Official Goldflair sponsor 2018


This exclusive - black tie with a touch of gold flair - event, The Goldflair Ball is being held in the Scottish capital on Friday the 23rd November 2018 at the prestigious Edinburgh Assembly Rooms and will be the culmination of the 12-month project Going for Gold.

The spectacular evening of precious metal and jewellery focused extravagance and entertainment will raise awareness around the issues with artisanal mining. It will help to enable a positive change in responsible sourcing of precious metals and raise much needed funds to give back to suffering and deprived artisanal mining communities that are kept in a cycle of poverty and exploitation.

This extravaganza and mouth-watering feast for all your senses will be the ball of the year. With champagne, live performances, responsibly sourced and made jewellery and gems, a three-course dinner, exclusive silent raffle with incredible prizes, an auction, ceilidh ball and lots of traditional Hollywood glamour.

5:00pm to 6:00pm - Networking

There will be a networking hour for guests interested in finding out more about the project “Going for Gold” that has led to this night. Small talks from the event organiser Ian Nicholson, the event beneficiaries Fairmined, Fairtrade and The Dragonfly Initiative and our event sponsors Hamilton & Inches.
