Synopsis: Starting with an overview of the Jewellery Quarter's origins and development, chapters follow with personal narratives from those working in the Quarter today. Personal stories are followed by a series of individual and old established firms still at work today. Their stories include Deakin and Francis gold jewellery including cufflinks, Charles Green with diamond and gold production, The Acme Whistle Company and their world famous productions used by Police Forces and at Cup Finals, Toye Kenning & Spencer and their military insignia, medals and buttons, Thomas Fattorini Ltd, silversmiths, and medallists, Gladman and Norman with their military brooches and medals (including the new Elizabeth Cross), not forgetting The Assay Office and their hallmarks and The Pen Room which traces Birmingham's pen trade from Priestley and Boulton's day to date. Smaller jewellery manufacturers are not forgotten including those producing contemporary work such as Crescent Silver and Silver Birch. The work of the Jewellery Quarter Museum completes the story.
