Features include Faberge, Zandra Rhodes, Push Presents and Salon QP.
The November digital issues of Professional Jeweller and WatchPro magazines are now online, offering readers the chance to browse the magazines, read the full articles and download pages with ease.
This month’s Professional Jeweller is packed with features including an exclusive focus on Faberge, following the takeover of the brand name by Peter Carl Faberge’s great-grandaughter Sarah. We look at how the brand is bringing Faberge’s tradition of high jewellery back to the world market.
We also delve into the world of so-called push presents – jewellery gifts or bespoke jewellery designs given to new mothers or mothers-to-be as a thank you for carrying the baby. It is already a big hit with retailers in the US, so Professional Jeweller editor Rachael Taylor looks in to whether it will be as successful in the UK.
Robbie McFadyen, managing director of Bdazzled the Jeweller in Scotland, tells us why the industry should not be so quick to judge Pandora, while Andrew Seymour meets design legend Zandra Rhodes to find out more about her costume jewellery collaboration with Adele Marie.
Be ahead of the times with our trend focus on fringing, our fireworks night-insipred Showcase pick and this month’s new products, including jewels inspired by Elizabeth Taylor from Gecko and a Romeo and Juliet-themed cuff from Bobby White.
In WatchPro this month we preview who to see and what not to miss at Salon QP at the Saatchi Gallery next week, including Bremont clocks handpainted by rock’n’roll legend Ronnie Wood and new brands including Schofield Watch Company, a new English brand making its debut at the show.
Assistant Editor Kathryn Bishop talks to Angus Davies for My Watches & I, with the Escapement founder revealing which watch made him fall in love with horlogerie and his dream timepiece list, including the Patek Philippe Minute Repeate and A. Lange & Sohne Richard Lange Tourbillon.
We also review the Hublot Key of Time and showcase must-have watch products this month, including an erotic platinum timepiece by Ulysse Nardin.
