Catrin Jones of Warrenders Jewellers, in Cheam Road, was one of six people named in the merchandising category for Retail Jeweller’s Rising Stars 30 under 30 this month.

The annual scheme is run by the magazine to ‘celebrate and reward young talent from across the industry’.

Richard Warrender, or Warrenders Jewellers, said: “It is great to have a colleague so engaged in wanting to learn about every aspect of Warrenders and we feel very proud of Catrin to be recognised as a ‘Rising Star’ in the industry’.”
