The Asprey House of jewelry was established by William Asprey in Mitcham, a London district, in 1781. In the previous century, Asprey’s Huguenot ancestors immigrated to England from France where they were facing religious persecution. In England, their vast traditional skills in metalsmithing, leatherworking, and watchmaking were put to good use.
Following its heritage, its no surprise that this establishment later became one of the most renowned luxury homes of all times. The house garnered popularity owing to the superb craftsmanship and elegance clearly manifested in its creations.
In 1862, the brand’s reputation was boosted further when it was bestowed with a royal mandate from Queen Victoria based on its award-winning work at London’s International Exhibition.
Throughout the 20th century, the house spread its original business, acquiring royal appointments as silversmiths, goldsmiths, and jewelers. In the 1930s, the house moved to New Bond Street. Today, there are Asprey boutiques in New York, London, the Middle East, and in many parts of Asia.
The Asprey brand acquired a legendary name when it became the royal jeweler to the British Royal family and a number of foreign monarchies. Asprey luxury jewelry is a timeless paragon that is truly admired by all, such as the quaint British royal brooch; a platinum maple leaf covered with diamonds.
Diamonds are the forte of the house; glittering brightly on ornaments of platinum, silver, white, yellow or pink gold creating chic jewelry and adding a touch of class to the wearer. All kinds of jewelry: necklaces, rings, earrings, bracelets, etc, are adorned with precious stones. The Asprey House collections are highly alluring and irresistible for all women. Angelina Jolie highly impressed with the remarkable quality and finesse of Asprey jewelry, twice participated with the house in the designing of unique collections, once in 2009 and then again in 2011.

It is worth mentioning that Asprey is a member of the official network of Rolex watch distributors. Its customers are inclusive of English and Arabian royalty and political dignitaries.
