The UK’s National Association of Jewellers (NAJ) has announced the launch of the 2023 NAJ Chair’s Award, recognising the outstanding contribution of an individual or business within the jewellery industry.   

The 2023 NAJ Chair’s Award, sponsored by Presman Mastermelt, will again be presented at the Benevolent Society Christmas Ball, which will be held at the Grand Hotel Birmingham on Thursday, 7th December, 2023.

“The NAJ Chair’s Award holds a special place in my heart. As the trade association representing the whole jewellery industry, we need to recognise and celebrate the outstanding contributions of individuals and businesses who have demonstrated exceptional commitment and dedicated service to advancing the trade.”
