My interview with British Academy of Jewellers

My interview with British Academy of Jewellers

Recently I was interviewed by the British Academy of Jewellers (BAJ).  You can read the interview below or check it on LinkedIn. Enjoy! BAJ: Tell us about your career and how you have reached where you are today. LM: I started my career as a 16-year-old apprentice. I worked at the bench pretty much my whole career.

Diamonds are Forever, Forever, Forever

Diamonds are Forever, Forever, Forever

    Diamonds are Forever, the 7th James Bond movie, was released in the UK in December 1971. Fifty years later I take a walk down memory lane. I can’t say I remember it,  I wasn’t born until a few years later. I was told by my dad, that back then it was as big a deal. As big a deal as a new Bond movie is released today.

What Black Friday?

Items like TVs game consoles. A lot of electronic products. Products which are the same price nati...

A Diamond from the Rough

A Diamond from the Rough

And the qualities vary so much. It turns out only 15% of all diamonds mined, are good enough to be used in jewellery! The rest of the diamonds are not thrown away. There is a use for them too. Don’t forget, diamonds are the hardest natural substance in the world. As a result of this, only a diamond ca...

How to Remove An Engagement Ring Stuck On Your Finger

How to Remove An Engagement Ring Stuck On Your Finger

My engagement ring is stuck on my finger!  It happens. Sometimes it’s an easy fix. Other times it’s a bit more involved. It can happen to men and women alike. It doesn’t discriminate and it’s not always obvious. But it does happen.  I am of course talking about rings. To be more specific, rings that are stuck on the finger, and which have no chance whatsoever of coming of. At least not in the conventional way. You’ve tried it all. Soap and water. Dunking your hand in vegetable oil. Using the str...
