Jacobs the Jewellers, a trusted independent jewellery shop in Reading, was again named as one of the UK’s top 100 Inspiring Independent Jewellers. The Retail Jeweller (RJ) magazine has been running the contest since 2011 and for the fourth time, Jacobs has been had the honour to be included in the list of outstanding jewellery shops. The past years’ events primarily included 50 independent jewellers but this year, RJ has expanded the list to 100 participants from across the UK and Ireland.
Retail Jeweller’s Inspiring Independents is one of the most prestigious honours that jewellery shops can only hope to achieve. As such, the process of determining the winners was meticulous. Independents were nominated via an online voting form for different reasons.
