Promising to be a night to remember, the Retail Jeweller UK Jewellery Awards 2019 was certainly a memorable occasion. With champagne upon arrival and a buzzing atmosphere from the start, many experts from the industry came together to celebrate success over the past year, with the hopes of taking home a coveted award.
WATCH RETAILER OF THE YEAR 2019
Hosted by Larry Lamb, the award ceremony built up strong anticipation and excitement as winners were crowed across the categories. At the Burrells table, applause erupted upon being named winners of the Watch Retailer of the Year!

Upon receiving the award, our Managing Director Edward Ferris said:
“It is a great moment for us as a team to be able to celebrate!”
The party atmosphere was continued with funfair attractions and photo booth moments to capture these truly magical memories. We really want to thank all our whole team for their hard work and dedication to Burrells, as without their efforts, this award would not have been possible.
COL. DAME KELLY HOLMES JOINS THE BURRELLS TEAM
Not only did Burrells have an award to celebrate that night, but we also marked the occasion by introducing our newest Burrells Ambassador, Col. Dame Kelly Holmes. Dame Kelly is one of the UK’s best-loved athletes, but also has global respect as a role model and an inspiration.
When she won gold in both the 800m and 1500m at the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens, she became the first Briton in 84 years to do so.
The Burrells store in Tunbridge Wells (one of our four stores across the UK) has been proud to have Dame Kelly as a customer for some time, and the team here are delighted with the new partnership. At the Retail Jewellery Awards, Dame Kelly commented:
“I am delighted to become a brand ambassador for a company like Burrells; a successful family-run business, run by hard-working and passionate people. I am looking forward to the opportunities this partnership will create.”
Dame Kelly joins our long standing ambassador Franny Benali to complete the Burrells team and we certainly can't wait to see what the future has in store for us. All in all, the Retail Jeweller UK Jewellery Awards 2019 was a spectacular evening, which only gets us more excited for what is next to come.
