After Brexit, the show must go on

The post-Brexit dust appears, at least for the time being to have settled. Although the gold price shot up in the immediate aftermath, the pace of increase does appear to have slowed.

Now that the FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 have calmed down and regained their initial losses, it’s possible this will mean investors have decided there is no immediate need to panic-buy other assets and will have shifted their capital back to shares. I hope the gold price will have fallen a bit by the next issue of the magazine.

So it’s that time of year again, a huge swathe of the industry gearing up for the biggest and best show of the year: International Jewellery London. Jewellery Focus will, as usual, have a strong presence there, distributing thousands of copies from the Media Lounge and from our stand, and repeating our successful sponsorship of a seating area on the ground floor near the front entrance and all the coffee and biscuits.

Drop by, take a pew, re-fuel, and peruse our show coverage in the free copies we’re giving out in this chill-out spot. If you fancy meeting the editorial team, want to subscribe or have any questions for us, pop by our stand at P112 (upstairs) to have a chat.

We’ve got a jam-packed issue for you this month with our traditional Show Preview to help you plan your visit to Olympia, and make sure you do not miss any of the must-see collections we have highlighted. We’ve also profiled Luke Stockley and Henryka to shine a light on a new brand and one reaching its 25th anniversary – an interesting dualism to get a flavour of how new and established businesses see their progress and their future.

I wish you a great month of trading and a successful show.
