This year’s UK Jewellery Awards took place virtually earlier this week (16 December) and saw 20 businesses and individuals in the jewellery industry celebrate industry achievements over the past year.
Among 2019/20’s winners were independent brand and retailer Daniella Draper, as well as multiple retailer Beaverbrooks, with both picking up two awards each.
Daniella Draper, which has outlets in Lincoln, Windemere and Cleethorpes, was named Mono-Brand Retailer of the Year and Multichannel Retailer of the Year, while Beaverbrooks won for Employer of the Year and Retailer of the Year in the ‘six stores or more’ category.
Other winners included Hugh Rich which won in the Retailer of the Year (five stores or fewer) category, and Berry’s, which scooped the Watch Retailer of the Year award.
Pandora and Seiko won Jewellery Brand of the Year and Watch Brand of the Year, respectively, with both awards being voted for by a panel of 2,000 consumers.
Next year’s UK Jewellery Awards will return as a live event on 15 September 2021 at The Brewery in London.
