Specialist jewellery PR agency Facets PR has announced its plans to empower women within the jewellery sector with a special event.
The company, which is an all-female business, is set to host an event on International Women’s Day designed to highlight female entrepreneurs across the world who are making waves in the jeweller sector.
The event, which will be taking place on March 8 in London, will be hosted by Facets PR and supported by the Women’s Jewellery Network. The day will include an exhibition of jewellery and talks from inspirational women jewellers.
The event’s keynote speaker will be Jennifer Ewah, whose jewellery brand Eden Diodati is designed to empower women who are survivors of the Rwandan genocide who can now earn a fair wage by producing jewellery elements.
Other participants from around the globe include jewellery designer and advocate of ethical diamond jewellery, Satta Matturi, who manages a fine jewellery brand based in and inspired by Africa, Sif Jakobs from Denmark’s fastest growing jewellery brand Sif Jakobs Jewellery and from Sweden, Jemima Hargreaves, of ethical brand Hargreaves Stockholm.
The event is also set to boast a selection of jewellery brand owners from the UK and Ireland, including award-winning UK designer and ethical jeweller Alexis Dove, and Elina Faurschou of Phine London.
Founding director of Facets PR, Sarah Carpin said: “This is a great opportunity for women in the jewellery industry to come together and tell the UK media about the fantastic success stories that they share.
“Empowered, self-purchasing women are looking for jewellery that speaks to them – designed by women, for women. This event is a celebration of that fact and to gain nationwide media exposure for some of the best and the brightest women in jewellery today.”
