History

BCL Gemstyle LTD is our new corporate name registered in 2005. It superseded BCL Gems Ltd formally Bernard C Lowe & Co Ltd and prior to that Lowe Son and Price Ltd, which takes our heritage back to 1853.

The present owner Derek K V Smith started working in Hatton Garden in the mid 60’s supplying diamonds and gemstones to the Jewellery Trade.
In 1971 he purchased the business Bernard C Lowe and Co Ltd, whose reputation was renowned throughout the jewellery trade, including many overseas destinations, for supplying gemstones of different shapes, size and quality.

The company prides itself in its vast knowledge of all aspects of the jewellery trade, from mining to designing. To this day we cut and polish selected gems to create bespoke pieces.
