Toby Cavill: A Life In Jewellery - The Story So Far
Toby Cavill is a very busy man. When he's not on-air sharing his stories about a wide range of gorgeous jewels that he's sourced for Gemporia, he's out and about, all over the globe, securing more beautiful gems at shows like the Tucson Gem Fair. Here, Toby talks to us about Tucson 2022, our gradual return to business as usual and how we are all discovering our 'new normal' in the aftermath and continuing uncertainty of a challenging two years.
Visage with Kati Elliott
Kati Elliott's VISAGE collection has grown a vast and dedicated following since it first launched in late 2019. We haven't spoken to Kati in Gemology for over a year, so we thought it was time we caught up with her to find out what's new in the collection, how she creates brand new items, and all about her exciting new VISAGE website and book.
Regency Collection: 19th Century Style Revival
During the 19th century, the surge of the Industrial Revolution and advances in technology meant that jewellery was easier and cheaper to make. Factories were opening at an unprecedented rate, and trades were thriving, meaning it was possible to produce jewellery in much larger quantities. With the 19th-century jewellery revival being such a hot trend, we thought we'd have a brief look at the history of this remarkable design era.
Welcome To HobbyMaker - Gemporia's Newest Channel
Our brand new soft-crafting channel HobbyMaker went from conception to live on-air in a remarkably short amount of time earlier this year. Inside this issue, we've spoken to channel head Scott Stone about the incredible speed at which the channel launched. We've also chatted with the show's presenters, some of our fabulous guest designers, and some of the brilliant behind-the-scenes faces that made it all happen.
The Beginners Guide to Jewellery Care
No matter how careful we are, all gemstones are susceptible to wear and tear. Unfortunately, over time their natural beauty can appear to diminish, and this can be a result of many factors. Thankfully, the natural properties of your gem can often be restored with a little bit of cleaning. If you're looking to put some of the sparkle back into your older pieces, our updated guide will help you get started.
How To... Photograph Jewellery

Blossom with Natalie Constable
Decorating your home with gorgeous flowers has always been one of the simplest and most effective ways of lifting the look of a room. But investing in fresh flowers every few days can quickly rack up a hefty bill. Enter Blossom, Gemporia's range of beautifully made and styled faux flowers. We've spoken to Natalie Constable, who heads up the new collection, about the concept behind Blossom, what's already available in the collection and what we have to look forward to in the coming months.
Destello with Hattie Houston
Hattie Houston's fabulous Destello collection has won many fans since it first launched on Gemporia in December 2019. We recently had a good catch up with Hattie to see where the collection is heading, the fantastic designs and fabrics we have to look forward to later this year, and a little about the history of the collection too. It's all inside your summer Gemology magazine from Gemporia.
