Dimexon was proud to sponsor Emerging Jewellery Designer of the Year at the UK Jewellery Awards 2022, hosted in London by Retail Jeweller magazine
As one of the UK’s longest-running and most prestigious trade awards events, we were thrilled to attend the UK Jewellery Awards this month, which was marking its 30th year. The awards celebrate the best and brightest in the British jewellery and watch industry, bringing together more than 600 professionals at the ceremony in London.
Donning black tie, the Dimexon team arrived at the Hilton London Metropole for the illustrious event on September 1st. The event recognises and celebrates all areas of the jewellery and watch industry and includes awards for Bespoke Retailer of the Year, Employer of the Year and Creative Jewellery Designer of the Year.
This year, we were honoured to sponsor the Emerging Jewellery Designer of the Year award as a part of our ongoing commitment to supporting and championing small businesses in the industry. We are big believers in celebrating and advocating for those at the early stages of their careers who are helping to shape the future of the industry, which is why we have recently launched a digital ordering platform for sustainable melee diamonds that has no minimum order.
The shortlist for Emerging Jewellery Designer of the Year was made up of some of the UK’s most exciting and creative up-and-coming jewellery designers. Although the competition was tough, our head of European operations Christopher Bull was delighted to take to the stage on the night to announce the winner and present designer Genevieve Schwartz with her trophy. Genevieve is certainly a worthy winner, with the judging panel being impressed with her vibrant and pioneering collections, including her recent innovative collection of men’s engagement rings, as well as her strong sense of brand. We can’t wait to see what’s next for Genevieve, and wish her all the best with her future endeavours.
We would like to take this moment to offer our congratulations to the rest of the shortlist, who were all winners in our eyes. Those designers are Edward Xu of EDXÚ, Georgia Wang, Trang Do of Kimjoux, Alexia Karides of YSSO and Louiza Leclercq of Louiza Jewellery.
