During this time I acquired extensive knowledge of diamonds and the diamond trade which included a period working in an Antwerp diamond cutting factory. In 1981, I was invited to become a Freeman of the prestigious Worshipful Company of Goldsmiths', and at the same time, became a Freeman of the City of London.
The Goldsmiths' Company is one of the Great Twelve Livery Companies of the City of London. It has a history dating back to the eleventh century. It received its Royal Charter from King Edward III in 1327. I was made a Liveryman of the Company in 1984.
My jewellery consists of necklaces, bracelets, pendants, dress rings, engagement rings, eternity rings and earrings which are set with diamonds, or which combine diamonds with precious or semi-precious stones. These can be set in platinum, or nine, eighteen or twenty two carat gold. Engraved signet rings and cuff-links are a speciality.
I offer a similar range of cultured pearl jewellery. Pearl necklaces and chokers (which may, for example, incorporate an antique brooch converted into a clasp) can be made in any length, knotted or plain. I keep a range of clasps in both nine and eighteen carat gold some of which are set with precious, or semi- precious stones.
