Professional Jeweller is looking for the industry’s greatest stars to honour in the inaugural Power List.

The UK jewellery industry boasts of innovative and inspiring individuals who are pushing boundaries and playing their part in keeping business booming even during difficult times on the British high street.

To recognise this, Professional Jeweller has launched the ‘Power List’ — a celebration of individuals from jewellery retailers and suppliers who are blazing a trail in the market.


The Power List will recognise those who are play a major role in promoting innovation, championing customer service and pioneering unbeatable after-sale service.

This could include anyone from the owner and chief exec of a jewellery retailer with multiple regional stores to an admin assistant working in the back office of a single-site jeweller who is integral to the business.

From high-profile managing directors to some of the unsung heroes of the UK jewellery industry, the Power List seeks to shine a light on the many stars that are really helping to make a difference and lift the profile of the trade.

The good news is that the industry can play a part in deciding which individuals are considered for inclusion in this year’s Power List – with many already putting forward individuals from different areas of the industry.

Those who wish to nominate somebody they know 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

– Market Movers
Professionals pushing new boundaries for brands and suppliers in the trade

– Rising Stars
Emerging stars and unsung heroes of the UK jewellery industry

Professional Jeweller editor, Stacey Hailes, comments: “Nominations for the Power List only opened last week and already votes have been flooding in. Not only have companies been putting people from within their organisations forward for recognition, but a lot of suppliers have been supporting individuals from retailers and vice versa – which is fantastic to see!

“I am looking forward to reading all the nominations and revealing the Power List in due course.”
