The sight of judge Shaun Leane modelling a pair of gold hoop earrings, each embellished with a large dragonfly, is quite something. It may even make viewers warm to him because he and fellow judge Solange Azagury-Partridge haven’t had a good response from the show’s audience. Unlike the contestants, who seem a lovely group.

Five jewellers are left working on those earrings and a bespoke hinged locket for someone whose bone-marrow donation saved another woman’s life. One locket gets a “Bravo!” from Leane – praise indeed – but it’s the unalloyed delight of the jeweller whose piece is chosen for the gift that really touches the heart.


Katherine Ryan hosts as the five remaining contestants are challenged to make a pair of identical gold hoop earrings, before creating a gold locket for a real-world client. Who will impress the judges enough to stay to make it through to the semi-final?
