The company has appointed Gavin Merrison and Philip Goodman, the current proprietors of Connoisseurs UK, to head up the team for its Irish expansion.

Merrison and Goodman will be representing Connoisseurs at The Autumn Gift and Home Fair, August 20 to 23, at the City West Convention Centre in Dublin; International Jewellery London, September 3 to 5; and other trade gatherings throughout 2017-2018.
