Trendsetting brand and manufacturer win Houlden awards at J&WB.
Rachel Galley and Domino’s Siobhan Maher have been announced as the winners of the Bridal Designs of the Year 2015 competition held at Jewellery & Watch Birmingham (J&WB) in association with the Houlden Group.
The awards were split into two price categories, with Maher taking home the gong for best design in a price bracket of £1,500 to £3,000 for her Rosebud design, while Galley won the luxury category for her Snowdrop trilogy.
Juraj Vyrostek from Brown & Newirth, who had designs shortlisted in both categories, was given a highly commended nod at the awards.
The winners of the awards were announced at a ceremony at the catwalk at J&WB. The competition was first launched last year and was open to both single rings and sets that could either be one-off designs or part of a widely available collection.
As a prize for winning the competition, the victors will have the chance to have their work sold through Houlden Group’s network of retailers.
