The IJL preview edition, fresh store design and Amazon interview.
Professional Jeweller‘s largest issue to date is now available to read online, offering 96 pages packed with inspiration ahead of IJL.
This month’s magazine is devoted to all things new, with a 20-page IJL preview showcasing our pick of must-see designs at this year’s trade show. We also take a closer look at Fred Bennett’s re-brand and this year’s freshest design talent from the IJL and BJA’s KickStart program and Dundee jewellery hub Vanilla Ink.
The September issue also goes in-depth with store design and asks what you could do to refresh and revive you store, not only to meet customer expectations and present your products in a fitting setting, but to drive sales and create a brand identity.
We also meet Julian Exposito-Bader, Amazon UK’s head of jewellery and watch buying, to discover what he and his team are doing to shake up Amazon’s jewellery offer, working closely with emerging design talent, established brands and a swathe of fine jewellers to make Amazon a destination store for consumers seeking a curated offer in one place.
Professional Jeweller catches up with Carat* chief executive Scott Thompson this month, where he reveals plans to celebrate the brand’s 10th anniversary, as well as new design directions for its synthetic gemstone jewels.
If you want a taste of summer once again, head to page 78 and feast your eyes on our exclusive summer photoshoot featuring a selection of London’s hottest jewellery brands, including Alex Monroe, Missoma, Fernando Jorge, Katie Rowland and Mawi.
Don’t forget to check out this month’s trends, focused on the vogue for tiny charm jewellery – a sleek reaction to the trend for giant crystal jewellery. We discover those brands and designers going small and personal with tiny trinkets that hang as pendants, drop earrings and charm bracelets.
Finally don’t forget to check out this month’s Social Lite to see if you were seen on scene at events including Gem Alley’s Kettner’s dinner and the CMJ’s autumn buying event.
