International Jewellery London: a stunning success
Earls Court based in central London is the perfect location for one of the largest jewellery events in England: International Jewellery London. Situated not too far away from the infamous jewellery hub of Hatton Garden, visitors and exhibitors come from far and wide.
This is a great occasion to meet young and upcoming designers, such as Buttons & Co based in Dunhill, Ireland. First time exhibitor, Elaine-Sarah Comerford, is the inspired jeweller who had such fond memories of sewing buttons with her mother that she decided to continue the tradition and create jewellery from it.
If education is more your thing, IJL seminars cover important topics from diamond and gold prices to the future of e-commerce. Are you perhaps looking to go back to class? The Gemmological Institute of America is the right stand to go visit if you are interested in joining a course about jewellery making or diamond assorting. The director, Edward Johnson, will always greet you with a smile on his face and give you the best possible advice as how to proceed with your career path.
To understand how the whole process from design to wax creation to casting is done, Weston Beamor, based in Birmingham, is the all-inclusive company to service your needs. Positioned right in the heart of the jewellery centre on Vyse Street, they are known throughout the UK and Ireland for their professionalism and punctuality.
After spending one or even four days at this event, a drink is certainly called for. The only thing missing was someone to give all us women wearing high heels a foot massage.
This chic event is yearly, so if you missed it this year, keep the dates 1st September through to 4th 2013 firmly in your agenda. Know all the new trends before anyone else!
