    Time Bandits

    SIHH is the highlight of my press trip calendar. You spend three days getting to look at, and sometimes even touch, some of the most incredible timepieces in a rather sophisticated setting. What’s not to love?

    New year's resolutions

    Much to the constant despair of Kate Donovan, my fabulous deputy editor and RJ’s resident online guru, I am terrible at blogging regularly. I blame the fact that I was a generation that grew up without the pervading presence of the internet (yes, I realise I’m showing my age with that statement). Blogging always feels like it’s the preserve of people with emotional incontinence not a legimate form of journalism.

    Did Dispatches get it wrong?

    What Catherine wore next

    In less than 24 hours Kate Middleton will have wed her prince in one of the most anticipated weddings of the last decade. Obviously, here at RJ Towers we are excited about the dress, the shoes and the vows (apparently Kate won’t be “obeying” William, which I am very pleased about), but what we’re really interested in is the jewellery.Kate has been pictured driving to her rehearsal yesterday wearing Links of London so we know she’s a classic girl when it comes to her ...

  • Jesper Velling uses unusual clasps

    Clasp feedback

    After my blog on Thursday, I’ve received some really interesting feedback via Twitter and had people commenting on the blog as well (thanks Elaine from Nicholsons Jewellers). Julia Velling also emailed me with a really great comment and some pics so I thought I’d post them here too.“I read with interest your blog on clasps this morning and have to say, I couldn’t agree more.  So many beautifully crafted pieces are well and truly let down by ugly, cheap looking clasps, ...

    Clasping at blogs

    One thing I am definitely bad about, as my lovely online editor Kate will attest, is blogging. I think it comes from being part of a generation of journalists into whom was drummed the rule that you always remove the writer from the article. The writer was a cipher; something through which the reader could understand a topic or find out about an issue, but not someonewhose opinion mattered.How things change. Confessional literature has gone through the roof and now ...
