Today is last day to nominate industry members for Hot 100 list.

Nominations for Professional Jeweller’s Hot 100 2012 will close at midnight today, meaning there is just 12 hours left to send in your nominations for who you think are the best, most innovative movers and shakers in the UK jewellery industry.

Nominations have been open for six weeks and the response so far has been overwhelming, with a constant stream of nominees, from emerging jewellery designers to established retailers and company directors.
