Three years after establishing Alabaster & Wilson, the company built a state of the art factory in Legge Lane, an area that has rich history with Birmingham's Jewelry Quarter heritage.

Soon after Alabaster & Wilson was founded, thanks to their highly skilled craftsman who worked with the best gold and diamonds on the market, the company quickly built up a discerning clientele of the late 19th century.

In 2012, Alabaster & Wilson celebrated 125 years of manufacturing jewelry in Birmingham's Jewelry Quarter. They commemorated the year with special pieces for the Olympic Games and the Queen's Diamond Jubilee. It is truly a sign of the firm's expert craftsmanship that their history dates all the way back to 1887, the year of Queen Victoria's Golden Jubilee, and today the company is going as strong.

Sporting jewelry is a particular speciality of Alabaster & Wilson, with horses and countryside motifs featuring in their designs.
