2018: Jacobs 70th Anniversary year

Our 70th Anniversary Celebrations

Award winning Jacobs the Jewellers is 70 years old this year. Entirely in keeping with a family business holding the Reading community at its heart, Jacobs’ 2018 anniversary celebration centres around the ambitious goal of raising £70,000 for the Royal Berkshire Hospital Charity in the 70th anniversary of the founding of the NHS. Throughout the anniversary year, a series of events and initiatives are planned to raise funds for the much-loved local NHS Trust.

As at August 9th 2018, we've raised over £36,000 towards our goal.

Events wise, a team of “Jacobs Jumpers” skydived on April 22nd, video here; there's a soapbox derby at Engelfield House on September 8th, a golf day was held on Friday 14th September at Sonning Golf Club and the program includes a gala luxury black tie dinner on October the 6th. Contact us for more information on any of these events. From 25th August, you can buy tickets here.

Initiatives running in parallel include every 2018 purchase completed being entered into a prize draw to win a 0.70ct diamond 18ct white gold pendant, worth over £4000.

Furthermore, special 70th anniversary raffle tickets will be available to buy in store to win prizes, drawn each quarter. The prizes will be a unique mix from Jacobs own watch, jewellery and gift partners, as well as local businesses – proceeds going to the Royal Berkshire Hospital Charity. Click here to buy tickets.

In an innovative final initiative, Jacobs in house designers and goldsmiths will also be designing and making 7 unique jewellery pieces, designed in the style of a specific jewellery design era such as Art Deco or Victoriana. These 7 designs, ranging from £500 to £10,000, will be created and sold during the course of 2018 with a percentage donated towards the charity. Click here to see the range.
