Oli Sutton, sales director at Charles Green, said: “Marcus will undoubtedly be a huge asset for Charles Green, and when I heard he was considering returning to the fine jewellery market, we moved very quickly to sign him up.

“He has a wealth of experience which will be extremely valuable, but most of all Marcus has a real passion for quality jewellery, and keeping manufacturing here in the UK.”

Sutton added that Charles Green is also taking on two apprentices in October to help bolster its UK workforce.

Benelli said of his new role: “I am thrilled to be joining Charles Green. It will be a privilege and an honour to represent the finest wedding ring manufacturer in the UK.

“I felt the timing was right to make a return to the fine jewellery market and I’m very much looking forward to working with new colleagues, new customers, and being part of the Charles Green team.”
