Walter Bull & Son has a heritage spanning over 200 years. Established as a business in 1815, it was located in Theobalds Road, WC1, London, primarily as a pawnbroker but also as a retailer of jewelry and silver.

However, it was not until 1907 that the business was formally registered and traded under the name Walter Bull and Son. In 1941, the shop was bombed during the blitz and the business, complete with all the stock, was moved to Horsham, Sussex where it was run by Horace Sidney Bull (Walter Bull's Son). When Horace passed away, the business was left to his daughter, Jean Gegg nee´ Bull, who together with her Husband, John Gegg, moved the business to the market town of Cirencester in 1960. John Gegg retired in 1980 and his Son, Robert Henry Gegg, took control and ran the business until 2016.

The managing director and great, great grandson of Walter Bull is James John Gegg. With over a decade of experience in the City, James has worked in Global Financial markets and more recently, re-trained as a Diamond grader. James has a particular interest in unusual stones and unique antiques pieces.
