About

Since 1953, Merrell Casting has offered jewellery manufacturing services in Birmingham's historic Jewellery Quarter.

Our Heritage

In 1953, the first generation of the Merrell family set upon an idea to create a specialist casting company in the heart of Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter. Their goal was to offer the highest quality precious metal alloying, casting, jewellery finishing and bespoke services using unbeatable British craftsmanship.

Today, Merrell Casting is a leading A to Z service provider in the British and European jewellery sector with an unrivalled offering that fuses traditional skills with contemporary innovation. Over the last 10 years, we have invested huge sums in cutting edge technology to ensure Merrell Casting maintains its reputation as a go-to manufacturer.

Our Mission

We offer solutions at every stage of the jewellery manufacturing process. Our customers can expect precision casting, rapid prototyping, vulcanised rubber or cold silicone moulding, laser welding and mass finishing.

We take as much care over one-off, bespoke designs as we do large orders, giving you the option to build a library of master models, CAD renders and hand-carved waxes unique to your business.

Our Ethics

Operating ethically and transparently has long been part of our ethos at Merrell Casting. We are Certified by the Responsible Jewellery Council, operate as a Fairtrade Gold Ambassador and offer our customers ethically sourced Canadian Diamonds.

Our principles reach far and wide, covering the environment, the wider trade and, most importantly, the 85+ people that work for us. These values are a common thread that link what we do today, to the business founded by the Merrell family in 1953

Our British Made Promise

Since 1953, we have prioritised British craftsmanship and in-house production to give customers a viable, cost-effective and ‘British Made’ option for their jewellery.

We are a pioneer of the ‘Created in the UK’ initiative, led by the National Association of Jewellers (NAJ), and we can offer the special ‘Created in the UK’ hallmark to your pieces through our on-site Assay Office.

Backing British made jewellery

“Being British Made is not something we take lightly, and it takes commitment. From alloying all our own metals to designing complete white label collections, we work with our customers to show the breadth and depths of British craftsmanship.”
