Retail Jeweller’s 30 under 30 Initiative 2019 honours Goldsmiths’ Centre trainees and alumni

Today Retail Jeweller in association with Thomas Sabo announced its 30 under 30 Rising Stars of the jewellery and silversmithing industry, which officially celebrates those making outstanding contributions to the businesses they work for.

Now in its fifth year, the initiative profiles 30 of the brightest talents, aged 30 and under, celebrating them across five separate categories and invites them to an exclusive networking breakfast in London. Here they get the chance to network and hear from a panel of leading industry experts who will discuss career development opportunities within the trade.
