In a closely-fought contest at the inaugural Professional Jeweller Awards, Devon-based jewelry brand Kit Heath took home the award for Fashion Jewellery Brand of the Year.
Kit Heath sat alongside jewelry heavyweights Pandora, Thomas Sabo and Swarovski, but pipped them all to the post with only three votes between first and second place. The awards were voted for by industry peers and customers, and the win cements Kit Heath as a trusted and aspirational brand within the fashion jewelry sector.
Katie Nickell, Co-Founder and Creative Director of Kit Heath, says: “I feel enormously proud of the Kit Heath team for receiving such recognition from our industry peers and customers. Our efforts can’t have gone unnoticed; from the little things we do, the jewelry we design, the way we tell our story and the excellent level of service we give. This has all added up to us being awarded Professional Jeweller’s ‘Fashion Jewellery Brand of the Year 2017’.”
Founded in North Devon in 1984, the established brand was started by brother and sister duo Kit Heath and Katie Nickell. Kit was a gifted young designer out on the road selling his designs from the back his VW campervan, while Katie was managing their North Devon jewelry shop. 30 years on and their passion for high quality, crafted silver jewelry is still as strong as it was when they started.
When it comes to timeless silver designs that are great from everyday wear, Kit Heath know what they’re doing. They offer a wide range of price points, making them both accessible and aspirational. With an array of affordable, of-the-moment jewelry that’s perfect for gifting (or self-gifting), Kit Heath keep up with consumer trends and releases new exciting collection on a regular, seasonal basis.
