In a television first we go inside the hidden world of Hatton Garden, London’s historic jewellery quarter. For over 200 years, gold, silver, diamonds and precious stones have been traded here and turned into bespoke jewellery.
It’s an old fashioned world where deals are done on the shake of a hand and cash is king. A world populated by a colourful cast of wheeling dealing characters: from scrap gold dealers Johnny and Steve, to high end diamond trader Neil, to veteran goldsmith Michael, to Leigh who finds gold in the most unlikely places… like teeth.
It’s also where people go shopping for one of a kind jewellery pieces to celebrate life’s big occasions, whether you’re a millionaire businesswoman in search of an exotic necklace, or a lovestruck romantic looking to pop the question.
