An established journalist with more than 15 years’ experience working in the jewellery and watch industry, Diamond has written for Condé Nast Traveller, The Sunday Telegraph, The Financial Times, Vanity Fair and Sotheby’s.
Diamond will be the key editorial point of contact for clients and will strengthen the company’s increasing commitment to luxury watch and jewellery content across the News UK portfolio – including an amplified digital content plan for 2020, plus new and innovative ways for brands to engage with an affluent readership across both titles, says News UK.
Jessica Diamond said: “I am thrilled to be joining The Times as its watch and jewellery director, working across The Sunday Times Style, Times LUXX, and online across multiple platforms. It’s a subject that I’m passionate about so I can’t wait to start sharing my story-telling and edits in iconic publications that offer such incredible reach. Watch this space!”
Kate Reardon said: “I am delighted that Jess Diamond is joining The Times LUXX as our jewellery Director. In her we have found an extraordinarily talented journalist who is as sophisticated as our readers. Jess joins a roster of some of the best writers in England in serving our wealthy and shrewd readers.”
Lorraine Candy said: “Jess will bring a new vision and new approach to our increased watch and jewellery coverage. We have a new timetable of coverage across both papers and will be unveiling plans in January!”
