On Wednesday 17th January we had the pleasure of attending the 2018 Country and Town House’s Great British Brand party at the stunning Hotel Cafè Royal on Regent Street.
For the past two years, Simon Wright Jewellery has been one of the 150 “British Success Stories” featured on the annual edition of the GBB publication, showcasing excellence in the various fields of British luxury.
We had some drinks with the Country and Town House team and had the chance to have a close look at the GBB cover dress. The dress is a bespoke piece created by Alice Temperley for the occasion and was auctioned during the event with all the profit going to charity.
We are already looking forward to next year’s party!!
The SWJ team was invited to an open evening hosted by The Gemmological Association of Great Britain and taking place on Monday 15th January at the of Gem-A London HQ, in the heart of the historic jewellery quarter.
The event consisted of a series of presentations by the CEO Alan Hart and the experienced Gem-A tutors who offered the chance of viewing different stones in the laboratory and learning how to recognize and be aware of “sneaky simulants”.
We really enjoyed the experience and had the chance of testing our knowledge: out of a bunch of fake diamonds, our skilled Jewellery Assistant Jenny spotted the only real diamond without hesitation!
The people from Gentleman’s Journal were in the workshop the other day finding out how 3D design and printing have changed the way we work, and the jewellery industry.
Is 3D printing the future of bespoke jewellery design?

We love making vintage reproductions. We are usually faced with designing vintage inspired engagement rings or jewellery but this time we had the challenge of making an Edwardian style hair clip.
