Delve into the world of Canadian diamonds with this month’s magazine.
Professional Jeweller’s August issue is now available to read online at the click of a mouse.
This month’s issue goes in-depth with a focus on Canadian diamonds, revealing the story behind the stones, the designers and brands working with them, their ethical credentials and demand in the UK. We also take a closer look at the premium commanded by the Canadian diamonds in both independent and multiple retailers.
We also discuss the launch of JGF-Europe, a new jewellery and gemstone fair set to launch in Freiburg, Germany, next year and timed to coincide with BaselWorld, asking whether another European show is needed and hearing from its vice-president about the benefits of visiting the show and what it has to offer.
If sparkle is your thing then head to page 35 of the digital issue for our Q&A with Nathalie Colin, the creative director of Swarovski who shares her thoughts on creating new collections, learning new skills outside and jewellery and why Blondie is the best music to design to.
This month’s issue also looks back to New Designers, picking out the trends, names to watch and award winners at this year’s graduate showcase in London.
Our Trends pages for August are devoted to the fresh take on diamond jewellery as structural, open work designs where precious gems are scarce. We showcase jewels by Myia Bonner, Guess, Lestie Lee and Husam el Odeh as examples of jewellers driving this trend towards the mainstream.
Don’t forget to check out this month’s new product pages, packed with fine and fashion jewellery for the new season including delicate ruby rings, pineapple jewels, feathered ear cuffs and trembling diamond earrings.
Finally, be sure to check this month’s Social Lite to see if you were papped at jewellery parties across the UK last month including Drakes’ Diamond Gala and WatchPro’s Hot 100.
