I've written plenty of blogs over the years and you can probably spend day looking through them and colla...

When I Grow Up I Want To Be A… Jeweller

When I Grow Up I Want To Be A… Jeweller

One of the most common questions I get asked, other than "Where did you get your good looks from?" is "Have you always wanted to be a jeweller?" The short answer is no. However how I became a jeweller and how this happened was a bit by chance. Traditionally most jewellers in Hatton Garden, the jewellery centre of the UK, are in the business because it has been in the family for a few generations. The tradition of bringing your children into your business is something which happened quiet a lot y...

Have you ever wondered why grading a diamond colour starts with the letter ‘D’? Wonder no more.

Just recently, the President of the London Diamond Bourse, Mr Harry Levy, gave an interview to the World Diamond Magazine. In it he recalls how grading came about. Now being in the industry for coming on 25 years, I often get asked why the grading a diamond starts at the letter 'D' and not 'A'. I'm pleased to say that I give the same answer as Harry. Below is an extract from that article for you to enjoy. "Gemological laboratories were first set up as places to identify gemstones of natural orig...

Jewellery Insurance Explained –  The recent raid on the Hatton Garden Safe Deposit has highlighted the need for up-to-date insurance policies – and valuations

Jewellery Insurance Explained – The recent raid on the Hatton Garden Safe Deposit has highlighted the need for up-to-date insurance policies – and valuations

Most people will have heard by now of what may be the largest jewellery heist of the modern era. I am of course referring to the robbery of the Hatton Garden Safe Deposit during April 2015’s Easter weekend. The fact that the thieves have got away (for now) with hundreds of millions of pounds worth of diamonds, gold and jewellery, should have jewellery-lovers asking themselves some serious questions. Namely: Is my jewellery adequately covered? Is my jewellery valuation up to date? When did I last...

It's like asking someone what Covent Garden is or even Camden Town. We both know they are synonymous for their own happenings and it's t...
