GOLDSMITHS’ FAIR is the ultimate one-stop destination for those seeking out jewellery and silver by the most exciting independent designer-makers in the UK. Established in 1983 the Fair has grown in stature and allure and is now considered to be the most important, prestigious event of its kind in Europe.
This annual selling event, which is open to the public, positively buzzes with talent, passion, creativity, innovative design and superlative craftsmanship. Forget mass production, Goldsmiths’ Fair is all about the bespoke, the original and the one-off. Each piece is hand-made by dedicated craftsmen in small workshops around the country and collectively the Fair represents months of intense skill and artistry.
For two weeks only, 180 inspirational makers from around the country, including 10 recent graduates who are given free stands by the Company in order to help them in the early days of their careers, come to Goldsmiths’ Hall to present their latest collections. The result is a dazzling display of virtuoso jewellery and silverware. The Fair presents an opportunity for the makers to talk to the public about their work, explain their techniques and inspiration. The two-way interaction adds a vital personal element to the whole process of buying, as well as making it more enlightening and educational.
