Nicholas receives some great news Photo credited to ITP Images Professional Jeweller magazine revealed this year’s list of the Hot 100 UK jewellery professionals on September 3rd at a glittering, invite-only party at One Marylebone in London. The annual event was held this year in association with the Company of Master Jewellers and sponsored by Diamond Partner International Jewellery London and Gold Partners Tresor Paris and Bering. Nicholas is delighted to have been nominated and featured in the Hot 100 as the selection basis covered people in the UK and Irish jewellery industry. The identity of those on the Hot 100 list is kept secret until the big reveal at the party, which this year had an emerald theme. Guests were treated to drinks and food at the event before an exclusive screening of photographs taken of each person in the Hot 100. A book packed with exclusive portrait photography and insightful interviews featuring this year's Hot 100 was given out at the event to guests and will be posted out to subscribers of Professional Jeweller with the October issue of the magazine. Professional Jeweller editor Kathryn Bishop said: "This year we mark the fourth anniversary of the Professional Jeweller Hot 100 and celebrate the brilliance of each individual who has made this year’s list. "They are innovators in their field; the ones who don’t just go an extra step but a further 10. This year’s Hot 100 is brimming with retailers carving their own paths, designers who have buyers flocking to place orders, and businesspeople showcasing nous and innovation in times that are, admittedly, still tough for our industry.” The 2013 Professional Jeweller Hot 100 is not a list with a number one winner, but is instead broken down into five categories: Trendsetters for jewellery designers who have led the industry in 2013, Retail Stars for UK jewellers who have demonstrated world-class retail skills, Business Big Shots for the jewellery industry's most impressive leaders, Trailblazers for the individuals forging their own way in the industry, and NexGems, a celebration of Britain's freshest jewellery design talent.

It was an amazing night and a triumphant Wylde win at the very first Bristol Life Awards where we were awarded 'Best Retailer' for the whole of the city of Bristol, beating off worthy competition and emerging as the proud winner! The awards took place on April 27, held in a massive; uberglam marquee in Lloyds Amphitheatre in Bristol, gathering together some of the best business and creative minds the city has to offer – all vying for that grand accolade at the awards ceremony. We were proud as punch to receive the award in the Retailer Category, recognising the achievements of our Clifton shop and the dedicated work of all our staff there who have worked tirelessly in the seven years the store has been open, to ensure the ‘Wylde Effect’ flourishes and becomes an integral part of the vibrant city of Bristol. Nicholas gratefully accepted the award, along with Bristol shop manager, Brano and assistant manager Shetal, commenting that it was a ‘fantastic tribute in this our 30th anniversary year’ and promising that ‘the best is still to come’. Nicholas thanked his hard-working team Brano, Shetal, Janet, Lynne and Giovanna for providing an outstanding service and building over the 7 years an excellent reputation, mirroring the many awards (including 'Best Retailer in the UK') the Bath store has garnered over the years. Our thanks also to Bristol Life magazine for organising the awards and our hearty congratulations to all the other winners in what proved to be a real gem of a night for all involved!
We're delighted to have won the Designer-Maker Jewellery Boutique of the year in Professional Jeweller's 2017 Awards! Nicholas picked up the award at a glittering ceremony in London where the organisers commented: "Jewellery designer Nicholas Wylde has come a long way since opening the doors to his first store 30 years ago at 24 years old. Now he has two – one in Bath and Bristol – and has mastered the art of coming up with creative innovations to increase footfall and promote the brand in the cities it resides." The inaugural Professional Jeweller Awards were created to honour the achievements of the leading jewellery brands, suppliers and retailers operating in the UK today. Drawing up the shortlist of finalists and the ultimate winners was a two stage process that aimed to capture the collective expertise of hundreds of executives working in the British jewellery market. It's a much appreciated accolade - especially in our 30th anniversary year!

Nicholas Wylde and the team pick up another award. The Retail Jeweller awards are the most prestigious awards in the industry. In our 30th year last year we enjoyed many events to celebrate including crowning our Queen . One of the most successful and creative events was the treasure hunt we held in the summer. We hid 8 items of specially designed jewellery around Bath and had over 3500 people taking part to win the amazing prize of £10,000.00. The Retail Jeweller award judges commented that this event was truly creative, created much media attention and delivered an impressive response. Nicholas says "I really enjoyed designing the unusual items and working closely with my retail partners. My idea was to create an interesting interactive competition that could help the independent retail trade of Bath but also showcase our beautiful jewellery around the City". Thank you for all the staff who helped in the designing, making & running of the event and also to the fellow retailers who helped us to win this amazing award
