Asprey has been a purveyor of fine British luxury products since 1781 and a favorite of the royal family since it caught Queen Victoria’s eye in the 1860s. Though the historic New Bond Street premises were recently redesigned by starchitect Sir Norman Foster to give an updated, airy feel (think indoor windows and tall winding staircase), Asprey remains as devoted as ever to the classics: distinctive, masterfully crafted jewelry, luggage, and other accessories. Clientele is not all royals and aristocrats, of course, but expect a well-heeled (and graying) crowd.

WHY WE LIKE IT
It’s a must-hit, white-gloves-and-proper-manners London experience; Asprey’s distinguished service and distinctive collection offer a taste of a very British version of luxury.
GOOD TO KNOW
As in Victorian days, Asprey still specializes in bespoke services: whether you need custom jewelry, a fold-out mahogany picnic table, or a hand-tooled traveling trunk, they’re on it.
