It is 40 years since Roger Curteis, who made his living as a farmer in deepest Shropshire, turned his hand to making jewellery in the attic of his house.
What began as a sideline to his livestock business quickly turned into a company that ran 20 chain-making machines.
By 1990 the Curteis jewellery business was turning over £2.5 million by 1990, and was joined by Roger’s two sons, Henry and Hugh.
Henry still runs the company today, and is building on its founding principles of competitive prices, innovative design and excellent customer service.
The 40th anniversary for Curteis is a perfect opportunity to celebrate its past and look forward to the future, which is why the company is delighted to be a Gold Partner at the biggest jewellery celebration of the year, the Professional Jeweller Hot 100.
“Curteis is very proud to be sponsoring the Professional Jeweller Hot 100 in this our 40th year in business. The Hot 100 provides a wonderful showcase for so many of the great talents making a difference in jewellery today,” says Henry Curteis.
The Professional Jeweller Hot 100 takes place at Freemasons’ Hall on September 7, the second night of International Jeweller London (IJL).
