Professional Jeweller’s office was broken into last night, with laptops and other vital computer equipment stolen.

Police have attended and are investigating this morning.

Professional Jeweller is one of ten titles in the Promedia stable, and the office has a team of 20 people. Most are working remotely today and trying to minimise disruption to their usual workload.


“Nobody was hurt, but we are all so dependent on technology these days that this is going to slow us down a bit,” says Rob Corder, editor of Professional Jeweller’s sister title WatchPro and managing director of Promedia.

“We will be back to our usual news alert feed as soon as we can, but please be patient with us,” adds Professional Jeweller editor, Stacey Hailes, who was one of many to lose her laptop during the break-in last night.
