Goldmsiths' Fair 2023

Goldsmiths' Hall, London

Week One: 26 September to 1 October | Week Two: 3 October to 8 October 2023

Goldsmiths’ Fair, The Goldsmiths’ Company’s annual selling event for independently made fine jewellery and silver, has today announced the 136 craftspeople who will be exhibiting at Goldsmiths’ Hall, in the City of London, from 26 September until 8 October.

For more than 40 years, Goldsmiths’ Fair has provided both private collectors and international museums and collections with the opportunity to meet with, and buy pieces from, the most talented independent silversmiths and jewellers working in the UK. 

Split into two cohorts of 68 makers over two weeks, the 2023 Fair will welcome the return of master craftspeople including Castro Smith, Emefa Cole, and Fred Rich - specialists respectively in engraving, lost wax technique and enamelling - and introduce 10 new graduates including former Tiffany & Co. engraver Epona Smith and recent Bishopsland alumni Caitlin Murphy and Caius Bearder.

These early career makers - chosen by an esteemed panel of judges including Antiques Roadshow jewellery specialist, Joanna Hardy - have each received a grant of £1,500, an optional interest free silver bullion loan of up to £3,000, a free stand at Goldsmiths’ Fair and professional training from the Goldsmiths’ Centre as part of our graduate bursary scheme, established in 2000.

In 2022, Goldsmiths’ Fair welcomed more than 7,000 visitors to Goldsmiths’ Hall in the City of London - home of The Goldsmiths’ Company and the birthplace of Hallmarking. As part of the Company’s commitment to supporting the trade and craft, this flagship event saw independent UK based craftspeople make more than £3 million of sales between 27 September and 9 October 2023.

In addition to the 136 exhibitors who will be selling at the Fair, visitors will be able to enjoy a series of exhibitions that highlight important and interesting pieces from the Goldsmiths’ Company’s private collection. These include: Life and Legacy: Dorothy Hogg; The Art of Fame: Medals from the Goldsmiths’ Company Collection; and our latest acquisitions. Visitors will also be able to explore the Company's involvement in the Coronation of His Majesty King Charles III through a new display, “Crafting the Coronation” which will include a replica of the silver gilt buckles worn by The King, and the Cross of Wales which led the procession at Westminster Abbey.

Goldsmiths’ Fair Head, Harriet Scott said:

“Following on from the huge success of our 40th Anniversary celebrations in 2022, we are incredibly excited to welcome the UKs most interesting and talented fine jewellers and contemporary silversmiths to Goldsmiths’ Hall this Autumn. During the lifetime of the Fair we have had the privilege and unique opportunity to provide a springboard for hundreds of early career makers, and I am thrilled to be introducing 10 new graduates  to our visitors in 2023, alongside more than 100 master craftspeople. It’s fantastic to see the demand for unique, and independently hand-crafted fine jewellery and silver grow year-on-year, and with 136 exhibitors at this year’s Fair, buyers at all levels are sure to be spoiled for choice.”
