1851 – Samuel Smith opens his first jewellery shop in south London, which would be the start of what is today Smiths Group. In 1872, the family firm expands into the fashionable West End when his son, Samuel Jnr, establishes himself as a diamond merchant with several jewellery stores on the Strand, meters from where the Savoy Hotel would be built a few years later.
