ICA Names Helen Molesworth Editor-in-Chief of InColor Magazine

The news comes just months after the association announced a new publisher and redesign for the quarterly journal.

Helen Molesworth is now the editor-in-chief of ICA’s quarterly InColor magazine.
New York—The International Colored Gemstone Association has appointed gemologist, jewelry historian, and educator Helen Molesworth to lead InColor magazine.

The organization hired her as the flagship publication’s editor-in-chief after months of interviews and deliberations followed by a unanimous decision by the selection committee, according to the association.

ICA said Molesworth is already working on InColor Issue No. 48, slated for distribution in September.

Molesworth’s experience in the industry is expansive, with a broad commercial, international and academic background, having worked with the trade, gemological laboratories, and auction houses across Europe and Asia.

She served as the managing director for the Gübelin Academy, building the business from the ground up and creating all the textbooks and educational material needed.

She also has held the role of jewelry specialist, creating catalogues and developing business for Christie’s and Sotheby’s in London and Geneva, as well as serving as a jewelry history professor in Geneva.

The gemologist, holding an FGA with distinction from the Gemmological Association of Great Britain, recently was hired as the head of business development for online trading platform Gembridge.

The news of her taking the helm at InColor comes just months after ICA announced it has a new publisher for the quarterly journal, Befindan Media, which is giving it a redesign and relaunch along with a new tagline: “Celebrating gemstone beauty.”

“InColor has been a vitally important part of ICA’s communication since 2004,” said ICA President Clement Sabbagh. “We are confident that Helen Molesworth as our new editor-in-chief will greatly contribute and enhance our flagship publication. Furthermore, it brings us much joy to have InColor under Helen’s leadership and hope that this appointment will encourage and support all women who wish to participate in our initiatives, discussions, and projects for our industry.”
 
“I’m delighted to be joining the ICA as editor-in-chief of InColor. It’s a wonderful magazine which has long set a high standard for quality content in the presentation, education, and promotion of colored gemstones,” Molesworth said. 

“I look forward to bringing both my specialist knowledge and business experience to the magazine, and, even more so, to working with many industry friends and colleagues to continue its success and drive it further forward, as a publication which supports the ICA, its wider mission, and the colored gemstone industry as a whole.”
