Robert Garrard 11 (1793-1881)
The company of Garrard was originally founded by George Wickes, who entered his mark in 1722. Moving to more prestigious premises in Panton Street, Haymarket, in Central London in 1735, he was to become one of the foremost goldsmiths and providers of jewellery and luxury items to the wealthy and aristocratic of his time, with Frederick, Prince of Wales becoming an established patron.

After a succession of company owners, Robert Garrard 1 was to become a partner of the company in 1792, which was then run by Wakelin and Tayler, eventually taking sole control of the company in 1802. On his death in 1818, his three sons, Robert, James and Sebastian were to take over the company, now known as R,J. & S.Garrard. On James’ retirement in 1835, R & S Garrard became the new company name.

In 1830, the Garrards were appointed Goldsmiths and Jewellers to the King and, in 1943, Queen Victoria was to appoint them official Crown Jewellers. Between 1822 and 1881, the same RG registered mark was used by the company, denoting the name of the senior partner at any time.
