Episode Nineteen- Rachael Taylor

Subscribe on your favourite podcast platform.

Renowned jewellery journalist, founder of The Jewellery Cut, and true industry insider - the brilliant Racheal Taylor joins Alex and Connie on our ‘This is a Token’ podcast amongst a background of seagulls in stormy Brighton for a chat about her favourite pieces of jewellery - spanning an eclectic range of innovative designers and makers. From a pair of illusory Hoop Earrings where clever design details are not what they first appear, to a treasured trilogy ring set with an emerald, diamond and sapphire which has evolved in meaning ‘after the fact’ to connect her to three very important women in her life.

Listen in, as Alex and Racheal discuss her fascinating career starting ‘by chance’ at Retail Jeweller, and going on to become the founding editor of Professional Jeweller, her passion for discovering and bringing to light pioneering jewellery designers across the world, and how she fell in love with the people across all facets of the jewellery industry, before she even fell for the jewellery itself.
