The Collections of the Year 2019 shortlist will be revealed on Monday morning – with the public vote going live at the same time.
This week the Professional Jeweller team will be whittling through the extensive list of nominations to decide which collections will be named a finalist this year.
The team will take into consideration the number of nominations, as well as the strength of the vote. They will also seeke advice from retailers to make sure the ranges revealed on Monday truly reflect the best of the trade.

As always, once we reveal the shortlist on Monday, it will be down to our readers to decide the winners.
Trade professionals will have one week to cast a vote online via a public survey, with finalists being encouraged to drum up support via social media.
The 2019 Collections of the Year winners will then be announced in the December issue of Professional Jeweller.
