Dubbed the watch and jewellery industry Oscars, the UK Jewellery and Watch Awards took place last week at the magnificent Hilton, Park Lane.
It was set to be a sparkling evening with 500 of the industry’s members attending, and it certainly didn’t disappoint! It was a wonderful evening, presented by Channel 4’s Rick Edwards, recognising and rewarding the best retailers, brands and designers within our industry.
As headline sponsors of this year’s UK Watch and Jewellery Awards 2014 it was a great honour for Clogau to not only play a great part in the event this year, but to also be shortlisted for both Supplier of the Year and Brand of the Year. Unfortunately we came away empty handed this year, but our successors in both categories are very worthy winners. Jewellery Brand of the Year that was awarded to Coeur de Lion and Supplier of the Year went to Citizen Watch UK.
The Outstanding Contribution to the Industry went to a well-deserved Simon Rainer who chairs the BJA of which Clogau MD Ben Roberts is a member of the Board, so we are delighted for him.
A fantastic evening was had by all, and although we weren’t lucky enough to be awarded this year, we are certainly looking forward to next year following a very exciting 25th Anniversary campaign. Keep your eyes peeled!
Thank you to everyone at Retail Jeweller and UK Jewellery and Watch awards for your unprecedented hospitality.
