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.

We reveal our total raised so far on November 19th at our annual Christmas Event!

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 included a gala luxury black tie dinner on October the 6th. 

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.
