Goldsmiths Craft & Design Awards

Keen to encourage the next generation of jewellers to work to the highest standards, Catherine provides the opportunity for all team members to become involved in competition work as it strengthens the motivation to improve a variety of skills that benefit both the company and the team. It is important to recognise that, without the support of the other jewellers and apprentices, it would not be practical to commit the time needed to entering such events.

Recent Awards

Continuing in her Mother's footsteps, Vikki Freeman, designer and daughter of Catherine Best has been awarded Gold in the prestigious Goldsmiths' Craft & Design Council Awards in the Production Jewellery category for this truly unique Effervescent collection

Effervescent has been recognised and rewarded as an excellent design that can be successfully manufactured using production techniques. Vikki's design has been drawn using CAD (Computer Aided Design) and then 3D printed in various precious metals. The innovative and creative design allows for a double-sided and customisable piece of jewellery. Different stones can be set with diamonds on either side of the pendant producing two designs in one.
