Stourbridge jewellers branded a 'hidden gem'

The leader of Dudley Council recently dropped by highly respected business, K Bassam Jewellers as part of his made in Dudley borough tour.

Councillor Patrick Harley called in to visit the business which has just celebrated its 30th anniversary.

K Bassam Jewellery Services is a family-run business established by Kevin Bassam in 1991 when he opened his first shop in Court Street, Stourbridge with the help of The Princes Trust. He then went on to open a Kidderminster branch in 2000 and a Bromsgrove branch in 2010.

Kevin’s knowledge of the industry is extensive, with a passion for creating bespoke one-off pieces of jewellery using various precious metals and gemstones. This has come from nearly 40 years of being immersed in the craft and he still has the same enthusiasm and drive today.

In-store, K Bassam Jewellers offer their customers the rare chance to see jewellery craftsmen at work in a traditional workshop environment. All of the shops carry out repairs onsite quickly and efficiently, with a lot of the repairs being done the same day. Leader of Dudley Council, councillor Patrick Harley, said:

"It was a real eye opener visiting K Bassam Jewellers. While they have all the top of the range equipment they still have those traditional skills which allow them to create and repair with such delicacy and precision.

"Andy is an incredibly talented artist and craftsman and his customers clearly hold him in high regard. This little shop offers such a wide range of services and truly is a hidden gem."

More information about the business including their online shop can be found at
