shop relocated to its current premises at 36 Greville Street, just off Hatton Garden, where fourth and fifth generation Ullmanns help manage the business.

Today

The shop still retains its original character. It is one of the longest-established shops in Hatton Garden, and the only one to specialise in antique jewellery.
