The wonderful Sheffield company Carrs Silver have a great respect for their home and local history. The South Yorkshire city has been the UK home of silver for well over 200 years and it has been a centre for cutlery production since the middle ages. Into this environment, in 1976 the self employed jeweller Ron Carr set about licencing his wonderfully designed silver creations.
Fittingly, the following year happened to be the Queen’s Silver Jubilee, an occasion that Carrs celebrated by becoming a fully fledged incorporated company.
The company has been growing ever since, with Ron Carr still in the desk of chairman, alongside his three sons who help manage and organise all of the activities of an internationally recognised and respected brand.
