Hockley Mint adds Golden Touch to Winning Fairtrade ‘I Do’ Ring

BJA Competition winner Jessica Mead at Hockley Mint

Birmingham Jewellery Quarter business Hockley Mint is bringing life to an award-winning design in Fairtrade Gold, through its sponsorship of the British Jewellers’ Association’s (BJA) recent ‘I Do’ Fairtrade Gold ring design competition.

As sponsor of the ‘I Do’ competition, Hockley Mint will manufacture the winning set of two bridal rings by Jessica Mead, design assistant at Cambridgeshire jewellery studio Harriet Kelsall Bespoke Jewellery.

Jessica’s elegant design has a knot detail to the setting and shank of the ring, symbolising the love between two people intertwining and becoming one.

She is now working closely with the team at Hockley Mint on the design, which will be crafted in Fairtrade Gold and presented to her by Hockley Mint managing director Gary Wroe.

Gary Wroe said: “It’s great to see young designers entering competitions, and we are very pleased to make these rings by transforming Jessica’s unique hand-drawn design into CAD, and casting them in 18ct Fairtrade Gold; a service Birmingham manufacturing jeweller Hockley Mint provides for designer-makers.”
