Steven Stone is an internationally renowned brand, committed to providing contemporary jewellery of unerring quality. While this reputation is based on today’s service and expertise, it is reinforced by a story spanning more than 80 years.
The business was founded in Manchester in 1937 by Al and Henry Stone. Starting as bullion traders, it wasn’t long before the brothers diversified into precious stones and selling into the jewellery trade.
Al’s only son, Steven, entered the business at 16 and soon travelled to countries like Brazil and Israel, in search of the world’s finest diamonds and gems. These early adventures turned into regular trips throughout the world, sourcing the best authentic stones he could find.
After Al and Henry retired, Steven took over the business. His commitment to ethical sourcing and exemplary service saw the business move from mostly trade sales to the design, manufacture and sale of high-end jewellery direct to the public. Following early success and growing interest, the first Steven Stone showroom was opened in 1999.
In 2005, Steven’s sons started in the company and launched the website. After becoming directors in 2012, Zack and Max have overseen international growth and opened the first London store—all while staying true to the family values that inspired Al and Henry, way back in 1937.
