Candice De Vine

Assay Office apprentice

The Goldsmiths’ Company Assay Office

DOB 10/09/94 Age 21

21-year-old Candice De Vine was the first female to become apprenticed to the Goldsmiths’ Company London Assay Office in 2012. Alongside learning all the skills associated with the Assay trade, De Vine undertook part-time practical skills training at The Goldsmiths’ Centre, allowing her to become the first Assay Office apprentice ever to not only hallmark their Masterpiece (the piece of work produced in an apprentice’s final year to illustrate their skills learnt), but to also make their Masterpiece.

Now in the final year of her apprenticeship, De Vine is at the forefront of the Assay Office’s drive to develop upcoming talent. As a technician, she already understands every area of assaying and is working towards a future as a manager of the London offices, which includes branches in Goldsmiths’ Hall, Hatton Garden and Heathrow Airport. As a young ambassador for the industry, De Vine was invited to 10 Downing Street in 2014 to promote the craft and help raise support and awareness for the Government’s Trailblazer programme for apprenticeships.
