Holts to attempt world record during LJW

Design and making of ring to take place during Hatton Garden Festival.

Holts Academy of Jewellery has extended its support to London Jewellery Week (LJW), through its organisation of this year’s Hatton garden Festival celebrations, which will see a World Record attempt take place.

Holts will help to transform Hatton Garden for its annual street party and will host a world record- breaking attempt as a finale to LJW. The World Records team will be present at the festival to witness students and numerous members of the jewellery industry working together to continuously make the biggest quantity of silver rings to be sold in aid of charity, over a set number of hours.

A 10-place purpose built jewellery bench will be kitted with specialised equipment especially for the day and located on the street. The students will be making the rings in front of thousands of people visiting the festival in a production line style, rotating every two hours.

Holts Academy will also celebrate the launch of its new workshops in Hatton Garden and are offering a silver jewellery making taster session where attendees will be taught how to make jewellery in a professional jewellery workshop by professional jewellers.

Now in its fifth year, this free to attend Hatton Garden Festival is set to supersede its forerunners, with more than 10,000 visitors expected. The day will celebrate the heritage of the area with music and family fun, catering for all ages.
