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 Josh Lane.
Manager, Lanes Jewellery of Holt
DOB 29/11/89 Age 25
Lane joined his family business, independent jewellery retailer Lanes Jewellery of Holt, when he was 18 years old. Prior to that, at the age of just 15, he completed a diamond grading course in Antwerp.
Described by his father and owner of the business Mike Lane as “having a great eye for up-and-coming designs and products”, Lane has developed from being the young lad on the shopfloor to a young professional who now has budgets to consider and regularly deals with clients spending in excess of £10,000.
He has learned practical skills at the bench and is able to take on some of the responsibility for workshop work and repairs, as well as managing the business’s social media channels and many competitions, which help to drive additional sales.
Lane also saw many of his ideas and inspiration brought to life in 2013 when he helped oversee an entire store refit.
