    Asprey: The Asprey firm was founded in 1781 by William Asprey. The business was a high-end retailer of traveling cases and accessories before expanding to include magnificent jewels in the 20th century. The firm continued to grow in reputation spurred by its appointment as the jeweler to the English royal family. The company partnered with Garrad in 1995. The merger didn’t last long, dissolving in 2002. Asprey remains in the original New Bond Street site and caters to prominent customers throughout the world.
