Richard Vinten, Design for industry 2010-2011, first class honours
Design for industry is the perfect name for course; it definitely got me ready for stepping out into the real world that is the jewellery industry. The School is an excellent social place, in the perfect location with many links to the jewellery trade, and lots of experienced and motivating staff.
Charles Benoliel, HND Jewellery and Silversmithing, now Quality Control and Development Manager at De Beers Diamond Jewellery Ltd
The School has an excellent reputation here in London for giving people the technical skills needed. My experience and training has allowed me to progress in my role at De Beers through technical knowledge and understanding.
Claudia Anne Noble, HND Jewellery and Silversmithing 2013
Fantastic teaching from brilliant staff and technicians who always went above and beyond to help students realise their full potential! I had the most rewarding two years of my life on the HND and I cannot recommend the course highly enough. It provided me with the skills to work in the real world.
Jenna Tsang, Design for Industry
The time I spent at the School of Jewellery was the best experience I’ve had in my educational years. There was a great learning and social environment; the tutors were amazing, they provided the knowledge I needed to start my professional career. I’m proud to be a graduate of the School of Jewellery.
Fei Liu, Silversmithing (2001), Alumni of the Year 2010
I still remember my first day of studying at the School of Jewellery. It had a huge influence on me. Arriving in the West opened my eyes to all sorts of exciting things I wasn’t aware of in western culture, such as contemporary art, the Bauhaus, Art Deco and post-modernism. And, of course, I learned about all the great landmarks in jewellery history such as the work of John Donald.
Helen Dobson, Design for Industry
Studying both the HND and Design for Industry courses gave me the skills, knowledge and understanding I needed to begin a career in this challenging industry. Since graduating I have continued to learn constantly but the ongoing support from the School of Jewllery team is really what has given me the confidence to succeed.
