Laura Lee Jewellery
42 Monmouth Street Covent Garden WC2H 9EP
Region: Covent Garden
Nearest Station: Leicester Square (0.1 miles)

12 Neal Street Covent Garden WC2H 9LY
Region: Covent Garden
Nearest Station: Covent Garden

AIL Says: Mango might be known more for its clothes than its jewellery but the Spanish retail giant buys some of the best trinkets around for its high street stores. You’ll find anything from rings to broaches in amongst the affordable range.

Tatty Devine
44 Monmouth Street Soho WC2H 9EP
Region: Soho
Nearest Station: Leicester Square (0.1 miles)

AIL Says: Tatty Devine is the original purveyor of vinyl jewellery. Often copied but never bettered, the stores in Covent Garden and Brick Lane appeal to women of all ages. Think magpie earrings, giant cherry bling rings and name necklaces.

Thor & Wistle
5A Club Row Shadwell E1 6JX
Region: Shadwell
Nearest Station: Bethnal Green (0.1 miles)

AIL Says: Thor and Wistle began as a collaboration between two small jewellery studios in Netil House in Hackney before the protagonists partnered up and opened a shop just off Redchurch Street in Shoreditch. The handmade rings, necklaces and earrings incorporate gothic elements and utilize old materials for the purpose of up cycling, which creates one-off pieces that are unavailable from anywhere else.

328-330 Oxford Street Marylebone W1C 1JE
Region: Marylebone
Nearest Station: Bond Street (0.1 miles)

AIL Says: The Australian high street stalwart is known primarily for its watches but it also stocks a healthy range of jewellery. Delicate charms, bracelets and earrings come in a range of materials such as silver, gold, suede and leather at affordable gift-friendly price points.

11 Calvert Avenue Bethnal Green E2 7JP
Region: Bethnal Green
Nearest Station: Bethnal Green (0.1 miles)

AIL Says: Mawi is all about the exclusive and the exotic. Having trained in New York for a stint, the store’s eponymous jewellery designer Mawi makes highly individual and covetable pieces. Prices are high but the design quality, the amount of handmade production involved and the scarcity of the items make them well worth the investment.

Britains Largest Fashion Store 216 Oxford Street Marylebone W1D 1LA
Region: Marylebone
Nearest Station: Oxford Circus

AIL Says: Everyone loves Topshop. And that’s because Topshop has everything one could wish for. Yes, it stocks jewellery but it doesn’t just keep one range for one demographic, it offers an all inclusive selection of necklaces, rings, broaches, pendants, earrings and charms from prices that start at rock bottom and head upwards. And what’s more, you’ll even find the odd celebrity designed collection.

Basia Zarzycka
190 Pavilion Road Chelsea SW3 2BF
Region: Chelsea
Nearest Station: South Kensington (0.3 miles)

AIL Says: A visit to Basia Zarzycka is like a trip into another world; a world that’s coated in dazzling colours, textures and materials that make you want to stay forever. That’s right, FOREVER! Vintage pearlescent pink bracelets, antique Mona Lisa pendants, opulent bridal earrings and Victorian trinkets line the overstocked shop. Bring your credit card, this place is one of a kind!

London Pavilion 1 Piccadilly Circus Mayfair W1J 0DA
Region: Mayfair
Nearest Station: Piccadilly Circus

AIL Says: Affordability and design collide in Accessorize, the high street store that has furnished thousands of teenage jewellery boxes. But the appeal of Accessorize’s playful designs and over the top garish copies stretches way beyond school discos. There is arguably nowhere better to find a quick jewellery fix in London than in an Accessorize store.

Hatton Gardens - for Jewellery
Hatton Gardens

AIL Says: Yes, we know that Hatton Garden isn’t a shop but that’s not going to stop us including it as our final entry. The dense population of jewellers in this ancient trading street makes it the ideal place to find a deal. You can find contemporary and antique, custom and bespoke rings for all occasions – usually weddings/engagements – and best of all, you can barter.
