Ti Sento will return for a second year as a gold partner of the Professional Jeweller Hot 100 and will sponsor the Retail Stars section of the Hot 100 book that celebrates the best of British jewellery retailing.

The Professional Jeweller Hot 100 2012 book will celebrate the 100 most influential and forward-thinking members of the jewellery industry through insightful profiles and original photography taken by the lead photographers of Harpers Bazaar Arabia. The book and the list will be unveiled at an exclusive invite-only party in London in September where the cream of the jewellery industry will gather together to celebrate.

Ti Sento first came on board with the Professional Jeweller Hot 100 in its second year in 2011 as a gold partner and sponsor of what became the Ti Sento Retail Stars category that featured 2011’s leading jewellery retailers including the men and women behind Rox, Pressleys, Aurum, EC One, Lumbers, Harriet Kelsall, H&T, Pearl & Queenie, Urban Armour, Boticca, Steffans and Astley Clarke, among others.

Ti Sento UK sales manager Judith Lockwood said: “Ti Sento is excited and thrilled to be involved as a gold partner sponsor once again for the Professional Jeweller Hot 100 for 2012. The Hot 100 is always eagerly anticipated, builds nicely before the event and grows into a crescendo just before the announcements are made, with everyone eagerly looking forward to it. The Hot 100 is a perfect fit with the Ti Sento brand and we are proud to support the event again.”

Professional Jeweller Hot 100 gold partner Ti Sento joins fellow sponsors The Company of Master Jewellers, which has returned as principle partner for a third year, and Clogau Gold which will be returning to the Hot 100 event for a second year with its popular Hot 100 Best Dressed competition that will ask fans of Professional Jeweller’s Facebook page to vote for their favourite outfit from the night chosen from a selection of photographs taken by a dedicated photographer with the winner being made a piece of bespoke jewellery by the brand.

Professional Jeweller editor-in-chief Rachael Taylor said: "I could not be more pleased that Ti Sento is back on board with the Professional Jeweller Hot 100 for a second year. Judith and her team have a great reputation for working closely with retailers in a highly professional manner but have fun at the same time; this attitude towards business fits perfectly with our own and makes the brand an ideal sponsor for the Retail Stars category.”

The Professional Jeweller Hot 100 launched in September 2010 at the Kensington Roof Gardens in London and has since become an annual industry staple. Last year more than 700 guests attended the celebratory party at One Mayfair in London where the most recent list was unveiled, which you can see by clicking here.

The venue for the 2012 party is yet to be revealed but the magazine will continue its tradition of switching venues each year to keep the invite-only guests guessing.
