Currently studying Jewellery and Metal Design at the University of Dundee Angela Gillies, winner of the 2017 Ingle & Rhode Fairtrade Gold Design Award has had her winning piece hallmarked by the London Assay Office.

Angela’s winning piece entitled ‘Nestled’ has been cast and was taken to the London Assay Office to be hallmarked and stamped with the Fairtrade mark last week.

Made in Fairtrade 18ct white gold and set with a 0.5ct round brilliant cut Canadian diamond, Angela’s ring is designed to allow a wedding ring to tuck in underneath the feather, so that the two rings will sit flush with each other.

The finished piece will be loaned to Angela to exhibit at her end of year show and New Designers exhibition, before it is auctioned by Ingle & Rhode to raise money for the Fairtrade Foundation. 

Upon selecting the winning piece Tim Ingle, co-founder of Ingle & Rhode commented,

“Thank you to Angela for coming up with such a beautiful and original design. Thanks also to Adam at the Assay office for doing such a fine job with the hallmarking. These awards were set out to raise awareness of  Fairtrade gold amongst jewellery students, apprentices and those early in their jewellery careers, and I feel we have achieved that.”

Gillies has won a monetry benefit and an exciting work experience placement with Ingle & Rhode.

Upon her ever-growing success Gillies  said,

 “Winning the Fairtrade Gold Design Awards means so much to me and my career. The whole journey has been an incredible experience and I want to thank Ingle & Rhode as well as the judges for this opportunity - I can’t wait to exhibit it.”
