It’s a historic affair.

Jersey’s watch and jewellery industry has been trading on the island for over a hundred years, with an active auction and antique sector that is in possession of many historic finds. An Iron Age Coin Hoard was found in the island and dismantled by a team of experts who revealed gold torques that were contained within it – these along with many other interesting historic pieces are now in the care of Jersey Heritage and are available to view as part of the festival. They are a reminder of how jewellery has played such an important role in our lives for centuries.
