John Titcombe jewellery

John Titcombe trained at the 200 year Birmingham School of Jewellery and Silversmith. Upon finishing his training he joined a small firm in Bath managing their workshop at 19. After a decade he decided to start his own manufacturing company based in his home city of Birmingham, on Vyse Street in the heart of the 'Jewellery Quarter' trading under the name of Anvers. The inspiration of this name came from the many trips John had made to Antwerp, the diamond capital of the world. Anvers is 'Flemish' for Antwerp.
