Ogden of Harrogate celebrate 125 years

Luxury Yorkshire Jewellers’ Ogden of Harrogate, are delighted to be celebrating 125 years as a family business in 2018. To mark this special year Andrew Jones, the MP for Harrogate and Knaresborough, is paying a special visit to the premises they have occupied since 1910, at 38 James Street, Harrogate.

Mr Jones, who lives in Harrogate, is keen to show his support for this well respected family business, of which The Ogden family have been stewards since 1893, serving the families of Yorkshire as well as generations of both royal and public figures.

Mr Jones comments: “Harrogate is renowned for family businesses – many of which are iconic worldwide brands.  It is a mark of the esteem in which local people hold those family businesses that so many of them are flourishing after well over 100 years.  Ogden of Harrogate is a brilliant example of a family business that has become synonymous with Harrogate but is well-known well beyond the town’s boundaries.   It combines 21st century customer service with respect for its history and heritage.  I am delighted to be helping them celebrate their 125th anniversary.”

During his visit Mr Jones will enjoy a tour of the beautiful Edwardian premises, originally established in 1893 by James Roberts Ogden, which still retains the distinctive black and gilt frontage, whilst the interior showrooms feature many of the original 19th century fixtures and fittings

Ogden of Harrogate is now run by brothers’ Ben and Robert Ogden. Before joining his family’s historic business, Ben Ogden FGA began his career at the great jewellery and auction houses of Boodles, Spink, Bonhams and Christies.  He is now responsible for sourcing Ogden of Harrogate’s fine jewellery collections.  Robert Ogden took a different route into jewellery, enjoying an international career as an opera singer and running music festivals and a record label, before moving to Harrogate in 2009.

They have an exciting history with their founder James Roberts Ogden, documenting the jewellery whilst working with Lord Carnarvon and Howard Carter on the discovery of Tutankhamun’s tomb in 1922.

Ogden of Harrogate have three shops including their original beautiful Edwardian premises at 38 James St, Harrogate HG1 1RQ as well as Ogden Harrogate in the heart of York, at 2-6 Minster Gates, York YO1 7HL and The Little Diamond Shop, 15 Lendal, York YO1 8AQ.
