Winner: Freedom at Topshop
Forward thinking, fashion-led and progressive, judges all agreed that Topshop’s jewellery line Freedom is intelligent in both its product offering and its employment of enthusiastic, knowledgeable staff. Judges were particularly impressed that Freedom is supporting and championing new talent. One judge said: “Topshop has become a jewellery specialist with a proven eye for fashion, which is translating into impressive high street sales.”
Hallett Retail for Jewellery Concessions
Judges were impressed by the reach of Hallett Retail, which operates nearly 200 jewellery concessions in 14 retail partners in the UK and EU. Jewellery accounted for 30% of Hallett Retail’s business, a marked increase from the previous year.
Stocking a range of designers, from established, well-known brands to new up-and-coming designers, this retailer was commended for the diverse variety of product and price points available. Jarrold’s brand offering across jewellery is constantly diversifying to meet changing needs.
Celebrating its 30th anniversary this year, Jon Richard has become a branded retailer catering for women’s accessories. Judges liked the range of price points available, from its high-fashion Mood by Jon Richard collection to its accessible and contemporary Jon Richard Made with Swarovski collection.
