Constantine & Floyd

Alfred Constantine and William Henry Floyd initially had their business at Caroline Street, Birmingham. The marks were registered at Birmingham, London and Chester. John Culme relates in his Directory of Gold & Silversmiths, Jewellers & Allied Traders 1838-1914, that Alfred Constantine & William Henry Floyd were described in 1900 as wholesale jewellers and factors and that they established their business in 1903 at 14, Regent Place, Birmingham. The firm was incorporated as a limited liability company in 1901 under the style of Constantine & Floyd Ltd. They opened a branch in 1903 at 45, Hatton Garden, London. Constantine & Floyd Ltd were eventually absorbed in 1931 by H. Williamson Ltd.
