Obituary – Val Fuller

Valerie Fuller, who sadly passed away recently, started her provisional working life on the other side of the road from the Jewellery Quarter in the wages department of Joseph Lucas.

Her first job in the jewellery trade was with the Findings Manufacturer H.A. Light where she became the P.A. to the Managing Director Peter Light and helped him to build up the company into the largest findings manufacturer in Europe.

She left H.A. Light to run the English office of a Dutch silver jewellery importer.

Even when she was working outside the trade she always kept in touch with the jewellery trade. For many years she was a regular guest at the jeweller’s ball and she was always seeing jobbers and traders getting things fixed and buying jewellery for friends and aquaintances.

When Val came back into the trade she worked for a number of companies helping many jewellers with their books and always getting things fixed. Her last job was with the Bullion Room helping to build that business from nothing into the company it is today.
