In Birmingham. The jewellery quarter flourished here for centuries : jewellery makers not only worked in small specialised workshops but also in large factories that exported their goods to all four corners of the globe. Rows and rows of jewellery shops featured jewellery from all the leading manufacturers in the country. In the "Museum of the Jewellery Quarter" visitors can watch goldsmiths and silversmiths at work in original jewellery workshops.
