Patrick Fuller, Tresor Paris, Joshua James and BAO among winners.

The British Jewellers’ Association (BJA) 125th Anniversary Awards were held tonight in Birmingham with six awards presented to BJA members in a ceremony held during the annual BJGF Benevolent Society ball.

Retailer of the Year was awarded to Joshua James while Tresor Paris scooped the Supplier of the Year gong and Linda Macdonald won Designer of the Year.


Industry Contributor of the Year went to Malca Amit UK and Member of the Year was awarded to the Birmingham Assay Office.

A special Lifetime Achievement Award was presented to WB Creative Jewellery Group boss Patrick Fuller.

This is the first time that the BJA has held such an awards and the ceremony has been introduced to mark the association’s 125th anniversary.

The BJA created a shortlist for each award category which was then opened up to public vote on the BJA’s website in October, with the exception of Supplier of the Year, Contributor of the Year, and Member of the Year which were only open to BJA members to vote for.
