Talking about the event, which will change location in 2014 to Olympia, IJL event director Sam Willoughby said: “We’re incredibly proud of IJL as the show is such a special part of the jewellery industry and a major date in the calendar. So many fantastic designers and brands will be unveiling their latest collections only at IJL, ahead of the autumn/winter season and the following year, and there are some really outstanding plans for the event’s last year at Earls Court.”
