As a Fellow of the Institute of Professional Goldsmiths Mark was very pleased this month to promote the Hidden Treasures Exhibition for the IPG. The Exhibition runs until 3 May so you still have time to visit; to find inspiration for that special piece of jewellery. Their motto “excellence as standard” says it all, but find out more about this prestigious organisation by following this link http://www.ipgoldsmiths.com/
If you haven’t been able to get down to London to the Exhibition, you can always call in to chat over your ideas with Mark.

GEMSTONE OF THE MONTH IS EMERALD
The ancient Romans associated the emerald with Venus, the Goddess of love.
It is also connected to being truthful – true love. It is certainly the stone for lovers as it is said to attract love harmony, abundance and resilience.
It’s no surprise then that it is the gem of choice for 20th and 35th anniversaries.
HOW TO CLEAN YOUR EMERALD
It’s a good idea to clean your emerald two or three times a year.
You should never ever use chemicals or ultrasonic machines to clean an emerald. Neither should you clean it using heat in any way.
Be aware of using chemicals when wearing your emerald; be careful when using cleaning products.
You can clean your emerald with warm soapy water, rinse it, let it dry and then rub it with a very soft cloth.
If you have diamonds in your piece then you we can recommend using a Diamond Dazzle Stik [sic] to bring back their sparkle. £10 from Mark Lloyd Jewellery.
If you want that professional finish, with no danger of dislodging any of your gems, then bring it to the experts at Mark Lloyd Jewellers. Prices start at £25.
Big News for our May Newsletter month is about …
Lisa has been working for Mark Lloyd for some time now. She’s always wanted to transform her unwanted jewellery into something special.
After an initial consultation with Mark and Michelle, Mark designed and created this beautiful ring. Her old broken and tired rings were melted and forged into a new, unique rustic design.

It’s worth remembering that H Lamb has long been known as `the place to go’ when you want a special piece of jewellery. Mark Lloyd Jewellers continues to be known for quality pieces. Before Mark made a name for himself as a talented independent jeweller he learned his trade years ago as an apprentice at Lambs. Master Goldsmith Mark Lloyd is now a leading light in the world of independent jewellery design both at home and abroad, first as Mobeus and now Mark Lloyd Jewellery.
