In 1890 the firm was making gold, silver and gem, jewellery working in all aspects of the trade - gilding, plating, refining, assaying, electroplate manufactory and silver-plate making. In 1899 Robert Pringle II took into partnership his eldest son Robert Pringle III and the firm became Robert Pringle & Sons.

In 1931 the firm was converted into a limited liability company under the style of Robert Pringle & Sons (London) Ltd.
