The winners of the second annual Professional Jeweller Awards have been announced following a glamorous gala dinner and awards ceremony held in London.
Business executives from the nation’s premier independent jewellers and multiple retailers were out in full force at the event, along with the industry’s leading suppliers, big brands, and shining stars.
The Professional Jeweller Awards were founded last year to honour the achievements of companies and individuals operating in the UK jewellery industry.
The finalists in attendance on the night represented the crème de la crème of the trade, with many being put forward for their innovation over the last 12 months.
The Professional Jeweller Awards are unique because the winners are decided entirely by the industry, making each category accolade the ultimate endorsement from the trade.
All the winners were determined by an online poll, with retailers voting for the leading suppliers in the market, and the suppliers backing the jeweller they most admire.
This year’s live poll received more votes than ever before, with industry professionals being quick to support their peers.
Many categories went down to the wire and in some cases the difference between first and second place was just a couple of percent, underlining just how high the standards have been set by an industry that is constantly evolving.
The votes in each stream were then verified and led us to the winners that we can finally reveal to you now!
The event would not have been possible without the support of our sponsors River Mounts, Sif Jakobs Jewellery, Kit Heath, Parify, V12 Retail Finance, and Cadfolio.
Representatives from each company were invited onto the stage during the evening to present awards to the winning operators.
