The March 2015 issue of Professional Jeweller including our special Baselworld preview and the third issue of BenchPro is available to read online now.
This month’s issue is all about inspiring people, innovative brands and boundary-pushing technology, starting with an in-depth look at Pandora’s fiscal year results for 2014 and an insight into interchangeable coin concept brand Emozioni, courtesy of a guest column from its head of commerce, Adryan Cresswell.
March also marks Professional Jeweller’s 5th birthday and to celebrate we’ve included a special six page feature in this month’s issue, highlighting out trajectory from start-up company to market-leading magazine. Plus, we’ve included the kind birthday messages of our friends and colleagues in the industry; from IBB Dublin, Continental Jewellery UK, Chrysalis, Goodman Morris, Hockley Mint and many more.
The ‘Michael Kors effect’ is the focus of our next feature, with Fossil Group’s head of brand, Zoe Uhrmacher, guiding us through developments in the brand’s jewellery offer. We also asked retailers from across the country for their insights into the brand, and why it’s proving so popular with customers.
You’ll find the third issue of our specialist manufacturing magazine BenchPro inside this month’s PJ, with Weston Beamor, UJT Ltd and Cooksongold all under the spotlight and Maygem’s Steven May in the guest column hot-seat.
Returning to Professional Jeweller, this month’s issue also includes an interview with the duo who revived Orkney-based brand Ortak, and Thomas Sabo’s new head of wholesale for the UK and Ireland, Nick Callegari.
And there’s more to come, with Eden Rachminov of the Fancy Color Research Foundation sharing his view on fancy colour diamonds and Baselworld managing director Sylvie Ritter explains what makes it the greatest trade show on earth.
Finally, delve into our Baselworld preview and get a sneak peek of the jewels that will get everyone talking in Switzerland this year, including Graff Diamonds, Yoko London and Shamballa Jewels. Plus, we talk to industry insiders to find out their advice for surviving the long days, back-to-back meetings and tired feet.
