Local jeweller's qualification triumph

A Porthcawl woman is celebrating after gaining the internationally renowned Professional Jeweller's Diploma from the National Association of Goldsmiths. Mellissa Williams of RMA Williams Jewellers who spent two years studying the distance learning course, is now recognised by the Association as a professional jeweller and may use the letters PJ Dip after their name.

"I am thrilled to have passed the course. I have worked so hard, as well as work full time, but I am already putting my new knowledge to use and it's the customers who get the benefit. I can now really help them get the perfect piece of jewellery," said Mellissa, who owns the company with her husband Marcus Williams. The Diploma, which is split into two parts Jewellery Education Training (JET) 1 & 2 is a nationally recognised professional qualification for jewellers aimed at enhancing customer service, increasing consumer confidence and providing essential product knowledge.

Michael Hoare, chief executive of the National Association of Goldsmiths said, "I applaud Mellissa on her achievement and for her commitment to excellent customer service. Customers don't always know who to trust when buying jewellery, but by asking if the person serving has the Professional Jeweller's Diploma, they know that they will get the right advice, information and support."

RMA Williams Jewellers is situated in John Street, Porthcawl and specialises in silver and gold jewellery such as Thomas Sabo, Lovelinks, Ice Watches and Clogau Gold as well as Wedding and engagement rings. Mellissa will officially receive her Diploma at a prestigious award ceremony to be held at Goldsmith's Hall in London in March.
