This has been a tremendously rewarding year for us, and we are delighted to receive such a prestigious recognition from Professional Jeweller in association with well-respected industry bodies
London, UK (PRWEB UK) 15 September 2011
Boticca.com, the online marketplace for unique jewelry, accessories and bags from top emerging designers around the world, has been named as part of The Professional Jeweller Hot 100, in association with The Company of Master Jewellers and supported by Ti Sento, Aagaard, Swarovski and Trollbeads, in this year’s most-anticipated celebration of the UK jewelry industry. The industry roll of honor features Boticca.com as one of the best jewelry retailers in the UK.
The Professional Jeweller Hot 100 is an annual project run by Professional Jeweller. Each year the magazine’s editorial team selects 100 individuals in the UK jewelry industry who it believes have shown true innovation and have driven their businesses, and so the industry, forward over the past 12 months. There is no number allocation in the book, and instead it is divided up into sections to reflect the different types of individuals profiled and photographed for the book. This year the sections were:
- Trendsetters – the leading established jewelry designers of 2011
- Retail Stars – the best jewelry retailers in the UK in 2011
- Business Big Shots – business leaders who have excelled in 2011
- Trailblazers – individuals who have pushed the boundaries in unique sectors in 2011
- NexGems – Professional Jeweller’s pick of the star jewelry designers of the future
