Sharps Pixley

Unknown.jpeg

The Sharps Pixley name goes back to 1778 and was originally founded through the merger of two London bullion businesses. Sharps Pixley was formerly a central player in the London Gold and Silver bullion broking community as an original gold fixing member and chairman of the silver fix.  The company name expired in 1995 but was revived in 2010 following the purchase of the company name and the trade mark from the former owner of the business, Deutsche Bank, thereby providing a link with the original firm. Today Sharps Pixley are  setting out to simplify and demystify the gold market  and to expand the reach of precious metals making them more comprehensible and creating new ways for people to invest in them.  Join us for an exclusive early evening visit and tour of their flagship showroom in St Jame's and a talk about Bullion,  while enjoying drinks and canapés,  Meet at 6pm. Members £15 - Guests £20

The salon, which is located just inside the entrance at Sotheby's New Bond Street, presents High Jewellery, unique and exceptional creations. The underlying inspiration of Art in the jewellery designs is symbolised by the continuous presence of an original artwork in the salon.
