A Touch of Silver is a family business with nearly forty years experience in the jewellery trade. The founder Mark Gates was inspired to become a jeweller from a very young age with an interest in minerals and fossils. Stone cutting, creating and designing jewellery whilst still at school l was destined for only one career.
Learning my trade at Sir John Cass Jewellery College in London and working for a top West End jewellers for three years has set me in good stead to start my own jewellery company. Back in 2008 with the influence of my wife Josie, A Touch of Silver was formed. Specialising in equestrian and countryside themed jewellery we have been exhibiting at dozens of horse shows and county shows up and down the country (and further afield).
A recent addition to our team is our lovely daughter Emma whom has recently left school. Emma has been invaluable in bringing our new website into the twenty first century and has had a big influence in the trend, fashion and technology side of the business.
