Professional Jeweller Hot 100 2015 Trendsetter Pippa Small has been shortlisted for the Walpole 2015 British Luxury Awards, which celebrates exceptional brands and individuals who work in the luxury industry.

The Walpole British Luxury Awards were created in 2001 to honour those who demonstrate brilliance in the luxury sector both within Britain – where the luxury industry is now worth over £32 billion – and internationally.

The awards will take place on Monday November 2 at The Dorchester, one of the evening’s sponsors.


The event is chaired by Walpole Chief executive officer Michelle Emmerson, with winners selected by an esteemed judging panel of luxury leaders led by Michael Ward, MD of Harrods. Lucia van der Post, Conrad Bird, (director, Great Britain Campaign), Peter Ting, Gillian de Bono (How to Spend It), Joan Burstein CBE, (Founder of Browns), and Richard Carter, (Rolls Royce) will meet to choose this year’s winners.

Emmerson says: “2015 has been a remarkable year for innovation in British luxury, and this year’s nominees have pushed the boundaries with trailblazing openings, experiences and design. All have been chosen for excelling in quality, design, innovation and service, and are emblems of true British luxury.”

The only awards ceremony to span all sectors of the luxury world, the Walpole British Luxury Awards shortlist is divided into nine categories including British Luxury Brand of the Year, Luxury Experience, Craftsmanship, Social Responsibility, Cultural & Creative Innovation, Brand Ambassador, International and New Talent.
