The stunning DESIRE Jewellery & Silversmithing Fair returns to London from the 2nd - 4th of March. This year's fair will be held at Kensington Town Hall, whilst the previous venue of Chelsea Old Town Hall is being refurbished. DESIRE offers visitors a fabulous choice of contemporary jewellers and silversmiths who have been selected for their superb and innovative craftsmanship, and have a genuine passion for the work they create. Visitors can see and purchase directly from an exciting range, from emerging British talent as well as more established designers and makers.

Exhibitors include jewellers working in gold, silver, platinum, palladium, aluminium, bronze, copper, titanium, cellulose acetate and glass, and incorporating gemstones, seaglass, buttons, pearls, glass, enamelwork, silk threads and beads into their work. Anyone celebrating a special occasion – perhaps a birthday or anniversary - may also like to speak to many of the makers about commissioning bespoke pieces of jewellery or silverware. Several visitors in the past have commissioned engagement or wedding rings at the event and, by working with the designer/maker, have been able to have input into the design and create something that is unique and means so much more. Many of the makers will also be happy to speak about remodelling old jewellery to give it a more contemporary feel.
Whether you are looking to treat yourself, purchase a unique gift for someone special or commission something for a special occasion, make a date to visit DESIRE in Kensington. Opening times for the event are 10 am – 5 daily, while admission is £6.
