Wedding ring and jewellery manufacturer Charles Green has kick started the year with the recruitment of a new gem mounter.

Following a successful 2016, the sixth-generation family business, based in Birmingham’s historic Jewellery Quarter, now boasts a strong team of thirty-four.

New gem mounter, Jayesh Parekh, has been brought in to work on bespoke and luxury pieces of jewellery and to help cope with the increased volume of engagement ring sales. Parekh began working at Charles Green in early January and was immediately thrown into the deep end working on one-off, bespoke pieces to be exhibited at Baselworld in March.


“We’re delighted to have Jayesh on board. He’s an exceptionally skilled gem mounter with a great background in jewellery making. He has already begun work on some beautiful, bespoke jewellery and we’re very much looking forward to seeing the finished one-off pieces he is working on for the Baselworld exhibition in March,” comments Charles Green managing director Oliver Sutton.

Parekh previously worked at Weston Beamor for eleven years and is looking forward to developing his craft in the new role.
