Belonging to the Signet Group, H Samuel has the same owners as Leslie Davis and even Ernest Jones meaning that they have a huge presence in the UK and Ireland. For H Samuel, Harriet Samuel actually acquired a clock-making and silversmith business in the early 1860s but it wasn't until 1890 that the first store opened in Preston. Soon after, the name and idea took hold and more stores opened throughout Lancashire and in Rochdale.
Nowadays, they are famed for their many options for jewellery and boast over 300 stores across the UK and Ireland. As well as success in the UK, the Signet Group has also expanded into the US and now owns the largest retailer of jewellery in the country - Sterling. Within the last decade, e-commerce has also taken off for the site where they now offer home deliveries to everyone in the UK.
