Simon Pure, a client of Orchard Growth Partners, has been presented with the internationally acclaimed Platinum Bridal Collection of the Year Award at the 2009 UK Jewellery Awards. Steve Parsons, Creative Director of Simon Pure, was presented with the award, which was sponsored by the Platinum Guild International, at a glittering ceremony held at the Grosvenor House Hotel in Park Lane.
The Surrey based design-led jewellery retailer, which has been working with Orchard Principal Antony Doggwiler for the past three years, is no stranger to awards ceremonies having previously picked up the UK Platinum Innovation Design Award and a Kayman award for jewellery design, as well as having been twice short listed for the prestigious UK Independent Jewellery Retailer of the Year and a finalist in the Luxury Jeweller of the Year award.
Receiving the award, Steve could not hide his delight. "Winning this has come as a complete surprise to us all, especially with such tough competition. We are over the moon that our work has been recognized for this prestigious category." Simon Pure has been pushing the boundaries of jewellery design since starting business in Smithbrook Kilns, near Cranleigh, in 1986 and opened its flagship Guildford shop in 2000. In spite of the difficult economic climate, the business has continued to flourish, and is looking forward to using this award to drive the business forward in the coming months.
