We tried on over £1 million worth of jewels in one of London's most prestigious jewellers

  • Bentley & Skinner is a London based jeweller which has been buying and selling since 1880.
  • It shifts millions of pounds worth of items, including antique jewels, rings, and tiaras.
  • We tried on a £295,000 diamond and pearl necklace and a £100,000 diamond tiara.

We visited London jeweller Bentley & Skinner, which specialises in buying and selling rare antique jewellery.

Some of the items it sells include a £275,000 diamond ring and an 1890 pearl and diamond necklace worth £240,000.

Bentley & Skinner also makes jewellery inside its workshop, which is also located inside the store. Some items can take weeks to complete.

We tried some of the luxury items on, but are they worth the price?
