In Retail Jeweller’s first Rising Stars 30 Under 30 supplement we present the amazing young talent that exists in the industry. Here we look at Harry Coulston.
Jewellery apprentice, London Rocks Jewellery
DOB 27/12/94 Age 20
After joining Holts Academy in 2011, where he achieved Level 2 and Level 3 diplomas in jewellery manufacture, Harry Coulston was then hired by designer-maker Karl Karter to work as an apprentice at London Rocks Jewellery.
During his career at London Rocks Jewellery to date, Coulston has been nominated for two Holts awards, including Apprentice of the Year and Ones to Watch. Moreover, his jewellery appeared in ITV 1 show Diamond Geezers and Gold Dealers, which featured the best aspects of Hatton Garden craftsmanship and the London jewellery trade.
Coulston has designed and made several bespoke, handmade pieces, ranging from engagement rings to pendants and bracelets.
Described by colleagues as incredibly skilled, the mix of Coulston’s talent and his eagerness to learn has meant that he is now working with gold and platinum well ahead of the usual timescale for an apprenticeship.
