Subscribe on your favourite podcast platform.

The driving force behind so many of the actors, writers and directors we all know and love, (including household names James Corden and Luke Evans), the brilliant and hugely respected talent agent Ruth Young steps into the limelight and joins Alex on our ‘This is a Token’ podcast for a chat about her most meaningful pieces of jewellery. From a striking gold acorn necklace by New York designer Wendy Mink gifted to her by her husband, to her Grandad's solid gold medal won in a Snooker Championships in 1907 - Ruth is a true jewellery enthusiast with so many wonderful pieces (and accompanying stories) to talk about!

Listen in as Alex and Ruth have an interesting and insightful discussion about her love of jewellery, sparked by her father who gifted her a piece every birthday and Christmas, how in the world of acting disappointment is often the path to success, and how managing the career of legendary star of Hollywood cinema Lauren Bacall led to a passionate love for gold jewellery!
