In the early 1960’s Larry O’Connell finished his apprenticeship and got a job working for Cartier as their sole engraver on Bond Street.

Realising his potential, he opened his own company in 1971, he formed O’Connell’s Engravers, in Maddox Street. As the company grew Larry, employed Terry Yardley and soon made him partner to create O’Connell and Yardley engravers. Their reputation grew and soon they provided services for most of the Jewellery Houses in Bond Street including, Cartier, Boucheron, Mappin & Webb and Asprey.
