About Aurum's founder Andrew Leggett had no idea where his career would lead after he left school at 18. It was by chance he took a summer job at a local jewellers and he never looked back since. From then, he wrote to top jewellery designer John Donald for a place working in his London workshop. It was here he learnt the true craft of jewellery making as he made designs for royals and celebrities. In 1985 he set up Aurum designer- jewellers to be closer to family and in 2001 he expanded into larger premises and took on two craftsmen. The shop doubles as a workshop and you will always be greeted by friendly goldsmiths.
