Nominations came flooding in yesterday as we announced the one week countdown for industry professionals to submit Power List entries.

The trade has than one week left to put forward individuals they believe ought to be recognised for their hard work, innovation or special efforts over the last year.

Professional Jeweller’s inaugural Power List, due to be published in May, is a celebration of individuals from jewellery retailers and suppliers who are blazing a trail in the market.


Maybe they are a managing director or regional manager of a major jewellery brand, leading the company by example. Or perhaps they are an admin assistant working in the back office of an independent jeweller retailer, who is integral to the business.

Whatever the role, the list will be shining the spotlight on movers and shakers who are pushing boundaries, and playing their part in keeping business booming even during more difficult times on the high street.

Votes have already been flooding in, with many putting forward individuals they respect from outside their own business, and others recognising unsung heroes within their firm who deserve to be publically commended for their work.

Those who wish to nominate somebody simply need to fill in a very simple entry form giving a few details about what makes that individual stand out.

The Power List will be split into the following categories:

– Retail Titans
Jewellery store owners, managers and directors inspiring their organisations

– Brand Champions
Innovative managers and directors transforming the branded-jewellery market

– Inspiring Independents 
Individuals playing their part to drive business on the British high street
