Meet Our Presenters
Kim’s been a part of the Rocks & Co. family for 6 years and has a great deal of experience in gemstones, previously working within our customer service team. This is where she truly realised her passion for gemstones.
Offering a lively personality and an incredible passion for beautiful jewellery, Kim then became AJP Accredited Jewellery Professional, studying with the GIA (Gemological Institute of America) and went on to share her wealth of knowledge on air.
One of the main factors of Rocks & Co. which Kimberley loves (alongside the people), is the collectability of gemstones we offer along the with ultimate quality that you can’t find in your everyday jewellers - Record breaking gemstones and some of the finest in the world - and now could not imagine a life without gemstones. If she had to choose some of her favourites would include; Mutuca Indicolite, ArgyleDiamonds, Muzo Colombian emerald, Sphalerite and of course Paraiba Tourmaline!
Vicky Gordon became a presenter at Rocks & Co. after winning the "Become a Rockstar" competition, where her infectious personality to light up any room won everyone over!
As a professionally trained singer Vicky is no stranger to being in the spotlight. Singing all over the country as a sole artist, duo and as part of a band.
Surrounded by likeminded people, Vicky has also presented at music festivals introducing and interviewing acts.
Through Rocks & Co. she has travelled to Brazil, which offers gemstones as colourful and vibrant as its culture. This is where she felt she truly understood how special we are in what we do, buying directly from source.
When asked her favourite gemstone, the first one that sprung to mind was the luxury Tanzanite which she believes we are pioneers for in the industry. As for designs, the ultimate glamour would and always been antique cushion in portrait...pure class.
Liv started out as an actress, having trained at Birmingham school of speech and drama in the 90's, she left to tour in comedy sketch shows and did theatre before working in front of the camera 11 years ago presenting on a shopping channel called Snatch It for a year.
Liv then moved into the wonderful world of presenting gemstones direct from the mines, she travelled to Thailand to the mines learning all about the gemstones as well as the locations which they come from.
Getting to know all about gemstones and becoming an GIA, AJP Jeweller are Liv’s personal highlights of her career thus far and has now led her to Rocks&Co where she joined to further her knowledge and introduce herself to some of the worlds rarer stones which Rocks&Co have.
Liv’s main reason for her love of Rocks&Co is the quality in craftsmanship and believes the qualities of our stones are outstanding. Her favourite stone would have to be opals for their play of colour, especially Lightning Ridge. Liv found it very hard to pick just one gemstone as each one has its own beauty, history and allure!
Outside of work, Liv is married to Lee and has three young boys aged 9,6,3 (Flynn, Ralph and Remi) who keep her very busy!
With a background in events management, marketing & PR, Poppy first started at Rocks & Co. two years ago behind the scenes on the research and promotions side of the team. Having worked in both the hospitality and fashion industry, Poppy’s passion for jewellery and experience in being a part of a fast paced, lively & personable environment drew her towards presenting at Rocks & Co. also...which she absolutely loves!
Poppy was always drawn towards unique jewellery, but it was whilst working over London fashion week that she really discovered her true interest for exotic gemstones, which is exactly what we offer. Amongst trend research, outside of Rocks & Co. Poppy acts as a charity representative whom she does public speaking for around the UK. If the choice had to be made, her favourite gemstones would be Black Diamonds for their unique beauty, Tanzanite for its velvet blue hue, and two of her birthstones; Brazilian Paraiba Tourmaline & Opal...for obvious reasons!
Having worked in the entertainment industry for over a decade, Helen discovered her love of TV 5 years ago. Since then, working with high-end jewellery has become her passion both on and off the TV screen, extending her own collection, as well bringing you her favourite exceptional quality pieces.
Working in many aspects of TV, Helen has found her home here at Rocks & Co., infecting our screens with her lively and energetic personality. When asked about her favourite gemstone, she was undecided between Opal and Tanzanite, enjoying the kaleidoscope of colours found in Opal gemstones, and the unique beauty and rich, deep blues of Tanzanite.
Kathryn originally trained as an actress at East 15 Acting school and after a while stopped pursuing an acting career as she decided she preferred presenting to performing.
Jewellery has always been a big part of Kathryn’s life as her father is a jeweller. She has seen many impressive and expensive pieces now she is at Rocks & Co. and has witnessed many times the journey that a piece takes to its creation. She has also earned the status of Accredited Jewellery Professional after studying with the GIA and enjoys sharing knowledge about both jewellery and gemstones, as well as helping people expand their own collections.
For Kathryn, there are too many beautiful gemstones to pick just one favourite but at the top of her list you will always find Sapphires, Garnets, Diamonds, Tanzanite and Amethyst among others. Her favourite stone form her own collection is a Colour Change Sapphire that she recently acquired… She is hoping to have it set into a ring soon.
Wayne started his career as a hairdresser, whilst also working on fashion shows up and down the country. Wayne’s career then took a different path as he became a radio presenter, this is where he discovered his passion to become a TV presenter.
Whilst presenting in the fashion industry Wayne developed a love for coloured gemstones and was amazed when he arrived at Rocks & Co by the incredible quality he sees when presenting.
