UK jewellery professionals have rushed to back the companies they think should win the 2017 Professional Jeweller Awards, with hundreds casting their votes in the first week of the online ballot going live.
For the first time ever, members of the UK jewellery sector have the chance to influence which brands and retailers win the ultimate industry accolade based on their achievements in the market during the past 12 months.
The poll has only been open seven days, but it’s already clear that the outcome of the 16 categories is going to be a closely- fought contest as members of the industry flock to vote for the market’s top brands and retailers.
With every vote set to count, brands and retailers have been getting busy on social media and spreading the word through whatever means possible in a bid to strengthen their chances of winning.
The Professional Jeweller Awards is designed so that brands and suppliers vote on the outcome of the retailer categories, while retailers vote on the outcome of the brands and suppliers categories.
Industry professionals can only vote for one finalist in each category and all entries are verified and validated for eligibility.
The voting survey only takes a couple of minutes to complete. Simply enter your details and follow the instructions on screen.
All votes will be counted and verified before the winners are announced at an awards ceremony at the spectacular Kensington Roof Gardens on Monday, September 4.
The evening will see guests served a three-course barbecue and unlimited wine as they get to cheer on the finalists and network under the stars.
