UK Jewellery Awards 2016 – Our Exciting Evening as Finalists at

This year we were nominees for Etailer of the Year 2016. So we attended the UK Jewellery Awards 2016 last night on 29th June. The glittering event was spectacular as it took place at London’s swank Hilton Park Lane.

First of all, it was once again an honour for us to share the evening with UK’s top jewellery professionals. We have won the award twice before. Therefore we felt very proud.

It seemed like everybody from the industry had got excited about the evening. Large and small jewellery and watch brands were present. As were talented jewellery maker-designers. Also representatives from UK’s five Assay Offices were there.

Who was there?

Gethin Jones, the Welsh television presenter, was our host. He entertained the crowd with his charm and sense of humour.

The award for Outstanding Contribution to the Industry went to Patrick Fuller. He is the chairman of WB The Creative Jewellery Group. A huge congratulations!

The Edinburgh Assay Offices scooped the Innovation Award. Perhaps most noteworthy, the Birmingham Assay Office won Employer of the Year.

The evening & awards

While we didn’t nab the award again this year we’d like to congratulate Gemporia for their win!

Competition was very tough this year. We knew a hat trick would be tricky due to so many exceptional industry names in the running. It’s been very satisfying to be nominated and have our hard work recognised.

We also had a great time meeting old and new friends. Well done to Wong Jewellers, Inspired Collection and CARAT* London for being nominated.

Finally, we’d like to congratulate all the nominees and winners and thank the organisers. Because it was a fantastic evening and we had a great time – and we think a fantatsic time was had by all.

We’re already looking forward to next year!
