Shortlisted for UKJA’s Supplier of the Year award
We have been shortlisted for Jeweller/Watch Supplier of the Year in Retail Jeweller’s UK Jewellery Awards 2019 and all of us here at Raw Pearls are ecstatic.
The past year has seen huge progression in the Raw Pearls offering – further developing both our product collections and service offering. There has been a great focus on providing additional tools such as education and imagery to make our customer’s pearl businesses more successful both online and instore.
We have introduced the most comprehensive pearl jewellery brochure in the trade, which has received high praise from customers and prospects alike, directly contributing to increased retail sales. Not only is it easy to order from, it has no visible trade prices (various accompanying trade price lists are available) so it can be shown to the end customer – thus increasing up-selling possibilities. We have also vastly extended our photography library which is now 1000 image strong, and our diamond and pearl range – which is now award-winning.
Our most exciting development over the past year though is the planning and implementing of our online training platform: Pearl Academy by Raw Pearls. It’s free and accessible to all and has been designed to support the trade and increase awareness and knowledge of pearls. There is nothing freely available in this format from another UK pearl supplier, so we felt it was desperately needed.
We’re a small team so we must be dynamic – we must stay up to date with design and business trends and with such a passionate and hardworking team, we feel we are doing just that.
What better way to celebrate successful new developments than with such a prestigious award nomination? Thank you so much to all those who played a part in our selection – we can’t wait to celebrate at the ceremony on 3rd July.
