Jewellery Quarter: Birmingham Vintage Fair and so much more

This event is in this delightful neighbourhood to highlight it's gems (excuse the pun) to the rest of the city. The Jewellery Quarter dates back over 250 years and produces half of all jewellery in the UK so to that end you are spoilt for choice. But the Quarter  is also highly residential with small creative companies in increasing abundance.

As Ian Braisby and the people from Ghost Walks will tell you, it's also steeped in history, not all of it eerie!

For the best insight, the people I turn to are the nice folks who put together the Jewellery Quarter website. Click to head right over there or head to their Facebook page that is filled with local facts!

Today, I've been looking at what the JQT's very own Fellow's Auctioneers do.

 Established in 1876, Fellows are one of the UK's leading auction houses. Known for providing an excellent customer service, Fellows understand that customers are individuals and therefore provide a personal service. How about getting that ring out from the back of your drawer and getting it valued?
