It is cliche but apt that customers are king. In the world of jewellery customers are everything- a fact F.Hinds duly recognize with positive reviews pouring out as testaments to this. The website is operated since 1997 and it has been part of the happy stories and awesome moments of its customers by delivering wedding rings, engagement rings, and branded collectibles. The company also focuses on recycling unwanted gold jewelry into new pieces at 100% of the value exchanged.
Headquartered in Uxbridge, the company was founded in 1856, in London by George Henry Hinds. Just after 1918 brothers Frank and William took their proportion from the business. While William Hinds went into theaters and cinemas, his brother Frank continued the jewelry business. In 1990, F.Hinds took over the one other shop owned by half of the family in Worthing, Sussex. Brands owned by F.Hinds include My Diamonds, the Night and Day black diamond and white diamond collection and the Kilimanjaro Tanzanite collection. The Responsible Jewelry Council is an international non-profit organization established to foster consumer trust in the jewelry industry. As part of F.Hinds’ commitment to better the industry, it joined in 2008. The company has about 1000 employees.
