The April 2016 edition of Professional Jeweller is now available to read online, featuring Gemporia’s gorgeous SS16 silver collection as our cover image.
This edition features our Baselworld review, with an exclusive show diary courtesy of assistant editor Stacey Hailes, as well as the top trends of the event and our team’s favourite jewellery picks.
We speak with John Nichols, chief executive of H&T Pawnbrokers, to better understand the jewellery side of pawnbroking (p.20). Elsewhere, we meet the wonderful and talented Alexis Dove at her Lewes store (p.27), and we assess the shiny world of branded silver jewellery, analysing its performance over the past year with the help of industry experts.
We explore the incredible talent on display at the Goldsmith’s Craft & Design Council awards(p.39), and get an exclusive insight into online selling platform Not On The High Street (p.23).
We’ve also got all of the usuals for you to enjoy, as well as a special feature on the diamond industry and Signet’s Responsible Sourcing Protocol (p.35), which we report exclusively on after attending a roundtable of industry frontrunners.
