Nigel grew up in the family business so that jewellery and antiques were his everyday world, and with his father’s connections in Hatton Garden, was able to learn the jeweller’s art from some of the best people in the business.
His other great love has been music taking up the drums from the age of 8, and luckily was taught by Denny Dobson, a very well known drummer of the time. Upon leaving school he went straight into music playing sessions and in bands for many years. Indeed he still to this day keeps his hand in, playing the odd gig and charity do. There’s life in the old dog yet!
Following a spell doing other jobs he came back to his roots, going into the family business in 1982, taking over in 1988.
